BREAKUP BREAKDOWN (words & music- Rich Price)

(notes: here's another double capo song. 4th and 6th and that intro lick is the backbone of the song. Here's the tab for that, but made a bit more simple- using on one capo. Tune to drop D (lower the low E to a D) then capo 6th fret.)


VERSE 1 

It's the breakup breakdown again (capo 6th fret- Bm-A-G-D)

Doesn't much matter where or when (Bm-A-G-D)

You feel the cold air rush right in (Bm-A-G-D)

It's the breakup breakdown again (Bm-A-G-D)

She said, "I know you think you've been misled" (G D)

Should I believe in all the things you said? (G D)

CHORUS 1

All I wanna do is cover you like a blanket (Em D)

And pour my heart for you and be sure that you drank it (Em D)

VERSE 2

It's the breakup breakdown again (Bm-A-G-D)

You lose your mind if in love you never win (Bm-A-G-D)

You close the door but still it comes right in (Bm-A-G-D)

It's the breakup breakdown again (Bm-A-G-D)

She said, "I know you're bound to be ok, (G D)

Just loosen your grip the scales will tip our way." (G D)

CHORUS 2

But all I wanna do is cover you like a blanket (Em D)

And pour my heart for you and be sure that you drank it (Em D)


LOVE THE WAY (words & music- Rich Price)

(notes: I play this with two capos- regular capo on the 2nd fret, and a drop D capo on 4th fret, and I play D-G in that voicing, where I let the low E [which is actually F#] ring out, but the following is an easier way of playing the song)

Capo 2nd fret E-A (song is in F#)

INTRO E-A x 4

VERSE 1

MARIANNE (words & music- Rich Price)

(notes: only one capo on this one, but it's the 'drop D', on the 2nd fret, so a D [with the low E ringing out] is a booming E chord. The chords are a little unusual, so check out the fingers of the three main chords below.)

Capo 2 (song is really in E, but play dropped D, verses drone in D)

FAULTLINE (words Rich Price, music Rich Price & Clint Bierman)

(notes: only one capo, and on the 2nd fret. G/B = 020030, Cmaj = 032000)

capo 2

C G/B Am
Sizing up like an old lover
C G/B Am
That you meet on the street
C G/B Am
Keep your feelings under cover
Dm C G
'Til you feel the heat
F C
All the sidewalks are melting

F Cmaj
And I can't see to read the sign
F C
But I swear there's been motion
G
Here at the faultline

VERSE 2

C G/B Am
The blue car that's in the driveway
C G/B Am
Hasn't moved an inch
C G/B Am
I bet it all that you'd go my way
Dm C G
But you flew away at a fever pitch
F C
All the sidewalks are melting
F Cmaj
Blood red like wine
F C
But I feel it all resettle
G
Here at the faultline

CHORUS 1

Am E 
You know what they say find some sunlight
F C G
Leave it in water some place and it oughta just grow
Am E
Don't throw it away if it feels right
F C G
If the faultline's been shaking it's you that's been making it so

BRIDGE

C G/B Am
Shadows of romance and echoes of true hearts beat
C G/B Am
For the daydreamer the night falls fast
C G/B Am
And the blue stars shiver and the fall wind deliver
Dm C G
The thought it's gone at last
F C
All the sidewalks are melting
F Cmaj
I can't see to read the sign
F C G
But I feel it all resettle here at the faultline

CHORUS 2
Am E
You know what they say find some sunlight
F C G
Leave it in water some place and it oughta just grow
Am E
Don't throw it away if it feels right
F C G?
If it feels right then it must be right, I know


ANNABELLE (words & music Rich Price/Greg Naughton)

(notes: this is in an open G tuning- DGDGBD, but here are the chords in standard tuning- I think.) 

VERSE 1
G D
Oh well Annabelle baby
C G
The prettiest girl in the town
G D
With visions of grandeur
D
But no one around ya
C G
To keep your feet flat on the ground

CHORUS 1
C
It started off roses
G
Like dreams coming true
C
And striking up poses
G
All that you knew
D
Don't wait for your time, baby,
G
'Cause time isn't waiting for you

VERSE 2 
G D
Oh well, Annnabelle, baby,
C G
Ain't nothing time won't reveal
G
The prodigal daughter
D
Like sun on the water
C G
Reflections of something that's real

CHORUS 2
C
So lead with your heart, baby,
G
In all that you do
C
And make a new start, maybe,
G
Your light shining through
D
And don't wait for your time baby,
G
'Cause time isn't waiting for you

BRIDGE:
CHORUS 1
G-C-G…

VERSE 3

Oh well, Annabelle, baby,
C G
Take me now to your sweet sixteen
G
I'll sit down before you
D
Let the candles adore you
C G
Like a vision from out of my dream

CHORUS 3
C
It started off roses
G
Like dreams coming true
C
Just striking up poses
G
All that you knew
D
But don't wait for your time, baby
G
Time isn't waiting for you
D
Don't wait for your time, baby,
G
Time isn't waiting for you


FROM NOTHING (words Rich Price, music Rich Price & Jeff Symonds)

(notes: the dreaded return of the double capo! Except this is a little different. Ok, it's very different. Place one capo on the 7th fret, covering all the strings. Place the second capo on the 9th fret, but so that it doesn't cover the B and high E strings. Then play an Em and let the two highest strings ring out- there's the root chord of the song. The chord G/B= 020030. And the song is in 6/8)

VERSE 1

Em
I saw the flame turn
C
Up on a hill burn

G D
I saw the sun's red bring down the blue
Em
I watched a street light
C
Flicker to cold white
G D
I've had a setback in talking to you

CHORUS 1

C G/B D
I know I won't sleep much tonight

C G/B D
There's too many confessions to write

C G/B D
I'm holding myself to the light

Em
'Cause I know
C
As you go
G D/F# Em C D
It's alright…


VERSE 2
Em
I was left holding
C
My hand in the cold wind
G D
I watched you break free, yeah, up and away
Em
But look on the bright side
C
Its comes from the inside
G D
And it's gonna save me from nothing to say

BRIDGE

C G
Go on raise up your glass
C G D/F# Em C 
Go on raise up your glass
G D G D/F# Em C D
To letting the sun in at last

VERSE 3
Em
Up on a hilltop
C
There's a feeling it won't stop
G D
Until I find comfort in watching you go
Em 
And I cling to this slight hope
C
As I'm walking a tight rope
G D
That I'll find a new song after the show

CHORUS 2

C G/B D
I know I won't sleep much tonight
C G/B D
There's too many confessions to write
C G/B D
I'm holding myself to the light
Em
'Cause I know
C
As you go
G D/F# Em C D…
It's alright…




TURN OFF MY HEART (ALBUM VERSION- words Rich Price, music Rich Price/Joe Deveau/Jeff Symonds) 

(notes: you'll notice this is a piano song, and Joe plays some really cool [unusual] voicings. The song sounds nice on guitar too. I also call it 'album version' because there's a live version recorded back when we played this song in Eb. Anyway, Capo 4nd fret, so it's in B)

Intro- G-Bm-C x2

VERSE 1

G Bm C
I've been lost in Los Angeles
G Bm C
Nothing but big blue skies and breasts
G Bm C
Crawling down Sunset on my hands and knees
Em D C
Looking for something to give my heart a rest

VERSE 2

G Bm C
I've been dreaming 'bout your hips again
G Bm C
The way they move when you shake your head
G Bm C
I've been scheming to kiss your lips again
Em D C
So baby why don't you just crawl right back into bed

CHORUS 1

G Bm C G
(cuz) I forgot to turn off my heart
C
Like I said I would
G
And I know I should
Bm C D
This rolling stone'll come to a stop

VERSE 2

G Bm C
I've been sinking in my bed again
G Bm C
I can't sleep babe when we're apart
G Bm C
I've been thinking 'bout what you said again
Em D C
I've gotta make up my mind to let down my guard

CHORUS 2
G Bm C G
(cuz) I forgot to turn off my heart
C
Like I said I would
G
And I know I should
Bm C D
This rolling stone'll come to a stop

OUTRO- G-Bm-C...
