			     Shaker Hymns - Dry The River
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Henry Ngo	
Email: fossaland@gmail.com

Tuning: Half-step Down

It's a bit tricky to play and sing at the same time because of the timing, but 
it's a very catchy tune. 
Email me with any comments, questions, or corrections regarding the tab!
Have fun!

	       good
		
	 	  E                           C#m               B
 	 In the morning I'm light, but in the evening I'm heavy now

       		     E                    C#m           B
 	 Try as I might, I just can't keep it steady now

	        B      C#m          
	    oooooooo, oh my love

		   E                         Abm
 	 ooooh ooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhohohohohohoooooooooooooo
	

And you play E and Abm and 'ooo' for the rest of the song.

Great tab! I tune the G down a whole step instead of half and play all the G-string notes one fret up, makes it a bit easier in some bits - e.g. for the first chord you can play 11,11,9,9 instead of 11,11,9,8 and Bsus4 (799977) instead of 7998. And at the end, E is played as Esus4 etc
