D/B: Barre the A,D, & G strings with your Index @ 2nd fret. Ring @ B string, 3rd fret.
Middle @ E string, 2nd fret.

Follow a similar picking pattern for the verses, but simpler. This is, in my mind, one of
the greatest acoustic songs ever. There are bass runs on the D throughout the song similar
to those tabbed above. Enjoy. Chris.

Verse 1.
            D                                   G             D
They were hiding behind hay bales, they were planting in the full moon
            D/C#       D/B         D/A     G     A
They had given all they had for something new
          D                                   G                  D
But the light of day was on them, they could see the thrashers coming
             D/C#          D/B   D/A      G    A   G
And the water shone like diamonds in the dew.
                  A                 D                 G
And I was just getting up, hit the road before it?s light
                    A           D  Dmaj7 (alternating)
Tryin? to catch an hour on the sun.
        G                    A                  D        D/C#      D/B     D/A
When I saw those thrashers rollin? by, looking more than two lanes wide
        G            Em7            A
I was feelin like my day had just begun

those words!
