Sign of the Crow

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 Bm G (can be played once, twice, or not at all)

      D                              A
These roses are the pleasures of the flesh
      Bm                                      G
These ones here they are the pleasures of the spirit
    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

        D                          A
And the dust clouds bloomed in the dark
        Bm                          G
And the face gazed up from the frame
D                             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
                A              
This generation asks for a sign
D                 G
 It isn't gonna get one

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
        D                    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
                A              
This generation asks for a sign
D                 G
 It isn't gonna get one
