This is is John Butler's new song "Kimberly" as played on the "Tin Shed Tales" solo album.
John butler plays this piece in Dropped F 
Although, I have transcribed it to STANDARD tuning for ease of playing..



Intro:(The chords aren't actually played here; but I would recommend single strums if 
you wish to back it)

F                  Asus4
I am what I am and I am strong
        Bb
Cause I got my land and I got my song
F                  Asus4
I am what I am and I am belong
        Bb
Cause I got my land and I got my song



Harmonica Bridge: (F-F-Asus4-Bb) x4


 F                        Asus4          Bb
Tell you a story, about a girl named Kimberly
 F                               Asus4             Bb
Who all the cowboys wanted cause she was wild and free
 F                                         Asus4         Bb
But now theres fussing and theres fighting We all taking sides
 F                                               Asus4          Bb
While the cowboys are playing their old games of conquer and divide. You see



F                        Asus4        Bb
Kimberly was special, a rare and wild soul
       F                             Asus4            Bb
Nearly every man who met her, their hearts she always stole
              F                              Asus4            Bb
But there are always those exceptions of the cold and callous kind
     F                        Asus4                  Bb
That wanted just her body and leave the mess for us behind



        F                          Asus4       Bb
Now the prince of the cowboys, his name was Barnett
   F                                      Asus4        Bb
He wanted to leave his mark, you know, so we did not forget
            F               Asus4   Bb
So he said "Mine mine mine, all for me"
     F                           Asus4             Bb
It's great to be a cowboy in the wild west roaming free


      F                                   Asus4            Bb
So he brandished all his bullets he put a gun right to our head
            F                                           Asus4          
 Bb
He said "I'm giving you all a choice now, you're either with me or your dead
           F                            Asus4          Bb
You know I got to have this kim, I cant get her off my mind
    F                            Asus4 Bb
And I aint gonna stop until shes mine, mine"



G           Bb
Where do i stand?
         Asus4                  C
Got this hole in my heart and a line drawn in the
G              Bb
sand. It's all gray.
         Asus4                   C           G
There are no black and whites so who am I to say



F                  Asus4
I am what I am and I am strong
        Bb
Cause I got my land and I got my song
F                  Asus4
I am what I am and I am belong
        Bb
Cause I got my land and I got my song



Harmonica Bridge: (F-F-Asus4-Bb) x4


        F                          Asus4        Bb
Now its come to a showdown and its all push and pull
         F                                   Asus4               Bb
Got these lawyers having field day while the cowboys are funding schools
         F                               Asus4           Bb
I guess it boils down to how you see it, do you see Kimberly,
        F                                        Asus4          Bb
Or just another god damn hole in the ground just another opportunity?




G           Bb
Where do i stand?
         Asus4                  C
Got this hole in my heart and a line drawn in the
G              Bb
sand. It's all gray.
         Asus4                   C           G
There are no black and whites so who am I to say

        Bb
You are wrong
        Asus4               C             G
but you never know what you got until its gone
        Bb
And one day
      Asus4                         C               G
the little people will ask what you did and what we said



F                  Asus4
I am what I am and I am strong
        Bb
Cause I got my land and I got my song
F                  Asus4
I am what I am and I am belong
        Bb
Cause I got my land and I got my song
F                  Asus4
I am what I am and I am strong
        Bb
Cause I got my land and I got my song
F                  Asus4
I am what I am and I am belong
        Bb
Cause I got my land and I got my song

Can someone PLEASE tab out this song in it's original tuning, or at least post the tuning so that I can do it? I'd much rather play it in dropped F or whatever he plays it in that hybrid it in standard. But good job, sounds good like this.
