Jason Isbell - Songs That She Sang in the Shower
Tabbed by: jakevogel
Double-D tuning – tune both E strings down to D

[I was not a music major and have probably mislabled some of the chords.  I chose
the labels for ease.  Also I’m not sure that he tunes the high “e” string down to
“d” but I like the way it sounds acoustically so that’s what I did.  Hope you
enjoy this great song.] [6/12/16 - The video I used is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3zb8ZpAzRc
On the Dsus he actually uses his pinky to play it 054050.  The last two notes are both E, so he doesn't
tune down the e string.  Mostly that means you don't strum the last e string in severl chords.
I think it's easier this way, and I like the way it sounds as I have written it - but that's not
"gospel"!  Play it however you want and enjoy playing it.  I only hope this helps get you started so
you can add  your variations as you like!  Enjoy!]

Dsus x4


     Dsus        Dsus
On a lark.  On a whim.
               Am7                       Em7                        Dsus
I said there’s two kinds of men in this world and you’re neither of them
        Dsus          Dsus
And his fist, cut the smoke
          Am7                  Em7                  Dsus
I had an eighth of a second to wonder if he got the joke
      Dsus         Dsus
In the car, headed home
            Am7                   Em7                 Dsus
She asked if I had considered the prospect of living alone
       Dsus             Dsus
With a steak, held to my eye
          Am7                  Em7                    Dsus
I had to summon the confidence needed to hear her goodbye
     Am7                     Em7                  Dsus
And another brief chapter without any answers blew by


         D                           G                     D      G
And the songs that she sang in the shower are stuck in my head
                    D    Asus              D
Like Bring Out The Dead.      Breakfast In Bed.
       D                   G                             D     G
And experience robs me of hope that she’ll make it back home
                    D   Asus                  D
So I’m stuck on my own.      I’m stuck on my own.


     Dsus       Dsus
In a room, by myself
               Am7                     Em7                    Dsus
Looks like I’m here with a guy that I judge worse than anyone else
     Dsus        Dsus
So I pace, and I pray
      Am7                     Em7                        Dsus
And I repeat the mantras that might keep me clean for the day


         D                           G                   D      G
And the songs that she sang in the shower all ring in my ear
                    D    Asus                     D
Like Wish You Were Here,     how I wish you were here.
       D                   G                        D     G
And experience robs me of hope that you’ll ever return
                    D    Asus                   D
So I breathe and I burn.      I breathe and I burn.

[Bridge]   D - D/C#
         D/B                          A                     G
And the church bells are ringing for those who are easy to please
        D/B                         A                         G    Asus
And the frost on the ground prob’ly envies the frost on the trees


         D                      G                     D      G
And the songs she sang in the shower are stuck in my mind
                  D    Asus                     D
Like Yesterday’s Wine,       like Yesterday’s Wine
         D                    G                     D      G
And experience tells me that I’ll never hear them again
                  D    Asus                     D
Not thinking of then.         Not thinking of then.


G  Asus  D

Thanks for figuring out the tuning and chords. I'm not a music major either but you did a great job! I love this song but I found a couple of minor errors in the lyrics after seeing them on Jason Isbell's website. At first listening I also assumed "stake" was the word being used but it turns out to be "steak" which gives the completely different meaning to the first verse. Wow! " "Mantras", "envies" and "Thinking of then" are a few more minor corrections, again based what I found. I hate to even bring it up but since I'm working up the song for an upcoming gig I thought I'd use the corrections and also post them for others to see. Here is one place to find the lyrics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSAJU1hJ9gw

And again, great job figuring this one out!

Nice job on the chord voicings... and I do believe the high E is tuned down to D on the recording.

BTW, the absolute best place to find the lyrics to the songs on "Southeastern" is on the lyric sheet included with the cd! 8-)
