This is variously played by the guitar in the intro
Verse:
[Am]Get the rocks in the box
[G]Get the water right down to your socks
[G]This bulkhead's made of fallen brethren [Am]bones
[Am]We all do what we can
[G]We endure our fellow man
[G]And we sing our songs to the headframe's creaks and moans
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/decemberists/rox_in_the_box_crd.html )
Chorus:
And it's [F]one, two, three on the [C]wrong side of the lee
What were you [G]meant for?
What were you [Am]meant for?
And it's [F]seven, eight, nine, you get your [C]shovel back in line
And [G]if you ever make it to ten, you won't make it a[Am]gain
And [G]if you ever make it to ten, you won't make it a[Am]gain
FILL - Same as intro, but played on fiddle an octave higher
And you won't make a dime
On this gray granite mountain mine
Of dirt you're made and to dirt you will return
But while we're living here
Let's get this little one thing clear
There's plenty of men to die; you don't jump your turn
CHORUS
FILL - Fiddle again
ACCORDION SOLO
CHORUS 2x
FIDDLE OUTRO
End on Am
I might come back and transcribe the solos, but not today. Have fun!
