High Lonesome  The Gaslight Anthem

Hey here's an acoustic version of High Lonesome.
have fun and feel free to comment. I saw Brian Fallon playing this one somewhere on
Should be pretty much accurate.
Brian tuned everything half step down, but still sounds good with standard tuning.
C (032010)
 
 C 2 (032013) -----------------> in the bridge
 G (320033) ------------------| in the verse & chorus
 G 2 (320013) ------------------| in the intro & bridge
 G/E (055410) ------------------| before chorus

F/E (033210)
Dm (xx0231)
 
 Am7 (002213) ------------------| in the intro & verse
 Am (002210) ------------------| in the chorus

If you have trouble playing or remembering the chords, you can also play the standard
still sounds good. but Brian Fallon plays it the way I tabed it.

Chorus:
And M[Am]aria came from [F/E]Nashville with a su[C]itcase in her h[G]and

Verse:
So gravity [Am7]came
And stole the [Dm]temple that the schoolboys [G]praised
And the crowd shuffled[Am7] in
You're getting [C]drinks for the same boys

And the patter on the bar[Dm]
Was just this one[G] time
The patter on [Am7]the bar
Was just this [C]one night
[G]Only to get [F/E]by[G/E]

I always [Am]kinda sorta w[F/E]ish I'm someone [C]else[G]
