"Congratulations Joe" by Chuck Ragan
Album: Los Feliz

The whole song is pretty easy, in the end the slower rhythm gets a little tricky when 
play and try to sing along. Wonderful song, hope you enjoy my first tab. This one here is 
in the right key how Chuck plays it on the record and also live on stage.


Intro: E (whole time until he starts singing, listen to the strumming, he lifts up his 
middle finger while he's strumming and hammers it down).
Verse 1:
E
Woke up one day
and made his way down
       B
to the water front as he
did all the days
        A
in his 44 years                E
as longs as the ships made it in

E
stands for a cause
stands for a union
    B
for another day is gone
a dying breed of workers
    A
who lived to carry on           E
who died for the age that we're in


Chorus:
C#m (Des minor)
in a cloudy haze
    E
the fog drifted in
    A
and men wore his colors
     B
who chose to begin
C#m (Des minor)
as a younger man
E
working through his days
   A
to carry home the food
   B
to carry home the pay


Verse 2:

Woke up one day
and made his way down
to the water front as he
did all the days
in his 44 years
as long the ships made it in

the best day was the one
milestone in a marathone
on that oakland waterfront
well deserved reward
for a hard working one
served and now deserves
whats to come


Chorus:

in a cloudy haze
the fog drifted in
and men wore his colors
who chose to begin
as a older man
working through every day
to carry home the food
to carry home the pay

End:
(slower)
A               B
  we all have a cause
             E
worth waging war
              C#m (Des minor)
worth making peace to keep
A               B
  we all have a love
              E
whatever that is
           C#m (Des minor)
or whom is thee to seek
A               B
  there comes a day
        E
if were lucky enough
        C#m (Des minor)
and the cards fall our way, i pray
A                 B
  to sit with the birds
             E
and take the boots off
A                 B
  to sit with the birds
             E
and take the boots off
