String of Pearls
Soul Asylum
Let Your Dim Light Shine

This is a funky cyclical kinda song, that's also pretty simple to play.
Strum with a 1 1-2-3-1 rhythm (listen to the cd and you'll get it easy).
I like to play the first "E" in the series in open voicing, and the
second as a barre chord, for variety's sake.  This is my first posting,
so bear with me.  Comments/hoots of laughter to Chad (pimentec@sas.upenn.edu)

Verses A She swings a string of pearls on the corner E The streetlight reflects the light in the water D The string it snaps and the pearls go sailing E And they splash and they bounce and roll cross the wet street A As she bends to chase the pearls a car swings round the corner E She darts from the eyes of the panic struck driver D Who's racing to the delivery room E Cause in the backseat his wife is busting out of her womb Interlude A D g----2-2-2-4---7-7-7-6-- (On this set, switch to the second "E" at the end of the 3rd line) And the sack breaks and out pops the siamese twins Who grow up to become the first Presidents With two heads--are better than one He puts his heads in his hands says I gotta put my heads together I can become the best President ever And not just President fend for yourself Interlude ADAD (w/wah effect over the chords-maintain during the verse) He signs his name takes the blame for all of the names With no shame they adjourn and they leave And in walks a man with a Broom and a knife and blood on his hands And he sweeps everything under the rug And goes home to his wife and gives her a hug But his wife was not there she had just left a letter That said you'd be much better off without me Interlude ADAD w/riff And his wife took the train to her ex-lover's funeral Who died in the bathroom hit his hhead on a urinal When they got together the knowledge was carnal And the widow was at the funeral and they had quite a catfight And they fell into the hole, where the casket was resting And the preacher just left in the middle of the service Cause death he could handle, but women made him nervous And he ran to the car and he drove round the corner Interlude ADAD w/riff Then something in the street caught the light in his eyes He pulled over and pulled a pearl from the gutter He didn't know what to think So he took it home and washed it in the sink And he gave it to Sister Mary Theresa Who could not accept it so she gave it to Lisa A young prostitute who was missing a pearl On the necklace she broke-late last night Interlude w/riff til your hand falls off Happy Hackin' - UPenn 21 games undefeated Div 1-AA record From pimentec@sas.upenn.edu Sun Sep 17 00:43:56 1995 <199509170043.UAA17883@mail1.sas.upenn.edu> Subject: real ttab for string of pearls-soul asylum To: guitar@nevada.edu Date: Sat, 16 Sep 1995 20:43:52 -0400 (EDT) Cc: pimentec@sas.upenn.edu X-Mailer: ELM [version 2.4 PL23-upenn2.9] MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=%#%record%#% Content-Length: 4985 Status: O --%#%record%#% Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Content-Length: 253 Hey!
