You Never Know

By: Dave Matthews Band

Transcribed by: Matt Grizzard

mattgrizz@hotmail.com

 

Hey. I just transcribed this. I'd seen various other versions of it on the net and decided to incorporate what I thought was right with the other versions. This is what I came up with If you like what you see or you see problems let me know. The rhythm is kind of tricky and some of this transcription doesn't match up rhythmically, but I think you should be able to figure it out. Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Like breathing just to breathe

that we might find some reason.

the moon follows the car.

There's no one but you sleep.

Hey there the moon is chasing me,
