The Counting Crows - Omaha guitar tab

Omaha - Counting Crows
From the album - August and Everything After
Tab submitted by: Digs -

There are a few tabs of this song on the web but none
of them have the intro transcribed properly. Although the 
intro is played on an accordian (I think) the tab below 
sounds coorect on the guitar. You will have to finger
pick the intro to get it to sound right.Its a bit tricky
to play but it adds a bit of class to the song when you play it.
The rhythm is easy to pick up if you listen to the song
but if you have any questions e-mail me 

Standard tuning.

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, theres an

able to work out the rest from here!!
