Well, here's my shot at this great tune.  I play it tuned down
1/2 step (mostly because that's how my guitar's usually tuned),
but since it's all barres, you could play it in regular tuning.
(It would be easier in open E tuning, and I'd be willing to bet
that the Crowes play it that way to get the slides down right)


Progression #1: B - A# - G#

Progression #2: G# - A# - A#,  A# - C - C,  D# - C - C# - A# - C - G#
- G#

        NOTE:   Don't play the A# and B chords as E-barres - they
        ====    sound right. Play all of these as A-barres, except the

Rich in open G tuning

A#	     C/A      G		
No more time left for shame
A#	C/A		   G
Horizon behind me, no more pain
A#	 C/A		G
Windswpt stars blink and smile
A#	C/A	      G
Another song, another mile
A#	C/A		G		
You read the line every time
A#	    C/A		G
Ask me about crime in my mind
A#	  C/A		G
Ask me why another road song
A#	 C/A			G
Funny but I bet you never left home

G -> A	       A -> B
On a good day, it's not every day
D->B   C->A	B->G
We can part the sea
G->A                  A->B
    And on a bad day,   it's not every day
D->B   C->A    B->G
glory behind our reach

14 seconds until sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days
