The Black Crowes
Song Title: Ballad In Urgency
TBC Original? Yes
Written By: C.R & R.R.
Recording Session: Amorica
Record: Amorica
Live Debut: 08/22/1994
Shows: 238 times played live
Related Song: Low Down
Notes: A markedly different version of this song was recorded during the Tall sessions.
The song was called Low Down and had different verses but shared the same "hate and
greed, swollen and sweet" The song's working title was "Ballad Of Urgency" during the 
Amorica Sessions.

--------------------------------------
The above information was taken from www.crowesbase.com

Tuning: EADGBE (Standard)

Intro/Pre-Chorus:
E-------------------|
B----0-------0---2--|
G------4-------0-0--| x2
D--5-----5-4-----2--|
A----------------0--|
E-------------------|

This is tough to hear on both studio and live recordings.  On the studio song there is
Ford's part and a sitar played over it and during live shows this is once again mixed
with Marc's part, things up, but after numerous listens to the song on the album and 
live, this is what I could come up with Rich's part.

Pre-Verse 1:
E-----7-0-------------------|
B-----------7------7-5------|
G-------------6----------6--| x4
D---------7------7-----7----|
A--0------------------------|
E---------------------------|

This is only played before the first verse.

Verse:
E-----7-0-------------------|
B-----------7------7-5------|
G-------------6----------6--| x2
D---------7------7-----7----|

D--7----7-7----7-7-7-7-7-7-7--|
A--5----5-5----5-5-5-5-5-5-5--|
E-----------------------------|

The timing and number of times the repeated Dm is played here varies from verse to verse.

here with me and this price you pay
just a wishful dream could be blown away
ask yourself for better or worse
because what's the use if it's just good luck
a black cat has crossed my path
tell me what's the good luck about that

Chorus:
hate and greed
swollen and sweet
let's start this misery
if that's where you wanna be
fear and love
from down or from up above
come to me
come to me
I beg you please
come and set me free

excuese me please for my definition
but deeper still are my convictions
urgently I will to hear an answer
while I misconduct a sad lost anthem
an anthem like you have never heard
have you heard something so absurd

Chorus.
(peace and love).

That's the sitar part on the album, played live by Marc Ford. My tab is for Rich Robinson's part.
