Notes: This song was recorded in July, 2007 at Allaire Studios, Shokan, NY. It was
by Paul Stacey and The Black Crowes.

“Rich came up with that riff and it all fell out from that. It's a song about loss but
the realization that nothing can really kill you. This life is an experience and we can't
from any of it. It's kind of harsh but it definitely represents letting go. It's the 
Taoist rock song on the album.” - Chris Robinson

Tuning: DGDGBD (Open G)

Unlike I first thought, this one is in fact in open G (well, Rich plays it live in that
and some of the positions do make more sense that way, so I'm going to assume it was
in open G as well).  This tab contains the rhythm guitar only, and is not transcribed 
for note.

For the second chorus, cut out the last two measures and continue straight into the interlude...

Interlude:                                                    | First Ending
     | Second Ending

     |----------------2--|
     |--------2-------2--|
 x4  |----2-4---4-2-4-2--|
     |--2-------------2--|
     |-------------------|

This whole figure is played four times.  The last time through continue on to the second
 It's hard to tell what Rich is doing here because the sound gets a little muddy on the
so this will suffice.  After the interlude, the chorus is repeated, and Rich repeatedly 
the chords over the "set your mind to fly" lyrics and Luther's slide lines.
