Heavy Things
by Trey Anastasio and Tom Marshall
Intro: Just a C to a G (320010).  Listen to the song for the rhythm.

Chorus:
C                  G    
Things are falling down on me
C               G            C G   Am7  G
Heavy things i could not see
C              G 
When i finally came around
C                     G          C G Am7 G      
Something small would pin me down
     F                   G
So I try, to step inside.
                                   C G
I move to where they hoped id be.

Verse:
F                       C  
Vanessa calls me on the phone
F                   C  
Reminding me im not alone
F                        C    
i fuss and quake and cavitate
                           G
i try and speak by turn to stone


Here's the fill that trey does when he does the F -> C part and then ends on 
the G.  When he hits the G, he does this fill over the G

E----3---5---6---7---
B--------------------
G--4--/5--/6--/7-----
D--------------------
A--------------------
E--------------------
Same Chords for the rest of the versi and chorusi

Telly reaches in my vest
to do the thing that she does best
she probes and tears my ventricles
steals my one remaining breath.

CH:

Stumbling as we fall from grace
she needs my vision to replace
her ailing sight throughout the night
leaving two holes in my face

mary was a friend i'd say
'till one summer day
she borrowed everything i own
and simply ran away.

CH:

Jam:

I was stumped by the timing of that fill over the G chord... after listening a few times I'm pretty sure it actually begins on the G note (3rd fret on high e) on the '1' beat. The A note is on the '2' beat, Bb note on the '3' and B on the '4' beat. The filler notes between (played on the G string) are played on the 'and-a' rhythm in between, a little off beat. Listen carefully to the fill and it makes sense!
