Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Please enjoy! The strumming pattern heard is a strum on each chord change 
with possible repeated strum with repeated chord. Any pattern works but 
listen to the song for ideas! Thank you!

Also, the F#m can be Bm if one is too hard. I strongly recommend switching to Bm instead of a F#m at the 
the last line of each section but I didn't want to change it 
and make it too complicated. But other than that, I recommend the F#m. 


Here is the changed "last" line for each section:

Bm               A        D
Harlan County's damn near dry.

Thanks again and good luck!

Drive on up in an A-T-V


  D             F#m
I saw a bear up on Black Mountain

D                    A      D
Carrying a six-pack in it's claws

  D                    F#m
I shot that bear and I took it's six-pack

         D                     F#m
And they cook a little meth in Harlan County
 
D                A       D
Chemistry in the kitchen sink

D                   F#m
Unless your over in Cumberland city,
