Anything but Down  Sheryl Crow

Song: Anything But Down
Album: The Globe Sessions.
Tabbed by Gemini.
Hi there! This is the first time that I'm tabbing, so bear with me.
I am also a musician and maybe someday you'll be tabbing my
songs…. (hey, wishful thinking never hurt anyone!). Well, here goes:
Tuning: standard (E A D G B e)
There are parts for two guitars here, but it sounds ok if you play only Guitar
1's (G1) part too, which is what I do. Or if you can find
a friend then they can play Guitar 2 (G2), a lead.
Weird chords:
 E |----0---|
 B |----0---|
 G |----2---|
 D |----0---|
 A |----0---|
 E |----2---| 

'p': pull off
'h': hammer on
'b': bend
's': slide
Intro: (G1) Em x 8 bars (32 beats)
Intro: (G2)
Bar 1 G1 enter Bar 2
 E |-------------|---0h2p0-------------------------- |----0h2p0--------------------|
 B |-------------|-----------------3s2-----0-------- |-----------------3s2-----3---|

Repeat RIFF 1 twice.
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
I light your cigarette, I bring you apples from the vine
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
How quickly you forget, I run the bath and pour the wine
[Em] [F#/A] [C]  
I bring you everything that floats into your mind
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
Now you don’t bring me anything but down (repeat x 3)
When you come round
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
You are a raging sea, I pull myself out everyday
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
I plea insanity, ‘cause I can't leave and I can't stay
[Em] [F#/A] [C]  
You say won’t you come find me and yes is what I’ll say
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
You don’t bring me anything but down (repeat x 2)
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
And everything is crashing to the ground
[G] [D]  
Maybe I'm not the perfect kind
[Am] [C]  
Maybe I’m not what you had in mind
[G] [Am] [C]  
And maybe we’re just killing time
inst. (G1) G D Am C G D Am
inst. (G2)
 e |---3s7---8---10---12s5---3h5p3h5---7---8---10---12s5---5p3---3h5---3s0---| 

(high e, the thinnest string)
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
You with your silky words, and your eyes of green and blue
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
You with your steel beliefs that don’t match anything you do
[Em] [F#/A] [C]  
You were so much easier before you became you.
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
You don’t bring me anything but down. (repeat x 2)
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
And everything just crashes to the ground.
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
When you come around.
[G] [Am] [C]  
When you come around ..
[G] [D]  
Well no more playing seek and hide,
[Am] [C]  
No more long and wasted nights,
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
Can't you make it easy on yourself.
[G] [D]  
Well I know you wish you were strong,
[Am] [C]  
You wish you were never wrong,
G D Am (end by strumming once down on the Am cord.)
Well I got some wishes of my own.
