Grace Potter And The Nocturnals Tabs

Big White Gate

1 versions

TAB

            Song is played guitar tuned to open E (E,B,E,g#,b,e) for slide parts, but can be 
played tuned normaly.

My favorite GPN song.  Alot of soul put into it.  Hope you enjoy.

Verses:
E  (Hammer on the A note on g string)
My body's acing from laying in this bed
I went singing in the rain and the cold got to my head
I don't know who's paying i just know what the doctor said
84 years of a sinning life and in the morning i'll be dead

That all the folks up in heaven might like to hear me sing Same as Verse 1 and Chorus 1 I sang to my children Before they strayed so far I sang for my lovers Or a nickel in a tip jar I never knew jesus I never read the good book But on my day of dying I'm giving life a second look Saint peter won't you open up the big white gate Cause i heard about forgiveness and i hope it ain't too late I ain't no holy roller but you go tell your king That all the folks up in heaven might like to hear me sing Slide Guitar solo: Played over chorus progression in B It's coming on time now My body's getting cold I've got no will i've got no prayer My story's all been told I'm ready for the land of fire But i'd love to see the land of gold So nurse bring me my guitar One more song before i go Saint peter won't you open up the big white gate Cause i heard about forgiveness and i hope it ain't too late I ain't no holy roller but you go tell your king That all the folks up in heaven might like to hear me sing Pretty much it.
