County Line by Dr Dog

This is a beautiful tune and one of my favorite songs, and I don't think the tabs 
out there do it justice... This is how I play it, I think it's fairly accurate.

The song is standard tuning 3 steps down. Scott plays the main G chord of the
verse with a C shape (with his pinkie finger on the 3rd fret of the high e 
string) so he can do the riffing with his 2nd finger without interrupting the
chord. I know this from watching videos. You should strum and finger pick this 
however you like, I'm just going to give you the chords.


"on the hills of both virginias..."

     G         C(ish)    G      Riffing

e|---3---------x---------3--------------------|
B|---0---------1---------0--------------------|
G|---0---------0---------0----------0/2-2-0---|
D|---0---------/2--------0------/2-2----------|
A|---2---------3---------2--------------------|
E|---3---------x---------3--------------------|
               ^use with reservation, it doesn't seem to happen every verse



"...I crossed a weary mile..."

     G         C(ish)  B11/F#  

e|---3---------x---------0--------------------|
B|---0---------0---------0--------------------|
G|---0---------0---------2--------------------|
D|---0---------/2--------1--------------------|
A|---2---------3---------x--------------------|
E|---3---------x---------2--------------------|
                         ^straight up made up the name of this chord.
                          this is the most important one to make the song
                          sound right in my opinion


"...and on bended knee, I will sing to thee..."

     Em        ??        C         G

e|---0---------0---------0---------3----------|
B|---0---------0---------1---------0----------|
G|---0---------0---------0---------0----------|
D|---2---------0---------2---------0----------|
A|---2-------------------3---------2----------|
E|---0--------------------------------3-------|             
               ^(don't know what to call this chord)



"...as I tie my shoes..."

     Am (intro style)    D7         

e|---0--------3----------2--------------------|
B|---1--1--1-------------1--------------------|
G|---2-------------------2--------------------|
D|---2-------------------0--------------------|
A|---0----------------------------------------|
E|---0----------------------------------------|



Just play that over and over again. Use your own judgment on finger picking and stuff. Enjoy!

Do you mean Scott plays this song 3 whole steps down (A# tuning) or 3 half steps down (1.5 whole steps)?
