 Here is my transcription for Dave Matthews Grey Street - From the
 album "Busted Stuff". This transcription is self-explanatory as most
 of my transcriptions are. You will have to work at getting the
 rhythm right, & especially keeping it going while singing - not an
 easy task - but then again, so many of Dave's songs are that way.
 Have fun - As always . . . Ian C.T. vom Saal 8/2002

 [Verse1]
 Oh look at how she listens
 She says nothing of what she thinks
 She just goes stumbling through her memories
 Staring out on to Grey Street
 
 She thinks, Hey,
 How did I come to this?
 I dream myself a thousand times around the world,
 But I can't get out of this place
 
 {sot}
 -------------------------------
 {eot}
 [Chorus] Bm A
 There's an emptiness inside her
 And she'd do an[D/F#]ything to fill i[G]t in
 But all the [Bm]colors mix[A] together - to grey [Intro/Verse Chords]
 And it breaks her heart
 
 {sot}
 -------------------------------
 {eot}
 [Verse2]
 How she wishes it was different
 She prays to God most every night
 And though she swears he doesn't listen
 There's still a hope in her he might
 
 She says, I pray
 But they fall on deaf ears,
 Am I supposed to take it all myself?
 To get out of this place
 
 {sot}
 ---------------------------
 {eot}
 [Chorus]
 There's loneliness inside her
 And she'd do anything to fill it in
 And though it's red blood bleeding from her now
 It feels like cold blue ice in her heart
 When all the colors mix together - to grey [intro]
 And it breaks her heart
 
 {sot}
 ----------------------------------------
 {eot}
 [Verse3]
 There's a stranger speaks outside her door
 Says take what you can from your dreams
 Make them as real as anything
 It'd take the work out of the courage
 
 But she says, Please
 There's a crazy man that's creeping outside my door,
 I live on the corner of Grey Street, and the end of the world
 
 {sot}
 ---------------------------------------------------
 {eot}
 [Chorus]
 There's an emptiness inside her
 And she'd do anything to fill it in
 And though it's red blood bleeding from her now
 It's more like cold blue ice in her heart
 She feels like kicking out all the windows
 And setting fire to this life
 She could change everything about her using colors bold and bright
 But all the colors mix together - to grey [intro]
 And it breaks her heart
 It breaks her heart
 To grey
