Draft Dodger Rag

Phil Ochs

A simply chorded song, but played distinctly by Phil Ochs. The same chord pattern is throughout the entire song. The recording is capoed on the 3rd fret. I'm giving you the position chords here, and you can add the capo, play the same shapes and it'll sound like the record. (use barr chords to get accurate sound)*Note* The recording slides up G and A7, and then slides down in the D (C) G with the (C)(capoed note) actually being single picked string before returning to G. If you listen to the recording you'll hear I'm talking about.
G A7 Oh, I'm just a typical American boy from a typical American town
C D (C)G I believe in God and Senator Dodd and a-keepin' old Castro down A7 And when it came my time to serve I knew "better dead than red" C D (C)G But when I got to my old draft board, buddy, this is what I said:
