                             Locust Street - The Black Crowes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Michael Chabot (amorican489)
Email: michael.chabot@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard (E-A-D-G-B-E)

I noticed there was only one other tab for this song, and it excluded the simple little 
played in the intro and during the verses. So here it is.
The song has a slow country feel to it. I finger-pick this song; I find it's more 
This is a very easy song off the new album, "Warpaint", but it's going to go down as a classic.

Rich plays a steel-string acoustic guitar
Luther is playing a mandolin, as well as an electric during the solo

Intro Riff (Played ONLY at the start of the song and after the solo)
* Hold the 3rd fret bass note (G) throughout the riff
Riff A
e|------------------------------------------|--0-----------------------------|
B|--0-1-0---0---1-0---0---1-0---0---1-0-----|--0-----------------------------|
G|--0-----2---0-----2---0-----2---0-----2-0-|--0-----------------------------|
D|--0---------------------------------------|--2-----------------------------|

                                                Verse begins

*Tip for the verses: When you play the G after the Em, you play the intro riff, but half 
intro's length. Like this:

   Dry bread.....on the table

Em               G
Dry bread on the table
Em                     G
Burn the mill salt the paper

D
And its easy pick-ins on Locust Street
C                   G
There's no place to hide
D
And you can't find love on Locust Street
C                            G
But you can hear the sunrise crying
C                          G
Can't you hear the sunrise crying
C              G          Em
A song for you alone

I play this little riff before going to riff after first chorus (it's the same one you 
during the verse). Let the notes with * next to it ring:
Riff B
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------0-1-0---0---1-0-------------------------------------------------|
G|---0*---0*-0-----2---0-----2-0---------------------------------------------|
D|-----------0---------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-0*---2*--3*---------3*----------------------------------------------------|

Em                G
Sad eyes, weeping willow
Em                           G
Black cat blues, blacked out window

D
And its easy pick-ins on Locust Street
C                   G
There's no place to hide
D
And you can't find love on Locust Street
C                            G
But you can hear the sunrise crying
C                          G
Can't you hear the sunrise crying
C              G        Em
A song for you alone

Am                     F
Just a glimpse of what love could be
C                   G
Once a dream that I owned
Am                  F
What of many lonely longing souls
C                G
At least I'm not alone

*Guitar Solo - Luther plays a nice melodic solo in the key of A, mess around with it. 
played during the solo are:
Am - F - C - G - Am - F - C - C - end on Em

*Before going to the next verse, play Intro (Riff A)

Em                        G
Ripe off the vine now lay rotten
Em                             G
Like a dead end street forever forgotten

D
And its easy pick-ins on Locust Street
C                   G
There's no place to hide
D
And you can't find love on Locust Street
C                            G
But you can hear the sunrise crying
C                          G
Can't you hear the sunrise crying
C              G
A song for you alone


Enjoy!

Excellent, thanks. A few errors in the riffs, but it's easy to figure out from what you've done. Five star.

Agreed. I had no trouble picking this up and playing it.
