Morning Theft ~Jeff Buckley
tabbed by Jake Sibel

this is just a transcription of the chords to the song, it's not note for note. you'll
need to listen to the cd to get the feel of it, and figure out some of the fills, but
this is a beautiful song, and this should at least get you stated playing it. it should
be pretty accurate, but Jeff uses some obscure chords in his music.

Or any day you want
Dm5           Cm5
I have no right to wonder
Bb5               Cm5
Just how, or when

You know the meaning fits
           F5                 F4
There's no relief in this

I miss my beautiful friend
