GRAVEYARD SHIFT
:::::::::::::::

(Farrar/Tweedy) as performed by UNCLE TUPELO


Here's the riff; it's done with a D shape, going to sus4 then removing
your first finger to make G; then lots of hammer-ons.

D                   G
Hometown, same town blues
D                      G
Same old walls closing in
D                         G
Oh what a life a mess can be
D
I'm sitting here thinking of you once again
          G
Won't you talk to me

D D G C D D G C

      D
Well, time won't wait, better open the gate
D
Get up and start what needs to be done

D D G C

D
It's winding down, there's much you missed
D
Working on that graveyard shift

D D G C D D G C

A             G                      A            G
Well, I'm not saying there's nothing wrong as the day comes along
A         G      A            G          D
If what I see is true I could learn to believe
G/D          D
Can't look away
G/D             D           G/D      D
The powers that be might take it all away
  A                 G                D
Together we burn, together we burn away



Some say a land of paradise
Some say a land of pain
Well, which side are you looking from
Some people have it all
Some ?all to gain?

Well a man in a tie'll bum your dime
'Fore he breaks his twenty dollar bill
There's plenty of reasons in this world
We're no longer standing still
But I'm not saying there's nothing wrong as the day comes along
If what I see is true I could learn to believe
Can't look away
The powers that be might take it all away
Together we burn, together we burn away

There's too much time spent looking for a reason
It's the simple ones that ?beat? the most truth
Oh, what a life a mess can be
I'm sitting here thinking of you once again
Give a thought to me

Well, time won't wait, better open the gate
Get up and start what needs to be done
It's running down, there's much you missed
Working on that graveyard shift

But I'm not saying there's nothing wrong as the day comes along
If what I see is true I could learn to believe
Can't look away
The powers that be might take it all away
Together we burn, together we burn away

Notes

For the D G/D bit the following sounds best to me

*       *       *       *       *
D       D     D D   G

7-------7-----7-7---5-------7---7--|
5-------5-----5-5---5-------5---5--|

For the D Dsus4 D Dbend bit play open chords and just pick the first bit,
then bend the top 3 strings (ie the fretted ones) up.
