Show Chords


Capo 2. 

The C/B is essentially just used to notate a walkup from the Am to a C. 
All you have to do is keep your pointer finger planted and move your middle 
finger up to the B on the A string (2nd fret on the A string). I tried 
to make the timing on those as close as I could. And the G/F# is just a 
walkdown from a G chord to an Em chord where all you have to do is lift 
your middle finger on the G and move your pointer finger up to the F# on
 the E string (2nd fret on the E string). 

Intro, Outro, and all instrumentals follow verse chord pattern. Enjoy!

G         D         Am      C/B      C
Back when you, well when you were my darlin
G        D       Am     C/B    C
I didn't mind to lose a little sleep and
G        D       Am   C/B    C
I didn't mind to do a little walkin
G      D         Am         C/B    C
Reputation never meant that much to me

Em       D         C            G    G/F#
How do I find that old familiar feelin 
Em           D             C          G  G/F#
The one that carried me so many years ago
Em      D           C            G   G/F#
Bottles dominos and seven up and seagrams
Em          D                C
Things were simple then just movin nice and slow

        Am        C/B   C
Aint it strange
        Am        C/B   C
aint it strange
G     D       Am  C/B    C            G     D          Am  C/B  C
I had no clue I'd be the boy who your momma warned you about
G     D       Am  C/B    C            G     D          Am  C/B  C
I had no clue I'd be the boy who your momma warned you about

Well that old scene was always comin to me
I see you standin w/ your husband and your child
You're a picture of strength and grace and beauty
Me I'm just a fool in the supermarket aisle

No hello would surely end up awkward
I never had a knack for talkin anyway
You're not the kind for bendin over backwards
Stop and turn my shoppin cart around and walk away


Ain't it strange how well I knew you back when I was 17
Lovin you was easy babe but I was just a child
These days you ain't nothing just an insterstate daydream
Folks were sleepin and you were runnin wild

Am                C/B      C
And I still do my share of sleepin on the floor
Am           C/B             C
Not sure if anybody knows me anymore

Very good tab.. I never knew the / meant to walkup/walkdown believe it or not. Keep Up the good work
-jonnboy89 | 6/28/2011
spot on. great tab. great band

@JonnBoy89: The '/' does not mean 'walkdown' or 'walkup'. It means 'alternate bass'; i.e. C/B means a C chord, but use a base note of B.

I believe the lyrics are "Well, I know hello would surely end up awkward"...Felker kind of runs it together there where it's hard to distinguish.

It's also "Smile and turn my shoppin' cart around and walk away" and "Folks were sleepin' and we were runnin' wild".
