Mountain Music Alabama
Here's Alabama's "Mountain Music", by Randy Owen
again, if anyone has tab (esp. on the intro and solo parts) please email it
to me, or post it!
[A] [A] [D/A] [D/A] [A] [A] [D/A]
Chorus 1: (a capella until you reach "to a Cajun.."
Oh, [A] play me some mountain [D] music
like [A] grandma and grandpa used to play [D]
Then I'll [A] float on down the riv-[D]er
to a Ca-[E]jun hidea-[A]way.
[A] Drift away like Tom [D] Sawyer
Ride a raft[A] with ol' Huck [D] Finn
Take a nap[A] like Rip Van Winkle,
daze [G] dreamin' a-[E]gain.
Chorus 2--same chords as chorus one for the first 3 lines. Then:
to a Ca-[Bm]jun hidea-[E]way.
Verse 2 (same chords as 1)
Swim across the river
Just to prove that I'm a man
Spend the day bein' lazy
Just bein' nature's friend
Climb a long tall hick'ry
Bend it over, skinnin' cats
Playin' baseball with chert rocks
Usin' sawmill slabs for bats
(also a capella, like first chorus, until you reach "'cause that's where..")
Play some [A] back-home come-on [D] music
that [A] comes from the heart [D]
Play [A] something with lots of feel-[D]in'
'cause that's where [Bm] music has to [E] start.
on last line "...a cajun hideaway aay-aay-aaaiiiaay" - then a drum solo
ensues and the tempo increases--go back to the first chorus for the ending,
but play all of the chords.
