"Flood"
By: Jars of Clay
Album: Jars of Clay

Capo 3rd fret, or tune up 1 and 1/2 steps.
There are two parts to this song, the 4 chord riff (such as the intro),
and the 3 chord riff.  Listen to the song to get the gist of which goes where,
and how to strum.  (I like to strum a couple of times really fast, then let
it ring, then change chords).

Riff 1:
A F G B (Barre'd)

Riff 2:
Am G Em (Not Barre'd)

I'm 99.9% sure about riff 2, but not riff 1.  It sounds about right.
You could play the barred chords regularly, but for speed, I stick with them.

Chords: (As if played without capo, so translate numbers up by 3)

These chords have generic names which will be ok for my purposes. 
This song is played with a capo on the 3rd fret. All the chords and Violin
solo are played relative to the capo. Listen to the CD for the ryhthm.  

INTRO: E5 (2 beats)   C5 (2 b.)    D5 (2 b.)     B5 (2 b.)       
            Play twice. Let all Strings ring.

VERSES: E5 (2 B)   D5 (2 B)   C5 (4 B)
             Play 4 times while muting the 1st and 2nd strings.  
             "Rain rain on my....."

PRE-CHORUS: Play 4 times. Same as VERSES. Let all strings ring.
              "But if I can't swim...."

               "....When i'm falling..."

There are more parts to the violin harmony that i haven't figured out. Sounds
good anyway.This is MY attempt at this song. It sounds pretty good to me and
pretty close to the album too. Enjoy!

I hope this doesn't get garbled on your computer. i wrote this with my page
filling the screen.It might get goofed if your screen is a small window.
