Blaze On (Phish)
Written by Trey Anastasio/Tom Marshall

Ok so this is my first tab ever after years of taking tabs.  Thought I would give back a little.
I pulled this from when Trey spoke/played at the New Yorker Festival in Oct 2015.  Sounds like he 
is in a different key than some of the other live versions Phish had played during the summer. I think I
got it pretty close.  Enjoy!

Verse 1
C                
Climb that hill,Stay on your feet
G                         C
Scramble for your footing when it gets to steep
C
You're on the highway now, With higher hopes
       G                               C
While all around are rolling eggs with living yokes
           F                      C
You never get too sad, you never get too blue
   G                                  C
It must be all the chemtrails raining down on you
             F                            C
The justice of the peace, can't help you anymore
G                                     C 
and they just took the covers off the justice of war

Chorus
C
you got your nice shades on
C
and the worst days are gone
           G
so now the band plays on
               C
you've got one life, blaze on (twice)


short solo
F, C, G, C


Verse 2
C
the storm is passing through, lay down your sticks and stones
              G                        C
the struggles over now, we're all just flesh and bones
        C
we were wrong before, it was wrong to trust
     G                       C
the shadows cast, we're only light and dust
              F                       C
and then one day you'll find, to your intense delight
     G                          C
that 3 wrong turns, can really make a right
           F                       C
so why not be like me, be proud of all your crimes
           G                        C
cause when i screw up once, i do it 2 more times


Chorus
C
you got your nice shades on
C
and the worst days are gone
           G
so now the band plays on
               C
you've got one life, blaze on (twice)


Verse 3
              F                                        C
and we'll be dancing in the fields, running through the moor
G                        C
trippin on the barbwire, buried near the shore
F                       C
blazing like a comet, thats brighter than a full moon
       G
so you better get ready, cause a change is coming soon
        F                C
i met a liar, called the messiah
          G                    C
i got the frying pan, i wanted fire
            F              C
i saw a red dress, i met a daughter
          G
i got the quicksand, i prayed for water


Chorus
C
you got your nice shades on
C
and the worst days are gone
           G
so now the band plays on
               C
you've got one life, blaze on (twice)

Good stuff! Phish sometimes plays it a half step up. So the root chord is C#, and the other chords are G#, F#, and B.
