                             Nobody's Fool - Shakey Graves
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Byron
E-mail: schu1939@umn.edu

Give it a shot, sprinkle corrections in or change it up entirely! Shakey is hard to tab for due to all the 
fills he throws in, so use the chords here as more of guidelines if you're looking for that eclectic sound.

Tuning: DADF#AD
/= slide up
\= slide down
h= hammer on
p= pull off

Intro: play once before starting the first verse

Part 3
    Hard to   get by   on your own  ne - ver - a- lone


The rest follows this pattern- here are the rest of the lyrics associated to the guitar part as labeled above:

(Part 1)
Life of regret
Each drink and each cigarette
leads to life of regret

(Part 2)
So go out, make your amends
Plant you a garden, get you some friends

(Part 3)
Trouble's still just what you get
In this life of regret

(Part 1)
Chosen by god
Whether you like it or now, you've been chosen by god

(Part 2)
So stand there, curse at the clouds
You know the answer, so scream it out loud

(Part 3)
Never no useless old slob
Never asleep on the job
Never forget what you're not
You've been chosen by god

(Part 1)
But you're nobody's fool
That's the one thing they don't teach in school
You ain't nobody's fool

(Part 2)
So don't worry, you'll turn out fine
Better off dead than waitin in line

(Part 3)
Stick to that golden old rule
You ain't NOBODY'S FOOL

If he didn't include lyrics, I would assume this is a completely different song. Only the first 5 or so notes are correct

While this is not perfect, and I had to find some of the notes myself by watching the video of Shakey playing it, this tab proved more than helpful!!
Thank you
