                All Uncovered
        by The Watchmen
        from the album In the Trees (1994)

This song is in 12/8, so listen to it to get the right feel. It starts
out just with drums, and then the bass plays this:

intro figure 1:

   1 + +  2 + + 3 + +  4 + +
G|---6------6-----6------6---|
D|-4----4-4---4-4----4-4---4-|
A|---------------------------|    x2
E|---------------------------|

figure 2 (intro and verse):

   1 + +  2 + + 3 + +  4 + +           1 + +  2 + + 3 + +  4 + +
G|---9------9-----6------6---|       |---4------------2------2---|
D|/7----7-7---7\4----4-4---4-|       |\2----2-2-4-2-0----0-0---0-|
A|---------------------------|  x3   |---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|       |---------------------------|
 
The guitar comes in after the bass has played figure 2. The same riff
is played over figure 2 once for the intro and then during the verses.

intro and verse riff:

verse 1: (lyrics to the whole song are very tentative)

Lying in bedrooms is easy
It's not like just five years ago
Lately you're over my body
Is that just the place that I want you to be?

verse 2:

Look at the pictures you've gotten
Like signals from oncoming cars
We're covered in cake from the last time
I know it sounds very collected and ?????
Is that just the place that I wanna be?

pre-chorus:

A            E            A            E
Oh can't you see it's the life I don't need
             F#m                       E
Please don't make this thing happen to me  (The way that I wanna be)
A            E            A            E
Oh can't you see it's the life I don't need
             F#m                       E
Please don't make this thing happen to me


Play the verse riff once (doubled by cello in original)

verse 3:

Driving in style with a smile-on
I wish the light could turn red on me now
The day's been so damn hard already
So buckle me in on the highway of sin
Is that just the way that I wanna be?

pre-chorus

E
Ah han...


chorus:

                 A    D
Is that just the way
                 A    D
Is that just the way
      A         D
All uncover-----huh----ed
                 A    D
Is that just the way--ay-ay


There are a few harmonica licks here.

Repeat verse 3 and the chorus. The song ends on a short harmonica
section similar to the one before the guitar solo.
