Matisyahu – Crossroads chords
Matisyahu's guitarist plays it with a capo on 6. I shall show you how to play it with a capo on 6 and how to play it with regular chords. Capo 6: Em|G|C Em|C|Cadd9 The chords named Cadd9 is an open C shape a whole step up; i wasn't sure how to call the chord so i named it Cadd9 (open C shape a whole step up). He plays those two combination sets of chords, and he varies the chords order in the chorus. You must figure out by ear when he's playing which chord. But ive given you the order in which he plays 9/10 of the song. You must also figure out the pattern which he plays with your ears, it is not a difficult pattern. The melody that keeps coming back is: Just when you hit the first chords (Em) you play this: ''(root on capo, ofc.).''e:|--0-----|b:|-3--1-0-| << melody lineG:|--------|D:|--2-----|A:|--2-----|E:|--0-----|He plays it with his pinky first on the 3 fret of the b string, while he strums the first Em chords and then hits the b string on 1 and than open. While he strums he plays the meldoy. ----- The chords of the song without capo:A#m|C#|F#A#m|F#|.. this would be the shape of F# a whole step up, i havent figured out yet how toplay it but i hope this tabs gives you the basis you need to play the song and fill in the resting gaps. You can play the whole song tho' with this tab and these given chords can be repeated throughout the song. ------ With capo on 6: (remeber; Cadd9 = C a whole step up, i didnt know what to call it; if u know this, please put it down below). Lyrics:EmIt's like I'm walking through this kingdom of timeG C EmThus far I've done lost my mindG COnly to find the other sideEmIs where the world opens wideG C EmTo descend these city streets late at nightG CI've been searching for my biteEmThey say I inspired, but I'm still looking for my fireG CThese lies have got me tiredI'm free falling, I'm done stalling I'm done crawling up this mountain top I won't stop till I manifest my crop The top is close I'm sky scraping They stay chasing I'm like a raisin in the sun I'm running from death's invasion They're done, I'm going gray I'm still young having mystic visions Of the one, I hear the hum, the melody comes Rushing in like some windEm C Cadd9Cuts close like a knifeEm C Cadd9All I got is my lifeEm C Cadd9All I got I got I gotEm C Cadd9Crossroads, one million milesEm C Cadd9I'm kicking up dirt when I fly byEm C Cadd9Crossroads, one million milesEm C Cadd9I'm kicking up dirt when I fly byEm G CNow the rain is falling drizzle dropping on the streetEmCleaning off the dirt beneath my feetG CI got the beat on repeatEmWhile I'm riding subway trains on a factG COver tracks to go crack, my heart's blackBut intact I've come to take the music back I'm moving forward this time you can't ignore it Put the pedal to the floor Let's take you off Through the time that has come The time has come I launch orbit I'm tight rope Walking over fiery flames, yeah hot coals I'm like water for you trolls I pay no tolls Speak to ghosts Time to go high The cross that you walk by Got my eye into Magic fly off on the broom Which way to choose I'm at the crossroads, but I'll never give my soul It's already oldEm C Cadd9Crossroads, one million milesEm C Cadd9I'm kicking up dirt when I fly byEm C Cadd9Crossroads, one million milesEm C Cadd9I'm kicking up dirt when I fly byI'm a slave to the throneThe chariot of flames is my homeI'm in a class of my ownLights out, you're all alone, with your heart of stoneO-o-o-o-o-oh-ohCrossroads, one million miles I'm kicking up dirt when I fly by Crossroads, one million miles I'm kicking up dirt when I fly by Crossroads, one million miles I'm kicking up dirt when I fly by Crossroads, one million miles
