John Mark McMillan
Chemicals
From "Economy"
Tabbed by thatchadmiller (Twitter)

To play the main riff on the acoustic, use your thumb to play the G so you 
can hammer on the B string. For the F, hammer off the B string.

John Mark plays the Am7 and C by sliding up the G position, but it plays fine
in standard.

Capo 2
Intro 
G - F - Am7 - C


Verse 1
G                         F                   Am7     C      G
A room sometimes is a body with the loneliest view
G                                    F                      
and porch lights grow dim with every onsetting hour 
        Am7           C         G
and the stars seem so finite to you


Chorus 1
Am7                             G            
but love it ain't like the chemicals, babe 
        F         Am7        G
cuz the chemicals don't hang around
Am7                         G               
everybody's drilling for a fountain of youth
        F     Am7       C     G
losing years on the way down
        F     Am7       C     G
losing years on the way down


Verse 2
A melody can be exhausted babe, short of friend and fame
cuz the birds they don't sing in the winter short of spring
and even then they only sing in the day 


Chorus 2
but love it ain't like a melody babe cuz the birds don't hang around
everybody's drilling for a fountain of youth 
but sometimes in these fountains they drown
sometimes in these fountains they drown


Bridge
            C                                              G
But I wanna love you when the blood of my veins don't know how to
                                 C                 Am7   C          G
call out your name, yeah I wanna love you when the birds don't hang around


Solo over verse chords


Chorus 3
but love it ain't like the chemicals, babe 
cuz the chemicals don't hang around
everybody's drilling for a fountain of youth
                                      C     G/B  Bb6  Asus4  G 
but sometimes in these fountains they drown


For the Bb6, play the chord in the intro to "Over the Hills and Far Away".
That may not be what John Mark is playing, but he's just progressing down
from C back to G, and that's a cool sounding chord.
