Tuning - DGDGBbd

Played on slide guitar

Ok so this amazing song is really just based around 3 parts.  Listen to the song to 
figure out what goes where and when, and this will tell you how.

The main riff is this:

Riff Part A:

d |--------xx-----------xx----------|
Bb|--------xx-----------xx----------|
G |---/4---xx---4/7\4---xx--4\2/4---|
D |---/4---xx---4/7\4---xx--4\2/4---|
G |---/4---xx---4/7\4---xx--4\2/4---|
D |--------xx-----------xx----------|

Repeat that a few times until Part B comes in at the end of the Part A riff

     PART A         PART B
d |-----------------------7--------7------------------------|
Bb|------------------------7--------7---------8\6-6-6/8-8---|
G |--4/7\4---xx--4\2/4/7------4/7------7/9\4----------------|
D |--4/7\4---xx--4\2/4/7------4/7------7/9\4----------------|
G |--4/7\4---xx--4\2/4/7------4/7------7/9\4----------------|
D |---------------------------------------------------------|

Then repeat Part B again (minus the little slide part
on the Bb string at the very end...)


Chorus:

d |--4/11---11\7---7\4---|
Bb|--4/11---11\7---7\4---|
G |--4/11---11\7---7\4---|
D |--4/11---11\7---7\4---|
G |--4/11---11\7---7\4---|
D |--4/11---11\7---7\4---|


Lyrics:

I surely knew it was a trap ye
Yet my hands they would not listen
I shoulda known your word was flap
Comin' out all sweet an drippin'

O so where could I go - yes but to the Lord
I been to your house an' see what you adore
I left there stiff - stiff as a board
Where could I go but to the Lord
When will I hurt for heaven's sake
When will I suffer for the sake of heaven

All my love well it is madness
Freely given to you folks with gladness
I will not live and die - no not by the sword
I am weak without the joy of the Lord

Taste and see that the Lord is good
Let's bend our knees like we know we should
We can't see clear - our eyes are made of wood
Taste and see boy that the Lord is good
