They're not even close.

DEAL

A C#7

Since it costs a lot to win,

F#m E D7 Ao

And even more to lose,

A A G# G F#

You and me bound to spend some time

B D

Wond'rin' what to choose.

A C#7

Goes to show, you don't ever know,

F#m E D7 Ao

Watch each card you play and play it slow,

A G D

Wait until that deal come round,

A G D A

Don't you let that deal go down, no, no.

HALFSTEP

C E7

On the day when I was born

F Am

Daddy sat down and cried.

F C G

I had the mark just as plain as day;

D7 G7

Which could not be denied.

C E7

They say that Cain caught Abel

F Am

Rollin' loaded dice;

F C G

Ace of Spades behind his ear

F E7

And him not thinkin' twice.

Am

Halfstep, Mississippi uptown toodeloo

F C G

Hello, baby, I'm gone, goodbye

F C G

Half a cup of Rock and Rye.

F C G

Farewell to you old Southern skies

Am E7

I'm on my way, on my way.

Am Am/maj7 Am7 D9

F Dm B7 E7

Am Am/maj7 Am7 D9

F Am D7 G7

A D A D

Across the Rio Grandeeo, Across the lazy river.

I'd go with half-step' date=' but they aren't the same song or even almost the same song. [/quote']

Find me 2 GD tunes that are more similar!? (and Women R Smarter/Iko doesn't count)

I Know You Rider and Morning Dew have the same chord progressions, the only differences being tempo and the way "Morning Dew" has AABB verses instead of the AAB verses of "I Know You Rider".

Aloha,

Brad

As for Geoffs other question, Althea and Throwing Stones.

I read somewhere that Robert Hunter thought Deal and Franklin's Tower were essentially the same song.

How about the guitar solo in Throwing Stones versus the guitar intro to Samson & Delilah? They sound pretty similar to me.
