"Gone Unsung" (Drink To The Dead) acoustic demo version

Words and music by Clutch

Transcribed by Keith S. Byers


Wow, this sure is an interesting song isn't it? For those of you fortunate enough to
have the demo version of this song, this will be a fun song to play. The chords are
relatively simple in a Gordon Lightfoot kinda way, but the bass line--which I have
tabbed--seems to provide a nice, melodic anchor. Neil Fallon plays the acoustic parts
and Tim Sult the distorted wah parts. Most of the chords are strummed and played in the
first position i.e., the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd frets. I tried to tab as many of the parts as
I could to give you an idea of what you are missing, if you haven't heard it.

Gone Unsung (Drink To the Dead)

If knee-deep in cat nip
At the old icebox
I recommend you whistle
And give the box three knocks

Should you be so lucky
To hear whisperin'
It is an invitation
For you to leap in

Let us go leaping in three measure time
Dressed up as asses and drunk to the nines
Swing from the branches shouting those songs
Gone unsung for far too long

You're surrounded by toadstools
In the old green glen
I'm afraid there is little
That I can recommend

Save all of your courage
And the sun say a prayer (or possibly "And the Son say a prayer")
And where you go a-treadin'
Take the utmost care

Let us go leaping in three measure time
Dressed up as asses and drunk to the nines
Swing from the rafters shouting those songs
Gone unsung for far too long

Let us go leaping in three measure time
Dressed up as asses and drunk to the nines
Swing from the branches shouting those songs
Gone unsung for far too long

Sound of rushing water yon
Nine mens more as in the sand
But the players gone

Drink to the dead all you still alive
We shall join them in good time
Should you go crossing that silvery brook
It's best to leap before you look

Drink to the dead all you still alive
We shall join them in good time
Should you go crossing that silvery brook
It's best to leap before you look

Drink to the dead all you still alive
We shall join them in good time
Should you go crossing that silvery brook...
