Widow of a living man
Ben Harper
from The Will to Live

Full credit to you if you know of and appreciate this awesome musician.

The song is played on an acoustic tuned to D(DACFAd), but I will write the
chords in as they are played, so if you are playing on a guitar
tuned to E, Aminor becomes Gminor and so on.

I think the chord is called Am2 -  x02200

      Am			C	G	D
Mama why does he treat me so cold so cold so cold
Am		   C	  G	D
Why do I feel so old so old so old
     Am			     C	     G	    D
how long has he treated me unkind unkind unkind
     Am			   C	     G	     D
or have I always been so blind so blind so blind

	Am		F		G	Am	G
I'm the widow, I'm the widow, I'm the widow of a living man
	Am   G		Am   G   F   G   Am2 --> see above
of a living man of a living man

For subsequent verses and choruses, repeat the above pattern.

Why can't the times stay the same
now i am begging him to change
what about all the plans we've made
now i am so afraid

I'm the widow of a living man

why does he hurt me so
I'm gonna need somplace to go
he's no longer some kind woman's son
mama i think that I had better run

I'm the widow of a living man

Hi There

Nice tab for a great song. But I think the correct D is a D with an F# in the bass, 2x0323.

Just a small thing, but the Am2 is called an Asus2; the fingering is right, though. Also, the Am in the verse should be that Asus2 instead. It's right in the chorus though, I think.

The tuning should be DBCFBd. Standard, down a whole step. Those A's don't make any sense.
