Bob Away My Blues  The Marshall Tucker Band

Intro: [cb]Em7b5[/cb] [cb]D#m7b5[/cb] [cb]Dm7b5[/cb] E A7 E A7 E A7 E
Well [A]I'm goin' [E]down to the [C#7]river
I've got a [F#m7]cane [B7]pole in my [E]hand [B7]
I've [E]got my [C#7]redworms in a [F#m7]Maxwell house coffee [B7]can
I'm gonna [E]sit under a [G#7]shade tree on a [A]riverbank where it's [D9]cool
I'm gonna [E]close my eyes and [C#7]dream and let the [F#m7]cork Bob [B7]away my [E]blues
[E]Well I wake up every [C#7]mornin' I pick [A7]peaches all [D9]day
And on [E]Saturday night we'll have a [C#7]dance or two
we might [F#m7]wallow in the [B7]hay [C7] [B7]
Now the [E]only thing that ever [C#7]whipped my pa
Was this [A7]bad dude called old [D9]age
And his [E]last years were his best [C#7]years
And [F#m7]this is what he [B7]had to [E]say [C7] [B7]
He said [A]boy I've worked this dirt all my [D9]life
but things [E7]ain't been good for [E]awhile
[F#m7]Why don't you move to the city make a little money
you might be the [B7]first one in the [C7]family ever to [B7]die with a smile
Well I [E]took his advice [C#7]things goin' well
But my [A]friends are far and [D9]few
But [E]whoever said a [C#7]city boy can't [F#m7]have them country [B7]blues
[E]Whoever said a [C#7]city boy can't [F#m7]have them country [B7]blues
[E]Whoever said a [C#7]city boy can't [F#m7]have them country [B7]blues
Well [C7]honey they ain't [B7]talked to me and [E]you
[cb]Gm7b5[/cb] [cb]Fm7b5[/cb] [cb]F#m7b5[/cb] [cb]Em7b5[/cb] [cb]Fm7b5[/cb] [cb]D#m7b5[/cb] E
