NEW ORLEANS IS SINKING 
By The Tragically Hip

This is pretty crude, but is sounds good
additions/corrections welcome.  Previous post of the
lick is included at the bottom.  There are no CRD versions 
of this song on the archive that I could find.  -Rick  
(use bar chords for C, D, E)

Am                     C       Am          C
Bourbon Blues, on the street, loose and complete
       Am      C             Am     C
Under skies of smokey blue -green
   D
I cant forsake a dixie dead shake
       Am         C         Am    C
So we danced the sidewalk clean
   E                            D
My memory is muddy, what?s this river that I?m in?
    E         
Hey New Orleans is sinkin, man
    D
And I dont want to swim


Back to Em/G shuffle for second verse 

Play an ?A? for the yelp (AHHHHHH-HAAA)


From ?Pale as a lightbulb...to I swear to GOD she said? do the Em/G shuffle

then repeat the ?A? for the AHHHHHH-HAAA yelp

then Am/C/Am/C, then

    E                           D
My memory is muddy, what?s this river that I?m in?
     E         
Hey New Orleans is sinkin, man
    D
And I dont want to swim

Back to Em/G to close



This is what is on the archive, from : dave@skatter.usask.ca (Dave Hornidge)


I'm not really sure if this is correct, but this is how I play it: 
The main riff looks like:

E|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|----------------------------|
D|--------2-----------0--0h2--|
A|-----------2-----2----------|
E|--0--0--------3-------------|

I think the bass plays something similiar to this as well.

The other catchy little riff looks something like:

E|----------0-----------------------------------0--------------------------|
B|--3p0--0-----3p0----------------------3p0--0-----3p0---------------------|
G|------------------4p0--3p0--2p0-----------------------4p0--3p0--2p0------|
D|---------------------------------2p0---------------------------------2---|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|


E|----------0--------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--3p0--0-----3p0---------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------4p0--3p0--2p0--4p0--3p0--2p0--2s4--4--4--4--4----------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

This riff changes alot in the song and I only tabbed one of these variations.
Note also that this riff is played much more quickly than the main riff.
The best way to figure out how it is to be played is to listen to the
disk.  I play the main riff a few times and then throw in the other one
every now  and then.  Sorry I don't know the solo.
I didn't have time to write out the lyrics.  Corrections and comments are
welcome.


Good Luck!
