What’ll You Raise

C                    G               
Saw the lady face to face
F             C                  G   F
Who rules the Joker commands the Ace
C                              G
Just rolled in from the Golden State
C      Fmaj7/A  Dm           Am7   G  F
Just a dusty    spoke on the wheel of fate

C/E     Dm7 G      C   
What’ll you raise_____
Fmaj7       G      C                   
What’ll you raise_____
Fmaj7       G      C                           
What’ll you raise_________
C      F           G                                                               To take my hand

The rest of the verses and choruses follow the same pattern. Here's the Bridge.

Code: Select all
Dm
When there is evil
Dm                                                                                 Go to the  breeze
Am                                                                                   Who can deliver us all
Dm                                                                                   Is there a reaping
Dm                                                                                   Or any safekeeping
Am            F                                                                       If not how far can we fall
F          G     F G   F G                                                        Far can we fall?

I don't mind this tune - mind you i've only heard Hunter do it (6th track on Rock Columbia). In fact I am listening to it as I type this and my 4 year old is diggin' it - has a little groove going.

Ok wow - just heard the dead version.....speechless! I have read about how hunter and Jerry worked to get the tunes out and how they didn't always agree......all I can think is Hunter was right to stand his ground because jerry's take is gawd awful!! :lol: Wow that was a bit of a surprise.

In what way? I dont hear that. It would be interesting to just know what about it reminds you of Reuben because now I will proabably think of Reuben everytime I hear it ! :-). Tempo? Changes? To me the only similarity is maybe in the Vocal recording methods, but In my opinion Reuben is a Masterpiece and What'll you raise, not so much.

Maybe in that Hunter's versions of both are much better IMHO :smile:

When I saw Counterstriker's post this is what I thought he meant...only because it's how I see it I am sure! Hunter kills Rubin and Cherise - I've been to a couple of his shows where he rips it and it's pure magic. I didn't even hear the dead do it until a few years later (via tape) and it was a let down for sure. Through I have grown to enjoy their version to.

Sounds like Reuben and cherise to me - heard it for the first time on Sirius the other day. You can hear a 30 sec chunk on the iTunes preview. The part right after the chorus and before the verses and before the solo the music hangs on this repeating motif that sounds remarkably similar to the part in Reuben and cherise near the end where Jerry stretches out and takes the song into the end jam. The overall chord phrasing is what makes it sound similar.

The main difference being that Reuben & Cherise is a great song and What'll You Raise is terrible?

I reach for the dial every time it comes on XM.

YMMV.

Yes finally someone who hears the similarity, Reuben and Cherise is by far better, but the chord phrasing sounded familiar to me, and when i first heard it R&C came to mind, I actually like the song a bit :-)
