Sound of Lies
by the Jayhawks
from the album "Sound of Lies"
Transcribed and submitted by Nick Sonderup

This is a great acoustic song for a great "new" Jayhawks. If they can
keep putting together albums like this one I don't think they will have
any problems, that's not to say that I didn't like Marc Olson in the
band, but the new sound is incredible.
This song is pretty easy, but there is one kind of tricky part when it
comes to the C-F-C-G combo. This part will be diagramed like this C h F
C G C. What I mean by this is that it sounds like there is a little bit
of hammering on going on during the C-F-C-G progression. It is more or
less when the C goes to F and then back to C. After a few times you
should be able to hear it. Sorry if the slashes confuse you, they make
it easier for me to time it out.

That's about it. I am pretty confident with most of it, but I know there
are a few grey areas so any suggestions would be great.
