General Rules On Chord Charts

Intro
Code: Select all
G                             C   G
Once upon a time there was an engineer
G                       A       D
Drove a locomotive both far and near
  G                               C
Accompanied by a monkey who would sit on a stool
G             A             D          G
Watchin' everything the engineer would move


One day the engineer wanted a bite to eat
Left the monkey sittin' on the driver's seat
The monkey pulled the draw, the locomotive jumped the gun
And did ninety miles an hour down the main line run

G               C        G
Big locomotive, right on time
G                      A        D
Big locomotive, comin' down the line
G                      C
Big locomotive, number ninety-nine
G            A           D       G
Left the engineer with a worried mind

The engineer called up the dispatcher on the phone
Tell him all about his locomotive was gone
Get on the wire, switch operator to write
'Cause the monkey's got the main line sewn up tight

Switch operator got the message in time
Said, "There's a north bound livin' on the same main line
Open up the switch, I'm gonna let him through the hole
'Cause the monkey's got the locomotive under control!"

Intro
(^) Slide Up  () Slide Down  (h) Hammer On  (p) Pull Off  (b) Bend

E---3-3-0---0-----------0---2---3---------------------------
B----------3-------------2---3---0---------------------------
G-------------4-2-0-----2---2---0---------------------------
D--------------------2---2---0---0---------------------------
A----------------------0---------2---------------------------
E---------------------------------3---------------------------
Im assuming this is what used to be on this site chord wise cuz the intro matches. just thought Id post it so there would be a complete version available, because before this all that was on the guitar tab here at least recently was the intro.

FYI, you need to use the Code button when you post if you want your tab to line up properly. It'll put brackets around your tab like this:

[ code]paste tab here[/code]

Then it will line up:

That is helpful man. Both of you are. Thanks for the complete version of this enardi. Try to finish other songs that are not yet completed. Thanks again.
