Easy Come Easy Go

George Strait

This is a great little known Rory song (aren't they all all, unfortunatley) from his Jynx.
The song begins with a build up using the Am chord and this fill:
E---------------------------| B--------------1------------| G--------------2------------| D---0h2p0------2------------| A---------3~~--0------------| E---------------------------|
Am (Fill) From easy come and easy go, Dm G C (Fill) Now you're not so carefree. Am (Fill) You found the thorn behind the rose, Dm G C (Fill) You took it, oh, so badly.
Chorus: Dm Lost inside yourself, Am G/Am You've gotta break out soon. Dm You've gotta try again Am To hear a brand new tune. G Oh Yeah...
Verse: Once easy come and easy go, You just hear sad notes lately. You used to fly and chase the wind,
I don't know you lately.
Chorus: Don't take it, oh, so bad, Things are gonna change. Don't make it, oh, so sad, The sun will shine again.
(guitar solo)(use Am Pentatonic/C Major Scales - over the verse then chorus chord progressions)
Middle 8:
Please don't lock me out, What's it all about? I'll change it all completely. Won't you let me in, Don't you need a friend? If I can help, just call me.
Verse: I'm easy come and easy go, Don't paint it all so sadly. Before you know the light will shine, Don't burn out completely.
Chorus: Locked inside yourself, You've gotta break out soon. Come on and try again, And hear a different tune
As for the bass guitar, Gerry MacAvoy bassicaly (GEDDIT?) plays the root notes of each but with the odd fill between notes - again play around in the above scales with it - music is all about jamming etc, so you dont have to be too accurate!
And thats about it! its a great chord progression for lead playing especially using the Pentatonic and C Major scales!
So just have a play about and enjoy!
