The tab that up here was in another key or something, and it wasn't even correct in that key. I believe, so I figured I'd submit this. Another simple song from AJJ, yet surprisingly moving. Enjoy. Artist: Andrew Jackson Jihad Album: Only God Can Judge Me Tabber: Michael McElligott Intro: G (play primarily the bottom three strings, and then once he does a little sweep of the top strings, just listen). G I knew a woman once Am giving birth to kittens and mice C Em And as you know, with their eating habbits C D Those poor mice had to die G So the kittens were born Am full of their brothers and sisters C Em And they were punished swiftly C D though they did not know why Em C G They thought they were food Em C G they did not know what they'd done G And I was a person once Am sending off unread letters C Em receiving no reply C D never bothering asking why G I had a heart once Am full of fire and passion C Em C D but the summer took it away from me Em C G And autumn has come to retrieve it Em C G Autumn has come to retrieve it G And I was a man once Am When I was six years old C Em but now I am just a boy C D pretentious and brash and bold G The kittens were murdered Am thrown into burlap sacks C Em and weighted down with rocks C D in a river deep and black Em C G And th - ey went to Heaven. Em C G Th - ey went to Heaven. *End* *Brief Note* In the beginning of each verse, when you go from G to Am, then to C (I knew a woman once...and as you know), during that jump from the Am to the C, the bass plays A - B - C. Listening closely to the recording, you can make it out. If you don't have a bass player and would like to imitate that sound, place a A C/B chord (a C chord with C in the bass in between Am and C, right before C. That's all. I'm tabbing this without a G string on my acoustic, so I hope it sounds fine (shouldn't make a difference). Enjoy and keep supporting AJJ...incredible band that shows just how much simple chords can do.
