                                       DAY IS DONE ? JOHN PRINE
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Music & Lyrics by John Prine
Album: Lost Dogs and Mixed Blessings (1995)

Tuning: Standard, no capo
Key: A chord diagramG+G

Tabbed by Robert Saunders

CHORDS:

G: 320022
D: X00232
A: X02220
NOTES:

I stumbled upon this song serendipitously when searching for Nick Drake s song of the same name. No weird
tunings or funky chords with John Prine - just three simple chords with the thumb playing the alternating
bass notes throughout.

The verse has exactly the same chords as the intro, although the picking pattern is a bit simpler. I m not
sure I ve got the pattern exactly as John Prine plays it in the verse but I would suggest it s best to mix
it up a bit anyway.

Let me know if you have any suggestions and I will be happy to make corrections.
