The Be Good Tanyas - Littlest Birds

By axehappy - axehappy at countrytabs.com


The rhythm for this song is awkward to get at first, but if you play
along with the recording a few times, you'll find that it is really
easy once you get into it.

       C                              G            C
Well I feel like an old hobo, I'm sad lonesome and blue,
      F           C          G              C
I was fair as the summer day now the summer days are through.
    F            C          G      C
You pass through places and places pass through you,
        F         C               G             C         F
But you carry 'em with you on the soles of your travellin' 
  C  G  C  F  C  G  C  F  C  G
Shoes.


       C           F        C           G
Well I love you so dearly I love you so clearly
  C        F         C          G
I wake you up in the mornin' so early, 
        C          F       C         G
Just to tell you I got the wanderin' blues.
C    F       C         G
   I got the wanderin' blues,
    C         F          C        G           C     F    C    G  C  F  C  
And I'm gonna quit these ramblin' ways one of these days soon,
    G    C
And I'll sing :


    F        C              G         C
The littlest birds sing the prettiest songs.
    F        C              G         C
The littlest birds sing the prettiest songs.
    F        C              G         C
The littlest birds sing the prettiest songs.
    F        C              G         C
The littlest birds sing the prettiest songs.

          C          F       C       G         C
Well it's times like these I feel so small and wild 
         F        C              G         C
Like the ramblin' footsteps of a wanderin' child.
F       C             G        C
And i'm lonesome as a lonesome whippoorwill,
F            C            G            C
Singin these blues with a warble and a trill.
F       C       G       C
But i'm not too blue to fly,
F      C       G       C
No i'm not too blue to fly 'cause



    F        C              G         C

Well I love you so dearly I love you so fearlessly,

Oh I left my baby on a pretty blue train,
      C       F            C            G
And I sang my songs to the cold and the rain.
C       F       C         G
  But I had the wanderin' blues,
C       F          C         G

I don't care if the sun don't shine,

I don't care if nothin' is mine.
F       C           G            C
I don't care if I'm nervous with you,
F          C             G     C 
I'll do my lovin' in the wintertime.
