PDT 1992
Lines: 53
Here is one of the requested songs by Rosanne. These are words and chords only
Rosanne Cash
Key of A/D (the turnaround modulates)
Key of B/E (if capo'd 2 frets like the record)
intro D / / A / / /
verse1 In a l[A]ittle cabaret in a South Texas b[E]order town
Sat a [E]boy and his guitar and the people came from [A]all around
[(E)]And [(F#)(Ab)]all the g[A]irls from there to A[E]ustin
Were s[E]lippin' 'way from home and puttin' jewelry in [A]hock
[(E)(F#)]To take [(Ab)]the t[A]rip, to go and l[E]isten
To the l[E]ittle dark-haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top [A]box
[(A)(B)]And he [(C#)]would p[D]lay
turnaround D / / / A D / / A (repeat)
verse2 Well, he couldn't ride or wrangle, and he never cared to make a dime
But give him his guitar, and he'd be happy all the time
And all the girls from nine to ninety
Were snapping fingers, tapping toes, and begging him don't stop
And hypnotized and fascinated
By the little dark-haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top box
And he would play
verse3 Then one day he was gone, and no one ever saw him 'round
He vanished like the breeze, they forgot him in the little town
But all the girls still dreamed about him
And hung around the cabaret until the doors were locked
And then one day on the 'Hit Parade'
Was a little dark-haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top box
And he would play
I'll try to post tab for the turnaround lick next week. I'm new at this.
I have the other Rosanne songs you requested coming. Plus 'Hold On' from
_Rythym and Romance_.
