Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Life by the Drop    Stevie Ray Vaughan



the edge....

The intro is just some 'A pentatonic' stuff:
   (this may not be exact)

E-|------------------------------------------------------|
B-|------------------------------------------------------|
G-|----------0-----------2---0---------0--------------2--|
D-|------0h2---0h2p0------------2--0h2----0h2p0----------|
A-|--0h3-------------3p0------------------------3--0-----|
E-|------------------------------------------------------|

   Then there's this thing that I call "standard blues riff" (because I'm
   basically musically illiterate) throughout the verses:

    A                 E                  F#m             D
E-|-------------------------------------------2-2---2-2-----------------------|
B-|-------------------------------------------2-2---2-2-----------------------|
G-|-------------------------------------------2-2---2-2--2-2-4-4--2-2-4-2---:-|
D-|-2-2-4-4--2-2-4-2--------------------------4-4---4-4--0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0---:-|
A-|-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0--2-2-4-4--2-2-4-2---4-4--4-4---4-4-----------------------|
E-|-------------------0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0---2-2--2-2---2-2-----------------------|


   Here's the chorus part ("Livin' your dreams, wo' you on top."):
   (there's some words at the bottom to help keep up)


E-|------2-2---2-2--------------------------2-2---2-2-------------------------|
B-|------2-2---2-2--------------------------2-2---2-2-------------------------|
G-|------2-2---2-2---2-2-4-2----------------2-2---2-2---2-2-4-2---------------|
D-|------4-4---4-4---0-0-0-0----------------4-4---4-4---0-0-0-0---------------|
A-|-4-4--4-4---4-4-----------2-2-4-2---4-4--4-4---4-4------------2-2-4-2------|
E-|-2-2--2-2---2-2-----------0-0-0-0---2-2--2-2---2-2------------0-0-0-0------|
         Livin'...   Wo'...                 My mind...  Lord...


   Then here's where he says "That's how it happens livin' life by the drop":

E-|----------2--------------2-----------------------|
B-|----------2--------------3-----------------------|
G-|----------2------2--2----2------------------2----|
D-|----------4------0--0----0------2-----------2----|
A-|-4-4------4---------------------2-----------0----|
E-|-2-2------2---------------------0----------------|
      That's how it happens livin' life by the drop.
