"Phoenix" by Dan Fogelberg 1979

Tuning "double dropped D" = DADGBD

This song is done in several sections that I've tried to label in order to get

in all the parts without writing each one out complete. I hope it's not too

confusing.

Intro and main riff:

D |---0--0--0---------|

B |---3--3--3---------|

G |---2--2--2---------|

D |---0--0--0---------|

A |---0--3--0---3-0---|

D |0--0--0--0-------3-|

No more sor---row, got to carry on

Found deep water, 'fore I even learned to swim

Found deep water, 'fore I even learned to swim

Never thought I'd see the sun again

Once I was a, once I was a man alone

Once I was a, once I was a man alone

Now I've found a heart to call my home

You almost had me, old lady

You almost tied me down good

You played the lady-in-waiting

I waited as long as I could

(repeat tab above w/no lyrics)

Too long the songs have been silent

Too long the strings have been stilled

I never knew what you wanted

And I guess that I never will
