============================================== The Right Place tabbed by timopay t-mac@rogers.com Tuning: Standard Capo: 2 Great song. Great album. One of my new favourite Jim James efforts. Enjoy! Intro: G Gadd11 G Gadd11 G Gadd11 G Gadd11 Chorus:
C D Do you like where you're living,
GDo you like what you do
C D Do you like what youre seeing,
GWhen you're lookin at you
C DDo you like what youre saying
GWhen you open your face
C DDo you got the right feeling
GAre you in the right place
Verse 1:
G Em C D GStealin a tusk from an elephant must make one feel creepy inside
G EmAnd although youll boast around the fire at night
C D GThat ghost will kick up a fight
C D GBe gone Be gone you scream
C D GYoure just some elephant dream
C D EmI needed you like you needed me
C D GPeople they need piano keys
CHORUS Verse 2 (Same chord pattern as Verse 1): Is this right, is this right, come on God answer tonight Is there some fee that you'll charge me For doing what you thought I might Once you've thought long and hard about it, Tell me if heads will roll Once you've thought long and hard about it, Tell me cause I need to know CHORUS =============================================== Baby Boomer tabbed by LonelyHasBrown
DWe gotta stand a little closer to what it is we're leanin' on
DWho was it that first said it? Could it be he could be wrong
A7About the pilgrims and the natives
Having dinner on the lawn?
DI think if I was ever king I would buy a censorship
DWhere the only books upon the shelves Were the ones that I had written
A7Oh, and put them up in borders, set my photo down the spine
DTo tell the story of the livin' without forgettin' those who'd died
A7And I would die a happy man 'Cause I did the best that I could do
DTo find a better way of leading, Should we leave that up to you?
DWho was the one that said it, Yeah the one who said it best?
A7You got to L-O-V-E your neighbors, at least the ones who are still left
And we gotta stand a little closer To the lessons that we've learned Is it just a premonition? Could we really get ourselves both burned? I've been sent here on a mission to find what we agree upon We don't agree about September, Could we agree on Vietnam? I think if I was ever publisher I'd buy a pirate ship Where the mission at each position is to shoot and to click Clean the photos up a little, censor the ship out of it So when we put it up in borders, turn a profit on the trip Charge the public for the overhead of 1492 And if they need a better reason tell them we got livin' proof And I would die a happy man 'Cause I did the best that I could do To find a better way of leading, Should we leave that up to you Who was it that said it? Yeah that's what I'm trying to say You got to L-O-V-E your neighbors, at least the ones that live today Hey, hey ============================================= Man Named Truth tabbed by Unregistered

FTell you right now boy it aint no use
Dm Am DmDont ever buy nothin' from a man named truth.
Pain was hunting me down, but I gave him the slip I left the city through a tunnel and I headed for the sticks With oregano oil and a morphine drip Pain was hunting me down, but I gave him the slip And I fell in love with identical twins They'd lived 34 summers between the two of them I gave one my ego, gave one my id Yeah, I gotta get back to my pretty little twins Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth I'll tell you right now that it ain't no use Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth I was lost for a year in those almond trees The sun was rising in the South and setting in the East I was half awake, I was half asleep I thought I would never get out of those almond trees So don't think too slow in the syrupy sun You'll get buried alive when the caterpillar come Tapping your time on a congo drum Don't think too slow in the syrupy sun I met a black skinned man with an ice cream grin And a blond Afghan with that heroin We moved to the mountains where the highway ends And I got myself that ice cream grin So don't search too long for that Aztec gold Like old Cortez, gonna lose your soul Turn an honest man into Diablo Don't trade your soul for no Aztec gold And never buy nothing from a man named Truth Never buy nothing from a man named Truth Look in my eyes and you see the proof Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth ============================================== Goodway tabbed by The Folky

Yes. We'll drive up to the forest and wait 'til the moon is up above and we'll smear mud and pomegranate seeds on our faces, build a giant fire and wait for the sun to put it out. We'll be fed and nurtured back to health by out surrogate ample parents. You'll eat variants from the bushes. I'll learn to fly and you'll learn to fish and I'll fly down to the river to join you...and when we're strong and healthy and ready we'll return to the human world with new skills and a new perspective. We'll be free. Yours, always.
