Melanie - A Song For Robert Johnson


CAPO: 2nd Fret


INTRO: Am Em D C  Am Em D C  Am


Up on north to Detroit
Em        D
South down Fifty-one to Memphis
 C         Am
A pistol in his hand
                   Em
There's many a good man hidin' in the shadows
   D          C           Am
Just waitin' to give that boy six feet of land



'Little Robert Dusty'
     Em         D
He's been stealin' hearts so easily
      C           Am
You should hear him when he sings
                 Em
Double dealing at the crossroads
        D
Him and his guitar, they say
C        D       Em
Something's been playin' them


CHORUS:
       A      D   Em
Feeling, down in the fingertips

Bold good feeling, woah, oh
        A     G
Like you could die for it
    D     C
And the bird that whistles
    G     D
And the bird that sings
    G       C
And the strong, strong heart beatin'
    G       D   Am
And the stretched out wings


                Em
"Passion be a memory", she says
        D            C       Am
Lookin' at the sheets where he used to lie with her
                 Em
Holdin' a picture, she's livin' again
      D     C         Am
Things she felt when he played for her



'Little Robert Dusty'
     Em         D
He's been stealin' hearts so easily
      C            Am
You should hear him when he sings
                 Em
Double dealing at the crossroads
        D
Him and his guitar, they say
C        D       Em
Something's been playin' them


CHORUS:
       A      D   Em
Feeling, down in the fingertips

Bold good feeling, woah, oh
        A     G
Like you could die for it
    D     C
And the bird that whistles
    G     D
And the bird that sings
    G       C
And the strong, strong heart beatin'
    G       D   Em   A
And the stretched out wings that he made
     Am      D C   Em
Won't so easily, won't so easily fade


  Am            Em
The talk is, he still comes around
D                C           Am
Hey, from Mississippi when your road is dark as night
                    Em
When nothing else gets to your sadness
          D        C         Am
He's pickin' up his guitar and he's feeling it right



'Little Robert Dusty'
     Em         D
And they stole his heart so easily
         C           Am
He was singin', "All my love in vain"

Killin' at the crossroads
  Em       D
But him and his guitar, they say
C         D       Em
Something's still playin' them


CHORUS:  (## fade to end ##)
       A      D   Em
Feeling, down in the fingertips

Bold good feeling, woah, oh
        A     G
Like you could die for it
    D     C
And the bird that whistles
    G     D
And the bird that sings
    G       C
And the strong, strong heart beatin'
    G       D  Em
And the stretched out wings he made
A         D   Em
Down in the fingertips

Bold good, bold good feeling, woah, oh
        A     G
Like you could die for it
    D     C
And the bird that whistles
    G     D
