Sound of Lies
by the Jayhawks
from the album "Sound of Lies"

Transcribed and submitted by Nick Sonderup
(zzsonderupn@winthrop.edu)


This is a great acoustic song for a great "new" Jayhawks.  If they can
keep putting together albums like this one I don't think they will have
any problems, that's not to say that I didn't like Marc Olson in the
band, but the new sound is incredible.

This song is pretty easy, but there is one kind of tricky part when it
comes to the C-F-C-G combo.  This part will be diagramed like this C h F
C G C.  What I mean by this is that it sounds like there is a little bit
of hammering on going on during the C-F-C-G progression.  It is more or
less when the C goes to F and then back to C. After a few times you
should be able to hear it.  Sorry if the slashes confuse you, they make
it easier for me to time it out.


Intro


Dm	Am	G	G riff

Dm	Am	F		C h F C   Am  F    Em    C h F C G  C
\\\\ \\\\ \\\\ \\\\ \\  \\ \\ \\\ \\\\ \\\\  \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\\\

    Am   G

Dm	   Am		 F
Town, the stands, the tall brick walls
		C		Am   	Am pull off
Isn't love a dream, time plays in between


Chorus

    F		     Em

against the truth

Verse #2

When I was young, outspoken
G		   F     C
Mama said it'd work out right
	C		  G				(the F in this part is )
When the 60s brought a moody star			(for the most part just)
G		   F	 C				(quick hammer on, then )
Mama said it'd work out right				(back to the C, except )
F		     C					(the last part         )
Mama said it's work out right

F			C

Verse #3

		Dm
It's a matter of time
    Am    G
Till I, fall in the middle of the
Dm	   Am		 F
Town, the stands, the tall brick walls
		C		Am   	Am pull off
Isn't love a dream, time plays in between


Chorus

    F			Em
The sound lies rings funny
Em7		C h F C G C F C
against the truth


>>Instrumental break (follows same pattern as rest of song)


Verse #4

		Dm
It's a matter of time
    Am    G
Till I, fall in the middle of the
Dm	   Am		 F
Town, the stands, the tall brick walls


		C		Am   	Am pull off
Isn't love a dream, time plays in between


Chorus

    F			Em
The sound lies rings funny

Em7		C h F C G C
against the truth

That's about it. I am pretty confident with most of it, but I know there
are a few grey areas so any suggestions would be great.

Sounds great as is & I'm not a great player but I also like the sound of this:
C G
When I was young, outspoken
G7 C
Mama said it'll work out right
C G
Then sixteen brought a moody star
G7 C
Mama said it'll work out right
F Am
Mama said it'll work out right
F Am C
Boulevards and green leaves billowing
F C
Hmmmm Hm Hmmmmm
G G7 G6 G6*
Hm Hmm Hmmmm Hmmmmmmmmmm

& for last line:
G=320003
G7=320001
G6=320000
G6*=320030
