There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is a fantastic track from Oberst's solo album "Ruminations." It's a very easy song
to play, so enjoy!
I will be posting other tracks from the record as well, so be on the lookout for them!
Cheers- Luca

(Use a key of C/G harmonica)

C/G Fmaj7

[Verse 1]

There's a dance hall there

Where the sick folks go
Like the olden days on the Barbary Coast
C/G                                       Fmaj7
There's a barefoot child playing in the rain
You can sell your wares even if they're hot
In the great bazaar or the parking lot
C/G                                     Fmaj7
Cause it takes a while to know who to blame
I might have a taste cause the first one's free
And the checkout girl's got a thing for me
C/G                                       Fmaj7
And they're both as sweet as the day is long


Dm                 G
I don't wanna feel stuck, baby
Dm               G             C/G
I just wanna get drunk before noon

[Verse 2]

I don't mind my head when there's room to dream
Feel like Paul Gauguin painting breadfruit trees
C/G                                   Fmaj7
In some far off place where I don't belong
Try to lose myself in the primitive
In Yosemite like John Muir did
C/G                                           Fmaj7
But his eyes were blue and mine are red and raw
'Cause the modern world is a sight to see
It's a stimulant, it's pornography
C/G                                  Fmaj7
It takes all my will not to turn it off


Dm                       G
I don't want you to feel sad, baby
Dm                G               C/G
I take everything back, I swear I do


           Dm      C/G         G
Cause once all the friends I had
     C/G       G      Dm
Have used me up and left
I bet you hang around
I bet you'll hang around awhile


C/G Fmaj7 Dm G C/G

All of the D/G chords should actually be G/D. When you use chords with slashes the top letter is the chord and the bottom letter is the bass note. So the overall chord is G, but the bass note is D. Not the other way around. You can just play a G chord in this case and it sounds great. Also "you can sell your wares even if they're HOT". Not "hard". Good chord chart otherwise.

Any idea why this chord chart changed keys?? Or is something just wrong on my end?
