Guitar tabs with lyrics

Ben Harper, The Will to Live
from the album The Will to Live, 1997


Tuning - standard guitar tuning with the bottom A chord diagramE MajorE string
dropped to A chord diagramD MajorD
Note that Ben plays this with a slide on his weissenborn,
but you can still play this by using your index finger as a barre.


Intro and verse riff:
E-------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------
G-------------------------------------------------
D-------------------------------------------------
A-----------5----3--2--0-------------5--3--2--0---
D---0--0---------------------0--0-----------------


Just before the chorus - i.e. at the words "she's still alive"
play:
E----------------------------------------
B---------------------------3------------
G---------------------------2------------
D---------------------------0------------
A-----------5--3--2--0------0------------
D----0--0-------------------0------------

and hold the A chord diagramD MajorD chord until:
with plenty of distortion
    A chord diagramEb MajorEb      A chord diagramBb majorBb        A chord diagramFF       A chord diagramC majorC
E--------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------
G--------------------------------------------------
D---1-------8---------3-------10-------------------
A---1-------8---------3-------10-------------------
D---1-------8---------3-------10-------------------

this is the chord progression for the chorus and the end bit,
and the sort of siren sound that Ben gets in the last chorus can
be imitated by bending the A chord diagramBB string upwards at the 11th and 13th
frets, provided your amp is going flat out


The chord progression for the solo goes
A chord diagramC majorC   A chord diagramG+G    D, and maybe I'll tab out the solo a bit later when I find
some spare time. Enjoy
