Cotton

tab by Dan - dtrom4 at aol dot com and Rosa

Am*: Go back and forth between x02210 and x02200 (listen to the song for the rhythm)

(When John plays this song live, the Bb in "C  Eb  Bb  C" is replaced with Dm)

C  Bb  Dm F C

C
This song is for the rats
Bb
Who hurled themselves into the ocean
          Dm                             F
When they saw that the explosives in the cargo hold
     C
Were just about to blow

This song is for the soil
That's toxic clear down to the bedrock
Where no thing of consequence can grow
Drop your seeds there, let them go

              Am   C   F  Am
Let them all go
              C   Am   F  Am*
Let 'em all go

This song is for the people
Who tell their families that they're sorry
For things they can't and won't feel sorry for

And once there was a desk
And now it's in a storage locker somewhere
And this song is for the stick pins and the cottons
I left in the top drawer

Let 'em all go
Let 'em all go

C  Eb  Bb  C x4

I wanna sing one for the cars
That are right now headed silent down the highway
And it's dark and there is nobody driving
And something has got to give

I saw you waiting by the roadside
You didn't know that I was watching
Now you know
Let it all go

Let 'em all go
Let it all go

C  Eb  Bb  C x4
