Dire Wolf Tab

   
The Dire Wolf-The Tragically Hip

Here ya go, by popular demand, another Hip tab from "In Violet Light".  Nice and easy this one is, though the D thing is open for debate.  I'm on my acoustic, and that's as good as I can make it sound....comments?  markbunt@shaw.ca

   This here is the D-THING riff that the song is based around.  Try and make it work for you and your guitar style....there are also all sorts of fills here and there.  You'll have to figure that our yourself

D-THING
 in that September off 
 Isle aux Morts 
 the desultory sea 
 grew more so through the night 
 and made one think of 
 tawny ports, 
 as aspen tremblin' 
 in tomorrow's thorough light 
G
 and of Tallulah Bankhead 
 and Canada Lee 
D-THING
 somewhere far-off, peaceful, sleeping 
 and done with acting 
G
 past the Dire Wolf's lair 
 on a Newfoundland's paws 
D-THING
 close to nowhere 
 and halfway across 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/tragically_hip/dire_wolf_tab.html ]
CHORUS
    G                A 
but never more 'here'
  Bm                   D 
expanse getting broader
       G                 A 
though bigger boats been 
Bm
done by less water 
    G               A Bm              D
tho better boats been done by this water 
    G               A D-THING
tho better boats been done by less water 

D-THING
 in that september off 
 Isle aux Morts 
 colourable seas 
 grew more to through the night 

G
 And made one think of 
 yawnin' shores 

D-THING
 Gambier-bleached 
 in tomorrow's thorough light 

G
 and the Tallulah Bankhead 
 and Canada Lee 

D-THING
 somewhere far-off, peaceful, sleeping 
 they learned to love sleep 

cHORUS
at the Dire Wolf's crest 
the Newfoundland paused 
desolate's best 
was gotten across 
we were never more 'here' 
expanse getting broader 
when better boats been 
done by this water 

SOLO (G D-THING)

cHORUS
at the Dire Wolf's best 
the Newfoundland paused 
so desperate as 
to be a lost cause 
you were never more hear 
expanse getting broader 
when better boats been 
done by this water 
where bigger boats been done by less water 
and betting boats been done by this water 
when bigger boats been done by less water 
and better boats been done by this water
