Code: Select all
A                         D C#m Bm A Bm
But I'm here by the road, bound to the load
Bm                                         E
That I picked up in ten thousand cafes and bars
A                                            D C#m Bm A Bm
Alone with the rush of the drivers who won't pick me up
Bm                                         E
The highway, the moon, the clouds, and the stars

Wasn't Bobby using some different lyrics when they brought the song back in the 90's?

Fun to play, but typical Bob wierdness with the funky chords and rhythms. :?

Funky, or painful? To me, the start of the chorus sounds very "contrived" ("BTW, keeps on pourin" part)... I've played this in a Dead cover band, & I tell ya, someone always misses it (probably b/c we never practiced!).

Still, IMHO, sounds like Weir & Barlow concocted this, as well as some other sections of this tune. Shame, cuz other parts of the song I like :cry:

Chorus Correction

Postby Hank Quinlan » Sat Jul 23, 2005 3:06 pm

D C#m A
Black throated wind, keeps on pouring in
Em C A
With its words of a life where nothing is new
D C#m A Em A
Ah, mother american night, I'm lost from the light
G D A
Oh, I'm drowning in you
__________________________________________________

OK the formatting got messed up with copy/paste but I highlighted the missing chord in red. After listening to a loop of the chorus for 20 minutes, I'm fairly certain this is correct-- at least on the 05-03-72 Paris recording.

P.S. Isn't all original music "concocted?"

Does anyone know the "lead rythm" line that is played over the acoustic part on the Ace version of this song?

No. It's a play on partial chords playing the 3rds and 5ths.

Code: Select all
     A     G    A      C     Bm    A   G    F#m
E|---------------------12----10----9----7----5-----
B|--10----12----14---------------------------------
G|---------------------12----11----9----7----6-----
D|--11----12----14---------------------------------
A|-------------------------------------------------
E|-------------------------------------------------

It is a shame because I happen to love the whole song. Especially the chorus. I think it sounds raw as hell there lol Kinda hardcore in a sense haha. But of course the ending is the best part. 11/14/72 Amazing BTW.
