Sweet City Woman - The Stampeders

Tabbed by Adam Bishop

Thanks to the people from the Sympatico Forums who helped out with this!

The G-G5-Am-Aadd9-G-Gadd9 chord progression is played by a 6-string
banjo, tuned like a normal guitar.  It sounds pretty much the same on an
acoustic guitar.  You should be able to tell which riffs are played by
that guitar, and which are played by the electric guitar.

Riff 1:
E|-7-7-7-10-x-7-7-7-10-7-x-x-5-5-5-7-x-5-5-5-7-5--5-5-5-5-5-5-x-5-5-5-5-5-x-x-|

Intro: Riff 1 x2

Verse 1 (with Riff 1)

Well I'm on my way to the city life
To a pretty face that shines her light on the city night
And I gotta catch a noon train, I gotta be there on time
Oh it feels so good to know she waits at the end of the line

(with riff 4) (I'm not sure about the words here....it could be "c'est bon")
Bon, say bon, bon bon say bon bon
Bon, say bon, bon bon say bon bon
So long boy, so long boy, so long
(with riff 5)
Neighbours and friends

(with riff 1)
Like a country morning, all smothered in dew
I just got away to make a man feel shiny and new
And she'll sing in the evening, some familiar tunes
And she feeds me love and tenderness and maccaroons

Chorus: slide up E and B strings at the end

C'est bon, not say bon. The singer thinks she really rocks. But semantics. Nice job. Working on the sliding banjo strum before entering the chorus would be a nice way to spend some time.
