as a result of my last posting of *say goodbye* i got a lovely little flame
from someone claiming they were from dave's front office, all pissy about
the details of the posting.  as i don't want to come across as a *loser poser*
as he pointed out that i most certainly did, let me make all the standard
disclaimers that i simply assumed last time.  (1) for those who were unaware
(?), dave plays live and his lyrics and tab changes by the evening.  this is
NOT the definitive version of the song.  (2) dave's great talent is in
improvisation, so play around with what you see below.  try open chords, try
standard chords, barre chords, pick parts, strum parts... anything.  chances
are he's played it that way at least one night.

Subject: Dave Matthews Band - "Lie In Our Graves"
Dave Matthews Band
"Lie In Our Graves"
From the album "Crash"
Words by Dave Matthews
Music by Dave Matthews, Carter Beauford, Stefan Lessard, Leroi 
Moore, and Boyd Tinsley
Transcribed by Tim Barnett
First off, this just is all about what Dave is known for, 
straight jammin!!  This song was kind of easy to figure out because of 
the repetition of the intro.  The rest of the song is just playing 
chords slow then fast.  I want to dedicate this song to Corey and J.D. 
who got me into Dave Matthews Band.  
Figure 1 (Intro)

1st verse:
When I step into the light, my arms are open wide.
Oh, when I step into the light, my eyes searching wildly.
Would you not like to be sittin' on top of the world with your legs 
hangin' free?
Would you not like to be 
okay, okay, okay.

When i'm walikin' by the water, splish splash, me and you takin' a bath.
Oh, when I'm walkin' by the water,  
Comes up through my toes to my ankles to my head to my soul I'm blown 
away.

3rd verse: Fig.1  7 and a half xs
I can't believe that we would lie in our graves wondering if we had 
spend our living days well.
I can't believe that we would lie in our graves dreaming of things that 
we might have been.
Would you not like to be?
I can't believe that you would not like to be  okay, okay, okay, okay, 
okay, okay.
Well, that's all of this song.  If I got anything wrong please 
e-mail me at procura@aye.net.  I am open to any corrections and also 
Dave songs.  Also I would like to say thanks and give love to my 
beautiful girlfriend, Janelle, because she is why I play guitar.  Thanks 
and enjoy!!!!!!!!!
