G            F(addG)
Oh, to live on Sugar Mountain
G                         F(addG)
with the barkers and the colored balloons,
G                  F(addG)
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Dm                                                G
tho' you're thinkin' that you're leavin' there too soon,
Dm                      G
you're leavin' there too soon.
G                      F(addG)
It's so noisy at the fair
                        G
but all your friends are there
                        F(addG)
And the candy floss you had
                           G
and your mother and your dad.
G            F(addG)
Oh, to live on Sugar Mountain
G                         F(addG)
with the barkers and the colored balloons,
G                  F(addG)
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Dm                                                G
tho' you're thinkin' that you're leavin' there too soon,
Dm                      G
you're leavin' there too soon.
Dsus4(addE)  C  G
G                                F(addG)
There's a girl just down the aisle,
                       G
oh, to turn and see her smile.
                               F(addG)
You can hear the words she wrote
                           G
as you read the hidden note.
G            F(addG)
Oh, to live on Sugar Mountain
G                         F(addG)
with the barkers and the colored balloons,
G                  F(addG)
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Dm                                                G
tho' you're thinkin' that you're leavin' there too soon,
Dm                      G
you're leavin' there too soon.
Dsus4(addE)  C  G
G                              F(addG)
Now you're underneath the stairs
                                 G
and you're givin' back some glares
                         F(addG)
To the people who you met
                         G   C/E  G
and it's your first cigarette.
G            F(addG)
Oh, to live on Sugar Mountain
G                         F(addG)
with the barkers and the colored balloons,
G                  F(addG)
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Dm                                                G
tho' you're thinkin' that you're leavin' there too soon,
Dm                      G
you're leavin' there too soon.
G                             F(addG)
Now you say you're leavin' home
                           G
'cause you want to be alone.
                          F(addG)
Ain't it funny how you feel
                              G
When you're findin' out it's real?
G            F(addG)
Oh, to live on Sugar Mountain
G                         F(addG)
with the barkers and the colored balloons,
G                  F(addG)
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Dm                                                G
tho' you're thinkin' that you're leavin' there too soon,
Dm                      G
you're leavin' there too soon.
G            F(addG)
Oh, to live on Sugar Mountain
G                         F(addG)
with the barkers and the colored balloons,
G                  F(addG)
You can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain
Dm                                                    G
tho' you're thinkin' that you're leavin' there too soon

Dear Mr. Vetter,

I notice that your five star tab excludes exact picking. As one who has taken up guitar not quite a year ago, I am curious to know how a tab earns a five star rating while excluding such information.

Please don't misunderstand me. I think your tab is wonderful; the chords seem spot on. Should I then presume that many guitarists opt to "highlight" chord strumming by picking in their own style, thereby eliminating the need for note-for-note tabbing?

Thanks
