Steve Forbert – Goin’ down to Laurel
Chords by Rob Ravestein


Capo on 2nd fret
play 3 times (1 harmonica + 2 guitar)

C  G  Dm  G 

     C               G 
Well everybody here, seems to like to laugh
Dm                           G
Look at Johnny jivin' across the floor
   C                     G
He can play the fool and make a few mistakes,
Dm                              G
But all the same he'll never be a bore

    C                   G
I'm glad to be so young talkin' with my tongue
Dm                        G
Glad to be so careless in my way
C                     G
Glad to take a chance and play against the odds
Dm                     G
Glad to be so crazy in my day


[CHORUS]
     C                 Am
Well I'm goin' down to Laurel
G                          Am
It's a dirty stinkin' town yea
F             G                         Am
But me I know exactly what I'm going to find
C G Am Dm          Em
.-.-.-.Little girl I'm goin' to see
Am                C
She is a fool for lovin' me
F                 G                           C
But she's in love and love's a funny state of mind
Yes it is (on second chorus)

     C                      G
Well what was that you said when you had a tear
Dm                          G
Rolling down your cheek the other night
C                       G
I couldn't catch it all there's something going wrong
Dm                                 G
I hope you got it straightened out alright

C                    G
Everything's so loud and everything's so fast
Dm                               G
I hear your brother married once again
    C                        G
Yea best of luck and all and try to have some fun
Dm                                      G
They tell me this great life can always end

harmonica theme again: [C-G-D min-G]

    C                       G
I'm smilin' from a car, I'm goin' for a drive
Dm                                   G
Feel the whistle blowin' breeze gone flying by
C                     G
Mirror's on the moon, echo in the sun
Dm                          G
See just a touch of madness in my eye

C                          G
Please don't mention rain, please don't talk of trains
Dm                                     G
Please don't mention buildings burning down
C                    G
Everybody here seems to like to laugh
Dm                                     G
Either step in time or just don't hang around


[CHORUS]
     C                 Am
Well I'm goin' down to Laurel
G                          Am
