About this tab version
I use much more vibrant and echoey chord voicings. I based my tab off of the acapella performance by Cantus and it shows in the chord choice. Just play it and feel the difference. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is my version of Gravedigger by Dave Matthews Band. I based it more on Cantus' version of Gravedigger.
Because they are an acapella choir, the chord voicing's are a bit more flavoury and full. I highly suggest
you listen to their performance before playing the song like this, because it will help but also because it's
a great performance.

Cyrus Jones eighteen-ten to nineteen-thirteen
                                G6              Am
Made his great grandchildren believe you could live to a hundred and three
A hundred and three is forever when you're just a little kid
   Fmaj7#11              G6      Am
So          Cyrus Jones lived forever

Gravedigger, when you dig my grave

Muriel Stonewall nineteen-O-three to nineteen fifty-four

She lost both of her babies in the second great war
Now you should never have to watch your only children lowered in the ground
       Fmaj7#11                     G6       Am
I mean          never have to bury your own babies

Dm               F   C  G  Bbmaj7
Ring around the rosey,                       
Dm               F  C  G  Bbmaj7
Pocket full of posey

      We all fall down

Little Mikey Carson, sixty-seven to seventy-five. He rode his
                       G6      Am
Bike like the devil until the day he died
When he grows up he wants to be Mr. Vertigo on the flying trapeze
Fmaj7#11                    G6       Am
         Nineteen-forty to nineteen ninety-two
