    "Long Black Veil" as performed by dmb
      (off the CD "Listener Supported Disk II [a live disk])
         transcribed by Corey M. and is my own interpretation       of the 
song

    This is a traditional song dmb picked up, and i heard it on the live CD 
and liked it a lot, so i tabbed it out.  This song is pretty simple if you 
listen to the CD a few times you'll get the strum pattern which is hard to 
actually write out, but the riff and progression is easy.  The strums 
sometimes change; so i put in what i heard.  Also, the tabbed out strum is 
just supposed to give you a good idea of what to play, or you can listen to 
it and figure it out easily.  If you cant play the keyboards you're missing 
out on a cool solo in the middle of the song. But anyways this song contains 
3 barred chords which are these:

    C:  E----  G:  E----       F:  E----
        B---5      B---3           B---1
        G---5      G---4           G---2
        D---5      D---5           D---3
        A---3      A---5           A---3
        E----      E---3           E---1

    This is the main riff played most of the song in the verses and four 
times in the intro:

    Note: partway in the 3rd verse Dave switches to a strum instead of the 
riff 
        C   
    E-------------------------------             
    B--------5---3-3---5------------            
    G--------5---------5------------   A couple times    
    D------------------5------------              
    A---3---------------------------                
    E-------------------------------                   
       "Ten years ago...

    Then it goes...
      G           F
    E--------------------------------------
    B--------------------------1--1--1------
    G-4----4--4--4--4--4-------2--2--2------
    D-5----5--5--5--5--5-------3--3--3------
    A-5----5--5--5--5--5-------3--3--3------
    E-3----3--3--3--3--3--1-----------------
      "...someone was killed...

    This is the prechorus, play notes in parenthesis twice, except for the 
slide, play that only the 2nd time (I thought i'd tab out the strum too, but 
any strum similar will sound fine):                            F         C

    E-[------------------]----------------------------------------
    B-[-1----1----5----5-]-5--5-5-5--5--5--5----5----5--5-5-5--5-5
    G-[-2----2----5----5-]-5--5-5-5--5--5--5----5----5--5-5-5--5-5
    D-[-3----3----5----5-]-5--5-5-5--5--5--5----5----5--5-5-5--5-5
    A-[-3----3-(2/3)---3-]----3------3-----3----3----3------3-----
    E-[-1----1-----------]----------------------------------------
   "And she walks...



    Here is the refrain:
       F         C             F         G          
    E-[---------------------]--------------------
    B-[1----1----5----5--5-5]--1----1----3-------
    G-[2----2----5----5--5-5]--2----2----4-------
    D-[3----3----5----5--5-5]--3----3----5-------
    A-[3----3----3----3-----]--3----3----5-------
    E-[1----1---------------]--1----1----3----/8-
      "Nobody    knows...


    The order of this song is like so

    intro; [verse; prechorus tab; prechorus tab;  chorus;] <-- do that three 
times and then do [prechorus tab; prechorus tab; chorus; chorus] and then a 
bunch of "nobodys" played over the C chord
