Dave Matthews Band - 'Dreams of Our Fathers'
From the Album 'Everyday'
tuning - B E A D F# B  Baritone Guitar (7-string could be used)
tabbed by jjhand

Use a good reverb for this song since the guitar sound is so deep. If you 
don't have a Baritone, most of it can be played on a normal guitar & some chords 
can be played in a higher position to be similar. Its a great song, 
so please rate or comment so I can do the best job on it.

Lyrics:
"Oh, I’m choking, I’m choking
On the smoke from this burning house
I claw and I scrape
But I can’t seem to get out
But who then, who is this
That’s scratching from the ground
Oh, it’s my world, too
But whose gold is this I’m digging out?"

"When we go, where we go
When we’re dead, is the verdict still out?
Do we get into line
To line up with those long dead now?
With the muffled tears of sorrow
Bones underground
Is this time our time? Yes, it is
Without or with this shadow of doubt"





Chorus - play 4x

1. "I don’t want to wake up            Lost in the Dreams of our Fathers"
2. "Oh, it’s such a waste child, to live and die for the Dreams of our Fathers"
3. "Though I must confess, yes...     My view is a wonder about this"
4. "This love I possess, love...     Must be the Dreams of our Fathers"





Verse 2 - Play Verse Riff again

Lyrics:
"I wanna go, I wanna run
We turn, so sure someone’s looking down
It’s haunting me, haunting me
Leaves us here to get out
Though I don’t believe, I don’t believe
This flavor in my mouth
Is from my tongue alone
So bitter I wanna spit it out"

"I repeat these words, they come out
Under the blue light in the sky
My empty pages are filling up
With these wicked lies
But I hear deep in myself
An echo, an echo Of empty, 
empty emptiness
Comes up and swells inside"





Play Chorus Again




Bridge (2:05) - play 4x, let ring

4.   "Rain on my love, again and again why can’t I dream you away from me?"





Verse 3- Same as before (play Main Riff 3x, then Verse Ending)

Lyrics:
"Look here, look here bloated, 
floating... go belly down
Belly up in the water
But who is this here that’s drowned?
We followed a drunken man
He got us all spinning round
But it’s like he swallowed himself
And didn’t leave us a way out"





Final Chorus (2:50) - Play Chorus Riff again and continue repeat as Dave 
varies the lyrics and music fades out.
