About this tab version
The original song is played on multiple instruments like mandolin and guitar, and the chords are mostly picked, or strummed and picked (hard to tell). This is just a bare-bones tab depicting the chords so players can improvise the picking on top of the chords. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Intro]
C   F   Am   G


[Verse]
C                      F 
  Dreamless sleep will fall
       Am             G
Like a deep, poisoned well
C                F
  On the steeple birds
         Am         G
And this red-light hotel


[Chorus]
F                    C          F
  So lay your pistol down, Granny
                      Am      G
The company men never came to you
F                       C          F
  But don't unknit your brow, Granny
                             Am                G
The mice in the yard ate the potted plants you grew


[Instrumental]
C   F   Am   G


[Verse]
C                  F 
  Pour your bitter tea
        Am              G
For our sweet, liquored host
C                  F
  Perfect polished stones
         Am               G
But this breeze beats you both


[Chorus]
F                    C          F
  So lay your pistol down, Granny
                      Am      G
The duty of men never fell to you
F                      C          F
  When you unknit your brow, Granny
                                        Am            G
Your friends, they are jewels, twice as beautiful and few


[Outro]
C   F   Am   G (x2)
