  some easy open chords:

  ------------------
    Am  002210
    Bm  xx4432
    C   032010
    D   x00232
    D7  x00212
    D7  x30232
    Em  022000
    Em7  020000
    G   320003
    G6  320000 aka G + e in soprano; or simply use Em7
    G7  320001
    GM7  320002

  In this arrangement, the gentle soprano melody do - ti - la - ti
  plays on the upper e-string in the G - GM7 - G6 - GM7 sequence
  throughout the piece, and can easily be plucked between strums.

  "Hill Country Rain", Ryko disc RCD 10241, is an awesome album from
  an awesome performer who has never lost his integrity - instead, he
  generally chose to lose either his wife or his sobriety.

  Anther version of this song in C is available at
  Straussfogel. My arrangement puts the piece in G (with the chorus
  in C) and then capo's it up to B-flat major, to match Jerry Jeff.
