The following are what I beliee are the chords for Phish's "Sample In a Jar."

A :002220  C:03201   G:320033  D:000323   E:022100
A2:007650  C2:005555   G2:355433    D2:057777     E2:079999

I'm going to write the chords out as open play it however you like.  I
personally like to start out with the "A2" and go from there, changing from
open to barre chord where appropriate.

[Intro]
|A  C   G   D:|

A                  C                  G                     D
It's hidden far away, though someday I may tell

A                          C               G                     D
The tale of mental tangle when into your world I fell

A                         C                       G            D
Without you now I wander, soaking, secretly afraid

A                              C                               G
                         D
But in your grasp the fears don't last, though some of them have stayed

A             D                       E         D                       A
I wheeled around because I didn't hear what you had said

A                 D                  E       D                    A
And saw you dancing with Elihu, up on Leemor's bed

A               D                    E           D                       A
And I was foggy, rather groggy, you helped me to my car

A                      D             E                       | A      C
      G     D:|
The binding belt enclosing me, a sample in a jar

A                                      C                            G
                   D
And on the market stands unfolding, with all the willies and thier wares

A             C                                   G                      D
I shuffle by alert but numb to all the glances and the glares

A                 C                           G                     D
I think of you unheeding all the times I raised my cup

A                              C                   G                     D
It's now I know that you knew that I'd soon end up end up

A              D                     E           D                       A
I wheeled around because I didn't hear what you had said

A                   D               E        D                    A
And saw you dancing with Elihu up on Leemor's bed

A                D               E          D                          A
And I was foggy rather groggy, you helped me to my car

A       D              E                    D               |A   C    G   D:|

The binding belt enclosing me, a sample in a jar

A                                 C                 G           D
You tricked me like the others, and now I don't belong

A                                 C                           D
The simple smiles and good times seem all wrong

A             D                        E      D                         A
I wheeled around because I didn't hear what you had said

A                  D                   E        D                   A
And saw you dancing wioth Elihu, up on Leemor's bed

A             D                  E            D                          A
And I was foggy, rather groogy, you helped me to my car

A        D            E                      D               A C  G  D
The binding belt enclosing me, a sample in a jar

                   A   C   G   D
Sample in a jar

                     A  C  G   D
A sample in a jar

                   A   C   G  D
Sample in a jar


The bridge may be off from the recording, but I play it and sing just lke
it's written and it sounds great.  Enjoy!

     Hello Phish folks,
     I posted "Sample In A Jar" here a while ago, but wanted to make you
aware of a mis-transcription.  The opening and verse is A, C, G, D, (That
part is right) but the second measure is incorrect.  It's supposed to be A,
E, Em, D.  So the inro and verse is: A, C, G, D, A, E, Em, D     That's it
for now!

No Worries!
Bill Schofield (and Caroline)
