CAPO on 6 Fret

This is an AMAZING song from an amazing musician.
You can find his music at: http://www.myspace.com/rightawaygreatcaptain
The song is fairly simple with repeating chord progression
of C G Em with a little riff between the G and Em chord which is:

[Riff 1]
  (G)    (Em)
e|-3--3---0---------|
B|-0--0---0---------|
G|-0--0---0---------|
D|-0--0---2---------|
A|-2--0---2---------|
E|-3--h2--0---------|


| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| H  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note


C                       G         Riff 1  Em
Oh, sweet Anna did you mean to do this to me?
Em
I've been trying hard to be rational

C        G           Riff 1               Em
What a woman, what a woe that you give to me
Em
How long can I count to a thousand?

C          G             Riff 1          Em
I tried drinking but the bottle is still empty
Em
I can only hope for a fresh one

C         G            Riff 1          Em                     
You tried loving but I guess you could not love me
Em
How long can you count to a thousand?

C              G           Riff 1 Em  
I could be the bigger man, bigger man.
Em
Yeah, i could be the bigger man, bigger man.
C                  G           Riff 1 Em
But I just want to kill a man, kill a man.
Em
Really, what's a bigger man?

C                      G             Riff 1  Em
Oh, young sailor do you see what your captain sees?
Em
Love is nothing more than an action

C                     G            Riff 1    Em      
What an ocean, what a world, on the big blue seas
Em
You can change it all if you want to

C                      G           Riff 1  Em
My good leader, what a self loving web you weave
Em
I have got a son and a daughter

C                       G              Riff 1     Em
My young sailor, what a point that you just can't see
Em
Don't you think that they need a father?

C                 G             Riff 1  Em
So, pull yourself together man, smaller man
Em
And do it for a bigger man, bigger man
C                 G        Riff 1         Em
How easy it would be if we could know the plan
Em
But, really whats a plan?

I think there is also some Dsus action in there, after the Em on some lines and in the little end part as well.

Dsus:
|-3-|
|-3-|
|-2-|
|-0-|
|---|
|---|

i agree with greatcaptain...the Em is played for two measures, and during the second, the progression "walks" its way back to the C by playing Em, Dsus, C. but good tab overall!

it may in fact be a regular D chord. i can't quite tell. i personally enjoy the regular D to the Dsus
