Capo - 3rd fret

*This song is mainly in G but it has a specific rhythm Ryan plays that you'll need to get down by playing w/ the song.  Just hold the chords down and pick at the separate strings.

G                                            Em
as a man, i ain't never been much for sunny days

        G
i'm as calm as a fruit stand in new york

             Em
and maybe as strange

          C
when the colors go out of my eyes

                 D
it's usually the change.

     G     C     G      C          G
but damn, sam, i love a woman that rains

G
clear as a bell, and sound as an old engineer

C                                    G
clear as a bell, and sound as an old engineer

with talented breezes that blow off your hat with a sneer.

G                                            Em
as a man, i ain't never been much for talkin to.

       G
i'm as open as a door in her house

                  Em
that leads to her room

             C
and when the color goes out of my eyes

              D
she's usually too

    G     C      G      C            G
but damn, sam, i love a woman that's blue.

(Repeat)

*There's a constant phrase Ryan plays throughout the song.  He hammers the B on the 5th string and then plays the low G, or E, on the 6th.    You can either play the whole chords of the song or just the bass notes of G and Em and play the phrase.  If anyone needs me to tab this out let me know.

corrections?
