			     Roll Um Easy - Little Feat - Dixie Chicken
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:	Ian Ferguson

Tuning:		EAEAC#E - OPEN A

A sublime song by Lowell George - makes all the hairs on your arms stand on end
simultaneously. 

I've transcribed this in an Open A tuning.You could also play in Open G with 
a capo on the 2nd fret if you want. To play in Open G, just move everything 
up 2 frets.

LYRICS


Oh I am just a vagabond, 
a drifter on the run
And eloquent profanity, 
it rolls right off my tongue.
And I have dined in palaces,   
drunk wine with kings and queens
But Darlin', oh Darlin', 
you're the best thing I ever seen.

Won't you roll ma easy,
oh slow and easy.
Take ma independence,
with no apprehension, no tension.
You're walking, talking ha-um 
paradise sweet paradise.

I've been across this country 
from Denver to the ocean,   
and I never met girls that could sing so sweet 
like the angels that live in Houston.

Singing roll ma easy, so slow and easy
Play the concertina be a temptress
and Baby I'm defenseless.
Singin' harmony
in unison
sweet harmony
gotta hoist the flag
and I'll beat your drum.
