Drive-by Truckers - Sounds Better In The Song tab

Song:   Sounds Better in the Song
Band:   Drive By Truckers
Album:  Decoration Day
Tuning: Normal, tuned down 1 full step
Capo:   None


NOTES:
  Written by Mike Cooley.  He normally tunes down 1 full step, Travis
  picking this one.  He makes quite a few variations on his picking
  during the interludes when playing solo, sometimes sliding up to bar
  chord versions of G and A.  On Decoration Day, Patterson and Jason
  add this decoration.

  The Travis picking for each chord is as follows:

INTRO: Bm Bm G A Bm Bm VERSE 1: G When I saw her standing there A With her bright eyes and shining hair Bm Bm She was looking back at me G Some are meant to sing A Some are meant to talk Bm Bm And some aren't meant to say a thing G When she opened up her mouth A And that sweet voice came out Bm Bm I lost track of my own name G Now she's found herself and I lost mine A And I'm just another guy Bm Bm Who can't give her anything INTERLUDE: G A Bm Bm VERSE 2: G Well the drifter he holds on A To his youth Bm Bm Just like it was money in the bank G And "Lord knows I can't change" A Sounds better in the song Bm Bm Than it does with hell to pay G I might as well of slipped that ring A On her finger from a window Bm Bm Of a van as it drove away G Now she's found herself and I lost mine A And I'm just another guy Bm Bm Who can't give her anything INTERLUDE: G A Bm Bm VERSE 3: G Dreams are given to you A When you're young enough to dream them Bm Bm Before they can do you any harm G They don't start to hurt A Until you try to hold on to them Bm Bm After seeing how they really are G She used to dream them with me A Every single crazy one Bm Bm Until they started hurting her too now she's got some of her own G And outgrowing me A Might be the best thing for her she's ever Bm Bm Done INTERLUDE: G A Bm Bm VERSE 4: G A light that shines as bright A As hers can't be kept Bm Bm In the shadows for too long G A heart that wants to live A And a soul that wants to give Bm Bm Can't just sit at home alone G Lord she's gave me everything A And never wanted anything Bm Bm I couldn't give just what was inside of me G And now she's found herself and I lost mine A And I'm just another guy Bm Bm Who can't give her anything G And now she's found herself and I lost mine A And I'm just another guy Bm Bm Who can't give her anything INTERLUDE: G A Bm Bm --crookedpath
