                          SPINNING IN THE DAFFODILS - Them Crooked Vultures
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Email: barrymiles@hotmail.com

Tuning: All standard except for the lap steel guitar, it's in open E (EBEG#Be), near the end

Note: the lead guitar that follows the vocal line in the verses is too 
rhythmically random to tab too clean.
The notes are there, the measures are too, but you'll have to listen to the song 
to get a better idea of them.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. John Paul Jones (piano intro)

The guitar in the beginning sounds extremely distorted and reverbed, and hitting 
rhythms in three's.

  Once, out in the rain,      I was able to strangle my shadow then unshackle the chains  (Chain)
  What, what will you do?     It is safe to play god in the garden and king of the zoo?   (You)
  Holes, they need to be filled, Positions availible, yet some are quite hard to get out
of or in (In)

Verse 2:
Cold,        alone and alive,   you're afraid but that's not what I asked, wanna go for a ride?
Sharpen your teeth my darlings,    sharpen your minds,
      Take a finger, if the hand feeds you shit, take one scalp at a time

The slide outro is still a work in progress, but the last little bit goes like this:

Em     G           Am                  E
I'm so high that I just may never come down
