Subject: Elvis Presley: That's Alright, Mama

Elvis heard bluesman Arthur Crudup play this as a medium shuffle; The King,
himself played it in a rockabilly style with a bass pattern alternating
between the root and the fifth. Both are great.

That's Alright, Mama
Arthur Crudup

Well, that's alright, mama
That's alright for you
A                    A7
That's alright mama, just anyway you do
A7              D
Well, that's alright, that's alright.
D        E[7]                       A
That's alright now mama, anyway you do

Mama she done told me,
Papa done told me too
'Son, that gal your foolin' with,
She ain't no good for you'
But, that's alright, that's alright.
That's alright now mama, anyway you do

I'm leaving town, baby
I'm leaving town for sure
Well, then you wont be bothered with
Me hanging 'round your door
Well, that's alright, that's alright.
That's alright now mama, anyway you do

Sounds good. It's mostly about what you can do with your voice, this song. Not really the song for me...

Sorry for the previous comment looking strange...

The D and E I play is actually D7 and E7, with open C7 shape...

x5453x is the D, or D7...

x7675x is the E, or E7...

I want to post or [tab]
