Guitar tabs with lyrics

  • Capo on 2nd
Tuning: Drop A chord diagramD MajorD (A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramBB A chord diagramE MajorE)

Townes might actually play this in open D, but this sounds good in drop D.
Tune slightly flat if you want to play along with the album.

The verse repeats for the whole song. Listen for variations in later verses.
Keep your thumb playing quarter notes during the verse and you should be
able to figure out the rest of the picking from there.
