HAND ME DOWNS (Amy Ray) ----------------------- [Amy and Emily play pretty different parts in this song. Amy plays in the key of G with a capo on the 2nd fret; Emily plays in A with no capo. Because of this discrepancy, I'm going to list the entire song twice. First Amy's part, then Emily's.] [Most of the Emily part wasn't figured out by me; credit for that goes to Scot Ninneman (scotjohn@leland.stanford.edu).]
AMY:
Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) [intro]
Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) I've taken so many down Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) I've helped them all to dismount Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) I've followed so many down Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) I take their hand-me-downs
Am C G - D C - D All with hope, all with hope, that emptiness brings fullness G - D C - D And loss of love brings wholeness Am C G - D C - D All with hope, all with hope, that emptiness brings fullness G - D C - Bm7 (Asus9...) And loss of love brings wholeness to us all Asus9 Asus9/C G D Asus9 Asus9/C G D (...all) [instrumental]
Everything that I believe crawls from underneath the street Everything I truly love comes from somewhere far above Everything that I believe is wrong with you, is wrong with me Everything I truly love, I love in you and I love in me [extra half measure]
So give me hope, give me hope, that emptiness brings fullness And loss of love brings wholeness All with hope, all with hope, that emptiness brings fullness G - D C - Bm7 Am(9) Am(9) And loss of love brings wholeness to us all
G G D(9) D(9) Swear you can't swim the river G G D(9) D(9) I saw you running to jump in G G D(9) D(9) I swore I'd never be your sinner G G Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) Till I held your sin; Hand me down....
Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) [guitar solo] Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) Asus9 Asus9/C G D(9) [guitar solo]
Now you ask me why I'm here; the same as you, I'm scared, it's fear I've become the beggar now, and you've become the saint somehow Twist the words and place the blame, and tell me know, aren't we the same? Tripping in our yellow feet, checking underneath our sheets [extra half bar]
For some hope, give me hope, that emptiness brings fullness And loss of love brings wholeness All with hope, all with hope, that emptiness brings fullness G - D C - Bm7 Am. And loss of love brings wholeness to us all
AMY'S CHORDS (any I haven't listed are "normal"): Asus9: x02200 Asus9/C: x32200 G: 320033 or 320003 D(9): xx0230 Am(9): x02210 and x02200 (hammer-on/pull-off between the two) [Amy might play a lot of the G chords as G6 (320030 or 320000).]
