Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is one of my favorite David Dondero songs,he played at a concert i saw, and its
fairly easy to play. He does it all fingerpicking, but for solo stuff its best just to
play the chords and fingerpick occasionally. All the chords are dead on,(i got bored
towards the end with placement over the word, but theyre very close, plus the rythym
is very easy to follow anyways.) the fingerpicked intro is right, it might now be
perfect note for note, but it highlights the main things that are important cuz lets
face it, fingerpicking is basically random.  Comments/questions to :
ossimdaveaof@yahoo.com    Im pretty sure on 99% of the words, the first two lines may
have thrown me off.

Chords-
Am   x02210
F    x03210  (not the typically barred one with the 1 on e)
C    x32010
G    320003  (if fingerpicking, youll really never use that bass note.)
C/B  x20010  (is a transition from the C chord to the Am chord)

         And a horn blows,  from a river boat,
       F             G               C   C/B Am
         It sounds the same,  as the day i went away,

         you know it sounds just the same.

        Am        F              C    Am     F   C      G
         from the ears, in a jail cell, in fear my foes
                C  C/B  Am
         its been 20 yrs

Chorus  F            G           C   C/B  Am
