Barstools and Dreamers  Widespread Panic

Main Chords: 1st played: 1-1-87

[F#m] [B] [A] [G]  
Main Slide Riff:

The [F#m]barstools built for dreamers
We'll [B]fit fine and [A]find
[G] All the worlds [F#m]dreams have died
But to[F#m]night they're only taking thirsty people
Who've been [B]pullin' on their [A]drinks
[G] From a glass that lies a [F#m]bar length wide
And in the [B]drink there swim the swimmers[F#m]
And [B]those whose swims have [F#m]dried
Take a[F#m]nother look, take another pull
Take another pour, take another pull
Before you [F#m]take a ride
[E]Heir to an open barstool, there's one by "Mary the Fool"
[B]Ma-[Bb]ry [F#m]sees [F#m]the bar[B]ten[Bb]der'[F#m]s knees
And she [A]says that [G#]it's a [F#m]bottle [E]that [C#]she [B]was [G#]born [F#m]to [E]be
And I [E]say, "that's cool.. just right, right for a fool."
[B]Thin[Bb]kin' [F#m]whiskey, [F#m]she [B]bought [Bb]me a [F#m]drink
[A]I won't [G#]cross a [F#m]word [E]of [C#]what [B]the [G]la-[F#m]dy [E]thinks
(same chords as above)
Pray I don't cross what the lady thinks
She's been thinking out too loud though
This time I can't hear the pinball machine
Well there's a birdman playing tiny little sideways bongos
Pulling all those words down, down, down
Look at how the numbers glow
In the glass there rolls the iron ball
And a quarter states the toll that's all (that's all)
You take another look, take another pull
Take another pour, take another pull
Before you take a chance
Look at your hands, they're just right for a new kinda dance
Just forget what your bodies just done
And ride all the waves that the drums rest on
Like the smallest babies do,
ya' know the little newborn babies do
If there's some food that the moon feeds on
A baby won't hold it back, won't hold it back
Mike solo over an E
JB slide solo over an F#
Bridge Riff (w/ variations on the melody):


The slide at the end of each line lets you change
hand positions to where you need to be for the next part.
Just alternate the above over and over.
Baby doesn't know what I just said
Baby doesn't know the words that I just used
Babies haven't learned any words yet
Babies haven't been used by any words yet
People only think, people only talk
People only think in words they already know
The babies haven't learned any words yet (no)
They only know what the people feel
They don't really care what the people think
They only care what the people feel
Music only knows what the people feel
Babies only care and hear what the people feel, feel
[B] [B] [B] [A] [B] [B] [B] [A]  

[G] [F#]
