Blackjack Davey by Bob Dylan


Song: Blackjack Davey
Artist: Bob Dylan
Album: Good As I Been To You

I^Òm usually more of a rock person but this song is one of my favourites. I looked everywhere for a tab of it but couldn^Òt find one. So, I came up with this. The timing is probably off but if you listen to the song it^Òs not that hard to figure out. It^Òs a traditional folk song and wasn^Òt written by Bob, but his version is by far the best.

It^Òs in standard tuning capoed at the 4th fret.

This is repeated for the whole song with very small changes in the walks between chords.

Don^Òt go insane about hitting only exact strings; it sounds great if you strum the whole thing instead of fingerpicking.

This is my first tab so if you have any suggestions, comments, or questions, my e-mail address is [email protected].

See-ya (more tabs to come!)
