Dave Matthews w/Tim Reynolds

This is main riff, a D-G thing that replaces violin and sax from the
original.  It's played rather fast, but once you get the hang of it,
it sounds great.  He has Tim Reynolds playing lead on this, and well,
we won't worry about what he's doing.  All I can say is the guy makes
Dave look like an amateur...and that's saying alot!!  Download this
live version to get the feel and to hear the awesome slide work!!

(Play this riff throughout the verses, and anywhere else not otherwise noted) He wakes up in the morning Does his teeth, bite to eat and he's rolling. He never changes a thing The week ends, the week begins. She thinks, We look at each other Wondering what the other is thinking But we never say a thing And these crimes between us grow deeper. [chorus] (Main riff here) Take these chances Place them in a box until a Bm D quieter time G Bm Asus Lights down you up and die (Main riff) Goes to visit his mommy She feeds him well, has concerns he forgets them And remembers being small Playing under the table and dreaming [chorus] Bm D G Bm Asus Take these chances Bm D G Bm Asus Place them in a box until a Bm D quieter time G Bm Asus Lights down you up and die (Main riff) Driving in on this highway All these cars end up on the sidewalk People in every direction No words exchanged, no time to exchange them G Gsus Em When all the little ants are marching G Gsus Em Red and black antennas waving G Gsus Em They all do it the same G Gsus Em (Main Riff) They all do it the same way Candyman tempting the thoughts of a Sweet tooth, torturing the weight loss Program cutting the corners of a loose end, loose end, cut cut On the fence, not to offend cut cut, cut cut [chorus] Bm D G Bm Asus Take these chances Bm D G Bm Asus Place them in a box until a Bm D quieter time G Bm Asus Lights down you up and die (Main Riff) Tim Reynolds totally goes off here...amazing guitarist! Look for the G-Gsus-Em bit, followed by the chorus chords, and then finish with a couple of bars of the main riff and a big finish!! Lights down you up and die
