                    JOHN THE REVELATOR
                    (loosely based on)
           CURTIS STIGERS and THE FOREST RANGERS



    

NOTE: ALL CHORDS are played as BARRE CHORDS. I also
      slide from one chord to the next instead of
      just moving or picking my hand up to go from
      one chord to another. (PLEASE READ NOTES AT
      THE BOTTOM OF THIS TAB).

      THIS TAB ALTHOUGH VERY PLAYABLE TO THE VERSION 
      STATED IS NOWHERE NEAR HOW THEY ACTUALLY PLAY IT.
      THIS IS MY INTERPRETATION ONLY !!

ALL IMPROVISED SOLOING CAN BE PLAYED AT THE 3rd 5th and 7th FRETS.

NOTE: The FILL above is NOT part of the song and the CHORDS 
      throughout are only my interpretation of the song. There are
      2 guitars as well as a slide guitar playing along. To me the
      instrument that really makes this song is the VOICE of the 
      singer. Everything else can be truely ad libbed in my opinion.
      You could almost basically get by just playing the D chord and
      a Dm.... DO NOT BE AFRAID TO IMPROVISE !!!!!!

      Please do NOT rate this tab if you are comparing it to the 
      actual recording. I watched at least three videos of this
      group playing the song and they never come close to playing
      it the same way twice. The one constant is the VOICE...PERIOD!!

      I just put this up as an example to perhaps get you thinking
      on your own in case you wanted to try it.

Who's that writin'? John the Revelator
Who's that writin'? John the Revelator
Who's that writin'? John the Revelator

You know God walked down in the cool of the day
Called Adam by his name
But he refused to answer
Because he's naked and ashamed

Tell me who's that writin'? John the Revelator
Who's that writin'? John the Revelator
Who's that writin'? John the Revelator

You know Christ had twelve apostles
And three he led away
He said, "Watch with me one hour,
'Till I go yonder and pray."

Tell me who's that writin'? John the Revelator
Who's that writin'? John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin'? John the Revelator

He said, "Go tell my disciples
To meet me in Galilee."

Tell me who's that writin'? John the Revelator

Tell me who's that writin'? John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin'? John the Revelator
Who's that writin'? John the Revelator

Tell me who's that writin'? John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin'? John the Revelator
Who's that writin'? John the Revelator
