J Roddy Walston And The Business chords for Tear jerk

Guitar chords with lyrics

Again, another version best done acoustic. My personal style is simple playing and
emotional singing, and a lot of J Roddy's songs allow for this if you break them down and
play acoustic. Anyways, hope you have fun with this one.
