Cherry Blossom Chords

   
Tab and Arrangement by: Aaron Simpson (Largebehind)
Voicings by: Jack Cookson (Torn Asunder)

This is the Horrible Crowes song ‘Cherry Blossom’ from the record “Elsie”. The chords
are essentially correct, though with alternate voicings for simplicity. The tab should not
be followed 100% as it outlines a basic structure to the intro, take from the tablature 
and play it your own way around the chords. You can play this song in Standard Tuning, or
a whole step down.
So following that rhythm the rest of the song goes like this, for the verses use the
rhythms above, just use the chord names as markers. The chords in the chorus are played
un-arpeggiated, and as barre chords, whereas the chords in the bridge are too
un-arpeggiated, although they are in the open form. BEFORE I get anyone criticising my
tab for having a C# chord rather than C#m, it's just used to symbolise the octave chord.

Verse 1:
B           C#                             Aadd9
I drive this car through the city every night
F#m7                 Riff              Asus2
There's a quiet I never heard before
B                        C#             Add9
And lonely, my sister could not describe
F#m7                     Riff        Asus2
All the good things gone wrong

Chorus Variant 1:
A
And there was blood on my teeth
F#m
From the long winter here
A
Bones broke in half
A
A stain on my shirt
F#m
From a couple hours out with the boys
E                                                       (Guitar Lick 1)
And all good things come to an end
B5                             C#5        Aadd9
And all memory has left my bones

Interlude: F#m7 Riff Asus2

Verse 3:
B    C#                         Aadd9
If I drove straight off this bridge
F#m7                  Riff                 Asus2
Only God and my baby would know
B        C#                                 Aadd9
I'm sure she'd be laughing, come during spring
F#m7                          Riff                     Asus2
With some fella who just said the right thing

Chorus Variant 2:
A
And there was blood on my teeth
F#m
From just what they did here
A
Bones broke in half
A
A stain on my shirt
F#m
From a couple hours out with the boys
E                                                        (Guitar Lick 2)
And all good things come to an end


Bridge:
Dsus4                                 F#m
See all I can do is think about you
         Bm                                      A
And miss all your kisses like the spring
E
But if I had a sign
                                                Dsus4
That one day you'd be mine again, oh no
F#m                                   Bm
If I could hold you right then
A                                                                           E
As the chill in this season sputtered and spit and died with...


Chorus Variant 3:
A
Blood on my teeth
F#m
From just what they did here
A
Snow tumbling down on the ground
F#m
And me stumbling out of my heart
A (Diminuendo)
Finding cherry blossoms on the hood of my car
