PUSHING THE NEEDLE TOO FAR (Amy Ray)
------------------------------------
[Each chord is one 6/8 measure, except two chords joined by a hyphen are
 one measure _total_.]
[G=320033; C(9)=x32033; F6(9)=xx3233.  Use your index finger to hammer-on
 and pull-off a lot, whenever you feel like it.]
 
G    C(9)    G    C(9)     F6(9) - C(9)    G    F6(9) - C(9)    G    C(9)
[intro]
 
       G                          C(9)                      G       C(9)
Well I woke up this morning, grey dawn, with a prayer on my breath
          G                                   C(9)        G              C(9)
You see I lost something precious, and God'll save me from losing myself
F6(9)   -   C(9)          G     F6(9)   -   C(9)          G    C(9)
  I think I know what's wrong,    I think I know what's wrong
 
     G                         C(9)              G               C(9)
Now, I've met the Queen and I understand why, why she closed the door
        G                                C(9)
I'm not making excuses, but you see I've been there a few times, you know I was
G                       C(9)
  I was knocking on the door
         F6(9)  -   C(9)          G     F6(9)   -   C(9)          G    C(9)
I said I, I think I know what's wrong,    I think I know what's wrong
 
               G                  C(9)                      G     C(9)
See, there's a man, he lived in a house, he had a family of five
         G                           C(9)                  G
Well, he blew up the windows and the doors, he said I just couldn't,
                       C(9)
   I just couldn't survive
 
            Bm                       Am
Well, we've all been removed in one way or another
   Bm                          Am
We don't know our families, we don't need our brothers
D   -  Dsus - D  - Dsus  D-Dsus-D  F6(9)   -   C(9)       G   C(9)   G   C(9)
Pushin' the needle too far,        pushing the needle too far
 
G  C(9)  G  C(9)    G  C(9)  G  C(9)
[Guitar solo]
G  C(9)  G  C(9)    G  C(9)  G  C(9)
[Guitar solo]
 
            G                            C(9)                          G   C(9)
Well if you wake up in the morning, grey dawn, with a prayer on your breath
           G                            C(9)             G                 C(9)
Maybe you lost something precious; your god will save you from losing yourself
F6(9)   -   C(9)          G     F6(9)   -   C(9)          G
  I think I know what's wrong,    I think I know what's wrong
 
         G                    C(9)      G           C(9)   [etc.]
It's the queen who closed the door, the family that lies
The people who turn, the cat that has died
A boy that O.D.'s, a girl with a gun
The world on its knees, the band on the run
(You'd help me more by not giving in)
(I said you'd help me more by not giving in)
(You'd help me more by not giving in)
(I said you'd help me more, now don't you give in)
 
[Ad lib on G & C(9) for a while]
 
         F6(9)  -   C(9)          G     F6(9)   -   C(9)          G    C(9)
I said I, I think I know what's wrong,    I think I know what's wrong
 
[slowly:]       F6(9)   -   C(9)       G   [end on slow arpeggio of G chord]
          We're pushing the needle too far
 
 
 
STRUMMING PATTERN:
 
[Amy Ray probably doesn't strum every measure exactly the same, but these are
 typical.  Note that this isn't the intro, or the chorus, or anything; it's
 just for illlustrative purposes.  ("d"=strum down, "u"=strum up.)]
 
  G                        C(9)                     F(9)        C(9)

GUITAR SOLO:
 
=    hammer-on or pull-off
/    slide
T    tenth fret (takes up less space this way)
 
t16  denotes 16th-note triplets; other than those, the timing and spacing
      are accurate.

[The (8) on the B string in the second-to-last measure is only played the
 first time through, coming out of the solo.  After that, play the 2 on
 the G string.]
