Ashes To Ashes
	(words & music by Jakob Dylan)


Basically the rhythm guitar for this song is played in a power chord fashion.
 I will not transcribe it like that because the organ plays regular chord
shapes.  Just like father like son, I have a bit of the problem understanding
what Dylan is saying but I will try my best:


Intro:  F    Em    Am  (4x)

             F                     Em                Am
Well you can walk like a stranger, head back in your hair
         F                    Em    Am
Bringing gifts, while you act so sincere

F    Em    Am        F    Em    Am

         F            Em          Am
Bringing gifts, oh boy, he~s five years
           F         Em        Am
A game for rocks and traini...ing wheels

F    Em    Am        F    Em    Am
Am

               C      G        F   G        Em
Well I don~t remember you from any of those books
         C          G        F          G         Em   E
Ashes to ashes, and six feet under face down in a box
F                Em                    Am
Where~d you ever learn to treat me like that

F    Em    Am        F    Em    Am

          F               Em                 Am
You don~t see that, baby ahh..., that famous stuff
             F             Em                 Am
You know the Harvard folds law, that penniless rough

F    Em    Am        F    Em    Am
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/w/wallflowers/ashes_to_ashes_crd.html ]
     F                Em                 Am
Your bad luck follows you like a heart attack
           F                Em        Am
Twist your fingers, soon as break your back

F    Em    Am        F    Em    Am
Am

               C      G        F   G        Em
Well I don~t remember you from any of those books
         C          G        F          G         Em   E
Ashes to ashes, and six feet under face down in a box
F                Em                    Am
Where~d you ever learn to treat me like that

F    Em    Am

     F                            Em                     Am
It~s coming from another withered mother who~s just like yours
             F                 Em       Am
Bringing you aches and all those mental sores
F                      Em                Am
Take a little half, so need some for yourself
        F                          Em               Am
Like an itty in the gritty, they always seem by themselves
         F                 Em       Am
Well you must be, had-to-be, one of these
              F           Em    Am
Honey, on the shed on the open tree
F                 Em               Am
Didn~t I meet you once in a liquor store
                  F              Em    Am
I think I saw you hanging by the stage door
            F               Em         Am
Handing out programs to the family theater
            F           Em             Am
Deprive the row, so you don~t miss her or treat her

Am    Am    Am    Am

You take it
Am
Why take it?
G
Fast and ever
       F        Em      Dm
If you gave yourself a chance...

     C         G      F        G            Em
Well I don~t remember you from any of those books
                   C    G      F         G         Em   E
Ashes to, ashes and six feet under faced down in a box
F                Em                    Am
Where~d you ever learn to treat me like that?


F    Em    Am...

(the song fades out on these chords)
