Drown – Son Volt

The original is played with two electric guitars; this is my single guitar version which sounds great on 
acoustic!

Chords used:

G:      320033
F:      xx3211  
C:      x32010
Em:     022000
Cmaj9:  x20010
Am:     x02210

2 single notes (over the “...livin’ right is easy...” part), both on the A string, in the 3rd fret: /c 
and 2nd fret: /b

[Intro]:

e|--3-----------------3----------------3----------------1-1-0-0-3-|
B|--3-----------------3----------------3----------------1-1-1-1-3-|
G|--0--b3--b3---------0--b3--b3--------0--b3--b3--------2-2-0-0-0-|

A|--2-------------3---2-------------2--2------------3---x-x-3-3-2-|
E|--3----------1------3----------------3---------1------x-x-x-x-3-|

[The final chord of the intro is the G chord of the first line of the song just before “...sky cracks...”]:

G             F C G                     G    C  G       
  Sky cracks open    the walls fallin’ thru the floor
                 F   C         F      C      G
Just as well to keep it   a guessing game in store
G                 D           Em                    C           
  You're with me now will be again other points in between
          G               F C G                    G   G   C
And the cruel cruel mornings      turn to days of swim or sink
           /c      /b    Am                            G       F  C    
If livin' right is easy what goes wrong?        you're causin' it     to drown
Cmaj9          Am                                      G       F  C
Didn't want to turn that way                    you're causin' it     to drown
Cmaj9          Am                                      G       F  C     
Doesn't make a difference now                   you're causin' it     to drown
 Am                  C
Silence knows can't drown a heart

Silence knows can't drown a heart
