Yeah, I know this is a dumb question but I'm gonna ask anyway. Does anyone have the chord for "Can't Come Down"? If not chords atleast what key is it in? I figured out "Hog for You" and "Oh, Boy" from Skull and Roses, and I was all gung ho when I got to this song thinking I might get it, I gan't even figure out what key it's in! :? So if anyone has the chords of at least the key I'd be a happy camper. Thanks.

Wrapped in mother's winding sheets
A	   G		A	  G
Asbestos boots on flaming feet
A	   G     A	    G	
Dreaming of forbidden treats
A    G           A	   G	
When uniforms on nighttime beats 
A	 G		A	   G		
Ask me where I'm going and what I eat
A        G		   A		G
I answer them with a voice so sweet

C			 A									 I can't come down, I've been set free
A	  G	    D		 E	    D				  E			 Who you are and what you do don't make no difference to me
I placed the chords where I think they go best. Tell me if I'm close.
P.S. Hopefully the chords stay in place.

So Ive been listening to the Dead since 85.

they only played it live once... january 7th 66 at the matrix

weir: "Well, we wrote all the music and Jerry wrote the lyrics. Jerry excused himself for a moment and went off. He came back with a couple verses and we put together a chorus"


this is all from that annotated lyrics book. cant come down is actually the first song in that book
