Morning Theft ~Jeff Buckley
tabbed by Jake Sibel

this is just a transcription of the chords to the song, it's not note for note. you'll
need to listen to the cd to get the feel of it, and figure out some of the fills, but
this is a beautiful song, and this should at least get you stated playing it. it should
be pretty accurate, but Jeff uses some obscure chords in his music. 

  F5   F4  Fm5   G#  G#4  A#  Dm5  Cm5  Bb5  C7/E  Am  Em  Fdim

F5         F4
Time takes care of the wound
F5             Fm5
So I can believe
F5          F4
You had so much to give
F5                     Fm5
You thought I couldn't see
F5             F4
Gifts for boot heels to crush
F5               Fm5
Promises deceived
G#       A#
I had to send it away
To bring us back again

F5             F4
Your eyes and body brighten
F5             Fm5
Silent waters, deep
F5             F4
Your precious daughter in the
F5           Fm5
Other room, asleep
F5            F4
A kiss "Goodnight" from every
F5              Fm5
Stranger that I meet
G#        A#
I had to send it away
To bring us back again
G#      G#4
Morning theft
G#      G#4
Unpretender left

True self is what
Brought you here, to me
A place where we can
Accept this love
Friendship battered down by
Useless history
Em                Am F5
Unexamined failure

F5                     F4
But what am I still to you
F5                        F4
Some thief who stole from you?
Dm5           Cm5
Or, some fool drama queen
Bb5                    Cm5
Whose chances were few?
F5                      F4
That brings us to who we need
F5                      F4
A place where we can save
Dm5           Cm5
A heart that beats as
Bb5                    Cm5
Both siphon and reservoir
F5                      F4
You're a woman, I'm a calf
F5                      F4
You're a window, I'm a knife
Dm5           Cm5
We come together
Bb5                          Cm5
Making chance in the starlight
     F5               F4  
Meet me tomorrow night
F5                 F4
Or any day you want
Dm5           Cm5
I have no right to wonder
Bb5               Cm5
Just how, or when
         F5                 F4
You know the meaning fits
           F5                 F4
There's no relief in this
Dm5           Cm5    Bb5
I miss my beautiful friend
G#5       A#5
I have to send it away
Fm5                       G# G#4 G# G#4  F5
To bring her back again
