Hey guys, this my first tab and this is an easy tab on how to play "The Assumption 
Song" by the Arrogant Worms.

Tabbed by: Chadster111

This song is fairly simple once you get down the chords. The chords are:

 C: x32010
 G: 320003
Am: xx2210
 F: x33211

Once you have these chords down it is a simple, 'down-down-down-down' strum 
pattern. You will play the chords simultaneously with the quarter notes.

Please be aware that you will strike 'C' twice, 'G' twice, 'Am' twice, but only 
'F' once. Once you hit 'F' once, you start over the pattern like so:
      C     C     G     G     Am     Am     F     C     C     G     G 

This pattern ensues throughout the entire song. Now to the entire tabulature:

C                           G
There was an old farmer who lived on a rock,
   Am                             F
he sat in the meadow, just shaking his 
C                         G
fist at the boys who were down by the crick,
      Am                      F
their feet in the water, their hands on their
C                          G
marbles and playthings and hand half-past four,
Am                          F
there came a young lady, she looked like a 
C                         G
pretty young creature she sat on the grass,
Am                              F
she pulled up her dress, and she showed them her
C                     G
ruffles and laces and fluffy white duck,
Am                          F
she said she was learning a new way to
C                         G
bring up her children, so they would not spit
Am                                  F                             
while the boys in the barnyard were shoveling
C                       G
refuse, and litter from yesterday's hunt
Am                               F
while the girl in the meadow was rubbing her
C                  G
eye at the fellow, down by the dock
Am                          F
he looked like a man with a sizable
C                           G
home in the country, with a big fence out front
Am                              F
if he asked her politely, she'd show him her
C                       G
little pet dog, who was subject to fits
Am                           F
and maybe she'd let him grab hold of her
C                          G
small, tender hands with a movement so quick
Am                           F
and then she'd bend over and suck on his
C                    G
candy, so tasty made of butterscotch
Am                                  F
and then he'd spread whip cream all over her
C                         G
cookies that she had left out on her shelf
if you think this is dirty
you can go ____ yourself!

I'm just a beginner so don't take my word for it, but I feel like it should go like this: C F C G F C
But like I said, I'm just a beginner.

Clearly wrong. comparing the tab to the version on youtube (i hope the author and i had the same version in mind), the Am and F are just plain wrong
