Everything I Do (Whiskeytown)

From: "Stranger's Almanac" (1998 - Outpost)
Posted by Ironman and transcribed by Unknown 

This song is tricky as it has horns,a guitar lead with little of a rhythm section. As always,I'm sat here with an acoustic guitar ( with no horn section ).. What I did was find a little rhythm riff which works quite nicely. The riff I play is simply based around an E F#m change. Strumming an E for two beats, letting the F#m ring out. The Asterisk in the lyrics indicates the point you start playing the little riff. But Someone suggested ( rightly ) that rather than an F#m it should be x44200 ( low to high strings ), this chord is an F#m7add11

The song basically is the same verse/chorus 3 times, except the final time there is no "says I-I-I-I miss you" at the end.

The intro is a Steve Cropper-esque line that is hammering on the 3rd from the 2nd (5th string) under the top of an E bar chord at the 9th fret (A shape bar chord) and then doing the same under an open A chord at the 2nd fret (hammering on the 3rd, of A from the 2nd)


She's got dia[*]monds in her eyes
That she [*]likes to hide
Seek and [*]you will find
The hide and seeking kind[*]
She's got [*]rings wrapped around her [*]precious things
What the [*]day brings, Oh its no [*]surprise


Don't you [A]ask me how I'm doing when [Am]everything I do says miss [*]you[*]

Excuse Me If I Break My Own Heart Tonight (Whiskeytown)

From: "Faithless Street" (1996 - Outpost)
Posted by Ironman and transcribed by Unknown 

Notes: Originally the C9 in the Chorus was a plain C, then someone suggested playing C9(x32033) instead of the C. I agreed, it sounded good on the chorus, but I decided to leave the verses as a plain C, you may choose to play those as C9's as well. He also sent in the following banjo riff after each Em7 in the verse...

e-0--0--0--0-
b-3--1--0--0- right into the G
g----------2-


INTRO:
[G G Em7 Em7 G G Em7 Em7]

Well, ex[G]cuse me if I break my own [Em7]heart
It's [G]mine from the finish I guess
[G] It's mine from the [Em7]start
Situ[C]ation just don't seem so goddamned [G]smart
Situ[C]ation is tearing me a[D]part

So you'll have to ex[G]cuse me if I break my own [Em7]heart

[G G Em7 Em7]

Well, excuse me if I break my own heart tonight
Some things are born too strong
Have to learn how to fight
Situation keeps me drinking every goddamned day and night
Situation don't seem so right

So ex[G]cuse me if I break my own heart to[Em7]night
Well, ex[G]cuse me if I break my own heart to[Em7]night
After all it's [C9]mine, after all it's [G]mine
After all it's [C9]mine
Can I [D]have it back sometime?

So if the rain falls down on your Mississippi talent
Your eyes drift easy in the mighty
If the rain falls down on your Mississippi talent
Your eye's drifting right(?)
You run the road, but your diary entry reads blank
Is this some sort of joke to you?
Is this some sort of joke to you?

So ex[G]cuse me if I break my own heart to[Em7]night
Well, ex[G]cuse me if I break my own heart to[Em7]night
After all it's [C9]mine, after all it's [G]mine
After all it's [C9]mine
Can I [D]have it back sometime?

Factory Girl (Whiskeytown)

From: "Faithless Street" (1996 - Outpost)
Posted by Ironman and transcribed by Unknown

Note: there is a little sort of picked riff played often throughout the song its based on A G D movement, I haven't worked it out exactly ( I haven't got the patience, or the skill ) I tend to pick around an A to A7 change, then a G to Gm change, finishing with a D releasing the top E string (Dsus2) and hammering back on the second fret. It changes a little on repetition but is basically the same progression. For the basis of the transcription we will call it "Riff 1"

I think that riff might be sliding the 3rd string from the 2nd to 4th fret, then hitting the 2nd string on the third fret, then (maybe) pulling of the 2nd fret to open string on the third, fourth, and maybe fifth string, or going straight into the "C" or "G" (root note) chord from the fourth string.


[G]So [Em]factory girl, she [A]listens for the [G]sound of her daddy's [Em]engine
'til the [A]work bell sounds and [D]she leaves town

Riff 1 twice

[G]Know the summers [Em]here are [A]hot, all she [G]seems to do is [Em]work and sleep
and [A]wish that she was [D]still with you

Riff 1 twice

[C]No you [G]don't know where she [D]is
Lying [C]in her mother's [G]bed
Or [C]who she's sleeping [G]with

Riff 1 x 4, then G Em A G Em A D

Riff 1 x 4 or 5 times, all this over a harmonica.

[G]All the [Em]kids would laugh at [A]her
Because [G]she seemed so sweet and [Em]pure
I [A7]took this shift be[D]cause of her

Riff 1 x 2

[G]No I've [Em]never said a [A]word
I once [G]smiled and looked at [Em]her
'til the [A]shift boss said now get [D]back to work

Riff 1 x 4

[C]Now I [G]don't know where she [D]is
Or [C]who's bed she's sleeping [G]in
Or [C]what man she's sleeping [G]with

Finish with picking over a D G repeated change

Houses On The Hill (Whiskeytown)

From: "Stranger's Almanac" (1998 - Outpost)
Posted by Ironman and transcribed by Unknown 

INTRO:
[C F G G C F G G]

VERSE ONE:
Well, I [C]found a bunch of letters
They were [F]written for the fellow
Who [G]broke your momma's heart
And the [C]envelope folds [F]smelled of her ancient per[G]fume
[F]I'll bet she didn't [G]know
How to re[C]spond before the [C/B]blankets of [Am]snow
[Am/G]Caught him out [F]wandering a[G]lone
With no place to [C]go [F C]

CHORUS I:
[F] There were stars in the [G]sky
There were [C]houses on the [C/B]hill
There were [Am]bottles and [Am/G]pills
That were [F]easy to buy to [G]keep her warm
From the [C]oncoming storm [F C]

VERSE TWO:
Well, I found them in the northwest corner of the attic
In a box labeled "Tinsel and Lights"
Didn't know what I was looking for
Maybe just a blanket or artifacts
Eisenhower sent him to war
He kept her picture in his pocket that was closest to his heart
And when he hit shore, it must have been a target for the gunner-men

CHORUS II:
There were stars in the sky
There were bunkers in the hill
And there were caskets to fill where he would lie
Shrouded in the red, white & blue with the stripes

repeat CHORUS I

Jacksonville Skyline (Whiskeytown)

From: "Pneumonia" (2001 - Lost Highway)
Posted by Nortwoods and transcribed by J. Bolger 

Capo on 4
Intro just hangs on G, hammering on the A string.

Verse:
G
Well the banks of the river went through my hometown
G C
Born on the dirt roads, and I scraped my knees
G
Well they packed the roads eventually
G C
With neon signs and car dealerships and diners

Chorus:
D Emin C
The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends
D Emin C D G
I saw the pretty women as I walked through town

Verses 2&3:

I moved away soon as I turned sixteen
Figured I was old enough to go and work a job
Well I flooded down mainstreet pools(?) of carlights
Overcame me wishin' I was still back home

Jacksonville's a city with a hopeless streetlight
Seems like your lucky if it ever changes red to green
I was born in abundance of inherited sadness
With a 50 cent picture frame bought at a five and dime

Final chorus(chords same as the first):

I ended up a soldier on the weekend
Looking for a vacancy I wasn't able to find
Somewhere the night sky hangs like a blanket
I shoot it with my capgun just to make it
seem like stars

D 320003

U 320033

and then add some picking on top of that for variation. And there are other
places where that 320003, 330003, 320033 mix add stuff played in different
order.

Midway Park (Whiskeytown)

Posted by Ironman and transcribed by Unknown 

Notes: Not sure what the correct name for the Dsus4/E chord is, its similar to an Asus4 but seems to have the fingering xx2233. Which is basically the Dsus4 chord, but with an E as it lowest (bass) note..

Intro and verse
You anchor your pointer finger and ring finger on the Dsus2 chord (this is the regular D chord with the high E string open). You use your middle finger to play the bass notes in this order...(F# G B A) all while picking the higher strings you have anchored.

To begin, strum this and hold: 000010
Pull-on and strum to make an Am: 002210

Throughout verses, I use a bastardized pull-off and picking pattern and this terrible Am pull-on thing to fit the beat and words of the song.

Am
I slept in our room, and I swore? (Last fall?)
And I slept with our ghosts painting the walls
And our happiness hung there like a mistake or a light
Truly you're gone
Wandering helplessly now we are We are
You You were gone

You You're gone You You're gone You're gone

Top Dollar (Whiskeytown)

From: "Faithless Street" (1996 - Outpost)
Posted by Ironman and transcribed by Unknown 

C G C G (play this G into the verse)
Well we tried to (C)find something
Something to hold on to
I thought it was you 'cause I'm (G)sick and tired
Of (C)trying to make something
Something out of nothing
I guess that you were bluffing
Now I (G)think I'm losing my (Am)mind
This pain in my (C)heart
Was it (F)worth the price?
This pain in my (Am)heart
Was it (C)worth the time that I (G)wasted on (F)you?
You're giving me the (G)top dollar blues
C G C G
And I gave you it (C)all, all
All that I could give you
You've taken what I've given
And (G)thrown it all (C)away
Like it was nothing
Never meant nothing
Now I'm left with nothing
What an (G)awful price I've (Am)paid
This pain in my (C)heart
Was it (F)worth the price?
This pain in my (Am)heart
Was it (C)worth the time I (G)wasted on (F)you?
You're giving me the (G)top dollar blues
C G C G
(Am)I've bet all my (C)money and that's how it (F)goes
You ran a good (Am)race
But you (C)lost just by a (G)nose
It's (F)true
Baby, you're giving me the (G)top dollar blues (C)
The top dollar (G)blues
I gave you it (C)all, all
All that I could give you
The top dollar (G)blues (C)
Top dollar blues (G)
C G

Notes:
Just an easy trick to make it sound like the album: lift your birdy finger off and on the 4th string while strumming, then on the second time lift your birdy on and off and use your pinky to hit the 4string 3 fret.
in other word on the fourth string while strumming: 2-0-2-2-2-0-2-3-2-0
