Simple Guitar Tabs – Omaha (Duritz)

This is intended for guitarists and other musicians, so it’s easy to glance at the music and see what you need to see, without any clutter.  I also re-align the word wraps, to fix the phrasing against the rhythm guitar chords.

This will look quite different than anything else you’ll find if you search the web for tabs or chords for this song. It should be quite correct. In the case of this song, there were repeated A chords and wrapping mistakes that essentially hide the basic chord patterns.

Behold the chord patterns! Enjoy!

The image below will open up to a full screen complete song.

Have fun! Please feel free to comment!

This image is the chords-fixed version. Below are the lyrics alone.

Omaha  – Counting Crows

Start tearing the old man down, run past the heather and down to the old road
Start turning the grain into the ground! Roll a new leaf over!
In the middle of the night there’s an old man treading around in the gathered rain
Well mister IF you want to walk on water, could you drop a line my way?

Omaha! Somewhere in middle America!
Get right to the heart of matters! It’s the heart that matters more!
– I think you’d better turn your ticket in
And get your money back at the door!

Start threading a needle, brush past the shuttle that slides through the cold room
Start turning the wool across the wire, roll a new life over!
In the middle of the night there’s an old man threading his toes through a bucket of rain
Hey mister YOU don’t want to walk on water! You’re only going to walk all over me!

Omaha! Somewhere in middle America!
Get right to the heart of matters! It’s the heart that matters more
– I think you’d better turn your ticket in
And get your money back at the door!

Na Na Na Na … Na-na-na, yeah, yeah, yeah (x4)
Na Na Na … Na-na-na … etc.

Start running the banner down, drop past the color come up through the summer rain
Start turning the girl into the ground. Roll a new love over!
In the middle of the day there’s a young man rolling around in the earth and rain
Hey mister IF you’re gonna walk on water, you know you’re only gonna walk all over me! F#m C#m E D – A

Omaha! Somewhere in middle America! (chorus)(x2)

(out:)

Ahhhh-huh … said …
Omaha … Sunday morning … I’m coming home today!
