Howard Hughes Blues  John Hartford

Tab by Arejay156
I noticed John Hartford tabs are really hard to find so here is H.H. Blues.
I?m not sure how correct it is, but it sounds pretty good to me.
Also, some of the lyrics are questionable, but this should be close.
Intro:
[C] [F] [Em] [Am] [F] [C] [Am] [F] [C] [G] [C]  
[C]I wanna sing you a song about Vegas town and p[F]oor old Howard Hughes
[Em]Locked up there in his [Am]hotel suite t[F]rying to find his s[C]hoes
W[Am]ell he?s got so much to[F] lose?
[C]Old Howard Hu[G]ghes and all his bl[C]ues
[C]His Nurses and his chauffeurs they s[F]tand around and sigh
[Em]Watch the door and [Am]wait on him wha[F]tever?s on his mi[C]nd
An[Am]d that?s a hell of a lot [F]to do?
[C]To guard old Howard Hu[G]ghes and all his b[C]lues
Chorus:
[C]And if he didn?t have a nickel
[F]If he didn?t have a dime
[Em]He could do whatever he [Am]damn well please
[F]He could do it all the t[C]ime
[Em]But success is just a [Am]mess of overdue n[F]ews (?) ?
[C]For old Howard Hug[G]hes and all his bl[C]ues
[C]He?s always in the papers he?s al[F]ways on the news
[Em]But no one knows whose Hugh[A]es are Who (?) Or [F]even what?s the tr[C]uth
[Am]or who is getting screw[F]ed?
and it?s t[C]hem and you know [G]who and all his b[C]lues
[C]Way down yonder on the Vegas strip where the re[F]gular people pass
[Em]I heard some say he?s not too[Am] well
[F]I heard he?s sinking f[C]ast
[Am]But those are unofficial sour[F]ces to the news?
[C]About poor old Howard Hu[G]ghes and all his b[C]lues
Chorus:
[C]And if he didn?t have a nickel
[F]If he didn?t have a dime
[Em]He could do whatever he [Am]damn well please
[F]He could do it all the t[C]ime
[Em]But success is just a [Am]mess of overdue ne[F]ws (?) ?
[C]For old Howard Hu[G]ghes and all his bl[C]ues
[C]Now a bunch folks are writtin? books about him
[F]And some of them are awful long
[Em]I didn?t really have that [Am]much time so I th[F]ought I?d just write this s[C]ong
[Am]Gotta get me in a few licks t[F]oo?
[C]About old Howard Hu[G]ghes and all his b[C]lues
Chorus: (X2)
[C]And if he didn?t have a nickel
[F]If he didn?t have a dime
[Em]He could do whatever he [Am]damn well please
[F]He could do it all the t[C]ime
[Em]But success is just a [Am]mess of overdue ne[F]ws (?) ?
[C]For old Howard Hu[G]ghes and all his b[C]lues
