About this tab version
In the video Colter plays this capoed on the second fret because his guitar is tuned down a full step. To match the video, you can play it in standard tuning with no capo. The D/F# is important because when he plays this chord the emphasis is on the low F note, not the high D chord. Wrap your thumb around the neck and grab the F note with your thumb while making the normal D chord shape like he does in the video to make it sound like his version. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Chorus]
G
Well, I figure I'll
                C
Buy me a motorcycle
         G
Wrap her pretty little frame
         D/F#
Around a telephone pole
G
Ride her off a mountain
           C
Like old Arlo
G                    D/F#   G
Figure I'll buy me a motorcycle

[Verse 1]
G
Well, I figure I'll walk
              C
To the liquor store
       G
Thunderbird, two bottles
      D/F#
Maybe three, maybe four
G
Follow my feet
               C
Down the Music Row
G
Pour it on the pavement
         D/F#         G
Like you would a tombstone

[Bridge]
                 C
Like you would a tombstone
                 G
Like you would a tombstone
G
Pour it on the pavement
         D/F#         G
Like you would a tombstone

{Instrumental Break]
G C G D/F#
G C G D/F#
G D/F# G

[Verse 2]
G
Well, I figure I'm weary
                C
Of feeling this way
G
Pop another pill
D/F#
Hop another train
G
Tell my brothers and my sisters
                     C
That it's keeping me sane
G
Figure I'm weary of
D/F#         G
Feeling this way

[Chorus]
G
Well, I figure I'll
                C
Buy me a motorcycle
         G
Wrap her pretty little frame
         D/F#
Around a telephone pole
G
Ride her off a mountain
           C
Like old Arlo
G                    D/F#   G
Figure I'll buy me a motorcycle

{Outro]
G                    D/F#   G
Figure I'll buy me a motorcycle
G                    D/F#   G
Figure I'll buy me a motorcycle

It sounds like it could use a little work. Not sure where yet. Very good start. I'll see what I can come up with and I'll get back with ya.

Thanks! The way I play it really needs a tab, not just chords, but I have no idea how to write tabs effectively. I just watched Colter play it, and tried to play it the same way he does.
