Hi Steve,

  I love that song too.  I'll try to roughly TAB/TALK you through it.

The opening riff is off the opening E minor chord and goes roughly like




G------------------------------            repeat for intro




So... The intro is a held out E minor.

Emin       C               G        B                      Emin

Seven more days, she'll be coming.  I'll be waiting at the station

Amin                                B

For her to arrive.  Seven more days all I got to do is survive.

and the other change is

[ Tab from: ]
Amin                           Amin

There's kissing in the valley, thieving in the alley

B                          Emin

Fighting every inch of the way.

Amin                         Amin

Trying to be tender with somebody I remember

     B                                                      Emin

In a night that's allways brighter than the day.      Seven Days.

Hope this helps.  All off the top of my head and I haven't played this

one in a couple of years.

   BTW, how's your open tuning playing going?  Check out my sig for a

good riff.

Here are some chords, the way Wood does it is similiar but not the

same. (anyone have any ideas?)

sevan days 

EM             C                        G

sevan days , sevan long days she'll be comin'

           B7           EM

I'll be waitin' at the station


for her to arrive

B7                                      EM

sevan long days, all I gotta do is survive   

She been gone, ever since I been a child, 

ever since I seen her smile

I've never forgotten her eyes

She had a face that outshined the sun and the sky

I've been good, i've been good while i've  been waitin' 

forgive for hesitating, 

but i've been hangin on

sevan more days and all that will be gone

there's kissin' in the alley, theiving in the alley

fightin' every inch of the way

trying to get a lead on, providing the feat on

the nights are always sadder than the days

sevan days , sevan days the wind is knowin'

the whistle will be blowin'

and I know she'll be coming for

my beautifull comrade from the north.

repeat last first.
