Here are the chords for "Bishop Mariah", a catchy tune by a great up and
coming band, Elephant Ride.  Since I didn't see anything posted at all
for Elephant Ride, I figured I should rectify the situation!  Enjoy, and
buy their cd "Forget"!

"Bishop Mariah" by Elephant Ride

Each chord is played for one measure. The song starts off with an
accoustic and single vocal.  The song really doesn't have a chorus, just
four verses and a bridge.

When changing from C to G, Dave Martin plays the following little riff:
D |---0/2\0---|

Verse 1:

G    C          G    C

         G         C              G                  C
