However, during the chorus, the guitar plays the chords as shown. Note also the funky "Sleeping children.." bit. On the album, there is definitely a chord change implied from A to G (by the wah-wah guitar and possibly the keyboards) but the main guitar and bass play the same thing under both chords, which kind of confuses the ear.

Here's an attempt to tab the the way I'm currently playing it, with bass notes added for the piano chord part (sounds ok to my ears, although I haven't worked it out to see if it's correct.) Your mileage may vary. Feel free to jump in and correct me, show me a different way, etc. V = pluck bass notes together / = strum top three strings, alternating up & down strums

Take the way home that leads back to Sullivan Street ... In the change from D to D4, your index finger moves from the G string down to the A string, then back. Of course, this whole sequence isn't strictly repeated over and over... sometimes there are the little piano runs in between, and so on. From: Paul Hutchinson NB The verses of this are a bit harmonically strange in that, like Round Here and Time and Time Again, the guitar is not playing chords during the verses, and so the bass carries the song rather a lot. However, I get the impression that the verses are based on Dm the whole way through, with the bass guitar playing Ds and Fs (and a G just before the first verse). This should make the song horribly boring for you if you're trying to play it by yourself without a bass guitarist, but them's the breaks. On the album, the guitar and some other strange instrument are messing about with the following notes during the verses - listen to the tape to get a better idea:

I Dmtook the cannonball down to the ocean Across the desert from sea to shining sea I rode a ladder that climbs across the nation C/G Fifty million feet of earth between the buried and me "HF7M9ow do youEm7 do?" F7M9 ShC/Ge said, "HeF7M9y, how doEm7 you doF7M9?" ShDme buys a ticket cause it's cold where she comes from She climbs aboard because she's scared of getting older in the snow Love is a ghost train rumbling through the darkness C/G Hold on to me darling I've got nowhere else to go "HF7M9ow do youEm7 do?" F7M9 ShC/Ge said, "HeF7M9y, how doEm7 you doF7M9?" hey...

BlAue morning Blue morning WrGapped in strands of fist and bone CuAriosity, Kitten, DoGesn't have to mean you're on your own YoAu can look outside your window HeG doesn't have to know WeA can talk awhile, baby WeG can take it nice and slow AlDl your life is suDsus2ch a shame, shamGe, shame G7M AlDl your love is juDsus2st a dream, dreaGm, dream G7M Are you happy when you're sleeping? Does he keep you safe and warm? Does he tell you when you're sorry? Does he tell you when you're wrong? I've been watching you for hours It's been years since we were born We were perfect when we started I've been wondering where we've gone All your life is such a shame All your love is just a dream I dreamt I saw you walking up a hillside in the snow Casting shadows on the winter sky as you stood there counting crows OnAe for sorrow Two for joy, Three G/Bfor girls and four for boys FiA/Cve for silver Six for gold and Seven fG/Dor a secret never to be told There's a bird that nests inside you Sleeping underneath your skin When you open up your wings to speak I wish you'd let me in All your life is such a shame All your love is just a dream Open up your eyes You can see the flames of your wasted life You should be ashamed You don't want to waste your life I Dwalk along these hillsides In the summer 'neath the sunshine I Gam feathered by the moonlight falling down on me ChDange, change, change G NB This figure appears and is played constantly from 'I walk these hillsides' onwards.

In Ethe still water she lies down ShaDking in the press of sunlight We Arolled into Lexington SheE shakes off the drop of daylight WatEer beading up her chest BleDeding down between her knees RivAers in Kentucky flow BetEween the bluegrass wavy seas ButD oh, MarjorEie TwiDsts the knife once mAore inside of me E Breathless with anticipation Baited breathers set their hooks Tuck their heads beneath the high grass And lie and wait beside the brooks For infants pushing slowly through Frustration leading back along The alleys of a childhood Will not release us willingly But oh, Marjorie Sticks the knife in while I heard the sea

B? [repeat] Dust me off and shut me down And dream of where I haven't been Close the door inside my heart Stuck in the south Atlantic wind I have hollow eyes Haunting only to myself Even so, I can't stop calling This great big hollows in my self I took the train form California To the far side of the continent Woke up in Kentucky Where a wedding was about to end I looked up at Anna She turned back to look at me It's best to kill the ones that matter Render blind the ones who see But oh, Marjorie Takes the blade and walks away from me Oh, Marjorie Love like blood is pouring out of me Oh, Marjorie My heart won't stop bleeding over me baby [solo over F#m and B?] Oh, I can't shut it in It's got far too many doors to block the wind Oh, I can't shut it in It's got far too many doors to block the wind

WasAted in the afternEoon WaiGting on a train D I wAoke up in piecesE and Elizabeth HadG disappeared again D I wish you were inside of me Hope that you're OK I hope that you're resting quietly I just wanted to say

Chorus

Good, Goodnight, Elizabeth Goodnight Elizabeth, Goodnight Good, Goodnight, Elizabeth Goodnight, Elizabeth, Goodnight We couldn't all be cowboys So some of us are clowns Some of us are dancers on the midway Roam from town to town Well I hope that everybody Can find a little flame I say my prayers and I set myself one fire And I walk out on the wire, once again I said

Chorus

Well I wait for you in Baton Rouge I miss you down in New Orleans I wait for you while she slips in something comfortable And I miss you when I'm slipping in between If you wrap yourself in daffodils I will wrap myself in pain And If you're the Queen of California Baby, I am the King of the Rain And I said:
