       Feeling Gravitys Pull
       =====================

       {Okay, here is the opening lick - figure out the rhythm !}
       
       #har denotes harmonics on that fret
       (E) --------------------0--------------------------5har--
       (B) -12-------12------0---0----------7har----------5har--
       (G)----11-10----11-10----------------7har----------5har--
       (D)----------------------------------7har----------5har--
       (A)----------------------------------7har----------------
       (E)-------------------------7-7777-7------7-7777-7-------
       
       {play the riff but start with the stuff on the 7th fret of
        the low E string}
        I fell asleep at just about every paragraph
        Read the scene where gravity is pulling me around
        Peel back the mountains peel back the sky
        Stomp gravity into the floor
        It's a Man Ray kind of sky
        I'll show you what I can do with it
        Time and distance are out of place here
       
       {this next part reminds me a lot of Driver 8 or a slow These Days}
       {The riff is like this:
       (B) ------0------0------0------0----
       (G) ----0------0------0------0------
       (D) --------------------------------
       (A) -----------------------0--------
       (E) -0------2-------3---------------
       
        Step up, step up, step up the sky is opening
                                               {of course, start the riff again}
        With the lightest mind I felt gravity pull
       
        Somewhere near the end it's sad
        You can't do this I said I can
        To shift sway rivers shift, oceans fall and mountains drift
        It's a Man Ray kind of sky
        I'll show you what I can do with it
       
        Step up, step up, step up. The sky is opening.
                                                  C
        With the lightest mind, I felt gravity pull...
       
                      D       C          D
        ...onto my eyelids. Holding my head straight-
         C                              B
        This is the easiest task I've ever had to do...
       
        I fell asleep at just about every paragraph
        Read the scene where gravity is pulling me around
        Shift the swaying river's shift
        Oceans fall and mountains drift
        It's a Man Ray kind of sky
        I'll show you what I can do with it
        Time and distance are out of place here
       
        This is the easiest task I've ever had to do...
       {The end follows these chords:  B  C  B  C  B  C  B C D B}
        Gravity pulls me down
       
       
       
       
       Maps And Legends
       ================
       
       
       {Intro}
       
       Em   D2   Em   (A)  --0-h-2-----
                      (E)  --------3--3-0
       
       Is he to be reached, he's not to be reached
       Is he to be reached, he's not to be reached
       D2       Em      D2       Em
       Call the fool in company
       D2     Em      F#m           A
       On his own where he'd rather be
       D2       Em       D2     Em       D2        Em    F#m          A/Asus4
       Where he ought to be he sees what you can't see, can't you see that
       
       {Same as intro}
       
       Maybe he's caught in the legend
       maybe he's caught in the mood
       Maybe these maps and legends
       Have been misunderstood
       
       Down the way the roads divided
       Name me the places you have seen
       Those who know what I don't know
       Have heard of the yellow red and green
       
       {The break follows these chords}
       
       D  Dm   F   C     D  Dm   F F    D  Dm   F  C
       
       The map that she's made him doesn't seem real
       He just sees whatever he sees
       Point to the legend point to the east
       Point to the yellow red and green
       


       
       Driver 8
       ========


       The opening riff is :

       1|                       |                 |
       2|                       |   0             |
       3|                       |     0 0 0 0 0 0 |
       4|                       | 5    5 5 4 2 0  |
       5|             2 0   2 3 |                 |
       6|  0    0 2 3           |                 |
       
       Finger:    1 2 1     1 2   2    2 2 1 1
       
       I find a slide up to the 5th fret with the second finger, and a fast 
       slide back down from the 4th to the 2nd with the first finger, makes
       the second part more fluid, so I gave my fingering here as well.
       
       This riff is repeated for the intro, and the second half of it
       replaces the D/F# on the second and/or fourth line of some of the the
       verses.
       
       The chorus riff is :
       
       1|                                  |
       2|                                  |
       3|                                  |
       4|   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0  |
       5|  2 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 2 2 0 0 |
       6| 0   2   3   2   0   2   3   3    |
       
       (repeat as needed)
       
       One set of verses that seems to work (I got several) is :
       
            (Intro Riff)
       
            Em         Asus     G     D/F#
            The walls are built up, stone by stone
            The fields divided, one by one
            And the train conductor says, take a break, driver 8
            Driver 8 take a break you've been on this shift too long
       
            D    C         D         C            D
            And the train conductor says, take a break, driver 8
            Driver 8 take a break, we can reach our destination
            (Chorus Riff)
            Still a ways away; but it's still a ways away...
       
            I saw a treehouse on the outskirts of a farm
            The power lines have floaters so the airplanes don't get snagged
            Bells are ringing in the town again
            The children look up, all they hear are sky blue bells ringing
       
            (chorus)
       
            Am                   C
            Way to shield away the heat,
            G              D
            Way to put myself to sleep
            Way to shield away the heat
            A way to put myself, my children to sleep
            
            (Intro riff)
       
            Pilots did this song, in a plane like that one
            She is selling faith on the hotel crusade
            Locomotive 8, southern crescent hear those bells ring again
            This field of wheat is looking thin.
       
            And the train conductor says
            Take a break driver 8, driver 8 take a break
            We've been on this shift too long
            And the train conductor says, take a break, driver 8
            Driver 8 take a break, we can reach our destination
            (Chorus Riff)
            Still a ways away; but it's still a ways away...

       Life And How To Live It
       =======================

       
       The intro slides between 2 chord positions, and you mainly pick
       on the B,G, and D strings :
       
           (C)*********    (D)**********
       E-----3-------- ! -----5-------!
       B-----3-(5)-----! -----5-(7)---!
       G-----5---------! -----7-------!
       D-----5---------! -----7-------!
       A---------------! -------------!
       E---------------! -------------!
       
       Through the rest of the song, it's almost all more C and D chords,
       played in various ways, (mostly) on the top 4 strings.  (There's one
       F chord in there somewhere too.)
       
               (C)-------->(D)                    (C)---------->(D)
       E-----8-------- ! -----10------!      !--8---------!------10-----!

       Wendell Gee
       ===========

       
       C                       Dm
           That's when Wendell Gee
                     G      D           G              C (Bass in lower case)
       Takes a tug upon the string that held a line of trees
       C                       Dm   
           Behind the house he lived in
              G              D  
       He was reared to give respect
           G                  C       F
       But somehwere down the line he chose
                         C    Em      F
       To whistle as the wind blows
                         C    G                 C
       To whistle as the wind blows through the trees
                          Dm
       He had a dream one night...   
       ...and so on until it ends on a very sad C. 
       Noe I sure hope the lower case letters don't confuse you;
       The guitar stays on G while mike is doing this country kind of thing.
       
       That's when Wendell Gee takes a tug
       Upon the string that held the line of trees
       Behind the house he lived in
       He was reared to give respect
       But somewhere down the line he chose
       To whistle as the wind blows
       Whistle as the wind blows through the leaves
       
       He had a dream one night
       That the tree had lost its middle
       So he built a trunk of chicken wire
       To try to hold it up but the wire the wire turned to lizard skin
       And when he climbed it sagged
       There wasn't even time to say
       Goodbye to Wendell Gee
       So whistle as the wind blows
       Whistle as the wind blows through the leaves
       
       If the wind were colors
       And if the air could speak
       Then whistle as the wind blows
       Whistle as the wind blows
