                               Here's To The Halcyon

Band: Old 97's
Album: Blame It On Gravity
Tuning: Standard
Tabbed: L. Umbarger, JAN09 (lumbarge@yahoo.com)
Notes: Solo rhythm is probably off a bit, I'm hopelessly caucasian

Verse1:
E------------------------------------------------------------
Get me through this Lord and I’ll do anything you say

B-------------------------------A--------------------E-------
Live right, read the good book, I’ll settle down and pray

E------------------------------------------------------------
When Gabriel blows his horn I know things might not go my way

B-------------------A------------------------------E---------
Get me through this Lord and I’ll do anything you say

Verse2:
Pluck me from this driftwood Lord I’ll be a better man
Raise me from the deep sea in the palm of your great hand
Let me see tomorrow (the moral?) and I’ll try to understand
How the sinking of my little vessel fits into your plan

Chorus1:
A----------------------E--------------------------------
Here’s to the Halcyon, forever may she rest

B--------------------A------------------------------E---
At the bottom of the ocean, for the good Lord knows best

A-------------------------------E-----------------------
You made her from lumber and you gave her to the sea

B-------------A------------------------------E----------
Now good Lord what do you propose to do with me?

E|-------------------------------|-0-0-0-0-4-----------2---4-2-0-|

Verse3:
Get me through this Lord and I’ll devote my life to you
Things look pretty bleak right now but I know you’ll come through
I’ve squandered my good fortune and my other fortune too
Get me through this Lord and I’ll devote my life to you

Bridge:
---------A-----------------E-------------
I cannot change my past mistakes

-----------B-----------------E-----------
I’ve led a life devoid of virtue

-------A-------------E-------------------
Either way the man I am

------------B----------------A-----------
Is dead and gone although I know the past

A-------------------E--------------------
Can come around and hurt you

Verse4:
Get me through this lord and I will never drink again
Well I’ll pore over my Bible and I’ll pour out all my gin
I’ll prove to you a sinning man can turn his back on sin
Give me some fresh water Lord I’ll never drink again

Chorus2:
Here’s to the Halcyon, forever may she rest
At the bottom of the ocean, for the good Lord knows best
You made her from lumber and you gave her to the sea
Now good Lord what do you propose to do with me?

Chorus3:
Here’s to the Halcyon, forever may she rest
At the bottom of the ocean, for the good Lord knows best
You made her from lumber and you gave her to the sea
Now good Lord what do you propose to do with me?
Good Lord what do you propose to do with me?
