Dave Matthews Band – Gravedigger Acoustic tab

The thing you have to remember about this song is that Dave improvs a lot so nothing
written down is going to be completely right. At the beginning, he hammers from Amadd9
to Am (|-02200| to |-02210|) and does so throughout the entire song. Listen to whole
song to figure out when else. The chord placement is going to be a little strange, but
I tried to copy where the chords actually change (or are emphasized). And sometimes,
an E7 sounds better, but it's up to you.

Am    |-02210|
Am/G  |302210|
Bb    |-13331|
C     |-32010|
Dsus2 |--0230|
Dm    |--0231|
Dm7   |--0211|
E     |022100|

Am                  G6
Cyrus Jones 1810 to 1913
E                                              Am
Made his great-grandchildren believe you could live to a hundred and three
Am                                         G6
a hundred and three is forever when you're just a little kid
E                    Am
so Cyrus Jones lived forever


when you dig my grave
could you make it shallow
        Am      G              Dsus2
so that I could feel the rain

Am                G
Myrial Stonewall 1903 to 1954
E                              Am
lost both of her babies in the second great war
now you should never have to watch
as your only children are lowered in the ground
E                                Am
you should have to bury your own babies


Dm              Dm7    C  G Bb G
Ring around the rosey
Dm             Dm7    C  G Bb G
Pocket full of posey
Dm       Dm7   C  G Bb G
Ashes to ashes
Dm   Dm7    C        G
         We all fall down


Am                     G  
Little Mickey Carson '67 to '75
            E                             Am
He rode his bike like the devil until the day he died
              Am                                    G
When he grows up he wants to be Mr. Vertical on the flying trapeez
E         Am
1940 to 1992

*Chorus* 2X

Am G F E
Am G F E
