Subject: tom petty's "A HIGHER PLACE"

Hello Everybody!:-)  This is my second Stab at transcibing music, and I think
this one is great. Well, here is another stab at another great tune of Tom's
Petty's "A HIGHER PLACE"

first off, you only have to use 3 chords for the majority of the song. they
are:

E chord                Asus2              Dsus2 

E--0------         E--0------           E-0-------
B--0------         B--0------           B-3-------
G--1------         G--2------           G-2-------
D--2------         D--2------           D-0-------
A--2------         A--0------           A---------
E--0------         E---------           E---------

(that's the fret's you have to hold, you play around with the fingering with
your liking:-)


here is how you would start off the begining on an acoustic guitar.

E         Asus2       Dsus2      Asus2     E     Asus2    Dsus2    

that's the beginning! I don't have the cd on me right now, but if you know
the song, you probably know the rythym!!!!


Here Are the lyrics!
p.s.   there are a few other chords, you probably know them though!

VERSE 1:


  We Gotta get to a higher place and we gotta leave by night.  Before that
river takes us down we gotta find somwhere that's dry
We gotta run like we never run, or we're gonna lose the light.
We Don't get to a higher place and find somebody, can help 
somebody, might be nobody no more
We gotta get to a higher place and i hope we all arrive together.
we gotta get to a higher place if we wanna survive the weather)

VERSE 2:

(Well, i fool myself and i don't know why
 I thought we could ride this out
 I was up all night making up my mind
 But now i got my doubts
 I got my eye on the waterline
 Trying to keep my sense of humor)

VERSE 3:

(I remember walking with her in town,
 Her hair was in the wind
 I gave her my best kiss
 She gave it back again
 When i add up what I've left behind
 I don't want to lose no more)

If you want the chord switches and lead, (which i have!), just E-mail me. If
you really want the leads, you would mail me, and tell me that you appreciate
my work  right? anyway, any requests, (I like Live, (the group:-) Ac/dc and i
guess you could throw in Sringe Toting Pilots. any questions, comments, Death
Threats, questions about computers (Dos or GW-Basic, I am the Man!) just
email me!!

                                       The Infamous

Actually its a pretty good chord version of the song. But you have the incorrect fingering for Dsus2. Once you fix that it works great. Easy to play if you know the trick and it sounds great. Use Dsus2: 000230 instead of what is suggested above.
