Atlas – The Wood Brothers
http://www.thewoodbrothers.com/
(It’s a tired old saying, but you have to listen to the record to catch the
rhythm, you’ll thank me)
Intro
G G G G C C

Verse 1
E
Hallelujah! 
Well I just woke up from a dream 
            A
So far away 
                     D
And it's no accident I landed here 
Eyes wide open and seein' clear 
                                          G G G G C C
I have come a long long way 

I am wiser now 
My man Atlas told me 
I shouldn't try to hold his world up 
He said, "Boy you got some muscle 
That you have never used 
All you got to do is go ahead and wake up" 

Chorus
G       G       G                     C
Don't you try to hold my world up 
Don't you try to hold my world 
Don't you try to hold my world up 
Don't you try to hold my world 

Slide Part in E 
(I don’t play a good slide, so I just play an E chord on fret 13 for effect)
Intro
Slide Part in E
Intro


Verse 2
Aphrodite 
Well her suitcase was my burden 
For so long 
She said, "Boy you got some heart and soul 
But that's not what your love is for 
Lay your burden down and we'll both be stronger" 

Don't you try to hold my world up 
Don't you try to hold my world 
Don't you try to hold my world up 
Don't you try to hold my world 

Slide Part in E 
Intro
Slide Part in E
Intro

I am stronger now 
My man Atlas told me 
I shouldn't try to hold his world up 
Said, "Boy you got some muscle 
That you have never used 
All you got to do is go ahead and wake up" 

Don't you try to hold my world up 
Don't you try to hold my world 
Don't you try to hold my world up 
Don't you try to hold my world 
Don't you try to hold my world up 
Don't you try to hold my world 
Don't you try to hold my world up 
Don't you try to hold my world

This is a fabulous song. Obviously with the slide it's totally different, but what I did was really slow it down since I can't play slide and it just didn't sound right playing it fast. I play it acoustically on my own and make it a very slow song. It's a big change, but it still sounds really cool and allowed me to make the song my own in a tiny way.

I think it sounds a little better with E7 instead of E, A7 instead of A, and D7 instead of D...and then G7 in the verses (just regular G in the chorus I think)
