One Hit Wonder 69 (report)
Instead of trying this capo'd on the 6th fret, you can also play it as if it was in G (use the transpose feature in Chordie and tune down 5 semi-tones to get to G) then tune your guitar down a half step. That's likely what Arlo did.
Arlo didn't write this song.
Steve Goodman did.
I'll be [Bb]gone five [C]hundred [D]miles when the day is [G]done. Can someone correct this please?
this is also very good beginning mandolin song
If you want to play along with Arlo's version, you need to Capo the 6th fret. I've noticed that several popular songs (Mr. Bojangles, Sound of Silence, etc.) are played in F# by the original artist, so they are a little difficult for us beginners....
The wording of the song has errors and the chordes have errors.
I may fix this song myself later on when I get the time.
I like this song the rythum is excellent. kinda makes me feel the rythum of the train.
In the chorus, I believe it's Bb (not B)in the last line.
