Moonshiner  Cat Power


Moonshiner by Cat Power

Chan's take on the classic folk song, from 'Moon Pix' (1998). Again, as with a
great many of her songs, just two chords arpeggiated (picked). Not going to bother
tabbing this, but if you play around with the chords, you should be able to figure
out the picking pattern (note that she plays some of the open strings as well). I
figured out how to play this by ear in about 2 minutes, which, coming from me,
means it's fairly simple. I believe she bends the B string while picking A minor
before alternating to the E minor chord.
Tuning: Standard
[Am]I've been a [Em]moonshiner
[Am]For seventeen [Em]long years
[Am]I spend all my [Em]money on whiskey and beer
[Am]I go to [Em]some hollow
[Am]And set up my holy, [Em]holy still
[Am]If drinking do not [Em]kill me
[Am]Then I don't know [Em]what will
[Am]I go to some [Em]bar room
[Am]And drink with [Em]my friends
[Am]See if women and men would [Em]come to follow
[Am]To see what I [Em]might spend
[Am]God bless them handsome [Em]men
[Am]I wish they was [Em]mine
[Am]Their breath is [Em]as sweet as
[Am]The dew on the holy, [Em]holy vine
[Am]You're already in hell
[Em]You're already in hell
I wish we could [Am]go to hell[Em]
[Am]When the bottle gets [Em]empty,
[Am]Then life ain't worth the [Em]drown
