When the Weight Comes Down  The Tragically Hip



Tabbed by Duncan Koerber <>
The B chord is played like this:

[B]Afternoon, see a guy with rubies on his [A]head
and he's[B] shifting like, shifting like he was[A] dead
and he's[B] hearing something she never[A] said
on his [G]way back home, [A]under his [B]bed
When the [B]wei[G]ght comes [A]down
When the [B]wei[G]ght comes [A]down
In the night there's a girl who doesn't mind her ragged sleeves
knowing someone soon is gonna grieve
and a man he tells her a story, she just don't believe
called "adam never could do right by eve."
and the [B]wei[G]ght comes [A]down
and the [B]wei[G]ght comes [A]down
and the [B]wei[G]ght comes [A]down
down on [F#]you, down on [A]me
and a girl walks by the [Em]burning bush
she asks "what's [G]gone wrong here man?"
and he smiles, says, "Open [A]wide, wide, wide"
In my dreams, a candy coated train comes to my door
with a little girl, I can't have anymore
you know a letter washes up to the shore
that I cannot read and I probably should ignore
when the weight comes down
when the weight comes down
when the weight comes down
A - x02220 or 577655
B - x24442
Em - 022xxx
[F#] [-] [244322] [G] [-] [355433] Duncan
