Grey Street Tab

   
"Grey Street" 

>From the unreleased Dave Matthews Band album Lillywhite Sessions 

Transcribed by Matthew Grizzard (mattgrizz@telpage.net) 

This is a pretty easy but powerful song. Dave is playing a 12 string 
on this one, so it might sound different from the mp3 track. He also 
has his guitar tuned sharp by a hair. His is tuned halfway between an 
E and an F, but oh well. Here's the tab hope you like it. Feed back 
is welcome.

Verse 1: Play the Main Riff here: 

Look at how she listens 
She says nothing of what she thinks 
Just listens to abuses 
And by the kitchen sink... 

She thinks, "Hey! 
Why do I live to this? 
I'm latest on life 
How did it end like this?" 

Chorus 1: 

Bm                               A/C# 
Oh, then the wrongs in her heart fall 
        D/F#                G 
And she feels the weight in lies 
        Bm    A/C# 
And the colors mix together to  

Post Chorus: Play Main Riff here: 

Grey 
Grey Street 

Verse 2: Play Main Riff here: 

Begging now the difference 
She prays to God most everynight 
Although she swears He doesn't listen 
There's hope in her that He just might 

She said, "I Pray!" "I Pray!" "I Pray!" 
"But they fall on deaf ears 
I'm supposed to take it all on myself 
To get out of this place 

Chorus 2: 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/dave_matthews_band/grey_street_tab.html ]
Bm                               A/C# 
But soon the wrongs in her heart fall 
             D/F#           G 
And then she rode the light in 
        Bm                  A/C# 
Oh, the pain now seems it's over 
    D/F#               G 
And again she sees the pain 
             Bm         A/C#         
And then the colors mix together to  

Post Chorus: Play Main Riff Here: 

Grey 
On Grey Street 

Verse 3: Play Main Riff Here: 

It's all colored in again 
Take what you can from your dreams 
Make it real as anything 
Takes the work out of the courage 

She said, "Please!" "Please!" "Please!" 
"There's someone sleeping outside my door 
I live on the corner of Grey Street  
And the end of the world." 

Chorus 3: 
        Bm           A/C# 
And the wrong in her whole plan 
     D/F#                    G 
I as hopeless as the day she came 
        Bm                A/C# 
And the man she calls her father 
D/F#                        G 
Ignores her and ignores her pain 
           Bm              A/C# 
Oh, when I walk out in the morning 
   D/F#     G 
In all this sunlight 
            Bm         A/C# 
And all the colors mix together to  

Post Chorus: Play Main Riff Here: 

Grey 
On Grey Street 
On Grey Street 
It's Grey Street, you go 

Final Chorus: 

       Bm                 A/C# 
So, if you don't see your Heaven 
      D/F#                     G 
Don't convince yourself you're done 
                Bm                     A/C# 
Just 'cause the things around you seem heavy 
        D/F#                      G 
Doesn't mean you can give up this ground 
         Bm                  A/C# 
When you hold me down in the heart now 
              D/F#            G               
Move out and, oh, the wait is over 
          Bm             A/C# 
Oh, might notice of your worry 
    D/F#        G 
One another HEY hey laa. 
        Bm         A/C# 
And the colors mix together to  

Ending: Play Main Riff Until End 

Grey 
On Grey Street 
On Grey Street 
To grey... 
Yeah, yeah...
