Ok so the song is pretty simple just uses
the D G and A and follows the same chord structure
through most of the song cept for the second and third verse...
but even then its not that big a deviation!
This was Josh's first song and my first tab so if there are any mistakes I'm sorry!
Murder On My Mind
I'm awful sad to say
That my partner died last week
And I'm so shook up inside,
I can barely even speak,
I don't know how he died
It all came as such a shock......
But i suspect he started feeling ill
When i hit him with a rock
We where partners in a claim
Up in gold hill Idaho,
And we'd yet to find something
Golden except the yellow snow,(first song)
My partner joe god bless his soul
Had hit the mother load
"Well I'll use my gold" said my partner Joe
To get my education
And if any is left when I am through
I'll give it to sick children
Well i thought that Joe was crazy
For to hear him talk like that.....
So i decided it was best for joe
If he took a little nap
So i picked up a big old piece of gold,
And I hit joe on the head,
And joe shut his weary eyes,
And lay down on the rocky bed,
"you take some rest my faithful friend"
Said i as joe lay down
And let me load this wagon
With the gold that you have found.
(This is my first song I'm not proud)
So like the true friend that i was
I loaded up the ore
While my partner joe lay silently
sleeping on the floor
And when the gold was loaded
And i was set to get to town.....
I tried to wake my sleepy friend
But he refused to come around.
"Well if that don't wake you up,
I know something that just might"
Said I as i lit up
A few sticks of dynamite,
I settle down and waited,
For them to wake Joe from his dream....
But alas i put the sticks to close and Joe blew to smithereens,
And if Joes luck wasnt bad enough
He lay close toe the mine,
And when the dynamite went off,
he was covered by mountain slime,
Alas said I "all evidence
Is gone of poor Joe's life....
All that left is a ton of gold
And a little less dynamite,
So now Joe rests in pieces,
And i on a water bed,
But it doesnt bother me a bit,
That my partner joe is dead,
For while some people might say
That miner got the shaft.....(first song)
I'm the only one that knows
That Old Joe had a blast
Hope it sounds ok!
