Code: Select all
Asus4     A    Asus4    A

                 F#m     E   D
Too late to feel sorrow,
                 Bm     A    G
Too late to feel pain
                     Bm
Now he’s just an old hobo
A        Asus4      A
Lost out in the rain

(Repeat Patter)


C#                           D             Dsus4  D
He used to be a gambling man just like you
         A
Until he sank so low that there was
E                         Asus4    A
Nothin’ that no one could do


there ya go
great song!

This is a great tune, and great album.
It also lies out nicely on the guitar neck in the Key of G.

yeah man, I have the Old and In the Way song book at home, I think they play with capo on 2nd fret, and in the key of A or something like that. I'll look and put up the chords.
Hey, how do you think jerry would feel about the world today???

I like G because you can play the whole song in open position (and banjo players seem to want to play everything in G).

The only place I play a barre chord is at the end of the line "Just like You...". Our group decided we wanted to play IV>iv there, or C to Cmin in our case (going to the Cmin at the end of the word "You"

The timing on the chord changes is key. Kinda hard to tab it though, just give it a listen.

Solo'ing is fun over those fast chord changes, I especially like the bridge section B7>C>Cmin, which you can repeat a coupla times over to build tension, then release to the G vamp.

The lyrics also paint a noteable picture in my mind, making it easy to remember the words, and a pleasure to sing.
