Lions Mane Tab

Iron & Wine - Lion's Mane
from "The Creek Drank the Cradle" (2002)
Mapped by: C. MacInnis

This is my first Iron & Wine tab, and I am proud to submit this correct version of the
beautiful opening track from "The Creek Drank the Cradle".

I wish I could say that I was entirely responsible for this tab and how correct it is,
but I am deeply indebted to "aarvid" and the other fine folks over at
http://www.passingafternoon.com who, on top of running a damn fine Iron & Wine fansite,
have a forum of great contributors who originally posted a barebones draft of this tab.
I have added the lyrics and mapped how the riffs fit into the structure of the song. You
should be able to pick up on it rather quickly with a bit of practice.

Support Samuel Beam. See Iron & Wine in concert and purchase his CDs. Truly a gem of a musician.

Enjoy!

Run like a race for family when

[1] and love is a tired symphony
[1] you hum when you're awake
[2] and love is a crying baby mama
[3] warned you not to shake
[4] and love's the best sensation
[5] hiding in the lion's
[1] mane
[1] [1] [1]

[verse progression, instrumental with banjo & guitar solo:]

[1] [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [1] [1] [1] [1] so i'll

[1] clear the road, the gravel and the
[1] thornbush in your path
[2] that burns a scented oil that i'll
[3] drip into your bath
[4] the water's there to warm you
[5] and the earth is warmer when
[1] you laugh
[1]

[1] and love is the scene i render
[1] when you catch me wide awake
[2] and love is the dream you enter
[3] though i shake and shake and shake you
[4] and love's the best endeavor
[5] waiting in the lion's
[1] mane
[1] [1] [1]

[second solo/outro:]
