Black Pear Tree

-tabbed by mike/howardfinkel

First, the tab of the EP version w/ piano + Kaki singing.
Then I'm going to give what I'm almost sure JD played live.

A                 D                       E
I dug a hole and filled it up with compost
A                                   D     E
Rested on the cool grass for a minute
A                 D                   E
I saw the future in a dream last night
F#m    A                    D        E
       There’s nothing in it

A    F#m   D
A    F#m   D

I set the sapling in the hole
Started gently tamping down the dirt
I saw the future in a dream last night
Somebody’s gonna get hurt, somebody’s gonna get hurt
F#m    A                   D     A
         I hope it’s not me
F#m        A               E         D
But I suspect it’s going to have to be

A    F#m   D
A    F#m   D

I dug my heels in for the winter
And I waited for the snow
But something’s stuck up in the clouds
Something was stuck up there
It couldn’t let go

And when its time came I could see it happen
Blossoms black and sweet as Texas crude
I saw the future flowering like a ruptured vessel
Somebody’s gonna get screwed
It won’t be me
Someday I am going to walk out of here free
John's live version
