Albuquerque  Neil Young

TITLE: ALBUQUERQUE
ALBUM: TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT
SUBMITTED BY: John Rosenfelder
CORRECTIONS BY: Wolfgang Deimel
INTRO TAB BY: Alan DerKazarian
(via HyperRust)
NOTES: (from Alan)
Neil drops the bottom E down to D (like in Harvest Moon).
This gives his first chord played a weird Em/D sound.
Believe it or not, I'm pretty sure the first Em bar of the song
has five beats to it (5/4, maybe 5/8), and that the second D bar
has three beats (3/4?). This repeats for the third and fourth
bars but then rights itself to 4/4 time for the rest of the song.
Bizarre for Neil, I agree, but count it out. I'm pretty sure it's
true.

Well they s[Em]ay that Santa [D]Fe
is l[Em]ess than nin[D]ety miles away
and i've got t[Em]ime to roll a n[G]umber and rent a [A]car
Oh [G]Al[Em] - bu qu[D]erque
I've been flying down the road
and I've been starving to be alone
Independent from the sea that I've known
CHORUS
Instrumental Verse (harmonica solo) and Chorus (pedal steel solo)
So I'll stop where I can
Find some fried eggs and country ham
I'll find somewhere where they don't care who I am.
CHORUS
