Song: Cousin Norman

Composer: Hugh Nicholson
Tabbed by: DJ
2nd July 2013

CAPO: 2nd fret (Sounds in key of A)

Chord shapes and fret positions are relative to the capo:
D4 = xx0233     Bm    = x24432    D7 = xx0212
D  = xx0232     D/F#  = xx4232    G7 = 320001
G  = 320022     D/A   = xxx232
A  = x02220     Dsus2 = xx0230

[N.B. The original was played without a capo,
and with a walking bassline, this is a simpler version]

[Verse 1]
G                           A
    Through the long grass,    past the tall trees,
D
    Lies a cabin, nestling in the pines,
G                        A
    And my sweetheart's   ...catching small fish,
D
    With a cane, and a bent hook on a line,
G                   A               Bm
    So, if you're passing  ...close by-------, please,

[Verse 2]
G                    A
   There's my daddy,   on the front porch,
D
   With a lazy hound lying by his feet,
G                 A                 D
   And my mama's ...in the kitchen,   with the table all ready set to eat,
G                  A             Bm
   So if you're passing ...close by------, please,
