Athens County  Jonathan Edwards

I personally love this song and really the entire album is great, most
people know "Sunshine" and "Lay around the Shanty" but my favorite song on
the album is probably this on, a nice little tune called "Athens County" You
it that you can listen to. Anyway, i couldn't find the chords to this song
anywhere on the internet, so i had to come up with them myself, they may not
be entirely accurate but they sound good, and are pretty close if they're
not right
I play it in the key of G (because i have a G harmonica), the record is
actually in G#, so throw a capo on the 1st fret and BINGO, you're there!

There you go, great song, if you know a banjo player and a guy who can play
harmonica, you can really make this sound good
