"Old Lady from Carlsbad"
from the album "Laugh" (2002)
Transcribed by Adam Lawrence (AdamL84@nycap.rr.com)
Please email me if you have any suggestions/comments/corrections.
Keep in mind that I am a sax player by trade, guitar is not my strong suit!

This is a pretty straight-forward folk song using only the 
I, IV and V chords, key of F major. Emphasis is on the off-beats 
throughout the song.

---- = 1 beat
tempo = 120

Verse:

Met an old lady from Carlsbad who got bit on the ankle by a spider
F                                     Bb                    C

Swelled on up to about the size of her knee
F                                      C

Carryin' clothes in a plastic bag and breathin' kinda heavy
F                                     Bb

Havin' a hard day it was plain to see
F             C                   F


Transition (just after previous "F" chord)

She said "Somebody stole my shopping cart, it sittin' outside the door.
          Bb                                  F

I don't understand who could be so cruel!"
  F                                C

She said "Karma is a serious thing and a force to be reckoned with, and,
          Bb                             F           Bb

Well, the whippersnapper that took it is a fool!"
          F                   C            F

And now I'm walkin' with an old lady down to the corner bus stop
            C                        F

Talkin' 'bout Jesus and how her heart he won
Bb                      F                C

Talkin' with an old lady down at the corner bus stop
Bb                       F                  Bb

She said "'Spect you a miracle for the deed you done!"
           F                   C                F


End (just after previous "F" chord)
