Stone Tab

   
Title:   	The Stone (acoustic)
Artist:  	Dave Matthews
Tabbed By:	Tim  (punk_guy155@hotmail.com)

This tab is as Dave played the song on a PBS interview a long time ago.
I'm pretty sure about the accuracy of most of this tab, I pulled the notes
directly from the performance.  The one thing that's kind of shaky is
the chorus, his hand is always behind the mic when he plays it so I made
my best guestimation as to the chord structure.  If you have any questions,
additions, corrections, comments, e-mail me.  I'll update this tab as
I figure more of it out.

I've this creeping			I'm a long way
Suspicion that things are not		From that fool's mistake and
as they seem				now forever pay
Reassure me				No, run
Why do I feel as if I'm in too deep	I will run and I'll be ok
I've been praying
For some way to show them		=========
I'm not what they see			=verse 3=
Yes I have done wrong			=========
But what I did I thought		I need so
needed be done				To stay in your arms,
I swear	(main riff 2X)			see you smile,
Unholy day				hold you close.
If I leave now I might get away		And it weighs on me
This weighs on me			As heavy as stone and
As heavy as stone and as blue as I go	a bone chilling cold.

Dave adds a nice little rendition of "Can't help falling"
to the end of the song, its just added to the last chorus
using the same chords, but not the picking part.

I was just wondering
if you'd come along
oh, tell me you will
out of this
out of this
out of this __________?
let it all fall out
let it all fall out
until you __________?
Wise men say
Only fools fall in love
but I can't help
falling in love with you
right now.

Sometimes Dave mumbles and you really can't tell what he's saying,
if you know what he says in those parts then e-mail me and let me
know so I can update the TAB.  Hope you enjoy the song.
