Jars of Clay
Rose Colored Stain Glass Windows
"Front Yard Luge"
Written by Petra, arranged by Jars of Clay 
Tabbed originally by Jonathan Hunter, additions/corrections by
David Schroder

NOTES ABOUT SONG: This is the live version of Rose Colored Stain
Glass Windows that appears on Front Yard Luge. It differs from the
album version primarily in its layering: the electric guitar is much
more prominent live, while the original version (which appeared on
"Never Say Dinosaur") is much more acoustic-natured and even has a
mandolin in the intro. The electric has some pretty heavy distortion
on it, along with some overdrive and a quick wah near the end and the
acoustic has some heavy chorus on it. Also, watch the rhythm in the
acoustic riff-it's slightly different from the original version in
timing and the F in on the d-string comes sooner than expected (listen and
you'll hear it-it's syncopated).

Intro Acoustic riff (used throughout the song):
|-----1--0-1-1-----1--0-1-1-1-1--|
|-----3--3-3-3-----3--3-3-3-3-3--|
|-----2--2-2-2-----2--2-2-2-2-2--|
|-0-0---------3-3----------------|
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
  Dm            Dm/F
*the above is considered one bar of intro riff

The intro comprises of:
2 bars intro acoustic riff
2 bars intro acoustic riff with vocal "na na"s
4 bars intro acoustic riff with vocal "na na"s and electric 
strums on Dm (but not on the Dm/F)

VERSE ONE-acoustic plays chords, electric arpeggios 
Bb      C           Dm
Another sleepy Sunday, safe within the walls
Bb      C           Dm
Outside a dying world in desperation calls
Gm        F                C                Dm
But no one hears the cries, or knows what they're about
Gm          Bb            F         C
The doors are locked within, or is it from without?

For the verses, the electric plays mostly arpeggios with a few
straight 
strums. Here's a pretty close tab of what the electric plays:

CHORUS-electric guitar drops
Dm            Am            F7        C
Looking through rose-colored stain glass windows
Dm      Am      F7          C
Never allowing the world to come in
Dm      Am      F7       C
Seeing no evil and feeling no pain
Dm        Am            F7      C       Dm
Making the light as it comes from within so dim

 Dm Dm/F Dm Dm/F  Dm          Dm/F

VERSE TWO
Bb         C                Dm
Out on your doorstep lay the masses in decay
Bb         C               Dm
Ignore them long enough, maybe they'll go away
Gm              F               C           Dm
When think you have so much, you have so much to lose

You think you have no lack, when you're really destitute
