                           TIMBER - Phish
Tabbed by:Patrick Brown
Email: dcdeadhead420@yahoo.com 

Tuning: Standard         -          E   A   D   G   B   E

I haven't seen this posted anywhere accurately.  So I learned it by ear.  This should
be correct.  It is transcribed in A.  It might sometimes be played in B flat.  Here
it is.

mezzo forte


       Am6    Am7                   Am6    Am7


Verse 1:

Am6                 Am7              Am6     Am7
I'm gonna pull this timber `fore the sun go down

C                                 Am6       Am7 
Get it `cross the river `fore the bars come down

Am6        Am7       Am6   Am7
Drag it on down that dusty road

D                    C         A
Come on Jerry, let's dump this load


(A)                           C                        D  C
I said "Timber, ho!", timber, woah this timber's gotta roll

        A                     C                        D  C
I said "Timber, ho!", timber, woah this timber's gotta roll

Verse 2: (alt. chords)

Am6    Am7          Am6      Am7
My old Jerry was an Arkansas mule

D                      C        A
Been everywhere and he ain't no fool

Am6          Am7         Am6    Am7
Weighed nine hundred and twenty-two

D                      C        A
Done everything a poor mule can do


Jerry's shoulders stood six foot tall
Pulled more timber than a freight could haul
Workin' heavy old Jerry got sore
Pulled so much he couldn't pull no more


The boss said "Jerry" and it made him jump
Jerry ran and kicked the boss's rump
My old Jerry was a cool mule
It been me I would kill that fool
Boss tried to shoot old Jerry's head
Jerry took the bullet and stomped him dead
Stomped the boss til he heard him scream
Sure don't care he was so damn mean

(chorus 2x)
