Solidify  Sheryl Crow

SOLIDIFY - Sheryl Crow
[Dm]Pouring in and around the great wellspring of simple feeling
And I need bearings in the face of your cool cool fire
Walking backwards with the pounding of your voice makes my soul tired
And concrete is as concrete doesn't - and voices can drown
Why should [G7]I? Why should I? Why should I? Why should I?
[Bb7] So[A7b9]lidif[G7]y, make me real
So [Bb7]you [A7b9]can see [Dm]me
I guess you thought I'd hide the sun from my liquid thoughts and make ice
for you
You thought I'd seed my clouds with the rain of your personal dreams
I guess you thought I'd throw confetti at your parade of lofty thoughts
I guess you thought I'd shine good morning in some good morning Jack -
surprise
Why should I? Why should I? Why should I? Why should I?
Solidify, make me real
So you can see me
Pouring in and around the great wellspring of simple feeling
I need bearings in the face of your cool cool fire
Walking backwards with the pounding of your voice makes my soul tired
And concrete is as concrete doesn't - and voices can drown
Why should I? Why should I? Why should I? Why should I?
Solidify, make me real
So you can see me

...........
There are at least three guitars on the recording here (not counting the
spectacular bass-line). There are two electrics, one on each side, and some
acoustic stuff too. The left electric plays with the chords as shown above
in a suitably funky manner -
[+] [+] [+] [+]  
 
 |------9/10-10-10-10----10----------10----9/10-|
 |------9/10-10-10-10----10----------10----9/10-|
 |------9/10-10-10-10----10----------10----9/10-| etc
 |----------------------------------------------|
 |----------------------------------------------|
 |----------------------------------------------|

(compression makes this sound well cool)
Meanwhile, the right electric plays this repeatedly -
[+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+]  
 
 |-------15-13-----------------|-------15-13-------------|
 |-------------15--------13h15-|-------------15----------|
 |-----------------------------|-------------------------|
 |-----------------------------|-------------------------|
 |-----------------------------|-------------------------|
 |-----------------------------|-------------------------|

When you get to the G7 chord , the two electrics keep on with what they're
doing, but an acoustic slide guitar does this -
[+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+]  
 
 |-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
 |-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
 |/12----------|/12----------|/12----------|/12----------|
 |-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
 |-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|
 |-------------|-------------|-------------|-------------|

Then an acoustic guitar (I'm not sure whether or not it's the same one -
you could give the part to one or both of the electric guitars since they
drop out here) plays the chords in much the same way as the left guitar was
doing up to now -
[+] [+] [+] [+]  
 
 |------10---10-10-------10----10-10---10-10----|
 |------9----9--9--------9-----9--9----9--9-----|
 |------10---10-10-------10----10-10---10-10----| etc
 |----------------------------------------------|
 |----------------------------------------------|
 |----------------------------------------------|

When you reach the Dm chord, the electrics go back to what they were doing,
and the acoustic plays
[+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+]  
 
 |-----10--10------------------|-----10--10------------------|
 |/10----10--10----------------|/10----10--10----------------|
 |-------------7--/10----------|-------------7--/10----------|
 |-----------------------------|-----------------------------|
 |-----------------------------|-----------------------------|
 |-----------------------------|-----------------------------|

[+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+]  
 
 |-----10--10------------------|-----10--10------------------|
 |/10----10--10----------------|/10----10--10----------------|
 |-------------7--/10----9-----|-------------7--/10-9--7-----|
 |-----------------------------|-----------------------------|
 |-----------------------------|-----------------------------|
 |-----------------------------|-----------------------------|

After the second verse, this becomes
[+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+]  
 
 |-----10--10------------------|-----10--10------------------|
 |/10----10--10----------------|/10----10--10----------------|
 |-------------7--/10----------|-------------7--/10----------|
 |-----------------------------|-----------------------------|
 |-----------------------------|-----------------------------|
 |-----------------------------|-----------------------------|

[+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+] [+]  
 
 |-----10--10----------------------|---------------------------|
 |/10----10--10--------------------|---------------------------|
 |-------------9--/10--9--10-9---10|----9--10-9--5/////7-------|
 |---------------------------------|---------------------------|
 |---------------------------------|---------------------------|
 |---------------------------------|---------------------------|
