THE BLUES MAN
Alan Jackson (or Hank Jr.)

Key of G

Intro (finger-picking)
        
He's just a (G) singer, a natural born guitar (Am7) ringer  
Kind of a (D) clinger to sad old (G) songs         
He's not a (C) walk be(G)hind her, he's a new note (Am7) finder
But his name's a (D) reminder of a blues man that's already (G) gone             
So he started drinkin' - took some things that messed up his (Am7) thinkin'         
He was surely (D) sinkin' when she came a(G)long                
He was alone in the (G) spotlight, not too much (Am7) left in sight                 
She changed all that (D) one night, when she sang him this (G) song

Hey baby I (G) love you, hey baby I (Am7) need you           
Hey baby you (D) ain't got to prove to me                      
You're some kind of macho (G) man
You've wasted so much of your live                      
Runnin' through the (Am7) dark nights                  
Let me shine a little (D) love light down on that blues (G) man
                
He got so sick from (G) speed, all the things they said he was (Am7) needin'
If he was to keep on (D) pleasin' all of his (G) fans                      
He got cuffed on dirt (G) roads he got sued over (Am7) no shows                      
She came and took (D) all that old load                  
Down off that blues (G) man, and he sang
          
Hey baby I (G) love you too, hey baby I (Am7) need you              
Hey baby I (D) do get tired  of this travelin' (G) band
I'm over 40 years old now, nights would be (Am7) cold now                 
If you hadn't (D) stuck it out with this blues (G) man

I'm over 40 years old now, nights would be (Am7) cold now                 
If you hadn't (D) stuck it out with this blues (G) man

Solo

Chords.........

I use different positioning on this song
This sounds the best, if you are playing it acoustically

When you say "the key of G", do you mean tune your guiter to open G or just that the song is in the key of G? I am new at guitar.

The key of G, normal tuned guitar (EADGBE), ibn the key or G, meaning chords GCD usually as main chords, solo in Gmajor pentatonic or G major.

THIS TAB IS WRONG...YOU NEED TO GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD...IF YOU CAN SING THIS TUNE THEN YOU'D KNOW ITS NOT RITE.....
-TIMG | 10/19/2004
Dont be mean. It's a good basic tab of the song for starters to get the feel of the song. Personally I put the Capo on 1, but its still fine and sounds good.
-brivers | 11/16/2004
The only chord your missing for this song is C and you have one chord wrong its a Am not a Am7 thats played.
-middleg1996 | 1/24/2005
its a good tab.. awesome job man

I don't know why folks have to bust chops here. The chords are right on. I'm not sure what key Alan did it in , But Hank Jr. does it in G. I capo at 2 and do it in A. When the song is fingerpicked properly it does go to Am but the 7th. is added on the second beat. Just listen to Hanks version and it's easy to pick up. The D also goes to a 7th before going back to G. It's hard to reflect every little nuance of a song without taking up three pages. Credit to the poster. Good job.
