About this tab version
This is meant to be an acoustic "Outlaw Country" version of the original 70's electric guitar, singing very high original. Drop-D gives it a bluesy flavor and allows you to sing the chorus without screeching too much. The original was very, very high. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Verse]
D
I met him in Seattle,
G                        D
He was getting down on a bottle,
D            A     G          D
Tellin’ lies in the Blue Moon Bar
D
His face was hard and traveled
G
And as the lines unraveled 
D                    A      G         D
I saw a man who could laugh about his scars

[Chorus]
D
He said, I got shanghaied in Vegas by a painted lady
                            A
Hog tied by a hustler in Ohio
D                            G
Derailed by a dancer down in Dallas Oh Lord, he said
D
Women gonna be the death of me 
     A     G     D
But what a way to go

[Verse]
D
He said a girl named Nancy
G                D
Once tickled his fancy
D                       A     G      D
And backed it up with a fifty dollar smile
D
He laughed when he remembered
G                    D
The pain of sweet surrender
D                   A         G         D
But heartache never seemed to cramp his style

[Chorus]
              D
He said I got tongue tied by a teacher in Tallahassee
      D                                A
I got French fried by a waitress in Idaho
      D                     G
I got waylaid by a widow in Wyoming oh lord he said
D                
Women gonna be the death of me 
    A      G      D
But what a way to go

[Chorus]
D
He said, I got shanghaied in Vegas by a painted lady
                            A
Hog tied by a hustler in Ohio
D                            G
Derailed by a dancer down in Dallas Oh Lord, he said
D
Women gonna be the death of me 
     A     G     D
But what a way to go

[Chorus]
              D
He said I got tongue tied by a teacher in Tallahassee
      D                                A
I got French fried by a waitress in Idaho
      D                     G
I got waylaid by a widow in Wyoming oh lord he said
D                
Women gonna be the death of me 
    A      G      D
But what a way to go
    A      G      D
But what a way to go
