Subject: Son Volt, "Windfall"
"Windfall," by Son Volt, from "Trace" CD
capo 2nd fret
opening riff G, C, 4-0, 4-2, 4-0, 5-3, 5-0, 6-3, repeat
Now and then, it keeps you runnin', never seems to die.
Trail spent with fear and not enough livin' on the outside.
Never seem to get far enough, stayin' in between the lines,
Bm C G
Hold on to what you can, waitin for the end, not knowin when,
May the wind take your troubles away
may the wind take your troubles away
Both feet on the floor, two hands on the wheel
May the wind take your troubles away.
(solo with chorus chord progression)
D C G
Try and make it far enough, to the next time zone
Few and far between past the midnight hour,
C G Em
you never feel alone, you're really not alone.
(solo over chorus chords)
Switch it over AM, searchin' for a truer sound
can't recall the call letters, steel guitar and settle down
catchin' an all night station, somewhere in Louisiana
Bm C G C
Sounds like 1963 but for now, sounds like heaven.
chorus plus repeat of first line, solo over remaining chorus chords,
then G-D-C-G-D-G and out.
