Cracks Tab

   
Artist:  Thea Gilmore
Song:    "The Cracks"
Album:   Avalanche

Transcribed by:  Sean Ainsworth

Capo on 1st fret.  Fingerpicked.  Chords are relative to capo.


Chords used (standard tuning):

    E   Am   Bm7   A
e---0----0----2----0---
A---0----1----0----2---
G---1----2----2----2---
D---2----2----1----2---
B---2----0----2----0---
E---0----0----0----0---


I've broken the tab into progressions to make it easier to write out and read.  Really the
only difference between this and playing the chord twice is that there's an extra note (in
parentheses) which is sometimes picked and sometimes isn't; I'll leave that up to you, but
there are chords played only once, so watch out for missing *asterisks*.  

Progressions:

Intro:  E* - Am* - E* - Am*


Verse:


E*            Am*                      E*          Am*     
   Don't stop singing, it's a beautiful sound

E*            Am*                   E*             Am*  
   I'll get the drinks in before we hit the ground

Bm7*                  A*      E*         
   And I don't know who'll speak first

Bm7*                A*          E          Am   E*
   It doesn't matter anyway tonight let's be best strangers

Am*                    E*
   They closed the bar an hour ago
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/thea_gilmore/cracks_tab.html ]
Am*                            E*
   Last train whistles down the track

Bm7*                     A*                 E Am E*
   But I see something growing up from the cracks





E*		Am*		 	E*          Am*
   I'll show you my heart if you'll show me yours

E*		      Am*		 E*               Am*
   Are we wild and unique babe or just par for the course

Bm7*                   A*       E*
   What have we got to lose anyway

Bm7*                      A*                    E  Am    E*
   From one drunk to another, I think what I'm trying to say is

Am*                      E*
   Some mirrors have been broken

Am*                    E*
   And some things pull you back

Bm7*                  A*           E      Am   E* 
   But I see something growing up from the cracks





E* - Am* - E* - Am* - E* - Am* - E* - Am*





E*                   Am*                   E*       Am*
   We've all seen the thunder that's coming in low

E*                        Am*           E*          Am*
   And each day tries to run you right off the road

Bm7*                   A*     E*
   But if you listen hard for the sound

Bm7*                      A*                     E   Am   E*
   We'll get a thousand hooves drumming in this one horse town and

Am*		     E*
   the lights are out on the west side

Am*                        E*
   and they'll paint the sky in black

Bm7*                         A*           E     Am  E*
   I swear I see something shining on from the cracks




Am*                          E*
   And they closed this bar an hour ago

Am*                          E*
   Last train whistles down the track

Bm7*                     A*             E   Am  E
   But I see something growing up from the cracks
