Subject: Son Volt, "Windfall"

"Windfall," by Son Volt, from "Trace" CD
capo 2nd fret

opening riff G, C,  4-0, 4-2, 4-0, 5-3, 5-0, 6-3, repeat

G                                                       D
Now and then, it keeps you runnin', never seems to die.
Bm                                               C
Trail spent with fear and not enough livin' on the outside.
G                                                 D
Never seem to get far enough, stayin' in between the lines,
Bm                                                         C      G
Hold on to what you can, waitin for the end, not knowin when,
[ Tab from: ]
May the wind take your troubles away
may the wind take your troubles away
          C                                G
Both feet on the floor, two hands on the wheel
D                                                  G
May the wind take your troubles away.

(solo with chorus chord progression)

D                                                     C              G
Try and make it far enough, to the next time zone
Few and far between past the midnight hour,
C                      G                                  Em
you never feel alone, you're really not alone.

(solo over chorus chords)

G                             D
Switch it over AM, searchin' for a truer sound
Bm                                                        C
can't recall the call letters, steel guitar and settle down
G                                            D
catchin' an all night station, somewhere in Louisiana
Bm                                    C      G                    C
Sounds like 1963 but for now,     sounds like heaven.

chorus plus repeat of first line, solo over remaining chorus chords,
then G-D-C-G-D-G and out.
