Burlap to Cashmere - Anybody Out There?
Eileen's Song

Alright, I was looking at the last tab of this song and it was way off.  So, I took a 
shot at it and I think it's right (sort of surprising actually) :).  Here you go:

Here are the chords in this song...I don't know if all the names are right but the 
chords are so, yeah.

        A2     Bsus     E     A2/C#   Aadd11  Badd11  E5add11
E - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - -
B - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - -
G - - - 2 - - - 4 - - - 1 - - - 2 - - - 6 - - - 8 - - - 9 - - -
D - - - 2 - - - 4 - - - 2 - - - 2 - - - 7 - - - 9 - - - 9 - - -
A - - - 0 - - - 2 - - - 2 - - - 4 - - - 7 - - - 9 - - - 7 - - -
E - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 0 - - - 5 - - - 7 - - - 0 - - -

First, the last guy to do this tab said he figured out what the intro is but I don't 
have a keyboard to figure it out so I'll take his word for it.  Throughout the rest 
of the song, there're places where, on the cd, it's actually just the keyboard with 
maybe the lead guitar backing up but what I have listed sounds fine when all you have 
is a guitar.  I will work on the lead guitar and the solo soon.  Enjoy!


The keyboard starts the song out with a A, B, E, C#, A, B, E, A.
If you want to do a guitar intro play A2, Bsus, E, A2/C#, A2, Bsus, E, A2/C#, A2/C#...It sounds fine.

First Chorus:
A2                     Bsus
 You have one wing and I have another,

E                   A2/C#
 Seeking shelter like sister and brother.

A2                     Bsus
 Through the winter and through the summer, 

E                    A2/C#
 Like one angel we'll fly far away.

Verse 1:
Aadd11                 Badd1           E5add11               Aadd11
 Hold my hand and we'll make it all right from this hell that we live in.

Aadd11         Badd11         E5add11             Aadd11
 Cross the road until the light comes inside and lives within.

Aadd11           Badd11     E5add11                   Aadd11
 It's a long and lonesome ride when your friends have all gone home.

Aadd11       Badd11        E5add11             Aadd11
 But the roses in your eyes they pull me in so I don't feel alone.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2:
Aadd11           Badd11            E5add11         Aadd11
 Sometimes I just can't help but cry when I think of what we've become.

Aadd11          Badd11          E5add11              Add11
 Like a soldier lost in the night forgetting all where he has come from.

Aadd11             Badd11      E5add11             Aadd11
 But the mud will soon become dry and the sun will rise again.

Aadd11           Badd11    E5add11          Aadd11
 And the shadows in our eyes will fade away down to lower plains.  Cuz...

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus Guitar part (3x) while the guitar solo is going.

Repeat Chorus (2x)
At the end of the second time through, strum the A2/C# chord for two extra measures.

Last Verse:
Aadd11            Badd11   E5add11             Aadd11
 So my friend now this I say I won't leave you hangin' on.

Aadd11             Badd11        E5add11          Aadd11(strum once)
 Hold on tight and don't fly away 'till one angel we have become.

Well, there you have it.  If you have any corrections please let me know at ...Thanks

The chords are not all "add11" chords. To qualify to be an add11 you must add the 11th to the chords. The chords spelled out at the beginning are not add11 chords except maybe the Badd11 (haven't got there in music theory yet). Other than that, it sounds good.

Day before yesterday, I bought "Live at the Bitter End" at a Salvation Army thrift store, and have played it probably ten times since then. I tried out your chords and they sound OK, so I won't mess with them. I will, however, give you the correct names:

A2 [X02200] is really Asus2.
Bsus [X24400] is right, though it's technically Bsus4.
E [022100] is right.
A2/C# [X42200] is right, and could also be called A(add9)/C#.
Aadd11 [577600] is really A2, a.k.a. A(add9).
Badd11 [799800] is right.
E5add11 [079900] is really E5, a.k.a. E(no3).
