Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.


Canyon Joe  Joe Purdy

From the album of the same name.
Capo 3rd fret
Chords used:
C: X32010
Em: 022000
F: 133210
G: 320010
Am: X02210
The picking pattern is relatively simple for the most part. There are a couple of minor variations
on the chords used. For example sometimes the intro and going into the verse uses a variation
on the G:
 
 e|----------------------------3---|
 B|-------1----------1-------------|
 G|-----0----0-------0---0---0-----|
 D|---2--------0p2---0-----0-------|
 A|--------------------------------|
 G|-3--------------3---------------|

Sometimes notes are added or taken out, but if you stick to the chord shapes you can't really go wrong. For the verse in general:
[C] [Em] [F] [G]  
 
 e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
 B|-------1-------------0--------------1----------------1---------|
 G|-----0--0--0------0----0--0------2----2---2------0-----0---0---|
 D|----2-2---2-----2--2-----2-----3---3----3------0---0-----0-----|
 A|--3------------------------------------------------------------|
 E|--------------0--------------1---------------3-----------------|

[Am] [F] [C] [Am] [G] [F]  
 
 e|----------------------------------------------------------------3-|
 B|-------1--------------1------------1--------1-------1-------2-----|
 G|-----2---2--2------2----2---2--------0--------2-------0-------3---|
 D|----2-2---2------3---3----3------2--------2-------0--------3------|
 A|--0----------------------------3--------0-------------------------|
 E|---------------1--------------------------------3--------1--------|

Verse:
[C]Well I live in the canyon where the o[Em]ld coyotes howl
They [F]come down from the mountains and the d[G]ogs begin to growl
And they [Am]meet up in the darkness, and they f[F]ight until the death
When the mo[C]rning sun is risi[Am]ng I will bu[G]ry who is left[F]
