Damn These Dreams
By Dierks Bentley
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
Requested by: jbodden on 4/21/2014
Also requested by: daltonwb25

It sounds as if he is in an open tuning or tuned down in Drop D. 
To make it easier for the new players, I left it in standard tuning.

Capo 3

G                  C
I remember hearin' Hank on the radio
    G                       C
The first time it felt like fallin' in love
  G                             C
I bought a cassette, stole some Reds from Dad
    G                      C
And me and ol' Junior just burned it up

      G                        C 
I was hooked like a fish every birthday wish 
    G           C
Was guitars and records
    G                          C
Now honey I know you miss me I feel it when you kiss me
G                         C
Trust me when I say every goodbye hurts

Well, damn these dreams
Playin' my heart just like a guitar string
Pull me away from you and everything I really need
Well, damn these dreams
Chasin' that same old whiskey melody
All up and down these Nashville streets
                       Em                  C
It's hard to look true love in the eye and leave
Well, damn these dreams

Well, I remember hearin' my song on the radio
The first time it felt like some kinda drug
Out there on the road playing show after show
Me and the boys just burnin' it up

It was all fun and games 'til the little ones came
'Cause it makes my heart bleed
When I gotta drive away and listen to 'em say
Hey daddy, why you gotta go, please don't leave


      G                 D/F#  C
Well, damn these dreams

           G                          C  
Well, it's in my heart and it's in my soul
    G                              C
And just like you, I never can let go
      C                   G
These wheels just gotta roll

Cause I remember hearin' Hank on the radio
The first time it felt like fallin' in love

Can you translate this as its played(No CAPO)? I hear some lower chords..but don't know exactly where to start.

Don't hate the capo - it helps people who can't play an F or a Bb play the songs they like until they progress to that point.

That being said, his guitar sounds like it is tuned to an open key, possibly G, which then changes all the fingerings. I will take a closer listen over the weekend and see if I can't come up with something.

Hey man, I'm not hating on the capo.. I live by it.. but I'm just wanting to get a handle on parts of the song that I hear.. I'm not at all knocking your work. BTW.. good stuff!!
