Black Flag Blues chords – Adam Carroll

 Adam Carroll - Black Flag Blues



 F Am 
Black flag blues, black flag blues
 G C 
Holes in the sidewalk, holes in my shoes
 F Am 
Davy Jones been tightening the screws
 G C 
Paint another picture of my black flag blues
 G C 
Pain another picture of my black flag blues


Four on the floor, and two in the seat
Gilbert Roland and Jean Lafitte
Rattlesnake preachers and doomsday signs
Shaking that dice with my hobo mind


Black flag blues, black flag blues
Holes in the sidewalk, holes in my shoes
Davy Jones been tightening the screws
Paint another picture of my black flag blues
Pain another picture of my black flag blues

Well I knew a girl out in Kentucky
She rolled pecan logs down in Stucky's
Long in the tooth with a sideways grin
Getting kinda worried about the shape I'm in


You left me for the artful-dodger
On a motorcycle called the Jolly Roger
I'm all washed up in New Orleans
My head feels like a pinball machine


Well salty dogs chew-in on some grizzle
Captain Kid and his penny whistle
One by land two by sea
Same old lone down blues to me


Black flag blues, black flag blues
Holes in the sidewalk, holes in my shoes
Davy Jones been tightening the screws
Paint another picture of my black flag blues
Pain another picture of my black flag blues 

Blues Plus Booze chords – Stonewall Jackson

 C G7 C 
Just last night my love said she was leaving

                       G7 C C7 
I sat right there and cried until the dawn

      F C 
Then booze was added to the pain and heartbreak

                         G7 C 
The combination equaled trouble from then on

 
            F C 
Blues plus booze means I lose

       F C 
Not a right combination for anyone to choose

   F C 
Nobody knows the feeling till he's been in my shoes

            F C 
Blues plus booze means I lose 

 
                  G7 C 
Tonight I'm fast forgetting how she left me

                        G7 C C7 
But tomorrow pain will come on twice as strong

   F C 
I order stronger booze and louder music

                    G7 C 
Like I'm happy for tonight but not for long

 
            F C 
Blues plus booze means I lose

       F C 
Not a right combination for anyone to choose

   F C 
Nobody knows the feeling till he's been in my shoes

            F C 
Blues plus booze means I lose

Work at tenant farming, Jacob is my name
I work at tenant farming, Jacob is my name
I spent half my life getting blisters
From cutting sugar cane


Got me a son named Jimmy, got a wife named Marie

I'm getting old working in the sun all day
But she done alright by me


She said Jimmy needs some schooling, so he doesn't end up like you
Said, Jimmy needs some schooling, so he doesn't end up like you
But buying his books on the money I make
It's a damn hard thing to do


Mr. Jackson wants to see me, so he called me in at four
Mr. Jackson wants to see me, but he called me in at four
Said, I got me combine, Jacob
I don't need you anymore


INSTRUMENTAL: 


Well, I got a brother named Virgil, he sells crack cocaine

He got rich a long time ago
And he left that sugar cane


Virgil said hey Jacob, I'll make you a deal

I need you behind the wheel


We were headed south on a two lane road called highway 1-9-0
We were headed south on a two-lane road called highway 1-9-0
Mr. trooper pulled us over outside of town
He said, step out nice and slow


Mr. Trooper shot poor Virgil, when he tried to run
Mr. Trooper shot poor Virgil, when tried to run
But I killed Mr. Trooper
With Virgil's old shotgun


Down in Louisiana, got nothing left to lose
Down in Louisiana, got nothing left to lose
Now I'm going to Angola
With these ole Caine River Blues

INTRO:   E 


VERSE:
E -(MUTED/MUFFLED)
I came down from Newcastle town                     E
To the part of the south coast that I love the most.
E -(MUTED/MUFFLED)
I was stretched out tight after a couple of nights          E
Going crazy in Glasgow, I think you all know how that goes.
 A 
I needed some peace, somewhere to stand still,            
Through the Cotswold hills down to Portland Bill,
          E 
And to charge up my batteries for next weekend,             
Where I'd be cruising through Cardiff and ending up in Southend.
     B 
So don't go stopping and putting down roots
          A-(MUTED/MUFFLED)                        E
Or your shoes won't fit in your travelling boots.


VERSE:
E -(MUTED/MUFFLED)
I met a guy from Cornwall who'd never left the county        E    
I told him about the big smoke, I don't think he believed me.
E -(MUTED/MUFFLED)
I told him about the scene along the south coast to Kent,                E
Across the estuary to East Anglia, and then I think he knew what I meant.
    A 
A man is bored of life if he's bored of these islands,
All creation is here from Hythe to the Highlands.
  E 
The Black Country witnessed my basest predations
And the road up to Hull is paved with wicked intentions.
     B 
So don't go stopping and putting down roots
          A-(MUTED/MUFFLED)                       E
Or your shoes won't fit in your travelling boots.

VERSE:
     A 
Go mad in Manchester, wind down in Winchester, 
Roaming the home counties, where the parties are free,
   E 
Circling London like dirt round a storm drain and
Somewhere near Holborn's the heart of the beast.
  B 
Don't go stopping and putting down roots

Intro

 A7 A 
I wake up in the early when I see my day walk in
I wake up in the early when I start to begin
I drink up my coffee to drive dreams away
        E7 A 
And I think about leaving but remain for the day

 A E7 
Oh, glory but I just stay blind
  A E7   
Think about my loving, yes, some of the time

  D7/F# A7 
I want to take it easy
          D7/F# A7 
Ain't it hard like they say
           B7 E7 
But I can play

And most any morning, most any morning
    D           B*             E A7  
I like to be born into my guitar day
 
      A/G B7/F#     
They say it's all butterflies
  A/G B7/F# 
Don't let your dreams get in your eyes
     D                B*
But Orpheus made the sunrise
            E A7 
'Cause he knew how to play

                    D7/F# A7 
Well, she sings so fadey, I called my guitar lady
          E7 A7 
She's a noted writer, I just can't seem to let her be
               D7/F# A7 
And she is my flower, I call her my easy hour
          E7 A7 
She's a low special, and baby that's enough for me


     D7/F# A7 
And it's all right, you're in the graveyard now
     D7/F# A7 
Well it's all right, you're in the graveyard now

        D7/F# A7 
You may weep, you may moan
        D7/F# A7 
You may pass your life so gay
      A7 
But lucky in life, I swear sometimes
  B7 E7 
Surely going to have to meet your leaving day

                           D7/F#                   
Well, she sings like the seashore
                               A7 
Tonight I don't ride on your seesaw
         E7 A7 
I will call up the angels if they have a little word to say

                             D7/F#   
And I think I'll try cloud walking
                                 A7 
It's just my face you see here talking
                    E7 
And it's just the guitar singing
                                A7 
And I have to let her have her way


  E7 D7/F# A7

Inner City Blues chords – Sixto Rodriguez

 From the  Cold Fact    |    : Doug McCabe

This song is played in the key of E (with a capo on the second fret). This is the 
version from the Cold Fact Album. The live version is slightly different.

The introduction starts with down strums on the E chord and then an intermittent E & Em 
before changing to A.

The A has a riff using your little finger on the E string on the 2nd  & 3rd frets. This 
riff occurs several times throughout the song.

Intro:
 E ,  Em ,  A  Etc.


Verse:
 E A 
Going down a dirty inner city side road, I plotted
 E A 
Madness passed me by, she smiled hi, I nodded
 E B5 E 
Looked up as the sky began to cry, she shot it
 E A E 
Meet a girl from Dearborn, early six o-clock this morn, a cold fact
 A E 
Asked about her bag, suburbia's such a drag, wont go back


Chorus:
 G D A E 
'Cos Papa don't allow no new ideas round here
 G D A E 
And now he sees the news, but the pictures not too clear
 A E 
Mama, Papa, stop, treasure what you got; soon you may be caught without it
 A E 
The curfews set for eight; will it ever all be straight? I doubt it.


Verse:
 E A E 
Seven jealous fools playing by her rules, can't believe her
 A E 
He feels so in between, can't break the scene, it would grieve her
 E B5 A 
And that's the reason why he must cry, he'll never leave her.
 E A E 
Crooked children, yellow chalk writing on the concrete walk, their King died
 A E 
Drinking from a Judas cup, looking down but seeing up, sweet red wine


Chorus:
 G D A E 
'Cos Papa don't allow no new ideas round here
 G D A E 
And now you hear the music, but the words don't sound too clear.
 A E 
Mama, Papa, stop. Treasure what you got. Soon you may be caught without it
 A E 
The curfews set for eight will it ever all be straight? I doubt it.


Outro:
 E A 
Going down a dusty, Georgian side road, I wonder
 E B5 E 
The wind splashed in my face, can smell a trace, of thunder.
