HAND ME DOWNS (Amy Ray)
-----------------------
[Amy and Emily play pretty different parts in this song.  Amy plays in
 the key of G with a capo on the 2nd fret; Emily plays in A with no capo.
 Because of this discrepancy, I'm going to list the entire song twice.
 First Amy's part, then Emily's.]
[Most of the Emily part wasn't figured out by me; credit for that goes to


AMY:

Asus9  Asus9/C  G  D(9)    Asus9  Asus9/C  G  D(9)    Asus9  Asus9/C  G  D(9)
[intro]

Asus9   Asus9/C  G         D(9)
  I've taken      so many down
Asus9  Asus9/C                  G         D(9)
              I've helped them all to dismount
Asus9   Asus9/C  G         D(9)
  I've followed   so many down
Asus9  Asus9/C              G           D(9)
              I take their hand-me-downs

          Am             C          G  -  D          C  - D
All with hope, all with hope, that emptiness brings fullness
     G   -   D            C  -  D
And loss of love brings wholeness
          Am             C          G  -  D          C  - D
All with hope, all with hope, that emptiness brings fullness
     G   -   D            C   -   Bm7     (Asus9...)
And loss of love brings wholeness to us all
    Asus9  Asus9/C  G  D    Asus9  Asus9/C  G  D
(...all) [instrumental]

Everything that I believe crawls from underneath the street
Everything I truly love comes from somewhere far above
Everything that I believe is wrong with you, is wrong with me
Everything I truly love, I love in you and I love in me  [extra half measure]

So give me hope, give me hope, that emptiness brings fullness
And loss of love brings wholeness
All with hope, all with hope, that emptiness brings fullness
     G   -   D            C   -   Bm7    Am(9)  Am(9)
And loss of love brings wholeness to us all

G       G                  D(9)  D(9)
  Swear you can't swim the river
G           G                D(9)  D(9)
  I saw you running to jump in
G             G             D(9)   D(9)
  I swore I'd never be your sinner
G       G      Asus9  Asus9/C  G  D(9)
Till I held your sin;            Hand me down....

Asus9  Asus9/C  G  D(9)    Asus9  Asus9/C  G  D(9)    Asus9  Asus9/C  G  D(9)
[guitar solo]
Asus9  Asus9/C  G  D(9)    Asus9  Asus9/C  G  D(9)
[guitar solo]

Now you ask me why I'm here; the same as you, I'm scared, it's fear
I've become the beggar now, and you've become the saint somehow
Twist the words and place the blame, and tell me know, aren't we the same?
Tripping in our yellow feet, checking underneath our sheets  [extra half bar]

For some hope, give me hope, that emptiness brings fullness
And loss of love brings wholeness
All with hope, all with hope, that emptiness brings fullness
     G   -   D            C   -   Bm7    Am.
And loss of love brings wholeness to us all

AMY'S CHORDS (any I haven't listed are "normal"):
Asus9: x02200    Asus9/C: x32200    G: 320033 or 320003    D(9): xx0230
Am(9): x02210 and x02200 (hammer-on/pull-off between the two)
[Amy might play a lot of the G chords as G6 (320030 or 320000).]
