==============================================================
= "Don't Dream It's Over" by Sixpence None The Richer (2003),= 
= Originally done by Crowded House (1986).                   =
= Tabbed by Medalion (medalionemissary@hotmail.com)          =
==============================================================

Standard Tuning (E A D G B e)

One guitar -- the first guitar will play the open chords.
  
Another guitar -- the second guitar will be playing the chords as barres 
upstroked once then muted softly, but only playing the first 4 strings so 
(D G B e) strings.  Play on a clean electric with reverb, mute the chord 
slightly after play, so don't let it ring too much.  Play the barre chord
fragments alongside the open chords.  Listen to the song to see what I mean.

i.e. 
F1 for 2nd guitar

e 8
B 8
G 10  <- just upstroke these parts, the E and A string are muted.
D 10
....
A 8
E 8

------------
Chord Legend (in EADGBe style)
------------
F1 (8 8 10 10 8 8)
C  (x 3  2  0 1 0)
Am (x 0  2  2 1 0)
F  (1 3  3  2 1 1)
Dm (x 0  0  2 3 1)
Bb (1 1  3  3 3 1)

------------------
Soloing Tab Legend
------------------
s = quick slide from one note to another making a smooth transition
h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
~ = vibrato, vibrate note
b = bend note to fret number after the b, i.e. 5b7 means bend 5th fret note 
    to sound like the 7th fret note.
t = tap note
/ = slide up to note after the / slowly
\ = slide down to note after the \ slowly
scrape = use your guitar pick to scrape along the fat E string

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Intro
-----
F1 (this played by the 2nd guitar repeated several times) **

** I can hear an acoustic mimicking the bassline as a subtle riff like this:
e----------------------
B----------------------
G----------------------
D----------------------
A----------------------
E-1~--1-1---1-1---1-1--

After 4 repetitions, you hear this fill very softly:

e-8--------------------
B-8--------------------
G----------------------
D----------------------
A----------------------
E----------------------

Then play the intro sequence again, but this time after the 4 repetitions use this fill:

e-6---8----------------
B-8---8----------------
G----------------------
D----------------------
A----------------------
E----------------------

Verse 1
-------
F                      Dm
There is freedom within
                        
There is freedom without
Bb                                 Am     
Try to catch the deluge in a paper-cup
F                     Dm
There's a battle ahead
                  
Many battles are lost
Bb                                                 Am 
But you never see the end of the road while you're travellin' with me

Chorus
------
Bb      C
Hey now hey now
      F          Dm
Don't Dream It's Over
Bb      C
Hey now hey now
         F           Dm
When the world comes in
Bb        C
They come they come
           F            Dm
To build a wall between us
Bb         
We know they won't win

Verse 2
-------
Now I'm towing my car
There's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing their suspicions but there's no proof
In the paper today
Tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

Chorus
------------
Hey now hey now
Don't Dream It's Over
Hey now hey now
When the world comes in
They come they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Verse 3
-------
Now I'm walking again
To the beat of the drum
and I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows appear
barely clearing the roof
get to know the feeling liberation and release

Chorus
------
Hey now hey now
Don't Dream It's Over
Hey now hey now
When the world comes in
They come they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Outro (Repeat riff as often till fade out)
-----
  Bb                 C       F                Dm
