Boy From Tupelo - Live
by Emmylou Harris
Tabbed by Aitch27

This has been a popular song in Emmylou Harris' repetoire over the last 15 years and her 
live performances seemingly favour playing the song a semitone higher, and thus in a 
different key, than the originally recorded version (see my tab of the original version). 
Whilst playing in this higher key of C# (or of course D flat) she has played this in two 
positions by use of the options the guitar presents with the Capo. 
Version 1 is how she played the song on the 'live' iTunes Album 'Hickory Wind' whilst 
Version 2 appears to have become her preferred way of now playing this song in concerts, 
which does gives a richer and brighter sound particularly on the Gibson SJ-500 she favours.

C#                        F#
You don't love me, this I know
                           C#
Don't need a bible to tell me so
                           F#
I hung around a little too long
                       C#
I was good but now I'm gone

         F#
Like the buffalo
              C#
That boy from Tupelo
            G#
Any way the wind can blow
                       C#
That's where I'm gonna go
                    F#
I'll be gone like a five and dime
             C#
It'll be the perfect crime
                      G#
Just ask the boy from Tupelo
                     C#
He's the king and he ought to know

C# F#     C#     G#     C#
Ummmm, Ummmm, Ummmm, Ummmm

                       F#
The shoulder I've been leaning on
                               C#
Is the coldest place I've ever known
                                 F#
There's nothing left for me round here
                        C#
Looks like it's time to disappear

         F#
Like the buffalo
              C#
That boy from Tupelo
                      G#
That old wall down in Jericho
                C#
Maybelle on the radio
                      F#
I'll be gone like the five and dime
                     C#
It'll be the perfect crime
                      G#
Just ask the boy from Tupelo
                     C#
He's the king and he ought to know

C# F#     C#     G#     C#
Ummmm, Ummmm, Ummmm, Ummmm

                        F#
You don't love me, this I know
                              C#
Don't need a bible to tell me so
                   F#
It's a shame and a sin
                        C#
Everything I could have been to you

                 F#
Your last chance Texaco
                       C#
Your sweetheart of the rodeo
                 G#
A Juliet to your Romeo
                          C#
The border you cross into Mexico
                      F#
I'll never understand why or how
                      C#
Oh baby, its too late now
                      G#
Just ask the boy from Tupelo
                     C#
He's the king and he ought to know

C# F#     C#     G#     C#
Ummmm, Ummmm, Ummmm, Ummmm
