Sullivan Street  Counting Crows

Recorded by Counting Crows
>From the Album "August and Everything After"
Figured out by
These are the two main chords that make up the song
(actually, the main riff)

Strum those in rhythm, and it should sound right.
Those are the chords for all of the verse parts.
For the bridge, just apreggiate them.
The verse is just a repetition on those chords for 8 bars I think,
heres the chorus
[G]I'm almost [A]drowning in her [Em]sea, shes nearly [G]crawlin on her [D]knees
Fpr the last chorus, its
[G]I'm almost [A]drowning in her [Em]sea, she's nearly [A]crawlin on her [Em]knees,
It's almost [G]everything I [D]need
Essentailly for everything not Tabbed out, play the main riff.
Good luck!

This is a very simple song to play involving a few easy chords with
alternating bass strings played. The effectiveness comes from the haunting,
soulful vocals.
