Crazy

By: Dave Matthews Band

Transcribed by: Matt Belmont

mattb@tconl.com

 

this is based mainly on the 06/03/96 version of the song, played by a hammered guy by the name of Dave Matthews... i also listened to the 02/06/97 version to compare and for the words, which aren't perfect either...he got better at playing it in the meantime...and changed it subtly. please listen to it for the rhythm, the exact timings would be impossible to tab. and they aren't always the same, just go with what feels appropriate...Dave plays it almost gently the first time, the 2/6/97 show is really more expressive i don't know the exact name of all the chords...sorry. i'll call some of them a ninth chord of some variety, but i think it's actually some sort of "sus4 add9" chord...

 

Part I

C#9 G#9 B A

E---4---------7----5--------------------------------

B---4----4----7----5--------------------------------

G---8----4----7----5--------------------------------

D---6----8----9----7--------------------------------

A---4----6----9----7--------------------------------

E---x----4----7----5--------------------------------

 

mute the C#9 with the end of your first finger, and yes, play the stretch

with your pinkie. all of the barre chords use muting some where, concentrate

on the bottom three notes of the chord.

 

 

*at the begining of the song, the first chord is played twice, also after

the different transitions.

 

Part IA: C#9 G#9 B A

G---888----7(8?)----5(6)?--------------

D---666--8/9--------7------------------

A-4------6/9--------7------------------

E------4--/7--------5------------------

 

*sometimes he adds this note on the upswing to play the A

in there he lets the low E free...

I+

crazy as i may

make my way through this world

 

I

it's for no one but for me to share

one direction i turn in

 

I

cause i am the captain of this ship

eyes, eyelids and kissing lips

 

I

(the) same as it was and should be when you will, you could

 

II

oh, row me back again, you could

row me away, you can

row home us back again

 

IB

same respect for them that turn in chain

 

I+

oh don't you see the strange way

a girl dances away a day,

 

I

oh, even ridicule display

won't stop her feet from moving

 

I

because i am the captain of this ship

eyes, eyelids, and kissing lips

 

I

just the same as it was, may...

 

III

baby, strange

i live a lie(?)

i'm coming back again

IB

 

I

whoa, turn, baby, the lights from your sail

 

I

and turn the spotlight down,or turn it on yourself

 

I

because you are the captain of this ship,

eyes, eyelids, and kissing lips

 

I

just the same as for all i bring and reigning to be

 

IV

why should i

be hypnotized by someone else's lie

IV

why should i

oh take time and pride in what someone else believe

IVb

oh, tell me the warnin', won't you hold on and maybe you, you can

 

II

row me backside on the wind, you can

II

row me away, you do

II

more than i've ever seen before, now you give

 

Ib

a subterrain feel, cold again

 

outro (same as Part III)

the same as it was, and make(?) me believe my head, my own...
