        K.C. Jones (On The Road Again) - North Mississippi Allstars
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Alex Schwer
Email:alexschwer@live.com

Album: Shake Hands With Shorty
Tuning: Open G
Key: G major

Sidenote: It's hard to differentiate between who's playing what in this song. I know
that Cody plays the acoustic (and sings) as well as Luther. So i think there's two acoustic
guitars being finger picked at the same time, and also a piano which follows the riffs. 
The song itself is based on just two chords - G throughout the verse and then to C during
the "On the road again..." part, and then back to G. This is a good starting point to 
what's being played. Listen to the record and find a pattern that works for you. There's 
also good video of just the two of them playing it acoustically on youtube at a 
radio station, check it out.
