The solo is fairly basic and follows the progression of the
verse (2 times). I'm not typing it in, 'cause you should be
able to get it off the record. If not: improvise!
OUTRO:

We're gon-na |
I hope this helps you master this tune, and remind you that if
you should ever come across any of J.J.'s stuff: POST IT!!
Phew!!! I only have these tunes written in music (notes), and
the converting to TAB is bugging me although I know some of it
by heart. In the following I only give you the chord
structure. I just don't have the time to do everything...
If you really have trouble figuring out some parts: listen to
the records. If that doesn't help: Send me a line and I'll try
to help.

[m] Cajun moon_ where does you[G]r power lie_? as you[Dm] move_ across
the so[G]uthern sky.__ You took my b[Dm]aby way too s[A7]oon. What have

(Same structure thruout song, fade on 6th verse ending.)

'Cause Cajun moon took him from you.

You can hear the silence of this song,
Don't trouble your mind, whatever you do,
'Cause he got me like he got you.

6. Repeat verse 1
Here's one of my favorite laid back tunes:

DON'T GO TO STRANGERS From "Naturally" 1st album.

Anyway, I know the intro by heart, and the rest of the song is basically spun ar
ound the same theme.

(Then there's a solo part over the same theme.)

try to help!)
