G          (slide F# to G)
Im Southbound

G        C7                      G
Good old road dont you get me down

G                      A7                   D
Got ?????????????????? passing through this town

G                            B7
Get to where im going by the break of day

C                      G
Not quite certain can't really say

G            B7      C                     D
Aint hard to see the roads one way and its southbound

(Stress roots of chords for that wonderful walkup....G, B, C, C#, D)


Yes Houston up to Memphis

Good lord what a long hard ride

Chicago to St Luois

             A7              D
now you know that is more my style

G                B7
Been on the road for some time

        C7                  G
Got the Double Vision Gotta Troubled Mind

G       B7     C                  D
Wont be long before youll find me southbound

(Again, Stress roots of chords for that wonderful walkup....G, B, C, C#, D)

I said Break back and a trainwreck
Like a jam in the left hand lane
Yes its holding up my production
I'll hit up my southbound train
Been on the track for some time
Got the Double Vision Gotta Troubled Mind
Wont be long before youll find me southbound

I said no luck Atlanta
I said last chance Tennessee
I said settle down im southern bound
Its home sweet home to me
Yes I've seen the light and I do believe
When i get down there i wont wanna leave
Won't be loong before you find me southbound

After each verse, the chorus starts again.
Solos are played with the same chord progression as the chorus.

Sorry if the lyrics are blank or incorrect. they are hard to determine from the version 
on Mountain Tracks Vol. 5.

Ive found that playing G as a bar chord sounds better than an open G and makes that 
awesome soulful slide at the end of "southbound" easier to play, although the slide actually 
occurs on Jeff Austin's Mandolin.

Enjoy and feel free to fill in lyrics/edit this one.
