Counting Crows

*** Capo on 1 ***

The previous version was close, but some of the chords sounded weird and he 
missed a couple of key spots. I think I've figure them out, and tranposed
this into a set of chords that work really nice -- many pair above, below
each other on same frets and make intuitive slides in the progression. These
chords appear to have F basses often, example B/F anc C/F. Well, this is 
much easier with capo as A/E and B/E (just leave top E open).

(Updated: I corrected the intro and outro, which are not the same as the
verse chords as suggested. I also realized the timing was off, and that is
now reflected correctly.)

Great song, one of my CC favorites. Take it nice and mellow.

Chords: (Capo on 1 brings chords to key of F)
E   - 022100
A   - x02220 (often A/E, 002220)
F#m - 244222
B   - x24442
C#m - x46654
G#m - 466444

> = slide up
< = slide down
~ = ring (and/or rake)

Intro:
1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . |1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . |
E       A       |B*      A (E)(A)| (*B/E, 024442)

E       A       |B*      A (E)(A)| (*E/B, x22100, but B is fine)
/  ///  /  ///   /  ///  /   / /

(note: second line's B is closer to an E. But, it is most important to hit
the B note, in E/B or B, so I list it as a B)

Okay, let's get into it...

Intro: (really piano, play chords faintly)
E    A    |B    A(E)(A)|
E    A    |B    A(E)(A)|
(repeat)

Verse 1 & 2:
E                  A           |F#m           A   (E)(A) |  
If I could make it rain      to-day,
E                  A           |F#m           B          |
And wash away this sunny day    down  to  the gutter,  I 
E                  A           |F#m           A   (E)(A) |
would, justa getta change   of  pace.
E                  A           |F#m           B          |
Things are getting worse, but I feel  a  lot  better, and
A                     B          |E                      |
that's all that really matters to me.

E           A      F#m     A (E)(A)
Amy hit the at-mo-sphere
E                A           F#m         B
Caught herself a rocket ride out of this gutter. And,
E                  A       F#m      A (E)(A)
she's never coming back, I fear.
E           A              F#m         B
Any time it rains she just feels a lot better, and
A                     B         
that's all that really matters to 
E
me.     (We've waited...)

Chorus:
C#m                     |G#m                     |
Sooooooooo-ooo-ooo-ooo   long,              for
A           E           |B                       |
someone  to take us back home.    It just takes...
G#m                     |C#m                     |
Sooooooooo-ooo-o-o-ooo   long!
A             E         |A           E           |
Meanwhile the days  are  driftin'  a-way    and
A           E           |C#m                     |
some of us  sink like a  stoooooooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-
B                       |A            B          |
-ne!                     Waiting for  mothers to
E* (start intro)                      
come.

E*   A    |B    A(E)(A)|
E    A    |B    A(E)(A)|

Verse 3:
E                 A           F#m      A (E)(A)
There has to be a change, I'm sure.
E                A          F#m   B  
Today was just a day fading into another. And,
E                  A         F#m     A (E)(A)
that can't be what a life is for
E                  A            F#m         B
The only thing she said was she feels a lot better. And,
A                     B      
that's all that really matters to
E
me.    'Cuz we've waited... 

C#m        G#m
Soooooooo  long,     for
A          E            B
someone to take us back home.  It just takes...
G#m        C#m
Soooooooo  long
A             E         A         E
Meanwhile the day’s are driftin' away  and
A          E               C#m       
some of us sink like we're stoooooooo-
B          A           B
-one!      Waiting for mothers to
E* (start outro)
come.

E             A             (slow down)
 I wanna know, I wanna know

All  I  really know is 
E       A
I don't wanna 
E (single strum)
know
