Dear god, I see your face in all I do 
G         C               Am              G
Sometimes it's so hard to believe in 
Am      G                    Am           G
Good god I know you have your reasons

And then I'm back behind the glass again 
Am     G                     Am               G
Oh god what keeps you out it keeps me in

Still around why do we suffer? Why do we suffer?

The Right Place
tabbed by timopay t-mac@rogers.com


Tuning: Standard
Capo: 2

Great song. Great album. One of my new favourite Jim James efforts. Enjoy!


Intro: G Gadd11 G Gadd11 G Gadd11 G Gadd11

Chorus:
                        C      D                      
Do you like where you're living,  
                     G
Do you like what you do 
                       C     D                     
Do you like what youre seeing,  
                     G
When you're lookin at you 
                       C     D
Do you like what youre saying
                   G
When you open your face 
                     C       D
Do you got the right feeling
                     G
Are you in the right place 


Verse 1:

G                      Em            C             D      G
Stealin a tusk from an elephant must make one feel creepy inside
    G                               Em
And although youll boast around the fire at night
C               D         G
That ghost will kick up a fight
C       D           G
Be gone Be gone you scream
C               D        G
Youre just some elephant dream
C        D        Em
I needed you like you needed me
C           D          G
People they need piano keys 

CHORUS

Verse 2 (Same chord pattern as Verse 1):

Is this right, is this right, come on God answer tonight
Is there some fee that you'll charge me
For doing what you thought I might
Once you've thought long and hard about it,
Tell me if heads will roll
Once you've thought long and hard about it,
Tell me cause I need to know

CHORUS

Baby Boomer
tabbed by LonelyHasBrown


D
We gotta stand a little closer to what it is we're leanin' on
D
Who was it that first said it? Could it be he could be wrong
          A7
About the pilgrims and the natives

Having dinner on the lawn?

           D
I think if I was ever king I would buy a censorship
D
Where the only books upon the shelves Were the ones that I had written
        A7
Oh, and put them up in borders, set my photo down the spine
             D
To tell the story of the livin' without forgettin' those who'd died
    

       A7
And I would die a happy man 'Cause I did the best that I could do
          D
To find a better way of leading, Should we leave that up to you?


D
Who was the one that said it, Yeah the one who said it best?
           A7
You got to L-O-V-E your neighbors, at least the ones who are still left

And we gotta stand a little closer
To the lessons that we've learned
Is it just a premonition?
Could we really get ourselves both burned?
I've been sent here on a mission to find what we agree upon
We don't agree about September,
Could we agree on Vietnam?

I think if I was ever publisher I'd buy a pirate ship
Where the mission at each position is to shoot and to click
Clean the photos up a little, censor the ship out of it
So when we put it up in borders, turn a profit on the trip
Charge the public for the overhead of 1492
And if they need a better reason tell them we got livin' proof

And I would die a happy man
'Cause I did the best that I could do
To find a better way of leading,
Should we leave that up to you

Who was it that said it?
Yeah that's what I'm trying to say
You got to L-O-V-E your neighbors, at least the ones that live today
Hey, hey

Man Named Truth
tabbed by Unregistered


Dm                           Am        Dm
Dont ever buy nothin' from a man named truth.

Dm                           Am        Dm
Dont ever buy nothin' from a man named truth.

F
Tell you right now boy it aint no use

Dm                           Am        Dm
Dont ever buy nothin' from a man named truth.


Pain was hunting me down, but I gave him the slip
I left the city through a tunnel and I headed for the sticks
With oregano oil and a morphine drip
Pain was hunting me down, but I gave him the slip

And I fell in love with identical twins
They'd lived 34 summers between the two of them
I gave one my ego, gave one my id
Yeah, I gotta get back to my pretty little twins

Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth
Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth
I'll tell you right now that it ain't no use
Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth

I was lost for a year in those almond trees
The sun was rising in the South and setting in the East
I was half awake, I was half asleep
I thought I would never get out of those almond trees

So don't think too slow in the syrupy sun
You'll get buried alive when the caterpillar come
Tapping your time on a congo drum
Don't think too slow in the syrupy sun

I met a black skinned man with an ice cream grin
And a blond Afghan with that heroin
We moved to the mountains where the highway ends
And I got myself that ice cream grin

So don't search too long for that Aztec gold
Like old Cortez, gonna lose your soul
Turn an honest man into Diablo
Don't trade your soul for no Aztec gold

And never buy nothing from a man named Truth
Never buy nothing from a man named Truth
Look in my eyes and you see the proof
Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth

Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth
Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth
Don't ever buy nothing from a man named Truth

Yes. We'll drive up to the forest and wait 'til the moon is up above and
 we'll smear mud and pomegranate seeds on our faces, build a giant fire and 
wait for the sun to put it out. We'll be fed and nurtured back to health by
 out surrogate ample parents. You'll eat variants from the bushes. I'll 
learn to fly and you'll learn to fish and I'll fly down to the river to join
 you...and when we're strong and healthy and ready we'll return to the human
 world with new skills and a new perspective. We'll be free. Yours, always.

Map of the World

there's  a map of the world on a wall in your room
      Em                   Bm
green pins where you wanna go
      G
white pins where you`ve been, there isn't even ten 
          D
and you're already feeling old

       Bm
Pretty faces stare back from a magazine stack
         Em                         Bm 
that you read when you're feeling bored
                G
look through a telescope  lens, it doesn't make sense
    D
you think you've been there before 


CHORUS:

     G                                      D
some far off feeling, some upclose kind of ache
     G                                F#m 
a widescreen reason to, look the other way



there's a place by the lake that you go when it's late
it's summer and the crowds are gone
then you sit all alone, with your thoughts getting stoned
just waiting for some peace so come

like a thing that you tried, that you thought that you liked
for a minute then it all felt wrong
so you're changing again, all your clothes all your friends
it's the same as it ever was


some far off feeling, some upclose kind of ache
some widescreen reason to, look the other way

Bm         G   Bm     G  F#m
ayyyyyyyyyyaya ooooo ooo ooo
Bm         G     A       
ayyyyyyyyyyaya ladum, ladum

Its a road that you've paved over indian graves
and you wonder why your dreams are crazed
so you cling to your wife, your kids and your life
theres nothing that you're gunna save

put the razor to your face, hot water for a shave
kill the shadow of yesterday
clean shirt, clean pants, clean slate, second chance
you're going by another name

some far off feeling, some upclose kind of ache
that instant comma, it always come too late

ayyyyyyyyyyaya oooooooooo
ayyyyyyyyyyaya ladum, ladum

mohammed rolling dice with christ at twilight
and they hear their master's voice.. they run to do their chores
at master's calling.
their job tonite: re-write the bible
for a whole new generation of non-believers.

the pastor screams out to the crowd:
"there's evil that must be put down!"
and it touches the soldier boy.. he heeds his master's voice
his life is calling.
sweet soldier boy.. the speaker is bleeding
he hears his master's voice.. do you hear your master's voice?
CALLING.. like the lady siren's call.

sweet soldier quiet- just staring at the ceiling
and he hears his master's voice.. he hears the call to war
the siren's singing.
out on the line- there's something that strikes his side
and he sees his inner child.. he hears his mother's voice
softly calling.
spirit soldiers mother hovers.. she holds up a paper cup
and the sound of life and love fills her ear.

you're only gonna hear what you want to hear..
do you hear your master's voice now?

mohammed and christ speak twice as nice
but the one that i like best- he sings inside my chest
i hear my master's voice now
calling out.. calling out.. calling out.. calling out..
