Song About A Man
Song: Song about a man
Artist: Deer Tick
Tabbed: Adam Martynuik

The only trick in this song is that he switches his ring finger on the C chord from the 
position on the fifth string (3rd fret) to the 6th string 3rd fret near the end of each 
of picking for that chord. Listen for changes as he holds certain chords for much 
longer than others.

Below is only an approximate picking pattern, listen to the song and just get a feel for 
is right. I tabbed this off an in store waterloo performance. Here is the link.

Capo 4th fret. Standard Tuning. Thumb and finger picks suggested.


C/G                   F                G          Am              C

D|---2--------------------3--------3------------0--------2---2-- -----2-------2-|

C/G repeated with harp solo

C         F           C
How can a man feel anything
     G                        C/G
When all he ever got was sympathy?
C              F                  C
Take both your hands and put them round my neck
         G                C/G
You're a fool for wanting everything

   Am                           F
It couldn't be much fun being a millionaire to one
Cause a million's just a million of one thing
Am                      F
Cutting to the chase, I suppose there'll be a day
When all your tired hands will be put to shame

I've got a restless old woman standing by my side
She cannot wait for the finer things in life
She waited all this time so I suppose she has the right
But I drank away all the things I could provide

All of that aside I never meant to make her cry
But crying is just the baby inside
The ones that mess around that tend to fuss and bring us down
Tugging at your lips to make you frown


So my grandson will be living with a chip on his shoulder
And God don't listen to his prayers anymore
I hope he understands when he's a little bit older
That I always wished the best for him

Sing a lullaby in the morning when I rise
Sing it 'til I'm far away from here
If this can be my chance to feel it once in my life
Then sing it brother, cause I don't even care

END on harp solo with a bar of the verse chords.
