String of Pearls
Soul Asylum
Let Your Dim Light Shine

This is a funky cyclical kinda song, that's also pretty simple to play.
Strum with a 1 1-2-3-1 rhythm (listen to the cd and you'll get it easy).
I like to play the first "E" in the series in open voicing, and the
second as a barre chord, for variety's sake.  This is my first posting,
so bear with me.  Comments/hoots of laughter to Chad (pimentec@sas.upenn.edu)

Verses

    A
She swings a string of pearls on the corner
    E
The streetlight reflects the light in the water
    D
The string it snaps and the pearls go sailing
    E
And they splash and they bounce and roll cross the wet street
    A
As she bends to chase the pearls a car swings round the corner
    E
She darts from the eyes of the panic struck driver
    D
Who's racing to the delivery room
    E
Cause in the backseat his wife is busting out of her womb

Interlude

        A         D
g----2-2-2-4---7-7-7-6--

(On this set, switch to the second "E" at the end of the 3rd line)

And the sack breaks and out pops the siamese twins
Who grow up to become the first Presidents
With two heads--are better than one


He puts his heads in his hands says I gotta put my heads together
I can become the best President ever
And not just President fend for yourself

Interlude ADAD (w/wah effect over the chords-maintain during the verse)

He signs his name takes the blame for all of the names
With no shame they adjourn and they leave
And in walks a man with a
Broom and a knife and blood on his hands

And he sweeps everything under the rug
And goes home to his wife and gives her a hug
But his wife was not there she had just left a letter
That said you'd be much better off without me

Interlude ADAD w/riff

And his wife took the train to her ex-lover's funeral
Who died in the bathroom hit his hhead on a urinal
When they got together the knowledge was carnal
And the widow was at the funeral and they had quite a catfight

And they fell into the hole, where the casket was resting
And the preacher just left in the middle of the service
Cause death he could handle, but women made him nervous
And he ran to the car and he drove round the corner

Interlude ADAD w/riff

Then something in the street caught the light in his eyes
He pulled over and pulled a pearl from the gutter
He didn't know what to think
So he took it home and washed it in the sink

And he gave it to Sister Mary Theresa
Who could not accept it so she gave it to Lisa
A young prostitute who was missing a pearl
On the necklace she broke-late last night

Interlude w/riff til your hand falls off

    Hey!  Since I'm farily sure that my last try to give you this tab was
formatted incorrectly, I'm trying again.  The tab should be in an
attachment to this message under string.tab or ftp.nevada.edu.  Thanks
for your patience.

					Thanks, Chad
