1. Talk On Indolence
   Tuning: EADGBE
Tabbed By: Clearangel1


Intro: G (x3) C D 

(No Chord)
Well I've been lockin' myself up in my house for sometime now  
Readin' and writin' and readin' and thinkin'  
and searching for reasons and missing the seasons.  
The Autumn, the Spring, the Summer, the snow.  
The record will stop and the record will go.  
Latches latched the windows down,  
the dog coming in and the dog going out.  
Up with caffeine and down with a shot.  
Constantly worried about what I've got.  
Distracting my work but I can't make a stop  
and my confidence on and my confidence off.  
And I sink to the bottom and rise to the top  
and I think to myself that I do this a lot.  
World outside just goes it goes it goes it goes it goes it goes...  
and witness it all from the blinds of my window.  
THREE, FOUR  
 
Chorus:
G C DI'm a little nervous 'bout what you'll think
When you see me in my swimming trunks And last night in New York I got raging drunk Remember one time I got raging drunk with you Now, I can recall a time when we made the city Streets our playground, kissing in the fountains Filled with cigarettes and bottles Sped through Italian city streets of cobblestone Because we had to Because I loved you Because the damned alcohol Beacuse what ever at all (No Chord) Now I've grown to aware of my mortality To let go and forget about dying Long enough to drop the hammer down And let the indolence go wild and flying through Because we had to ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.

[Strum E chord, and hit 12th fret harmonics]
E AI was in love with your beauty
E AFrom the day you walked my way.
E AOh, how I wish that was enough to
E B7 EHave made me want to stay.
See, I'm as true as I try to be, And I must say my girl, I tried the best to give to you All of the truest in the world. But, when I left your house that morning in that ragged Thunderbird, I tried so hard to fight the voices From the devils that I heard. See, there's a highway to the right of us I took a year ago, And since a year ago can't drive past Without turning down that road. [Strum E chord]
G C G CAnd I knew it, I never should have turned the wheel.
G C G CAnd I knew it, the voices calling me weren't real.
G C G CI knew it, listen to the song they sing.
G C G G C GI knew I was wrong, and I knew I was wrong.
[Repeat Intro, strum E chord, and slide down from 12th Fret on low E] So, give me a try at describing Just how difficult it is, When you kind of love two girls To figure out which one you miss. Stumble away from your stairway With your perfume on my clothes. Well, I kind of loved two girls But, now I kind of lost them both. And I knew it, I never should have turned the wheel. And I knew it, the voices calling me weren't real. I knew it, listen to the song they sing. I knew I was wrong, and I knew I was wrong. And if I could gather up the damage That I've rendered in my life, Place it on a scale and weigh against The damage done that night. Then it'd be safe to say The weight of all I did and didn't do Would surly float against the lightest wrong I ever did to you. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5. Sixteen In July Tuning: EADGBE Tabbed By: Macheeoo

Left On Laura, Left On Lisa Tuning: EADGBE Tabbed By: Finn MacCool
G CNobody knows it but I am so sad
G BmNobody knows it but I am so sad
C D GAnd that is the saddest of all my girl
C D G$That is the saddest of all
G CWe climbed the ladder to the top of my house
G BmNever letting go of your hand
C D GThe sky trades the moon for the sun my girl
C D G$The sky trades the moon for the sun
G CAnd I gave to you my ugly brown coat
G BmYou made it pretty when you put it on
C D GWarmth in the early morning chill my girl
C D G$Warmth in the early April
G CThen you said you’d trade the love of a man
G BmTears fell soft from your face to my hands
C D GSaid you’d trade your heart for mine my girl
C D G$I traded my heart for those days
G CAnd you made it clear it was strictly a deal
G BmOf springtime love and that’s how I should feel
C D GSo I set the clock back an hour my girl
C D G$I set the time a just right
G CYou see somewhere back there when I was boy
G BmFurious I had become by the point
C D GThat men are just liars and thieves of sorts
C D G$Men are just liars and thieves
G CBut I still believe and I stand by my words
G BmI don’t know what you have seen or you’ve heard
C D GBut somebody’s lying to you my girl
C D G$Somebody’s lying to you
G CYou really made me believe I could stay
G BmPart with you actions in part what you said
C D GBut that was just foolish pride my girl
C D G$And those are only feelings inside
G CSo I’m going back to the place where we met
G BmI’m going to find the beer bottle we left
C D GWedged in the limbs of the tree that we sat in
C D G$Wedged in the magnolia tree
G CWell we hid for days like a proud pair of thieves
G BmToo sure we were right too stubborn too leave
C D GWasted with the moment we lifted my girl
C D GStolen forever with you

G BmIf I had known, your heart was down

C Dto really see you're all alone
Em C GBut I ll kiss your head,
Em C Gwhen death finds your bed
Cand you are gone
And if I had seen the way it would be Id hushed your cries when you came to me If I could do what I did to you the same to me then I would love for you to see that I sleep with remorse and regret hangs round my door for ever more. If I had known the lowering tide, was lowering with the way you felt inside if I had known all hope was gone a broken heart and a broken home That pierced, my lovers past and carved a lonely path... for her to walk So if ever someone one says to you, life isnt fair, get used to it Then you should say Well it might be… If folks like you won't let it be' but Ill kiss your head when death becomes my bed and I am gone ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 11.The Fall Tuning: EADGBE Tabbed By: PereiraDaMan Intro: G C G C G C D x 3 (With Harmonica Riff)

For the G and Cmaj7 during the verses, just fingerpick between mostly E, D, G, and B string with occasionally high E. The chords are the same for every verse.

Cmaj7Manhattan is where it grew
GAnd I thought to cut it from it's stem
GAnd take it from the cracks between bricks that it lay in
Cmaj7 GAnd save it from city strife
Away from the city life Then someone they whispered in my ear A county girl cant be made out of anybody here Dont touch it, it loves you not Dont touch it, it loves you not Cause blue birds dont fly without their wings And when we put them in a cage the world can't hear them sing So selfish when greed sets in Possession, the king of sin And people dont ever let you down Forever find a way to kill whatever life they've found A heart beat and I want it too Manhattan is where she grew So I left and I let the flower be And yesterday saw the flower on cable TV Much prettier than here with me For all of the world to see Much prettier than here with me ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 14.40 East Tuning: EADGBE CAPO 2 Tabbed By: Macheeoo

e|--3-0------------------------------|B|------3-0--------------------------|G|----------2-0----------------------|D|--------------2-0------------------|A|------------------3-2-0------------|E|------------------------3----------|
GNovember came and went,
C Like a summer that I spent,
D GWith a no name girl that walked in jelly shoes.
GI returned to my home,
CWith a heart part made of stone,
D GAnd I cried all night for a girl I never knew.
GFrom the east it comes,
CHer love and the rising sun,
D GAnd I pray each time they come, it's not the last.
GYou see I've got strong,
C I made it through what came along,
D GBut I can't move on for the beauty of the past.
Came across a pretty girl, For about a month she was my world, And I held her hand, and swore we'd never part. I moved on, she stayed behind, I said I'd call, she said she'd write, We lost touch the moment I drove off. I left town like a gambler with, The sense of cashin' all the chips, Before I lost them all on a bad deal. I made believe I was in a race, Drove ten thousand miles in seven days, While writing a book called "Being A Free Man". Met more people than the president, The good times came and the good times went, And I learned how to ignore my hunger pains. I looked ahead to the open road, thought about the people and what they know, And wrote a book called "People Don't Know Nothin". (no matter what they tell ya, man) Once I spent my last dime, And counted the ratio of miles to time, I looked up to my disdain and my surprise. I had driven my car around the world, Ended back in the town with the girl, So I wrote a book called "Life in Prison". (Volume. 1) I see that girl every now and then, And we drink to having such good friends, And apologize for the way it did not last. Funny thing that it's all true, And I'll always love November Blue, But I turned her down for the beauty of the past. November came and went, Like a summer that I spent, With a no name girl that walked in jelly shoes. I returned to my home, With a heart part made of stone, And I cried all night for a girl I never knew. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 17.Four Thieves Gone Tuning: EADGBE Tabbed By: Oaw19 Tuning: Standard
