GALILEO (Emily Saliers)
-----------------------

[Amy plays this in E, capoed up 1 to F.  Emily plays it in C with a
 capo on the fifth fret and her guitar tuned to DADGBC.  I'm going to
 write down Emily's chords, because they're easier and more interesting.
 If you want to play Amy's chords, you can figure them out; since it's
 in E, there are a lot of barre chords.]
[Actually, when I play this, I usually just play Emily's chords, but
 in standard tuning so I don't put my high E in danger of breaking when
 I tune back up.  If you play in standard tuning, play the verse as
 C G F G7-G6; it's pretty easy to play the G7 - G6 part, as long as
 you play G as 320003 with your pinky on the high E string.  Just play
 Em(C)/B as Em, and play D13 as D or D11 (554030).]


[Each chord is half a measure, except "G7 - G6" is half a measure _total_.]

G    Dsus    C6(9)    D7 - D6      G    Dsus    C6(9)    D7 - D6
[intro]

G      Dsus           C6(9)        D7 - D6
   Galileo's head was on the block
G                Dsus             C6(9)  D7 - D6
   The crime was looking up the truth
G              Dsus              C6(9)         D7 - D6
   And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
         Em         Em(C)/B   C6(9)   Dsus
I try to trace them to my youth

And then you had to bring up reincarnation
Over a couple of beers the other night
And now I'm serving time for mistakes
Made by another in another lifetime

    G            Dsus          C6(9)       Dsus
How long till my soul gets it right?   Can any human
 G          Dsus               C6(9)     Dsus
being ever reach that kind of light?  I call on the
Em       Em(C)/B   A13    A13
resting soul  of  Galileo
         C6(9)       Dsus      G      Dsus   C6(9)   Dsus
King of night vision, king of insight

Then I think about my fear of motion
Which I never could explain
Some other fool across the ocean years ago
Must have crashed his little airplane

How long till my soul gets it right?
Can any human being ever reach that kind of light?
I call on the resting soul of Galileo
         C6(9)       Dsus      G      G
King of night vision, king of insight

Em          Em       C/E            C/E
   I'm not making a joke, you know me
        C#dim/E  C#dim/E   C/E      C/E
I take every - thing  so  seriously
      Em            Em            C/E          C/E
If we wait for the time till all souls get it right
        Dsus                  C6(9)      Dsus      C6(9)
Then at least I know there'll be no nuclear annihilation
      G        Dsus            C6(9)   Dsus
in my lifetime; I'm still not right

G    Dsus    C6(9)    D7 - D6      G    Dsus    C6(9)    D7 - D6
[guitar solo]
G    Dsus    C6(9)    D7 - D6      Em    Em(C)/B    A13    A13
[guitar solo]
C6(9)   Dsus      G   Dsus   C6(9)   Dsus      G   Dsus   C6(9)   Dsus
[guitar solo]

I offer thanks to those before me
That's all I've got to say
'Cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
Now I have to pay

But then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
To let the next life off the hook
She'll say, "look what I had to overcome from my last life
I think I'll write a book"

How long till my soul gets it right?
Can any human being ever reach the highest light?
Except for the resting soul... (God rest his soul)
         C6(9)       Dsus      G      Dsus   C6(9)   Dsus
King of night vision, king of insight

     G            Dsus         C6(9)   Dsus
How long till my soul gets it right...
     G          Dsus               C6(9)   Dsus
How long till I meet that highest light...
     G   Dsus   C6(9)   Dsus   G.
How long?


CHORDS (tuning is DADGBC):

G: x32010    Dsus: 5x0030    C6(9): 3x0010    D7: 5x0035    D6: 5x0034
Em: x02210   Em(C)/B: x22000*   A13: 009900   C/E: x03210   C#dim/E: x04210

*this should probably be called Cmaj7/B, but in the context, it sounds more
 like E minor, so I'm calling it "E minor with an added C (and B bass)."
