-All verses ​the same I think:+=====Sign of the Crow=====
  
-D A Bm G+<​code>​ 
 +John has played this slightly differently from show to show. There is no "​right"​ way. That said in the recorded 
 +version the D is played as x0023x (with emphasis on the A string) and the other chords in the main progression are 
 +also played as power chords more or less (to play along, tune your guitar down a half step). 
 + 
 +Riff (for the D to G instrumentals):​ 
 + 
 +-22222222xx222222 
 +-33333333xx333333 ...into the G chord 
 +-2222222242222222 
 +-0000000000000000

 +Intro:

 + 
 +      D                              A
 These roses are the pleasures of the flesh These roses are the pleasures of the flesh
 +      Bm                                      G
 These ones here they are the pleasures of the spirit These ones here they are the pleasures of the spirit
-Tucked ​behind a pornographic picture in a frame+    D                            A 
 +And tucked ​behind a pornographic picture in a frame 
 +    Bm                                      G
 The troops found the pierced heart and they all gathered near it The troops found the pierced heart and they all gathered near it
  
-Inbetween verses, play: +Asus4 D D
-G+
  
-Chorus: +        D                          A 
-D G +And the dust clouds bloomed in the dark 
-Of the several things you have to do today+        ​Bm ​                         ​G 
 +And the face gazed up from the frame 
 +                            A 
 +Roomful of French troops in a Franciscan abbey 
 +Bm                            ​G 
 +History does not recall their names 
 + 
 +                               ​A ​           D 
 +Of the several things ​that you have to do today 
 +               G
 You're gonna regret one You're gonna regret one

 This generation asks for a sign This generation asks for a sign
-It isn't gonna get one+D                 G 
 + It isn't gonna get one
  
-Then back to that Dand repeat.+D G D G 
 + 
 +D                                    A 
 +Berthe then took the pictures ​to the priest 
 +        Bm                                    G 
 +And the priest fell on his face and pawed the floor 
 +        ​                   A 
 +And the story lived on for a decade or two 
 +    Bm                        G 
 +But no one really knows it anymore 
 + 
 +D Asus4 D D 
 + 
 +        D                            A 
 +But the blessed heart is seen in the airbrush 
 +        Bm                              G 
 +And the blessed heart is beating on the wind 
 +        D                                 A 
 +And the bodies of the faithful stacked by dozens by the roadsides 
 +Bm                        G 
 +Stripped ​and scourged and skinned 
 + 
 +                               ​A ​           D 
 +Of the several things that you have to do today 
 +               G 
 +You're gonna regret one

 +D                 G 
 + It isn't gonna get one
  
-This is how John played it in the Ships and Dips YouTube video anyway... I'll be the annoying guy and say this is my first tab so I think it won't be perfect, John seems to be doing some kind of hammering on that I haven'​t got to grips with at the start, but other than I think it's fairly close. Thanks to Mike (green_vii) for helping out!+D Asus4 D D
