Pam Tillis chords for Maybe it was memphis

Guitar chords

MAYBE IT WAS MEMPHIS (by Michael Anderson; recorded by Pam Tillis)
------------------------------------------------------------------
[Actually in A; capo 2.]
[Each chord is half a measure.]
[The little melody thing in the intro (and elsewhere) is just A chord diagramG+G and Gsus4;
 do it by using your index finger to switch back and forth quickly from
 3x0003 to 320013.  I marked it in the chords as G*.]

GUITAR SOLO TAB:

* It’s probably actually played in A chord diagramA augmentedA with no capo, but I find it easier in G.
  (I got this by translating some piano sheet music into tablature.)
* ¨tri¨ denotes sixteenth-note triplets.  ¨triplets¨ are eighth triplets.
* The marks below the tab lines are timing; they’re mostly accurate.
* An equal sign (=) is a hammer-on or pull-off.  When there wasn’t room for
  the marker, I put the numbers and equal signs in parentheses below the tab.
  I did that so that 1=0 wouldn’t be confused with the number 10 (ten).
