Ben Taylor - Oh Brother 3:31

Track 2 From 'Listening' 2012
Transcription By Tudor Toomey-Lewis

[Bm]No man is a hero every day
[G]and even a champion loses the day before the race
[Em]try not to be sleeping in your wide awake
[Bm]and when your chance comes have fun [A6]don't be afraid
[D]Oh brother all you got to know is who you are and it will be
[Bm]all right, all right
[D]oh brother, once you realize that you're a star you're gonna
[Bm]shine so bright
[Bm]And you don't always have to want to play
[G]and you won't always have to be willing to pay
[Em]try to make sure to make more love than hate
[Bm]and when your chance comes stand up [A6]do what you say
( Tab from: )
Verse3: This one's different. It can be played like any other verse and it'll sound
fine. If anyone wants to tab this bit for me, do so. In the mean time, I've provided a
very playable version here based off live performances. The first chord seems to differ
depending on the mood of the song so I've provided a few suggestions for you to play around
with for your cover.
(Bm7 or Bm or D) G
It won't always be easy along the way
[D]and you won't [G]always [Bm]believe me when I s[D]ay
[G]you don't need anything bu[Em]t life and faith
and you can [Bm]always ca[Bm7]ll out my name
Just got to[D] shine on, shine on, shine on, shine on, shine on
[Bm]little brother,
Just got to[D] shine on, shine on, shine on, shine on
[Bm]my little brother
[E]Can we just get some of that [G]good old time [D]JT right here now baby well
[Em]you know some o[E]ld time JT old [A7]time you know, you know, you know
One last thing, when playing the intro/verses the bass line is something like this for
the first change.
 E ---2--------------3----------| ETC ETC
 B ---3--------------3----------|
 G ---4--------------0----------|
 D ---4-------------------------|
 A -2----4-5-4-2-0--------------|
 E ----------------3------------|
