Subject: ALBUM : Buffalo Tom "Big Red Letter Day" v0.90

Ok,
	here it is again by request. Please note that I still need two songs,
and just haven't found the time lately to figure them out myself. The major
change in this release is the correction of alot of lyrics, thanks to Fred
Hamilton. Enjoy !

Ok, being inspired by all the other people putting compilations of albums on the
net, I figured that it was time to start something myself. I have included in
this file some tabs and crds of songs of this GREAT album by Buffalo Tom.
I don't know if the songs provided are correct. I DO know that some of the
lyrics typed are not correct. I have listened to some songs over and over
again, and just can't figure out what is being said.
If anyone has any additions, corrections, or extra info for the songs OR the
lyrics for this album then please contact me. In return I will award you with
eternal fame as your name will appear in the credit list. Hope someone will
enjoy this. If you don't know the album, BUY IT !!!, it's well worth your money.
Also, don't pay too much attention to the chord names. My chord theory is no
good, so they are bound to be wrong. Again, corrections are welcome !
Here yah go,
	Alexander.

The last four measures are repeated throughout the verse.

The "Could my eyelids" progression looks like this:

 G       -       -       -    Gsus2(add C#)-       -       -

play the intro between verses.  The little phrase he throws in between verses
looks like this:

|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|the intro

The "solid angle" progression is just arpeggiations of the intro.

The song ends with a couple more measures of arpeggiation and then the
last two measures of the outro again.

Lyrics :
	Watch an eyeball
	Take a free fall
	At the mention of a name
	In it's socket
	Like a rocket
	Rises just the same

	But could my eyelids
	Cover what I did
	The shutting of the door
        Could these ceilings
	Contain my feelings
	Me down on the floor

	Jerked my fountain
	and ice cream mountain
	I suppose I'm just too late
	Form a line here
	I think I'll die here
	These people nauseate me

	But if my patience
	Were a spaceship
	High up in orbit
	Then I would rise here
        Hypnotized here
	Listen where I sing
        Risen from where I sit

	A solid angle
	My legs do dangle
	Off the counter's edge
	Soft words spoken
	Promises broken
	Close my eyes instead

	But could my eyelids
	Cover what I did
	The shutting of the door
	Could these ceilings
	Contain my feelings
	Me down on the floor
	Me down on the floor
	Me down on the floor
	Me down on the floor

SONG : I'm Allowed

Note: the chord progression stays the same throughout the song. Listen to the
song to get some sort of a picking pattern. Meanwhile you can get away with the
following.

                      the strums that I use, Alexander) :

Another version provided by Ed Cheng :
>...and the way I do the chorus (different from Efren's):
>Bb   C7sus9(x35333x)   E

Listen to the strumming pattern, it's not difficult at all.

      Gm              Csus2
	Waited for an answer
	      EbMaj9        Bbm
	But I waited for 25 years
      Gm                Csus2
      They stopped my bleeding
		  EbMaj9               Bbm
	But could never stop all those tears

      Gm                     Csus2
	I waited for the day when
		EbMaj9                    Bbm
	He came out from beneath all that weight
      Gm           Csus2
	I tried to lift it
	       EbMaj9
	But it seems I got there too

	Bb5   C5  Eb5
	Late
		Bb5     C5     Eb5
	Just to late
		Bb5     C5     Eb5
	Just to late
		    Bb5 C5     Eb5     Bb5
	Cause I'm allo_________wed

Note : Music repeats in the same manner from here....

	Came to the party
	But I got my own signals crossed
	Thought I was welcome
	But I felt like I should get lost

	I know that I'm older
        Cause I feel that everywhere
	I could talk to no one
	Cause I knew not one person

	There
	No one's there
	They just stared
	But they're allowed

        As vivid as a car wreck
        Watch them dripping off highway ramps
	She came to me smiling
	Her heart underneath both her hands

	She spoke of a French boy
	At least two times through the night
        It could have been the liquor
	Or the music but that is

	All right
	That's all right
	She's allowed
	And I'm allowed
	I'm allowed
	I'm allowed
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SONG : I'm Allowed (version provided by Efren)

Place a capo on the third fret for this song.  Tabs are given for
when the third fret is capoed.   The chord names above the tabs are
the relative open chords for when the third fret is capoed, with the
real chord names in parentheses.

Basically, there is one major chord progression:
(Rhythm pattern is not completely correct - listen to the recording
to get the right pattern)

h=hammer on
p=pull off

  Em(Gm)  -       -       -        Am(Cm)  -       -       -
e|--------0-----------------------|--------------------------------|
b|--------0-------------------1-1-|1---1---1p0-----0-h-1-----------|
g|--------0-------------2-0-0-----|2-------2-------2---------------|
d|2-------2-----------------------|2-------2-----------------------|
a|2-------------------------------|------------------------0---2---|
E|0-------------------------------|--------------------------------|

 C(Bb)   -       -       -        G(Bb)    -       D/F#(F/A)
|--------------------------------|3--------3-------2-----2-3-2----|
|------------1---1-------1-------|3--------3-------3-----3----3---|
|0---------------0-0-0---0-------|0--------0-------2-----2--------|and back to
|0---h---2-------0---0---0-------|0--------0-------0--------------|  Em
|3-------3-----------------------|2----------------0--------------|
|--------------------------------|3----------------2--------------|

The change during "noone's there" line is just this progression for
four measures:
 G(Bb)   -       Am(Cm)  -        C(Bb)   -       -       -
|3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---|3---3---3-----------------------|

|2---2---2---2---0---0---0---0---|3---3---3-----------------------|
|3---3---3---3-------------------|--------------------------------|
then play   G    D/F#     E     into the main progression again.

solo (played over the main progression):
 Em(Gm)  -       -       -        Am(Cm)  -       -       -

SONG : Treehouse        (version provided by Jeremy)

 Here is the intro and verse for "Treehouse":

  G                                Cadd9

  1 a & a 2 a & a 3 a & a 4 a & a  1 a & a 2 a & a 3 a & a 4 a & a

A|5-------5-----3-5---3---5---3---|3-------3-----3-3---3---3---3---|
E|3-------3-----3-3---3---3---3---|--------------------------------|

 This pattern is used for almost the whole song, eith the exception
 of the end of the chorus which is just D   C   D   C
 then back to the above.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SONG : Tree House (version provided by Efren)

	This is a pretty easy song - just G C and D chords. Listen
to the cd for the rhythm.  You can capo the third fret if you want
(I've seen Bill do that in concert), but it isn't necessary.  Chords
are written for no capo.

Main progression:
switch between a G-G7 chord and a Csus2-Cmaj7sus2 chord.
G-G7    Csus2-Cmaj7sus2
3       3
3       3
4       5p4h5
5p3p5   5
5       3
3       X

2nd progression:
(at the "way up in the trees"-type lines)
switch between a D chord and a C-Csus4 chord
D      C-Csus4
5      3
7      5h6p5
7      5
7      5
5      3
X      X

at the "rotted to the core" part, it's just a G and Csus2 progression

lyrics:(need lots of help)
Seasons change and I have found you
Looks like you've been here a long time
Looks like you're here to stay
And I reason that that's ok
When though, when will you be leaving

You're way up in the trees
Or afloat on the seas
I can't afford your voice
but I have no choice

Your bird drizzles forth twice nightly
And I once held on to you so tightly
You were made of wood and cried that no one understood
But I had splinters in my fingers

Tears welled in my eyes
no surprise
Washed swiftly from the sands
Into my hands
Into my hands

Treehouse, your mind is like a treehouse
And I climb up the shaky ladder
Your bird flies with you in claws of orange hue
I watch you flying over my head

You could not care less
So you got more
Like driftwood from the shore
You were rotten to the core
rotten to the core

Seasons change...

strummed, instead of only the bass note.

Bridge :
During the bridge basically 3 chords are used : Bm (x24432), C5 (x355xx),
						and Amin (x02210)

	Could I have been misled
	Could you have misread
	Please don't punish me
	For things I have not said

        The last's a lonely mile
        I'll remember it for a while
        You'll never speak to me
        Unless it's to revile

        Will not be denied
        Will not be denied
        Will not be denied
        Will not be denied
        Will not be denied

SONG : Would Not Be Denied   (version provided by Efren)

This is probably the only Buffalo Tom song that I find it
easier to play with barre chords.  Listen to the recording to
get the right rhythm.

Main progression:
Mainly just a C and Bm progression.  Lead up to the C by playing
ascending A and B notes on the fifth string, and add the
minor 6th to the Bm chord:
    C     Bm-sus6min(? is this the right name?)
    3     2h3
    5     3
    5     4
    5     4
0-2-3     2
    X     X
after repeating this progression a number of times (varies in the song)
play an Am chord. (high to low strings:01220X)

The "Will not be denied" part is the same progression with overdriven
guitars.

2nd progression:
At the "if not for innocence"part is just this progression
(same chord formations without the add-ons)
|Bmin          |C            |
|Bmin          |C      Amin  | (repeat 2x)
play with overdriven guitars.

	Bouncing off of a brick wall
        Into the day

	Going
	Going I'm gone
	Go away
	Going

	Gone
	I am gone I am gone
	Go away

SONG : Latest Monkey (version provided by Efren)

Capo the third fret again to play open chords. The chord names are the
relative open chords for when the third fret is capoed, with the real
chord names in parentheses. (Tabs are also with a capo on the third fret)
Opening chord progression is:

| G(Bb)     A(C) | C(Eb)     G(Bb) | G(Bb)     A(C) | C(Eb)               |

Progression 2 (played twice through the verses) is:

| G(Bb)      C(Eb) | Em/B(Gm/D)  Em5(Gm5) | Asus2(Csus2)       |  C(Eb)     |

The progression through the chorus is similar to the opening progression, just
add that high Bb on the first string to all the chords
(i.e. for when the third fret is capoed:  G(Bb)     A(C)    C(Eb)  )
				       e   3         3       3
				       b   3         2       1
				       g   0         2       0
				       d   0         2       2
				       a   2         0       3
				       E   3         X       X
|  G(Bb)   |  A(C)   |     C(Eb)   |   G(Bb)   ) (repeat twice)

 the mini-solo played before the second verse looks like this:
    (played over progression 2)
h=hammer on  s=slide
p=pull off
e-------------0-------0-------------------------------0h3---3---------|
b-0---1---3---------------1---0---0h1p0---1---0---------------------0-|

g--------------2--------0-----------------------------------0---------|
d------------------2--------0---2---------------------------0---------|
a---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------|

the "sadder than sad" progression is just the same as the opening progression
(repeat the first two measures 3 times and then play the last two measures to
lead  into the next verse)

the song ends on the intro progression.

SONG : Dry Land

I wanted to add my version to this song, if you don't own a capo you could try
something like this. It's probably not perfect but sounds allright to me !
(Lyrics are provided by Efren)
The chords I use (No Capo !) : Gsus2 = 300033
			       GMaj9 (F# Bass) = 200032
			       G(No 3rd) (D Bass) = xx0033
			       D = xx0232
			       Am = x02210
Intro : Gsus2 GMaj9 G(No 3rd) GMaj9 (repeat twice)
	Am d Am d
 lyrics:

 Gsus2            GMaj9
	She comes to me
G(No 3rd)      GMaj9
	In her pre-washed bright blue jeans
 Gsus2      GMaj9
	Bag sewn tightly
G(No 3rd)      GMaj9
	Pursed lips are kissing me
 Gsus2                   GMaj9
	Back up to college
G(No 3rd)          GMaj9
	Just a few miles down the road
 Gsus2           GMaj9
	And we remember
G(No 3rd)         GMaj9
	Something we've never been told

  Am                   D
	Come up on dry land
			     Amin
	I've had too much to drink
			        D
	I'm tired and need some sleep

Note : Music repeats in the same manner from here....

	Come September
	Cold mornings open up
	Make incisions
	And cut egos will erupt
	What did you find
	Hidden in your mind's deep recess
	When the going gets tough
	You and I must take a rest

	Come up on dry land
	Your coming into your own
	But hey that's not my fault

	Come up on to this Dry Land
	Won't you let me lend a hand
	Come up on to this Dry Land

        And when I surfaced
        Mountains opened up like fish
        Breathe through gills now
        And I'm making one small wish
        With heaven beside me
        There is no one can do me harm
        But the devil inside me
	At least then I can stay warm

	Come up on dry land
	She understood her fate
        You can't take stands
        Too late

	Come up on to this dry land
	Won't you let me lend a hand
	Come up on to this dry land

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SONG : Torch Singer

The chords I use for this song are : GMaj9 (F# Bass) = 200032
				     Csus2 = x30033
				     G = 320033
Listen to the song for the strumming pattern, it isn't difficult.

    G                GMaj9
	These things crawl across my floor
  Csus2             GMaj9
	I can't use them anymore
    G             GMaj9
	There's a heaven in her band
  Csus2           GMaj9        Csus2 GMaj9 Csus2 GMaj9
	Alleluias in my hand

Note : Music repeats in the same manner from here....

        All my patience love's insides
        She's just climbed the stage and died
        Lights that rose and fell again
        Songs that thinned out near the end      Oho
  Csus2                                G
	Her voice travelled off in the end

	Though your miles are more than mine
        The things I've taken in a bind
        It's for certain, it's for sure
        I've no use for them no more

        Making room within one's self
        For another's song to help
        And it all comes back to me
        As I walk hungover down the street

	oho
    G          GMaj9             Csus2      GMaj9
	And it all comes back to me (And it all comes back to me)
	And it all comes back to me (And it all comes back to me)
	And it all comes back to me (And it all comes back to me)

        As I walk hungover down the street
        She's a mother in disguise
        I look different in her skies

        But it's morning so I say
        Here's a big red letter day
        Her skin's like whitewash like skim milk
        Her words sing softly just like silk

        There are some things I've got to say
        She won't understand anyway
        There are miles between our hearts
        There's salvation in false starts

	Oho
	I'm forsaken in the end (I'm forsaken in the end)
	I'm forsaken in the end (I'm forsaken in the end)
	I'm forsaken in the end (I'm forsaken in the end)
	I'm forsaken in the end (I'm forsaken in the end)

   I hope you know I would

LYRICS:
-------
I close my door at night,
But they get in all right,
And she turns on the light.

I, I held her hands so tight,
'Cause words don't come out right,
And she sees things at night.

But me, I'm closer to the door,
I don't get scared no more,
But I don't know the score.

(CHORUS:)
If I could hold them in my hand,
I'd make them understand.
I'm not a haunted mind,
I'm not a thoughtless kind.

If I could put them in a jar,
I know they wouldn't scar,
I do it if I could,
I hope you know I would.

I close my door at night,
But she gets in all right
So I turn on the light.

I held her hand too tight,
Too hard to make it right,
So I could sleep at night.

(END:)
I do it if I could,
I hope you know I would. (3x)

Intro:  G   D   C   (X2)  ...same chord progression continues throughout verse

The moon was full your whisky sour
Oh girl there's no need to be so down
Cause when you walk with me in the beginning of the day
You say I don't need anything that way

I'm wishing things could be the same
When things got broken you came
My moods were always changing they were blue then brown then grey
You say I don't need anything that way
You say I don't need anything that way

D            Em
I'm fighting tooth and nail
A
Against these demons in my head
No matter where I'm sleeping
My history's right there in bed

When things blew open you flew in
I was caught red-handed once again
Was I really robbing you of the best days of your life
I'm sorry I never meant anything that way

G   D   C
G   D   C
G   D   Em   C(use 8th fret barre chord)
G   D   C

The mailman came this way today
He said no sir I've got nothing for you today
Went outside in the morningtime but I got lost along the way
You say I don't need anything that way
No no I don't need anything that way
Oh no I don't need anything that way

I don't need anything that way that way
I don't need anything that way
