We look at each other Wondering what the other is thinking But we never say a thing And these crimes between us grow deeper In concerts (including RTT) , DMB skips this, but it is played on Under the Table.. Continue verse strum, and sing Take these chances Place them in a box/Until a Fquieter tiDme GLights down you up and dBie A Start verse strum on "die" Goes to visit his mommy She feeds him well His concerns he forgets them And remembers being small Playing under the table and dreaming

Chorus

FTake these chancDes G B A FPlace thDem in a box/GUntil a B A Fquieter tiDme ligGhts down you up and dBie A Start verse strum on "die" Driving in on this highway
All these cars end up on the sidewalk

Candyman tempting the thoughts of a Sweet tooth tortured by weight loss Program cutting the corners there's a loose end loose end Cut Cut On the fence so not to offend Cut Cut

Chorus

FTake these chancDes G B A FPlace thDem in a box/GUntil a B A Fquieter tiDme ligGhts down you up and dBie A Start verse strum on "die" Solos alternate between chorus and verse strums finish on Lights down you up and die G D Ants Marching Dave Mathews Band Under The Table And Dreaming and Remember Two Things After watching the HOUSE OF BLUES performance many times on tape and in slo-mo here is what I have come up with

Verse

He wakes up in the morning Does his teeth bite to eat and hes rolling etc... You can cheat and play DDG / GGD Those areactually the chords Boyd plays along with dave on the fiddle

Chorus

BmTake these Dchances G Bm A Etc. Back to the DDG/GGD for the verse Follow the DDG/GGD until...
        All the little ants are marching
4D------0------------0--------------2
5A------2------------0--------------2
6E------3------------2--------------0
Repeat for Red annd black antenna... they all do it.... Back to DDG/GGD for candyman.... I can not for the life of me figure out the little shuffle that Dave plays in the verse in between the D and the G I think it goes a little something like this.
                  4D--------4---4                            D-------0---0
D and then  5A--------5 --5    then a G  then   A ------5 --5
                  6E--------0---0                            E------5---5
I have tried for a long time and that's all i can get Any corrections are appreciated as well as any other DMB songs especially Tripping Billies. Someone figure that one out.... please!?!
