Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
These are the two main chords that make up the song
(actually, the main riff)

e|--2--2--2-------2-------|
B|--3--3--3-------3-------|
G|--2--2--2-------0-------|
D|--0-----0-------0-------|
A|--------0---0---x-------|
E|----------------3-------|

Strum those in rhythm, and it should sound right.
Those are the chords for all of the verse parts.
For the bridge, just apreggiate them.

The verse is just a repetition on those chords for 8 bars I think,
heres the chorus

G          A               Em               G              D
I'm almost drowning in her sea, shes nearly crawlin on her knees

For the last chorus, its

G          A               Em                A              Em
I'm almost drowning in her sea, she's nearly crawlin on her knees,

            G            D
It's almost everything I need


Essentailly for everything not Tabbed out, play the main riff.
Good luck!
John




Sullivan Street   by Counting Crows 
                  from August and Everything After
                  Words:  Adam Duritz
                  Music:  Adam Duritz & David Bryson


This is a very simple song to play involving a few easy chords with
alternating bass strings played.  The effectiveness comes from the haunting,
soulful vocals.  

D/G  =  D chord with A G bass (300032)


[Intro]  

D   D/G   D   D/G   D   D/G  D   D/G


[Verse]

D                      D/G                D                D/G   
  Took the way home    that leads back to Sullivan Street
D                      D/G                  D        D/G 
  Across the water     and home through the town
D                      D/G                 D           D/G
  Past the shadows     that fall down wherever we meet
D                      D/G                 D    D/G
  Pretty soon now,     I won't come around      //// (strong strum)


[Chorus]

                  A               Em
      I'm almost drowning in her sea
                    G             D
      She's nearly fallen to her knees
      D            D/G                        D      D/G
      Took the way home .....(Ba, Ba, Baaaa)


[Verse]

D                      D/G                D                D/G
  Took the way home    that leads back to Sullivan Street
D                      D/G              D           D/G
  Where all the bodies   hang on the air
D                      D/G                   D     D/G
  If she remembers   she hides it whenever we meet
D                      D/G           D       D/G
  Either way now      I don't really care
                           
'Cause I'm gone from there  


[Chorus]  
    
                 A                    Em            
      I'm almost drowning in her sea
                      G               D    (arpeggio*)    
      she's nearly crawling on her knees

      D/G     D      D/G
       
      D                 D/G
      She's down on her knees
      D                 D/G
      She's down on her knees

(strum)

D                  D/G                  D             D/G
  Took the way home  that leads back to Sullivan Street 
              D                   D/G           D    D/G
   Where I'm just another rider   burned to the ground
      
Come tumbling down


[Chorus]

                A               Em
     I'm almost drowning in his sea
                      G                Em
     She's near me,  crawling on her knees
                    G             D      D/G    D   D/G
     It's almost  everything I need.


[Outro]

                 D               D/G
I'm down on my knees
                 D               D/G
I'm down on my knees

I'm down on....
                 D    D/G
    down on my knees.
                    D
   I'm down on my knees.


*Arpeggio:

D  pluck 4&1 together, then 1,2,3,1,2,3
D/G  pluck 6&1 together, same pattern

i think it sounds great, based around those chords - i'm only a beginner so i can't get technical (!) but putting more emphasis on the bottoms of the chords, then strumming the shorter rhythms on the higher notes sounds pretty accurate... i found it helps to play along with the song and just adjust as you go along
