Doesn't this sound like Trooper's 1978 gem?
"We're here for a good time
Not a long time (not a long time)
So have a good time
The sun can't shine everyday"
Oh well, it's catchy as hell.

You write beautiful accurate charts and are my favourite, thank you. Learning "Here For A Good Time" now. I'm curious to know why you charted it from a capo on 4th instead of 2nd which is where he plays it from. It seems to sound better on the 2nd capo, especially the intro. Also, country tabs used to transpose songs for you too-is that still there? Can't find it.

Thanks again & keep em coming!

The key has to be in E with the 2nd capo. I just feel playing the tune easier in D than in E.
