Ground On Down by Ben Harper
Transcription by I.Lindsay
>From the album Fight For Your Mind
Ben plays this one on a Weisenborn it's a
kind of lap steel with a hollow neck , no 
frets and built in Koa wood in the twenties
by Henry Weissenborn .

Tuning open C
e no change
B up to C
G no change
D down to C
A down to G
E down to C

The song stands on one riff with
slight variations every time you'll
have to listen to the record to
catch them :


e---------------------------------------------------------
C----12~~----0-h-2-/-3-------5~~~--------------10-/-11~~--
G----12~~----0-h-2-/-3---0---5~~~----------0---10-/-11~~--
C----12~~----0-h-2-/-3---0---5~~~----------0---10-/-11~~--
G---------------------------------------------------------

Lyrics: 

I believe in a few things
God the devil and love
'cause I've looked up from the bottom
and I've stared down from above

I have faith in a few things
divinity and grace
but even when I'm on my knees
I know the devil prays

and  you're working your way
from the ground on down

I hate to say I love you
because it means that I 
will be with you forever 
or will sadly say goodbye 

I love to say I hate you 
because it means that I 
will live my life happily without you
or will sadly live a lie 

and you're working your way
from the ground on down

life is short 
and if your lookin'for extension
with your time 
you had best do well

'cause there's good deeds 
and there's good intention 
they're as far apart 
as heaven and hell

and you're working you're way
from the ground on down
