  1. Anyone have any new updates for LisK tabs/chords. I am not good at figuring chords out.
  2. Admin notation: Sorry, but we can't allow the posting of videos of Jeff and/or Wilco. I've had to remove this video link. From VC's Rules and Regulations: Wilco has a long-standing policy against the videotaping of their shows, and out of respect for this policy, the posting of such videos on Via Chicago is not allowed. This also applies to solo Jeff Tweedy shows. VC Rules & Regulations

  4. You Are Not Alone - Mavis Staples (Jeff Tweedy) You're not alone, I'm with you, I'm goin' there too What's that song, can't be sung... by two? A broken home, a broken heart Isolated and afraid Open up this is a raid I wanna get it through to you You're not alone You're not alone, every night, I stand in your place Every tear, on every face, tastes the same A broken dream, a broken heart Isolated and afraid Open up this is a raid I'm gonna get it through to you You're not alone An open hand, an open heart There's no need to be afraid Open up this is a raid I wanna get it through to you You're not alone I wanna get it through to you You're not alone I'm gonna get it through to you You're not alone

  6. Can anyone help with the chords to "Broken Heart", lyrics and link posted below. Ok I "think" I have figured this out. If anyone can improve, please post reply. Thanks Broken Heart - Skip Spence (Wilco w Feist) Broken Heart - Skip Spence (Wilco w Feist) Dm7 = 000231 Cmaj9 = 020010 A [C]broken heart would be lovely [F]Broken on the [C]ground A knife stuck in the ribs of me Would [Dm7]be better be [F]found [C]Hanging tree blowing gently A [F]noose would be ig[C]nored Then to [C]stand [Cmaj9]upon the re[Am]ceiving [G]end Of the [F]right hand [G]of the [C]Lord [G]Like a thirsty [D]cowboy In a [F]lake his tongue does [C]rest Jumps[G] in and he [D]can not swim And [F]drowns himself to [C]death [G]Or a frozen [D]mountaineer He [F]chugs up to a stop Catching his [Cmaj9]boot heel [Am]in a [G]rock [F]Two miles [G]from the [C]top An Olympic super swimmer Whose belly does not flop A super racecar driver Whose pit it can't be stopped A honey dripping hipster Whose bee cannot be bopped Better to be rolled in oats Than from the roll be dropped A broken heart would satisfy Broken in a mess A severed eye would gratify My soul I must confess I'd rather have no eyes at all Be blind upon the floor Then to stand upon the receiving end Of the right hand of the Lord Then to stand upon the receiving end Of the right hand of the Lord
  7. Below is from the sadly, long-gone altcountrytab.com. Oh i miss that site. (http://web.archive.org/web/20030424062457/altcountrytab.com/golden_smog/gs-v.htm) I've got two versions of this... basically the same chords. The first is my own attempt, the second is another version I've found. The interpretation of the lyrics is a bit different. Not sure which is correct, as I'm English I find the American accents a little difficult. But I've listened again and I still think my lyrics are quite close... anyway make up your own mind chords by Warren Owen ( wozza@altcountrytab.com ) A lyrical amendment by John Callaghan ( jcallagh@ebtech.net ) Other Smog tabs can be found at www.altcountrytab.com Intro - F G C Verse 1 Am D When I was down she was full of advice, G C cause she'd been there once or twice, F C with a ring on the side of her nose, F C wearing other people's clothes. Am D She'd had her highs and she'd had her lows, G C but in between she show-oh-ed, F C when she smiled everything else died, F G the feeling of good vibes Chorus {Piano Bit - Guitar sounds like a D A7 F G chord sequence } F As if in a dream, G Am The one and only V, F As if in a dream, G C The one and only V. Verse 3 Buying shots and breaking hearts, She used to wait on us down at the bar, Never took as much as she gave, still giving to this day. Staying up half the night Mood swings, yeah we cried. On a cold December day, Vera went away. Repeat Chorus Harmonica Solo Staying up half the night Mood swings, yeah we cried. On a cold December day, Vera went away.

INTRO: (Am) F | G | C | C VERSE ONE: When I was [Am]down she was full of ad[Dm]vice Because she'd [G]been there once or [C]twice She had a [F]ring on the side of her [C]nose Wearin' [F]other people's [C]clothes She had her [Am]eyes and she had her [Dm]nose But in be[G]tween she [C]showed When she [F]smiled everything else [C]died [F]V let off a good [G]vibe [G] CHORUS: [ Dm | Am | F | F | G | G ] As if in a [F]dream My [G]one and only [Am]V [Am/G] As if in a [F]dream My [G]one and only [C]V [C] VERSE TWO: Body shots and the breaking of hearts She used to wait on us down at the park Never took as much as she gave She's still givin' to this day Staying up half the night Mood swings if we cry On a cold December day V up and went away repeat CHORUS HARP SOLO: Am | Dm | G | C | F | C | F | C VERSE THREE: Staying up half the night Mood swings if we cry On a cold December day V up and went away repeat CHORUS [resolve to C]

  11. Angel Eyes Frank Sinatra Writen by: Dennis/Brent Hey drink up all you people And Order anything you see have fun you happy people The drink and the laughs on me Try to think that love's not around Still it's uncomfortably near My old heart ain't gaining any ground Because my angel eyes ain't here Angel eyes, that old Devil sent They glow unbearably bright Need I say that my love's mispent Mispent with angel eyes tonight So drink up all of you people Order anything you see And have fun you happy people The drink and the laughs on me Pardon me but I got to run The fact's uncommonly clear I got to find who's now the number one And why my angel eyes ain't here Excuse me while I disappear
  12. PATCHES Clarence Carter I was born and raised down in Alabama On a farm way back up in the woods I was so ragged that folks used to call me Patches Papa used to tease me about it 'Cause deep down inside he was hurt 'Cause he'd done all he could My papa was a great old man I can see him with a shovel in his hands, see Education he never had He did wonders when the times got bad The little money from the crops he raised Barely paid the bills we made For, life had kick him down to the ground When he tried to get up Life would kick him back down One day Papa called me to his dyin' bed Put his hands on my shoulders And in his tears he said He said, Patches I'm dependin' on you, son To pull the family through My son, it's all left up to you Two days later Papa passed away, and I became a man that day So I told Mama I was gonna quit school, but She said that was Daddy's strictest rule So ev'ry mornin' 'fore I went to school I fed the chickens and I chopped wood too Sometimes I felt that I couldn't go on I wanted to leave, just run away from home But I would remember what my daddy said With tears in his eyes on his dyin' bed He said, Patches I'm dependin' on you, son I tried to do my best It's up to you to do the rest Then one day a strong rain came And washed all the crops away And at the age of 13 I thought I was carryin' the weight of the Whole world on my shoulders And you know, Mama knew What I was goin' through, 'cause Ev'ry day I had to work the fields 'Cause that's the only way we got our meals You see, I was the oldest of the family And ev'rybody else depended on me Ev'ry night I heard my Mama pray Lord, give him the strength to face another day So years have passed and all the kids are grown The angels took Mama to a brand new home Lord knows, people, I shedded tears But my daddy's voice kept me through the years Sing Patches, I'm dependin' on you, son To pull the family through My son, it's all left up to you Oh, I can still hear Papa's voice sayin' Patches, I'm dependin' on you, son I've tried to do my best It's up to you to do the rest I can still hear Papa, what he said Patches...
