Buenas Noches From a Lonely Room  Dwight Yoakam

Dwight Yoakam - Buenas Noches From A Lonely Room
(She Wore Red Dresses)
From the CD: Buenas Noches From A Lonely Room
 
 +-------------------------------------------------+

This is an incredible Dwight Yoakam song. None of
his other songs has a sound like this one. The
lyrics are haunting. To master the unique Spanish
sound of this song, you have to pluck the three
chords G, D, A as you see in the tab. As you
see I'm just slowly hitting the chords forwards
and backwards. You don't have to follow the tab
exactly, but it doesn't hurt. Here's the tab.

Play the tab twice before singing the song,
and three or four times at the end of the song
You can use it as a break in the middle of the
song, also. Here are the chords and lyrics.
 
 +---------------------------------------------+

Verse 1:
She wore red dresses with her black shining hair
She had my baby and caused me to care
Then coldly she left me to suffer and cry
She wore red dresses and told such sweet lies
 
 +---------------------------------------------+

Verse 2:
I never knew him but he took her away
And on my knees like a madman for vengeance I prayed
While the pain and the anger destroyed my weak mind
She wore red dresses and left the wounded behind
 
 +---------------------------------------------+

Verse 3:
I searched till I found them then I cursed at the sight
Of their sleeping shadows in the cold neon light
In the dark morning silence I placed the gun on her head
She wore red dresses, but now she lay dead
 
 +----------------------------------------------+

Have fun with it. :-)

AFTER THAT, HOLD THE E CHORD AND THE VOCALS COME IN...FOR THE VERSES
CONTINUE THE CHORD PROGRESSION WITHOUT THE FILLS BETWEEN CHORDS...ONE
GUITAR CONTINUES THE PICKING PATTERN WHILE THE OTHER STURMS THE CHORDS IN
RHYTHM....DURING THE CHORUS, THE SAME CHORD PROGRESSION APPLIES, BUT BOTH
GUITARS STRUM.
here are the electric gtr fills that come in around 2:24

the fills are repeated once more, then you go back to the opening with
with fills between chords...here is the solo with once again, the same
progression as the verse...
