Subject: TAB: House of Dreams (Blue Rodeo)

Here's one Blue Rodeo tune that I have been playing for a while.  I haven't
seen it posted here or in the Nevada archive.  It is a vintage Jim Cuddy love
ballad.  I hope everything is clear (I'm a virgin poster).

When playing the Esus in the intro and throughout, hammer the A note (on the G
string).  I tried to indicate that with an "h" in the Intro TAB.  Just email
me if anyone needs help deciphering.

   B B     A A      E         Esus   E E   Esus  E      F#m ...


Can't stand the sight of  myself
                                       E       Esus E Esus E
Lying in bed all day with the curtains drawn   (as in intro)
Staring at the clock on the window ledge
                                       E      Esus E Esus E
The angry words you said come back so strong

      BRIDGE 1:
                Abm         A                              A  Abm
      Sometimes love quits, Oh, when the pieces don't fit
      F#m                                      E
      And suddenly all your world falls to the floor
                    Abm       A               A  Abm
      Then all your wild days all fall away
      F#m                Abm           A      B
      You can't see much point in them anymore

               E        B
      In this house of dreams
                Dbm                A
      I let you walk like a ghost unseen
      A    Abm    F#m
      Girl on the day you left
      B          A       E      Esus E Esus E
      Out walked my everything ...

I must have thought you'd always be here
I never even noticed when the changes came one day
Seems one minute you were standing close
I turned around again and girl you were far away

      BRIDGE 2:

      And every plan we made, I just let them fade
      And pile up on the floor beside the bed
      Now you're gone away but your memory stays
      I sit here thinking of the things I never said


INSTRUMENTAL (play chords from the verse)

      BRIDGE 3:

      Sometimes love quits when the pieces don't fit
      And suddenly all your world falls to the floor
      Now you're gone away, but your memory stays
      I hear your voice behind every single door


      E           E7      A      Am      E
      ... everything ...
