Tabbed by: Jason Hechler

Remember to maximize the window!

This is a remarkably easy song of off Sister Hazel's fantastic second album,
Fortress. I know for a fact that the basic chords are right, but they may have 
some variations here and there of the regular chord. Listen to the song to get 
the strumming and change pattern, especially between the F and C in the verses. 
This is my first tab, so if you find a problem, either post a fix or email me at

Chords Used:

G	32xx33
Am	xx221x
F	133211
C	x32x1x
D	xxx232
Em	x22xxx

There is alot of solo work and riffs going on throughout the entire song.
Being a singer and not an fantastic guitarist, I can't figure them out,
and if I could, I wouldn't be able to play them and sing at the same time.
I'm sure they're not hard for someone who can play lead.

Intro: G Am F C G

Verse 1:

G
It's bitter -
Am
It tastes alot like winter.
    F      C       G
And will it, release me?
G
So heavy -
Am
How much more to bring down the levy
    F       C          G
And kill me? Don't kill me.

Chorus:

G         D          Em
I've been stayin' high.
              C             G           D  Em  C
And I've been feeling sorry for myself.
G             D            Em
And I've been ressurecting my,
   C            G               D  Em  C
My fortress to protect myself.

Verse 2:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/sister_hazel/fortress_crd.html ]
G
Shattered -
Am
Tired, beaten, worn down and tattered and
F      C      G
Can you even hear me?
G
What do you expect out of me?
          Am
I'm being buried alive and screaming,
          F   C               G
Can't you see - oh, can't you see me?

Chorus:

G         D          Em
I've been stayin' high.
              C             G           D  Em  C
And I've been feeling sorry for myself.
G             D            Em
And I've been ressurecting my,
   C            G               D  Em  C
My fortress to protect myself.


Verse 3:

G
Weary -
Am
My hands slapped I'm cautious and leary
   F      C             G
of tryin' - oh but I'm tryin'
G
How am I to figure it out?
    Am
All along I've been kicking around
            F     C         G
Without my home, yeah - I'm so lost, so lost.

Chorus:

G         D          Em
I've been stayin' high.
              C             G           D  Em  C
And I've been feeling sorry for myself.
G             D            Em
And I've been ressurecting my,
   C            G               D  Em  C
My fortress to protect myself.

G         D          Em
I've been stayin' high.
              C             G           D  Em  C
And I've been feeling sorry for myself.
G             D            Em
And I've been ressurecting my,
   C            G               D  Em  C
My fortress to protect myself.

G     D
Na na na na na na
Em    C              G
Na na na na na na na na
G     D
Na na na na na na
Em    C              G
Na na na na na na na na...


Naturally you're playing this song for a big crowd of people. Get them to
sing some "na na na's" for ya. Great song. Even better band.

I hope you enjoy this tab. I know that it's hard to find the lesser known
Sister Hazel tabs around. If I feel motivated I might get the rest of the
CD done that isn't posted yet.

Adios!
