Lonely Train Tab by Black Stone Cherry
Tabbed by nick dupont (sikk_nick)


Ok there has been some debate about how to play this song, but I now have it PERFECT.  


By the way the main riff is NOT played like this :
|--6-5-3-0-6-5-3-0-6-5-3-0-6-5-3-0----|
as is shown in all the other tabs on this site


tuning: drop C
