                                   Return of the Grievous Angel
                                         Gram Parsons

          A                     D     A
Won't you scratch my itch sweet Annie Rich 
A            E         A
And welcome me back to town
A                              D              A
Come out on your porch or I'll step into your parlor
         B                        E
And I'll show you how it all went down
A                             A7                     D
Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
      A              A7           D
And a good saloon in every single town


       D            E                  A
Oh and I remembered something you once told me
    D                 E               A
And I'll be damned if it did not come true
D               E            A     C#m   F#m             
Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
    D                E                     A
And they all lead me straight back home to you


         C#m            D       E        A
`Cause I headed West to grow up with the country
 F#m                  E                   A
Across those prairies with those waves of grain
      C#m                 D      E         A
And I saw my devil, and I saw my deep blue sea
      D                      E           D           E    A
And I thought about a calico bonnet from Cheyenne to Tennessee


          A                  D     A                  E         A
We flew straight across that river bridge, last night half past two
A                              D            A      B               E
Switchman wave his lantern goodbye and good day as we went rolling through
A                          A7                   D
Billboards and truck stops pass by the grievous angel
    A               E7             A
And now I know just what I have to do


SOLO/INSTRUMENTAL


        C#m           D        E         A
And the man on the radio won't leave me alone
            F#m               E                              A
He wants to take my money for something that I've never been shown
      C#m                 D      E         A
And I saw my devil, and I saw my deep blue sea
      D                      E           D           E    A
And I thought about a calico bonnet from Cheyenne to Tennessee


    A                        D           A
The news I could bring I met up with the king
                E          A
On his head an amphetamine crown
   A                            D         A
He talked about unbuckling that old bible belt
            B                   E
And lighted out for some desert town
A                             A7                     D
Out with the truckers and the kickers and the cowboy angels
      A              A7           D
And a good saloon in every single town


       D            E                  A
Oh but I remembered something you once told me
    D                 E               A
And I'll be damned if it did not come true
D               E            A     C#m   F#m             
Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
    D                E                     A
And they all lead me straight back home to you

D               E            A     C#m   F#m             
Twenty thousand roads I went down, down, down
    D                E                     A
And they all lead me straight back home to you

Correct chords, just need a Capo on 1 to sound like the recording

I like the tab but is that C#m (in the down down down part) correct? Every time I play it, it sounds off to me, either open or with a capo. Everything else sounds spot on

I want to post or [tab]
