"Tear Stained Eye" by Son Volt, from "Trace" CD
from juddy@aol.com

capo 3rd fret

chords are same in verses and chorus
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/son_volt/tear_stained_eye_crd_ver_2.html ]
D                                                       G
Walkin down Main Street, gettin' to know the concrete
                      A                             D
Lookin for a purpose from a neon sign.
D                                                          G
I would meet you anywhere western sun meets the air
                    A                              D
I'll hit the road, never lookin' behind.

chorus:

Can you deny, there's nothin' greater
nothin' more than travelin' hands of time
St. Genevieve can hold back the water,
but saints don't bother with a tear stained eye.

(banjo solo)

Seein' traces of the scars that came before
written in the pavement, still akin' for more
when the hours don't move along, worn-out wood and familiar songs
To hear your voice is not enough, is more than a shame.

(chorus)

(solo)

Like a man said, rode hard and put away wet
throw away the bad news and put it to rest
If learnin is livin', and the truth is a state of mind
you'll find it's better at the end of the line.

(chorus)
