John Butler Trio – Zebra tab ver. 3

Original Artist : John Butler Trio
Song : Zebra
Album : Sunrise Over Sea
Tuning : Open C (eCGCGC) | If you're having trouble, here's a tuning track |
No capo (I play it with a slide sometimes, especially when performing solo )

The original is played on a 12 string, this is just a simplified 6 string version, but 
it's essentially the same
Listen for the mutes and strumming pattern or just go with the flow

/ = slide. I can be loud man, I can be silent I could be young man or I could be old. I can be a gentleman, I can be violent. I could turn hot man or I can be cold. I could be just like the calm before the storm both, Waiting for all hell yeah to break loose. I could be innocent or I could be guilty Doesn't mean that I don't believe in no noose So I'm singin' I could be rich like a wandering Gypsy I could be poor like a fat wallet lost. I could be first man or I could come last It's not who breaks the ribbon boy it's how you get across. I could be red blue black and white sunset Or darkest at day boy or brightest at night I could be the sun man I could be the moon I'm made up from the stars boy I shining so bright. So I'm singin' I could be asleep boy, or I could be awake I can be alive or a be the walking dead I can be ignorant, or I could be informed (Yes sir) I could lead my life man or I could be led (That's right) I can be anything I put my mind to boy All I gotta do is give myself half a chance I can bring love back into my life And share it with the world if I got some balance So I'm singin' I'll upload a short mp3 to my UG profile as an example to help people along :) If you have any questions, suggestions, tab requests or (god forbid) corrections - please contact me at or Mr.Pink101 on
