Sleepyhouse - Blind Melon
Tab by Duncan Koerber 

This song (like most by BM) contains a bunch of guitars, acoustic
and a couple electric. It's HARD to tab for one guitar but I've tried.
At times my tab jumps from the acoustic guitar part to the electric
guitar part because I either can't hear the guitar I was tabbing or the
part being played is very important to the uniqueness of the song
and needs to be played no matter what guitar you are using.

For the verse bits I play the xx0232 D chord and later I use
the x577xx D5 chord in its place. play which ever feels right.
During the verses the acoustic guitar part is picked out but I've just
listed the chords.

Standard tuning...

Chords used:

D - xx0232   D/F#  xx4232    G  320030   F#5 x91111xx  A5  x022xx
F - 133211   D5    x577xx    E5 x799xx   C5  x355xx

D                 D/F#           G    D
No time frame for what I need to do today
            D/F#  G                  D
here at the yellowhouse I think that I'm gonna play with
     D/F#        G             F
some free living lads down the street... away... away
(NOTE: I THINK this next part can be played in the open D xx0232 position with
just a few modifications but I'm not good enough to move around in such
a small space trying to create all the sounds. If you can do it, tab
it out and send it up. It'd be nice to see a different way of doing this
part of the song.. since I swear I can hear the D and F# notes of the
open D chord being played all the while the chord progression is changing.
This could just be the fact that a bunch of guitars are together though.)



D                           D/F#        G                 D
As I feel the moon rise the time that I feel is the right time
            D/F#     G                D
here in our sleepyhouse as I wipe eye bugs away
           D/F#        G      F
the candle flickers at me and says and in my head I sometimes pray
                D5    E5    D5            E5   F#5  E5  D5   C5  A5  C5  D5
are you feeling fine?          as I was as a little child
                       D5             E5  D5     E5  F#5  E5  D5 C5 A5 C5 D5
and I'm feeling better when I'm high yeah as shining on a little unity.

(not sure about that ending)

D                                         D/F#           G
The mistakes that I've made no they don't seem to bother me
D                                              D/F#        G
and I sure as hell don't feel like I've missed any kind of train
D                                       D/F#            G
if I could only show you how I feel you wouldn't bother me
F                                           D
maybe you would see why we don't mind being blind
