Lady on the Water  Blitzen Trapper

Should be more accurate than the other ones here. You can watch them playing here and get a pretty good view of what they
are playing. Just tell me if there's anything that bothers you in this tab or in life
in general. Enjoy!
Chords do have some hammer on/pull offs that I left out.
You can just play Am-G instead of the Riff.

[D]lady on the [Am]water
make me [G]rich, make me p[D]oor,
lay your [C]flowers at my [G]door
[D]lady on the [Am]water
bring me br[G]anches, bring me tw[D]ine
wrap my h[C]eart upon the v[G]ine
with your w[Em]ine d[C]ye my [G]feathers
D Am Riff1
as the cock crows giving time
( Tab from: )
awake, m[D]y lady on th[Am]e water
share my b[G]read and share my d[D]rink
pay no mi[C]nd to what others [G]think
[D]lady on the [Am]water
with this[G] wind and to [D]flame
with your g[C]rapes and bottled [G]rain,
make your wi[Em]ne o[C]f my [G]worship
D Am Riff1
a divinely strange refrain
or [G]make it r[D]ain
[Am]Em [G]C [D]G [C]D [G]Riff1
my l[D]ady on the w[Am]ater
place your [G]thumb upon my to[D]ngue
be the s[C]ong no one has s[G]ung
[D]lady on the [Am]water
with your [G]jacket blue and s[D]trange
change these riv[C]ers in my ve[G]ins
into wi[Em]ne, l[C]earning,[G] burning,
D Am Riff1
driven deep into this maze
a[G]ll of my da[D]ys
[Am]Em [G]C [D]G [C]D [G]Riff1
my l[D]ady on the w[Am]ater
lead me fr[G]om the wilderness[D]
to countless des[C]erts, dreams, and[G] jests
l[D]ady on the w[Am]ater
rest my he[G]ad upon your che[D]st
leave me on[C]ly when i'm ble[G]ssed
cause i'll [Em]be in m[C]y own c[G]ountry
D Am Riff1
good and dead and gone to rest
th[G]at's the way that's the b[D]est
[Am]Em [G]C [D]G [C]D [G]Riff1
