Chorus
C.....Bb....C....F
C.....Bb....C....F

Dont ask why I have made up my mind
I dont need to go If it don't work
Just way too much of the
same old stuff can kill you
faster than your worth
And on this note I've been
Drivin this boat ever since
I could reach It's bell I've
Worked the docks the dams & locks
Now Im empty as this hull I
[C] Will leave this town just the
[Bb] way It was found
[C] Blood red pile
[F] Of ore
[C] I will leave whats left to
[Bb] my drinkin friends
[C] cause Im goin to Bal -
[F] -timore....

I've watched that door
So many times before
Waitin for a lady to come in
Just another ol' salt
With his tongue hangin' out
Lookin for a glass to fall in.

Capo on 3

[C/G]Catalina there's a [F]lot of things to [C]say
[Am]But none of them [F]feel like, stopping by [C]today
[C/G]Have a couple [F]hours now to [C]kill
[Am]But that sounds so [F]inviting, it's not to say you [C]will

[G]Is that all[F] your [C] things? [G]Is that all [F] you [C]bring?
[Am]When you're up in Minnesota,
do you[F] have someone to hold you when it's [C]cold

I know this afternoon will never last
but even looking downward, I try to set it back
You're the best thing about the coast
I know there's other reasons, but I like this one the most


Is that all your things? Is that all you're gonna bring?
When you're up in Minnesota,
do you have someone to hold you when it's cold

Break C / F / C / Am / G / F / C

I'll be going back the way I came
It'll probably take an hour with the darkness and the rain
By then you'll be above the Great Divide
You can't really see it, but it's somewhere in the night

Is that all your things? Is that all you're gonna bring?
When you're up in Minnesota,
do you have someone to hold you when you're cold

Catalina there's a lot of things to say

Raised on bittersweet
Standing in the shaken street
Never gonna get too far

Get so down
Is it love or can’t you tell
Got a name and it suits you well
Crooked heart

The part in the background at the end is just the 14th and 15th fret on the 1st and 2nd strings respectively

This may come out with screwy format, but you'll get the idea.

Dim Light (Bellwether)

From: "Home Late" (2001 - Rustbelt Records)
Posted by Nortwoods and transcribed by Unknown 

CAPO 1: (key of Db) Just a walk back from C to G then eventually F


A {C}dim light {C/B}afternoon
{Am}dusk in a {G}box

At a {C}half lit {C/B}half wit
{Am}home for the {G}lost

And a (C)two on (C/B)two cold
(Am)heart of a(G)girl in a (F)car

Was a slow start daydream off of a ride to a
Place with a cul de sac cartoon goodbye and a
Quick wave one take coffin of all that we’ve left {add a quick G}

{F}I know {G}clouds are pictures of {C}people in {F}parades

{C}Look at what they’ve {F}made

{C}Look at what they’ve {F}made {G}us do

{verse chords}

A curbside fellow is offering gifts to a
Place flown away and a place for the rest
Mind that squeals firetruck wheels and its home

In a dim light afternoon dusk in a box
At a half lit half wit home for the lost
Too slow too quick check on just where we are

{F}I know {G}clouds are pictures of {C}people in {F}parades

{C}Look at what they’ve {F}made

{C}Look at what they’ve {F}made {G}us do

{verse chords}
La da da……etc…

Lyrics Update:

A dim light afternoon desk in a box
at a half-lit, half-wit home for the lost
and a too warm, too cold, heart of a girl in a car.

Had a slow start, daydream, off of a ride
to a place with a cul de sac, cartoon good-bye
and quick wave, one take, coffin of all that was left.

I know clouds are pictures of people in parades
Look at what they made,
look at what they made us do

A curbside fellow is offering guests
a place for to wait and a place for to rest
a mind that squeals, a firetruck reels its horn.

At a dimlight afternoon desk in a box
at a half-lit, half-wit home for the lost
at a too slow, too quick, check on just where we are.

 

 

Home Late (Bellwether)

From: "Home Late" (2001 - Rustbelt Records)
Posted by Nortwoods and transcribed by Unknown  


CAPO 2: (Key of E)
The “A” chord sounds best if you keep your finger on the “d” note on the second string.
Play around with it, it may even work better as an “A7” with the “d” added.

D
In day its,
A
still are fools like
G
My hopes are
A
empty galleons
D
Carried away by a
A
thin air midnight
G
My ghosts are
A
good companions

G A D A
I’m gonna leave the stars outside
G A D A
I’m gonna leave the stars outside
G
Just in case you,
F#/d
come home late you,
Em
Got some way
D
to see

(back to verse chords)

In house there’s so much racket
My dreams are anti-aircraft
Flying low so you can’t track it
Now sleep is just somewhere to go


I’m gonna leave the stars outside
I’m gonna leave the stars outside
Just in case you, come home late you,
Got some way to see

Second-Hand Love (Bellwether)

From: "Bellwether" (2000 - Rustbelt Records)
Posted by Nortwoods and transcribed by Chris Harden 

Intro: E F#m A E X 2

[E] She got a second-hand love,
You get it on the [F#m] run.
Well she [A] keeps you guessing,
when she leaves you [E] alone.
[E] You can bide your time,
every time you [F#m] go well
I ain't [A] that hard to find,
everybody [E] knows.

Chorus:

[B] I'm walking down the [A] streets [G#m] a-[E]gain,
[B] A little closer to the [A] one [G#m] your [E] on,
[B] If its looking like a [A] dead [G#m] end [E] run,
[B] Just means that I'm [A] missing [E] you.

Solo (over intro chords twice)

[E] Leaning on a lonesome heart,
Maybe just as [F#m] well.
If your [A] looking for the words to fall,
find them where they [E] fell.
[E] Darling are you out there somewhere,
making up your [F#m] mind?
There's [A] something you borrowed,
something you left [E] behind.

Chorus

Solo (over intro chords 3 times)



Note:
This is basically a copy of Marks version
The CAPO is just on a different fret
And I think you play G#m instead
Of A/G#

This is Marks Version

Sugar Moon (Bellwether)

From: "Home Late" (2001 - Rustbelt Recordst)
Posted by Nortwoods and transcribed by Chris Darden 

F...Gm....Bb....F
Or
Capo 3 D....Em...G....D

Repeat

Lets go down where the wild woods grow
There's a place I know, ....nobody knows
Our footsteps didn't make no sound
First you fall A little, then you're tumblin' down

Lets go down where the green grass grows
Out in the fields and nobody knows
You said maybe It's a little to soon
Then we ran away together on Sugar Moon

Instru:

Never seen a love that was so pale blue
I never seen a love half as true
Darlin' Don't it feel like there aint no end
You can make believe,..... I can pretend


Note:
There is something going on, at the end of
The last sentense of each verse where the
timing goes from 4/4 to 2/2.
I dont know, but the chord
changes come a little faster on the last
word of the last verse. Then they slow
back down

The Lake (Bellwether)

From: "Home Late" (2001 - Rustbelt Records)
Posted by Nortwoods and transcribed by Mike Berry

Here’s my take on this Bellwether song. Some guessing on the lyrics. The [A] is frequently hammered on the D string.

Capo 3

[A]Sometimes the water
At end of November
Gets too cold to drink
Out of the [Bm]lake [D]
Out of the [A]lake

Ask those around her
They say they forgive her
Seem to make sense of mistakes
Out of the [Bm]lake [D]
Out of the [A]lake

[A]Last time they [A/G#]saw him
He [A/F#]wasn’t a [A/G#]phantom
[A]Just had a [A/G#]living to [A/F#]make [A]
Out of the [Bm]lake [D]
Out of the [A]lake

‘Bout the [F#m]time that found him
[E]Four years passed him
[A]Nobody [A/G#]lasted that [D]long
[F#m]No one could phase him
The [E]ice was a prison
[A]Nights you could [A/G#]hear the moon’s [D]call (???)

[A] [A/G#] [A/F#] [A/G#] X 2
[Bm] [D] [A] [A/G#] [A/F#] [A/G#]

[A]Those that were [A/G#]closest
They [A/F#]kept good [A/G#]distance
[A]Turned when they [A/G#]saw what was [A/F#]dragged [A/G#]
Out of the [Bm]lake [D]
Out of the [A]lake

Some times the water
At the end of November
Gets too cold to drink
Out of the [Bm]lake [D]
Out of the [A]lake
