Studying Stones  Ani DiFranco

Hey, all. This is my first tab, but I'm a music student who plays a lot of stuff by ear,
I think it'll be decent. -- I was really frustrated to find that NO ONE had posted any
or chords of this song, so I sat down and did it myself. It's not exact, but it'll get
really, really close.
Feel free to hit me up for any questions. (thatlizgirl@gmail.com)
Enjoy!
v = the next note is lower
^ = the next note is higher
~ = trill
m = minor
M = major
6 = first inversion; third of the chord in the bass
6/4 = second inversion; fifth of the chord in the bass

VERSES:
cm
I am out here studying stones
Trying to l[Bb]earn to be less alive
Using a[Ab]ll of my will
To keep[Bb] very still
cm cm (add9)
Still even on the inside
cm
I've cut all of the pertinent wires
So my [Bb]eyes can't make that connection
I am [Ab]holding my breath
I am [Bb]feigning my death
cm cm(add9)
When I'm looking in your direction
~~~
'Course [EbM]numb is an old hat
Old as my [DbM]oldest memories
See [Ab]that one's my mother
And [Bb]that one's my father
cm cm(add9)
And that one in the hat, that's me
It's a [EbM]skill I'd hoped to abandon
Bb?
When I got out on the open road
FM?
But any more pent up emotion
Bb? cm(add9)
And I think I'm gonna explode
~~~
cm cm(add9)
There's never been an endeavor so strange
As trying to s[Bb]low the blood in my veins
To [Ab]keep my face blank
As a [Bb]stone that just sank
cm cm(add9)
Until not a ripple remains
cm cm(add9)
I am high above the tree line
Sitting [Bb]cross legged on the ground
When [Ab]all of the forbidden fruit
has [Bb]fallen and rotted
cm cm(add9)
That's when I'm gonna come down
~~~
'Course [EbM]numb is an old hat
Old as my [DbM]oldest memories
See [Ab]that one's my mother
And [Bb]that one's my father
cm cm(add9)
And that one in the hat, that's me
It's a [EbM]skill I'd hoped to abandon
Bb?
When I got out on the open road
FM?
But any more pent up emotion
Bb? cm(add9)
And I think I'm gonna explode
END ON:
