On to the next verses-same chords.


I am up a sycamore
Looking through the leaves
A sinner of some position
Who in the world can this heart healer be
This magical physician
Enter the multitudes
In Exxon blue
In radiation rose
Misery
Now you tell me
Who you gonna get to do the dirty work
When all the slaves are free
Who're you gonna get
Enter the multitudes
The walking wounded
They come to this diver of the heart
of the multitudes
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done

Oh climb down climb down he says to me
From the middle of unrest
They think is light is squandered
But he sees a stray in the wilderness
And I see how far I've wandered
Enter the multitudes
In Exxon blue
In radiation rose
Apathy
Now you tell me
Who you gonna get to do the dirty work
When all the slaves are free?
Who're you gonna get
Enter the multitudes
The walking wounded
They come to this diver of the heart
of the multitudes
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done

Oh all around the marketplace
The buzzing of the flies
The buzzing and the stinging
Divinely barren
And wickedly wise
The killer nails are ringing
Enter the multitudes
In Exxon blue
In radiation rose
Tragedy
Now you tell me
Who you gonna get to do the dirty work
When all the slaves are free?
Who're you gonna get

In this case of the word "harmonic" appearing in the above transcription, it means that you lightly touch the strings above the indicated fret, right over the metal fret, with one hand, while struming the strings with your other hand. This creates ringing tones that are harmonics of the base tones of the strings. These are softer sounds, and different tones than what you would get if you would press down hard on the strings as you would for making a chord in the normal way. You will have to experiment. On some guitars, it is easier to make these tones than on others, but generally, you can make such tones most easily at the 5th, 7th, and 12th frets - it should be possible to get tones at these locations with the right technique. I think I also lift the hand over the fret away from the strings onces the tones have been activated by the other hand in order to prolong the ringing. Hope this helps.
