Chilean Fire Barrel

capo on 1
in the radio session John's guitar is slightly sharp

chords are all barred & relative to capo


      D     D6(11)   G      A 
e: ---5------7-------3------5----
B: ---7------7-------3------5----
G: ---7------7-------4------6----
D: ---7------5-------5------7----
A: ---5------5-------5------7----
E: ---5------5-------3------5----

during the verses John slides the chords down a semitone every so often.
if you listen to the song you should be able to pick out the pattern,
but I've tried to indicate it with a [<-] symbol. 
he's also muting the strings to get the rhythm.

INTRO:
D (mute) <- D 
D6 (mute) <- D6


D                 <-    D
Smell of sulfur, cloven hoof
D6                     <-     D6
Birds were gathering on the roof
     D             <-     D   
Faint voices, scratching sounds
    D6                          <-  D
If this keeps up, I may never come down


       D                       (open)      G        A
By the time I snapped out of it, there was nothing left
       D                       (open)      G        A
By the time I snapped out of it, there was nothing left
       D                       (open)      G      A
By the time I snapped out of it, you were long gone
       D                       (open)      G      A
By the time I snapped out of it, you were long gone



Spinning numbers, shepherd songs
Birds singing all the time, all wrong
Aunt Margaret, Cotton-Eyed Joe
They swear they're my friends, but I don't think so


By the time I snapped out of it, there was nothing left
By the time I snapped out of it, there was nothing left
By the time I snapped out of it, you were long gone
By the time I snapped out of it, you were long gone
