Down the Road Mick Flannery
Another nice quiet song off Mick's new album.
This song is finger-picked but I won't tab out the picking pattern
because it's too easy, so if you can't figure it out for yourself there is no hope.
This song is played with the Capo on the 2nd fret.
The chord structure is the same for each verse and
chorus as they are written the first time.
Intro: | C | G | C | G | F | Am | G | F |
[C]It's been a [G]good spell,[C] far as [G]i'd tell,
But [F]darling you must [Am]know now [G]I don't f[F]eel well.
[C]How it's [G]goin'[C] and where it's [G]goin',
We [F]never had an [Am]easy w[G]ay of k[F]nowin'.
[C]In my [Am]mind I [C]see my sis[Am]ter,
[C]In my [Am]mind I [C]hear my mother [G]call me [C]home.
I'm in [Am]need of no [C]mans mer[Am]cy,
[C]You just [Am]touch my hand and [C]wave me [G]down the [C]road.[G]
Bring my child here, bring 'em all near,
There's somethin' that I want each one to hear.
That I am goin', I am goin',
But what a thing to have pride in the knowin'.
In my mind I see my sister,
In my mind I hear my mother call me home.
I'm in need of no man's mercy,
You just touch my hand and wave me down the road.
I see a young man, pen in his hand,
He's tryin' to sum the whole show up, but he can't.
Link (play the chorus chords here)
Lookin' back on, all the we've done,
The whole thing seemed to have no rhyme or reason,
Put your shoes on baby, put your dress on,
I think they're linin' up the last dance of the season.
Finish on C.
Thanks for looking at this tab I hope you like it, i'll have
more of Mick's new stuff put up in the coming weeks.
