Intro-Verse riff

E One More Astronaut in black skin of universe, One more travelin' man, with heavy tired eyes, feelin' cold
(Riff 2)----------------------------------9---------------7-------7-7--9---9----9-------------- x2--------------------------------------------Feelin' cold
Thinkin' around the clock of drinkin' on the job of the, powdered and piss bags, never havin' sex growin' old. (Riff 2) growin' old. Chorus: E G Headspace, alive and painless, weightless and almost sane I, D A close my eyes, I become the sky E G Headspace, alone and shameless, can't wait to find the faces, D E I left behind in a, troubled time back home. Verse 2: It gets so lonely you know, weeks and months alone, chasing sleep and space junk, and the dying stars I've known and loved (Riff 2) known and loved Through true decline of the, 5 million minds or so, through mud slides and earthquakes, the blue one hold and rolls along (Riff 2) rolls along. CHORUS Verse 3: One more astronaut in endless old universe with, one more second chance at, wonderin' why he's here at all. CHORUS Verse 4: Bold are the ones who, come over the to fall, over the horizon, never ones to fade away, (PLAY CHORDS FOR CHORUS) And then it hit me, this cosmic pull and energy, it kinda makes me wonder if, I'll ever make it back home. - One More Astronaut - - by I Mother Earth - tabbed by Craig Knowles I really hope I didn't make this too complicated. It is an easy song, but I think I might have tabbed it to death. All the parts should be here. Just look at the times above the staff to figure out which part is which if you have trouble following. Enjoy. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Notation: x - muted note h - hammer-on (0) - ghost note / - slide up p - pull-off b - bend up 13b(14) - bend from 13 to 14 ~ - vibrato -------------------------------------------------------------------- The number in brackets is the time at which to tab occurs (on CD). -------------------------------------------------------------------- For the intro, make some cool 'space-like' sounds with alot of muting and stuff.

Song Order: ~~~~~~~~~~ Part I Part II Part III Part IV x2 Part V Part IV x2 Part V Part VI Part V Outro - same chords as chorus; just not as heavy - 2x Part II Craig Knowles University of New BrunswickTab: "One More Astronaut" by I Mother Earth Album: Scenery and Fish This song is quite easy to play, and since the tab posted was wrong, I thought I'd post this one. I'm pretty sure of how this is played, since I've seen them live twice.

That's about it,I think. This is a fun improvising song anyways, so feel free to alter this, it'll probably even sound better that way. Direct usual chatter to : allen09@cn.ca(jamie)
