GALILEO (Emily Saliers)
-----------------------
[Amy plays this in E, capoed up 1 to F. Emily plays it in C with a
capo on the fifth fret and her guitar tuned to DADGBC. I'm going to
write down Emily's chords, because they're easier and more interesting.
If you want to play Amy's chords, you can figure them out; since it's
in E, there are a lot of barre chords.]
[Actually, when I play this, I usually just play Emily's chords, but
in standard tuning so I don't put my high E in danger of breaking when
I tune back up. If you play in standard tuning, play the verse as
C G F G7-G6; it's pretty easy to play the G7 - G6 part, as long as
you play G as 320003 with your pinky on the high E string. Just play
Em(C)/B as Em, and play D13 as D or D11 (554030).]
[Each chord is half a measure, except "G7 - G6" is half a measure _total_.]
C Gsus F6(9) G7 - G6 C Gsus F6(9) G7 - G6
[intro]
C Gsus F6(9) G7 - G6
Galileo's head was on the block
C Gsus F6(9) G7 - G6
The crime was looking up the truth
C Gsus F6(9) G7 - G6
And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
Am Em(C)/B F6(9) Gsus
I try to trace them to my youth
And then you had to bring up reincarnation
Over a couple of beers the other night
And now I'm serving time for mistakes
Made by another in another lifetime
C Gsus F6(9) Gsus
How long till my soul gets it right? Can any human
C Gsus F6(9) Gsus
being ever reach that kind of light? I call on the
Am Em(C)/B D13 D13
resting soul of Galileo
F6(9) Gsus C Gsus F6(9) Gsus
King of night vision, king of insight
Then I think about my fear of motion
Which I never could explain
Some other fool across the ocean years ago
Must have crashed his little airplane
How long till my soul gets it right?
Can any human being ever reach that kind of light?
I call on the resting soul of Galileo
F6(9) Gsus C C
King of night vision, king of insight
Am Am F/A F/A
I'm not making a joke, you know me
F#dim/A F#dim/A F/A F/A
I take every - thing so seriously
Am Am F/A F/A
If we wait for the time till all souls get it right
Gsus F6(9) Gsus F6(9)
Then at least I know there'll be no nuclear annihilation
C Gsus F6(9) Gsus
in my lifetime; I'm still not right
C Gsus F6(9) G7 - G6 C Gsus F6(9) G7 - G6
[guitar solo]
C Gsus F6(9) G7 - G6 Am Em(C)/B D13 D13
[guitar solo]
F6(9) Gsus C Gsus F6(9) Gsus C Gsus F6(9) Gsus
[guitar solo]
I offer thanks to those before me
That's all I've got to say
'Cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
Now I have to pay
But then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
To let the next life off the hook
She'll say, "look what I had to overcome from my last life
I think I'll write a book"
How long till my soul gets it right?
Can any human being ever reach the highest light?
Except for the resting soul... (God rest his soul)
F6(9) Gsus C Gsus F6(9) Gsus
King of night vision, king of insight
C Gsus F6(9) Gsus
How long till my soul gets it right...
C Gsus F6(9) Gsus
How long till I meet that highest light...
C Gsus F6(9) Gsus C.
How long?
CHORDS (tuning is DADGBC):
C: x32010 Gsus: 5x0030 F6(9): 3x0010 G7: 5x0035 G6: 5x0034
Am: x02210 Em(C)/B: x22000* D13: 009900 F/A: x03210 F#dim/A: x04210
*this should probably be called Cmaj7/B, but in the context, it sounds more
like E minor, so I'm calling it "E minor with an added C (and B bass)."
