Green Grow the Rushes
Words and music by Berry, Buck, Mills & Stipe

Transcribed by John Carroll (sorry no words)

The song opens with this, the chorus (3 times):
E---0----------------0-----0-------
B-----2-3-SL-5-5-0-----3-----3---3-        SL - slide up
G------------------4-----4-----4---        sl - slide down
D----------------------------------         H - hammer on
A-0--------------------------------         h - hammer off
E----------------------------------

Then, after the third time through:
E---2-----2-----2-2-2-2-2-----------
B-----3-----3---3-3-3-3-3-0---------
G-4-----4-----4-4-4-4-4-4-0---------
D-----------------------------------
A-----------------------------------
E-----------------------------------

The chords are D Dsus D G Bm E with some picking thrown in (2 times):
E-2-2-3-2-2-3-3-3-----------2-----------0-0---------0------------------
B-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------3-----------0---0---------0----------------
G-2-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-----------4-----------1-----1-H-2-----0--------------
D-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------0-4-----------2------------------------------
A-----------2-2-2---0-H-2---2-2-2-2-2-2-2------------------------------
E-----------3-3-3-3---------------------0------------------------------

Then, in a 7ChineseBros kind of way, hit the D string in a steady
rhythym and add the G-string notes appropriately (listen to the disk):
E----------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------------
G-14-14-14-12-11-11-11-12-12-12-11-9-9-9-11-11-11-9-7-7-7-H-9-h-7-4-7-7
D--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-0-0-0--0--0--0-0-0-0-0---------0-0-0
A----------------------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------------
Go through this twice, then back to the chords, and then the chorus
again.  All the verses have this structure until the last one.

In the last verse, after the chords, it goes like:
E----------------------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------------------
G-14-14-14-12-11-11-11-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-14-14-14-12-11-11-11----

Whew!  This probably isn't exactly right, but should give you a good
start on figuring out where I screwed up!

Enjoy,

John
