BLACKRAIN – Jack Savoretti
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kengus

>>A lot of picking in this one, I think I got most of it. As the song
progresses, the pattern becomes more and more elaborate, so try to
listen how he does it. You can, of course, strum your heart out as
well... Try it out.<< 

Capo on second fret!
Standard tuning

INTRO
   Em                C     D  Em                C     Dsus2

VERSE1 (pick as in intro)
Em                         C     D
   A dirty rain is falling at my feet
Em                            C      Dsus2
   And people walk pretending not to see
Em                           C    D
   And I don't know why everybody wants what they don't need
Em                         C     Dsus2

VERSE2 (picking pattern slightly elaborated)
   Em                C     D           Em                 C     Dsus2
e|-------------0--------------0h2p0----------------0---------------0---|

E|-0-----------------------------------0-------------------------------|

     Em                 C         D
It's everybody's world, one man's grave
    Em                              C       Dsus2
And heaven only knows what's hidden up this late
      Em                                 C        D 
Using diamonds, clubs, and spades, he'll win your heart
    Em                          C                Dsus2
And build a house of cards, and build a house of cards

CHORUS
   D       Em     C                  
e|-2h3p2-------------------------|   -------------|

E|---------0---------------------|   -------------|

        D   Em   C
'Til we all fall down
       D   Em   C
And we all fall down
         D   Em   C
Watch us all fall down
           Em...
Like black rain

(...Em...C/G...Dadd4add9) x2

VERSE3 (more or less strummed, same chords as other verses)
The building's getting tall; watch it scrape the sky
Can't see the stars at all through the city lights
When the fuel runs low, who cares if we're getting high?
It's not the things you know, but the things that you deny

CHORUS
             D   Em   C
That make us all fall down
       D   Em   C
And we all fall down
         D   Em   C
Watch us all fall down
           Em   C  Bm
Like black rain
           Em   C  Bm
Like black rain

VERSE4 (picking again, same as verse 1)
A dirty rain is falling at my feet
And people walk pretending not to see
And I don't know why everybody wants what they don't need

CHORUS
Well we all fall down
'Til we all fall down
Watch the oil fall down
Like black rain
           Em   C   Bm (repeat until end)
Like black rain

(It's not always gonna rain)
(It's not always gonna rain)
(It's not always gonna rain)
(Black rain)

Hey, nice tab! Just noticed a flaw in the lyrics in the second verse where it says "hidden up this late". It's supposed to be "hidden up his sleeve", it's a poker referance ;)
