Shakey Graves - Roll The Bones
7. City In A Bottle (live @ 2023)

Capo: 2
174 bpm
4/4
Swing Feel

-------------------------------------------------------

Note: It sounds fine as Em or E but throughout most of
the song, you can’t hear the third, around the chorus
you can hear a minor note, but I like to mute the D
string while playing this song

-------------------------------------------------------

Another Note: Throughout the song it gets boring just
strumming E5, if you listen carefully Shakey will mute
the high "e" string every other bar of E5, this adds
more character to the song.

Oh to pay for all the wicked things
     B7            E5
that wander in the night
