Southern Sun Chords

Great new song that I'm mildly addicted to
Not 100 % sure of the lyrics, but the chords aren't rocket surgery...

Standard Tuning

Intro Verse [listen for picking pattern- basically thumb the bass note then pick the 
rest of the strings]

In all you'll see;
Was it that came down on me that night?
A                             F
 A conjury, I held on to that moment in black

Just to make it alive...

Verse strumming intro
   F  Am  G  Am2
e -0--0---0---0---|
B -1--1---3---0---|
G -2--2---4---5---|
D -3--2---5---7---|
A -3--0---5---7---|
E -1--0---3---0---|

*Note you hammer onto, then pull off of normal [Am] between the F's
      you play the [Am2] quickly when changing to the G [you slide the whole F up to the G]

F                                 [Am]   F
You sit out there in the coverin'-
F                                 [Am2]  G
In the baskings of the holy night
G                            Am   G
And I was lucid and conscious
G                            F
And hovering like a firefly
F                                 [Am]   F
Iím lying stretched out on the canopy
F                                 [Am2]  G
It put it's arms out slow
G                            Am   G
And I heard the whispers of silence
Floating down from the radio
[ Tab from: ]
So come on, come on I'm ready now
I got the feeling honey like I'm ready to roll... [ohhh]
You see Iím not gonna wait till the end of me
Cause I got the burning fire in the bed of my soul [ahhhh ohhh]

Verse 2
I saw the light from a kettle gun
16 days under a Southern Sun
And there were times when I thought that
I wouldn't mind it if I lost my mind out there
You wouldn't believe me if I told you so
The things I saw were enough to make the man in me a man in me
Mmm make a man of me

Chorus 2
So come on, come on Iím ready now
Go get your things out honey, letís get ready to roll...
Oh I can feel the wave coming over me
Iíve been waiting for this day too long just to let it all go...


As a child I was wonder-eyed
At the thought that I might know
F                           C      G
A life in the ecstasy of rockín'roll O-oh-oh ...
Now taking it slow... Iím an arrow in a bow...
Youíd think that I would know... What it is that makes me roll...
