Drive-by Truckers - Tornadoes tab


Off of The Dirty South

This ones pretty simple, just one chord progression and then a riff.

Intro: Dmaj Amaj Gmaj Dmaj

Verse 1:
Dmaj                          Amaj
The clouds started forming at five o'clock pm
Gmaj
The funnel clouds touched down
           Dmaj
five miles north of Russellville
Dmaj                  Amaj
Sirens were blowing, clouds spat rain
Gmaj                          Dmaj
and as the things came threw, it sounded like a train

Verse 2:
"It came without no warning" said Bobbi Jo McLean
She and husband Nolen always loved to watch the rain
It sucked him out the window, he ain't come home again
All she can remember is "It sounded like a train"

Bridge: (no chord, play riff 4x before lyrics, but mix it up some)----------------|------5---------|4-7-4---7-4-5/7-|----------------|----------------|----------------|
I've put an X at about where you should start the riff X X Pieces of that truck stop, litter up the highway, I been told X Dmaj And I hear that missing trucker ended up in Kansas Amaj Gmaj Dmaj (or maybe it was Oz). Dmaj Amaj Gmaj Dmaj Verse 3: The Nightmare Tour ended for my band and me the night all the shit went down A homecoming concert, the night the tornadoes hit my hometown. The few who braved the weather got sucked out the auditorium I can still remember the sound of their applause in the rain as it echoed through them storm clouds, I swear, It sounded like a train.
