Dave Matthews Band chords for Long black veil

Guitar chords with lyrics

"Long Black Veil" as performed by dmb
      (off the CD "Listener Supported Disk II [a live disk])
         transcribed by Corey M. and is my own interpretation       of the
song

    This is a traditional song dmb picked up, and i heard it on the live CD
and liked it a lot, so i tabbed it out.  This song is pretty simple if you
listen to the CD a few times you'll get the strum pattern which is hard to
actually write out, but the riff and progression is easy.  The strums
sometimes change; so i put in what i heard.  Also, the tabbed out strum is
just supposed to give you a good idea of what to play, or you can listen to
it and figure it out easily.  If you cant play the keyboards you're missing
out on a cool solo in the middle of the song. But anyways this song contains
3 barred chords which are these:

    C:  E----  G:  E----       F:  E----
        B---5      B---3           B---1
        G---5      G---4           G---2
        D---5      D---5           D---3
        A---3      A---5           A---3
        E----      E---3           E---1

    This is the main riff played most of the song in the verses and four
times in the intro:

    Note: partway in the 3rd verse Dave switches to a strum instead of the

riff

    This is the prechorus, play notes in parenthesis twice, except for the
slide, play that only the 2nd time (I thought i'd tab out the strum too, but
any strum similar will sound fine):                            A chord diagramFF         A chord diagramC majorC
