Down In Mississippi (and Up To No Good) by Sugarland
Album: Twice The Speed Of Life
Interpreted/Transcribed by Gary Willett (12 Mar 2006) Gmwns at aol.com

I recommend playing along with the recording to get the proper
timing.

Intro - Start strumming in (D) 

(D) Friday, payday, lordy got to get away
Had it with the wife thing, living on a shoe string
(G) What's a poor girl got to do just to have some (D) fun 
Well all these years without any help 
Guess what honey clothes just don't wash themselves 
(G) Neither do dishes, neither does the bathroom (D) floor 
So now if (A) anyone asks, not that they would 
I'll be (G) down in Mississippi and (A) up to no (D) good 

(D) No more, what a bore, had enough, I'm out the door 
Headed for a breakdown, had it with the small town 
(G) Gonna call Lisa, gonna call Carla (D) Sue 
Well now, we're gonna let it roll, gonna let it rip 
Gonna get us a nice room down on the strip 
(G) Not that we'll need it, there won't be any sleepin' to-(D)-ni-iii-ight 
So now, if (A) anyone asks, not that they would 
We'll be (G) down in Mississippi and (A) up to no (D) good 

Chorus
We-ee-ll (G) hammer down, here we go 
Runnin' for the riverboat 
(D) All you're gonna see is asses and elbows 
(G) Luck's about to change, for these three queens 
(A) Tired of getting' jokers, deal us up ki-nn-nn-ngs 

Instrumental Break -  Follow pattern of verse that starts 'Snake Eyes'*
(D)        (G)        (D)        (A)        (G)   (A) (D) 

Repeat Chorus

* (D) Snake eyes, roll the dice, double down and hit me twice 
Cashin' the big chips, gonna leave a big tip 
(G) Hotter than a two dollar pistol baby I'm on (D) fi-ii-ire 
So now if (A) anyone asks, and not that they would 
I'll be (G) down in Mississippi and (A) up to no (D) good 

Well now if (A) anyone asks, and not that they would 
I'll be (G) down in Mississippi and (A) up to no (D) good

Yeahahhhhhhh                                        (D) /

Thanks for the input. I have chorded it for the majority of folks who do not have a Baritone guitar.

Thats cool. Its a great tab. I just thought I would throw that out there for anyone who has a spare guitar and would like to try it out. ;-)

Also, it should be noted that you cannot play the intro to this tune without tuning down a whole step. Just an FYI.
