5th fret
Cross-Eyed Bear - by Damien Rice

Capo on 5th fret

Chords:
G          355340
D*        554030
C/G       332010
C/B       020010
Am7      002010 

Like most of Damo's stuff, there are a lot of hammer-ons in the song on the
G string for G chords and on the D string for C and D chords.  Also, here's
the gist of how he plays the lead, relative to the capo obviously:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----4-5-7-7-----7/9-7-5-7-----7/9-7-5-4-2-0--------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|


Verse 1:
                        G    D     C/G
I broke your doll,             
                                       G      D       C/G
It was cross eyed, that's all,
                            G   D    C/G 
I only wanted it to help it see straight,
       C/B   Am7           
But like a half broken moon,
D
Sooner than soon,
Am7
I was up on your wall,
D
Smaller than small,
Am7
In a half painted frame,
D
The wood wouldn't stain,
Am7
And I hope that reminds you, 
D                                                     G    D     C/G 
Of the part you couldn't change in me,
                                

Chorus:
                               G     D     C/G
If you push me I'll fall,
                                   G     D    C/G
If you pull me I'll drown,
                                                 G    D    C/G
If you're gonna be nailin' me down,

  C/B    Am7       D
I won't rise again


Verse 2:

I scratched your car,
Where the bird left a stain,
But I only wanted to help you see straight,
But like a half broken moon,
Sooner than soon,
I was up on your wall,
Smaller than small,
In a half painted frame, 
Where the wood wouldn't stain,
And I hope that reminds you, 
Of the part you couldn't change in me,


Chorus:

If you push me I'll fall,
If you pull me I'll drown,
If you're gonna be nailin' me down,
I won't rise again
I won't rise again


Outro:
G     D     C/G
I'm not God, I'm not God,
I love you but I'm not God...

thanks for pointing that out! i tabbed this based on a live version he played, so that's why i've got it in a different key.
