Title:			WHIPPIN' POST			(Gregg Allman)

		Am   Am(on 2nd fret)   A(on 5th fret)   Am(on 2nd fret) Am

		I've been run down,  and I've been lied to,

		And I don't know why I let that mean woman make me a fool.

		She took all my money,  wrecked my new car,

		Now she's with one of my good time buddies

		Drinkin in some cross town bar

		Bm7          D7                   E7
	CHORUS:	Sometimes I feel,    sometimes I feel,
	  |	               A	   D        C
	  |	Like I've been tied to the whippin' post
	  |	A           D        C
	  |	Tied to the whippin' post,
	  |	A           D        C
	  |	Tied to the whippin' post,
	  |	C    Tacet
	  -	Good lord I feel like I'm dying.

		My friends tell me   that I've been such a fool,

		And I have to stand by and take if, baby, all for loving you.

		Drown myself in sorrow  and I look at what you've done,

		But nothing seems to change, the bad times stay the same

		And I can't go on

Thanks for this, but I don't understand what you mean by Am(on 2nd fret) A(on 5th fret). Do you mean played barred?

He means to take an Am and slide it up so that you have the B string, 3rd fret (not 2nd), G and A strings on the 4th fret, open high string. (Just slide a normal Am uo 2 frets). The next chord is a C-dim. Hold the B,G, and A strings on the 5th fret - High E open. Picture an A chord played on the 5th fret. Repeat this pattern throughout the verses.
