Tear Stained Eye – Son Volt

Capo 2 [all chords and notes relative to Capo 2]

Chords used:
D:      xx0232
G:      320033
A:      x02220
Em:     022000

[Be like Jay - throw in sus2's and sus4's for the D and A chords throughout]

Intro: Finger a D chord and pick the open D string before following through and strumming the D, then 
remove and hammer your index finger twice - second fret on the G string. After the second hammer on, hold 
and continue to strum the D chord, something like:

e|----2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--|
B|----3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|
G|----2-2-2-2-2-2-0h2-0h2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--|
D|-0------0---0-0-0-0-----0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

In the first line of the song, play the 3-note little baseline over the words “…getting to know…”: 
Between the transition from the D chord to the G chord, pick the open low E string, then hit the 
1st fret (/e) and the 3rd fret (/f) of the same string (low E), then into the G chord over “…know 
the concrete…”:

Verse 1:

D                          /e     /f   G
Walking down Main Street, getting to know the concrete
                A                  D
Looking for a purpose from a neon sign
D                                      G
I would meet you anywhere the western sun meets the air
                A                    D
We'll hit the road never looking behind

D                               Em
Can you deny there's nothing greater
         G                           D
Nothing more than the traveling hands of time?
D                                  Em
Sainte Genevieve can hold back the water
                  A                        D
But saints don't bother with a tear stained eye

Banjo solo: D G A D (same chord progression as Verse 1)

Verse 2:

D                     G
Seeing traces of the scars that came before
              A                         D
Hitting the pavement, still asking for more
D                                          G
When the hours don't move along, worn-out wood and familiar songs
               A                                    D
To hear your voice is not enough, it's more than a shame

D                               Em
Can you deny there's nothing greater
         G                           D
Nothing more than the traveling hands of time?
D                                   Em
Sainte Genevieve can hold back the water                              
                  A                        D
But saints don't bother with a tear stained eye

Pedal Steel Guitar Solo: D G A D [x2] (same chord progression as verses)
     
Verse 3:    
       
D                        G
Like the man said, rode hard and put away wet
                A                      D
Throw away the bad news and put it to rest
D                               G
If learning is living and the truth is a state of mind
                  A                  D
You'll find it's better at the end of the line

D                             Em
Can you deny there's nothing greater
          G                          D
Nothing more than the traveling hands of time?
D                                  Em
Sainte Genevieve can hold back the water
                  A                        D
But saints don't bother with a tear stained eye

D G A D (final progression - same as verses - without lyrics)

D                                   Em
Sainte Genevieve can hold back the water
                   A                         D
But saints don't bother with a tear stained eye
