                             PAINT THE MOON - The Czars
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Slinden
E-mail: thewhyer (at) gmail.com

Tuning:Standard

I've decided to tune this beautiful song, since I can't find it anywhere on the 
internet.  This is
the album version, though the live acoustic (on Youtube) is also amazing.
*Note* I changed the last part of the intro and the last part of the solo because I 
believe the lead
is originally in drop D tuning.  I tabbed it in standard so it's just a taaad different. Still
sounds good, though.  Enjoy!

[Verse]
C
I had a dream last night
  G
A nightmare to be exact
   Dm
We couldn't take the heat
        F
And the sweat dripped from our backs
C                    G
I didn't go I waited for the Midnight sun
  Dm
I didn't want to leave you
         F
'Cause I don't have anyone

[Chorus]
                C
Don't paint the sun anymore
          G             Dm
Paint the moon, and the stars
             F
In an autumn sky
         C
Paint me cool blue waters, with
          G                Dm
Shades of gray, just don't let me
                  F
Live my life this way
    C
Without you

[Solo]
         C         G            Dm             F          C

[Bridge]
Am                F
Let it go, let it go
                          C
Let it fall down from the sky
                       G
And leave this world behind

[Verse]
I saw you suffering, so I knelt
Down by your side, I saw that you
Were fading, that you were leaving
Your own mind
I gave you water just to soothe your
Failing heart and take away the fear
Of what we both know we will find

[Chorus]
Don't paint the sun anymore
Paint the moon, and the stars
In an autumn sky
Paint me cool blue waters, with
Shades of gray, just don't let me
Live my life this way
Without you

Ha, yeah, thanks man. I remember trying to tab it out when I first saw your comment. One day I finally decided to give it a try. Glad you liked it!
