^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
-(Riff 1, 3 times)

F                      G         C                      F
Swinging on the lifeline  \  Fraying bits of twine

F                       G                      C                  F
Entangled in the remnants of the  \  Knot I left behind

-(Fill 1):                              Dm
     e---------------------------(0)----1----|

Dm                      G                       C              F
And asking you to help me make it  \  Finally unwind

-(Fill 1)

-(Riff 2):

-Chorus:

C                   Bb        F     Bb      G       C
But God never listens...            to what I say

C             Bb       F    Bb       G       Am
God never listens              to what I say

Am    Bb         Am   Bb       C
So     very...    So     very    hard

C                           G            F
And you don't get a refund           if you overpray.

-(on "pray", repeat Riff 1 twice)

F                            G           C
F
And when the line is breaking \ And when I'm near the end

F                                 G                        C
F
When all the time spent leading \ I've been following instead

-(Fill 1)

Dm                                      G                     C
      F
When all my thoughts and memories \ are left hanging by a thread

-(Fill 1)

-(Riff 2)

-(Chorus)

-Solo:

C                       Bb                       F
Fm
Stranded on this slender string, the minutes seem to last a lifetime

C                       Bb                  F                       Fm
               (C)
Dangling here between the light above and blue below that drag me down

-(2nd solo): fingerpick these chords while sometimes adding a D on the
                 second string (3rd fret) - listen to recording:

             C \ Fmaj7 \ C \ Fmaj7 \ C \ G \ Fmaj7 \
                            Am7(1/2 meas.) \ G(1/2 meas.)

-(Chorus twice)
-(Riff 1: repeat many times under "God never listens")
-Ending(slowed down):

e-----------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------|
G------5-----5----------------------------|      then strum a C chord.
D-----------------------------------------|
A---8-----7--------5(hold)----------------|
E-------------------3(hold)---------------|
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I'd like to take this space to grovel for phish tapes instead
of doing it on the 'net. I'll gladly pay money or trade other
bands' tapes, but I have no phish to trade. :(
