                             EASY PLATEAU - Ryan Adams & The Cardinals
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ryne Smith
Email: johnnyhollywood@hotmail.com

Tuning:  Standard

Intro:

(Some of these hammer-ons and slides are quick, and I'm not 100% sure, so listen to 
to make sure)

The acoustic starts off:

E|---------0------|
B|-----2/3-3h5----|
G|----------------|      x2
D|----------------|
A|----------------|
E|----------------|

E|---------0---------0------------|
B|-----2/3-3h5------3h5/8--7------|
G|--------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|

Then the electric kicks in:

E|---------0---------0---------------------------------|
B|-----2/3-3h5------3h5-8--7---8p7--5-3--3p2-----------|
G|----------------------------------------------2------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

E|---------0---------0------------------------------------|
B|-----2s3-3h5------3h5-8--7---8p7--5-3--3p2--------------|
G|----------------------------------------------2--0------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|

Verse:

A               Em              A             Em
Let's take a ride to the easy plateau
                 A              Em                                   G
Where the cold don't come and the wind don't blow
A              Em                  A               Em
Moonlight flickers on the water below
A                         Em                                         G
The orange grove blossoms in the orange grove

(Pre-CHORUS  and CHORUS)

D                                         G (hit twice)
Bad nights lead to better days
D                                                  (pause in guitar)
It doesn't matter but I think about is anyways
A              G            D                                      A    G    D
I want an easy plateau, Some place to rest my head
A              G            D                                      A    G    D
I want an easy plateau, Some place to rest my head
A
For awhile, for awhile, for awhile, for a little while

(repeat intro)

(Verse 2 - same chord progression)

sleepyhead, come on lets take a ride
to the easy plateau in the back of your mind
up through the alley take the door under the stairs
my head ain't feeling nothing but cats and rocking chairs

(Pre-chorus and chorus)

Bad nights lead to better days
It never happens but I think about it anyways
I want an easy plateau, Some place to rest my head
I want an easy plateau, Some place to rest my head
For awhile, for awhile, for awhile, for a little while

(Bridge)

D     Dsus4   D       Dsus4  D  (x2)

D                            Dsus4   D
How do I hold on to you,
D                          Dsus4   D
if I can't hold on to me
Bm                          Dsus4  D
How do I hold on to you
Bm                            Dsus4  D
I want an easy plateau
Bm                                    D
Some place to rest my head

For a little while

(verse chords are then played w/solo that starts with intro riff)

I want an easy plateau, some place to rest my head
I want an easy plateau, some place to rest my head
Easy plateau

(Corrections/additions welcome!  Especially if someone wants to tab out the solo!)

Nice job. Great song. Hard to get it to sound right with just one guitar. Anyone got suggestions ?
