Locust Street - The Black Crowes
 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Michael Chabot (amorican489)
Email: michael.chabot@hotmail.com
Tuning: Standard (E-A-D-G-B-E)
I noticed there was only one other tab for this song, and it excluded the simple little
played in the intro and during the verses. So here it is.
The song has a slow country feel to it. I finger-pick this song; I find it's more
This is a very easy song off the new album, "Warpaint", but it's going to go down as a classic.
Rich plays a steel-string acoustic guitar
Luther is playing a mandolin, as well as an electric during the solo
Intro Riff (Played ONLY at the start of the song and after the solo)
* Hold the 3rd fret bass note (G) throughout the riff
Riff A

Verse begins
*Tip for the verses: When you play the G after the Em, you play the intro riff, but half
intro's length. Like this:

Dry bread.....on the table
[Em]Dry bread on the [G]table
[Em]Burn the mill salt the [G]paper
[D]And its easy pick-ins on Locust Street
[C]There's no place to [G]hide
[D]And you can't find love on Locust Street
[C]But you can hear the sunrise [G]crying
[C]Can't you hear the sunrise [G]crying
[C]A song for you [G]alone[Em]
I play this little riff before going to riff after first chorus (it's the same one you
during the verse). Let the notes with * next to it ring:
Riff B

[Em]Sad eyes, weeping [G]willow
[Em]Black cat blues, blacked out [G]window
[D]And its easy pick-ins on Locust Street
[C]There's no place to [G]hide
[D]And you can't find love on Locust Street
[C]But you can hear the sunrise [G]crying
[C]Can't you hear the sunrise [G]crying
[C]A song for you [G]alone[Em]
[Am]Just a glimpse of what [F]love could be
[C]Once a dream that I [G]owned
[Am]What of many lonely [F]longing souls
[C]At least I'm not [G]alone
*Guitar Solo - Luther plays a nice melodic solo in the key of A, mess around with it.
played during the solo are:
 
 Am - F - C - G - Am - F - C - C - end on Em

*Before going to the next verse, play Intro (Riff A)
[Em]Ripe off the vine now lay [G]rotten
[Em]Like a dead end street forever [G]forgotten
[D]And its easy pick-ins on Locust Street
[C]There's no place to [G]hide
[D]And you can't find love on Locust Street
[C]But you can hear the sunrise [G]crying
[C]Can't you hear the sunrise [G]crying
[C]A song for you [G]alone
Enjoy!
