Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is mostly the same tab by Harlan L Thompson under Bob Dylan, but for the Redbird version,
I like to tune the e string to F# and keep my fingers on the 3rd fret of the e and B strings at all times
like:
    Bm       G    D     A
F#|----------3----3-----3--------|
 B|----------3----3-----3--------|
 G|----4-----0----2-----2--------|
 D|----4-----0----0-----2--------|
 A|----2-----2----0-----0--------|
 E|----------3-------------------|

If you don't want to tune your guitar down, he hits a note on the e string with the G, D, and A chords on the
5th fret, tuning the e string just makes it easier.


There's also this fill at certain parts of the song in the background:
F#|--1-0-----------|     e|---3--2---0--------|
 B|-------5---3----|     B|-------------3-----|
 G|----------------| or  G|-------------------|
 D|----------------|     D|-------------------|
 A|----------------|     A|-------------------|
 E|----------------|     E|-------------------|

[Intro] 

D

[Verse 1]

      Bm   G         D                         A
I've been      a moonshiner for seventeen long years
      Bm     G         D                    A
I've spent all      my money on whiskey and beer
   G         A          D         G
I go to some hollow and set up my still
   Bm      G         D
If whiskey don't kill me
                       A
Then I don't know what will

Bm   G(Fill)   D


[Verse 2]

  Bm   G           D                         A
I go to       some barroom and drink with my friends
          Bm     G        D                     A
Where the women     can't follow and see what I spent
    G                 A
God bless them pretty women
      D             G
How I wish they was mine
      Bm         G     D
Their breath is     as sweet as
               A
The dew on the vine

Bm   G(Fill)   D


[Verse 3]

       Bm  G           D
Let me eat    when I'm hungry
                      A
Let me drink when I'm dry
        Bm       G            D
Give me dollars      when I'm hard up
                A
Religion when I die
    G           A
The whole world is a bottle
    D             G
And life's just a dram
       Bm           D
When a bottle gets empty
                      A
It sure ain't worth a damn


[Outro]

Bm    G(Fill)  D

Just a note, I think, given that it sounds much closer, that this was played with the capo on the seocnd fret, with C F G, and Am chords.Now if I could figure out that picking pattern...

The fill part ends on an A I think. Bm G D A. This arrangement is pretty, thanks.
