New Star Song
tabbed by mike/howardfinkel.
minor improvements by john dodson.

Capo 1 (this is just one of the ways i figured out from the album, you can capo it lots of places and it can be different live, im guessing John's tuned down a step or something on the album..)
Can also just do Capo 3 and drop all the chords a full step, i play that sometimes too..

there's an occasional riff on the A chord that you can play whenever you'd like; just a basic hammer and pull a la:

e: |-------0
B: |-------2
G: |-------2
D: |--0h2--2
A: |-----0-0
E: |-------0

be gentle on the high e string; the song is played predominantly on the low spectrum.



A   F#   D    A


F#      D                         A                   F#
i hung pictures of you from every lamp post in town
D      A                                               F#    D
as the humidity climbed into numbers i don't care to repeat
A                                       F#  
the air was heavy and the sky was alive
D                               A                        E
and the pacific starlight train wasn't due in till 11.45

E                     A
i thought about how cold you must be
E                        A
i thought about things i thought that i'd soon be forgetting
E                      A                          D
i thought of you up in canada as the lightning storm lit up
                    A     F#
all downtown redding

D             A                                            F#    
   there were teenagers in mini-trucks coming around every corner
        D                    A                              F#
you can taste the adrenaline, coming out through their skin
  D                    A         
i came to the well-lit doorway of a sheet music store
F#      D                  A                                     E
saw my face in the glass. sat down in the doorway and i settled in.

E                     A
i thought about how cold you must be
E                        A
i thought about things i thought that i'd soon be forgetting
E                       A                            D
i thought of you up in canada as the lightning storm lit up
                    A     F#sus4
all downtown redding
