The Black Crowes
Song Title: Words You Throw Away
TBC Original? Yes
Written By: Chris and Rich Robinson
Recording Session: Souled Out
Record: Other
Live Debut: 11/15/1990
Shows: 15 times played live
Related Song: Remedy
Notes: b-side of the Hotel Illness single. The studio version of this song was recorded
Los Angeles by Rich, Steve and Johnny in the spring of 1991, with Chris overdubbing
at a later date. This song evolved into Remedy: "Opening later for ZZ Top the Crowes
off with a new tune, "Words That You Throw Away," that generally went on for 14 minutes.
we only had 45 minutes opening for ZZ Top," laughs Rich. "We'd barely get in five songs.
we thought that was so cool - keep it fresh." Their daring paid off in the end.
was eventually boiled down into a little number called Remedy, which became the seed for 
new album." [from the article "#1 Without a Net" by Vic Garbarini]

Rich does a lot of little variations to the main riff throughout this song that

I'm not going to bother tabbing out.  On the last time through, hold the open G

chord out instead of hammering on to the C/G, which leads directly into the

chorus...

First Chorus:

This entire phrase is repeated three times.  After the third repeat, play the

following:
