=======================
Band- The Black Keys
Album - Rubber Factory
Song - Stack Shot Billy
=======================
Standard Tuning

The actual song is played half a step down in A minor, but I find it easier to play in A.

[Verse]

Stack shot Billy in the back of the head
Stack made sure Billy Lyons was dead
.45 pistol in Stack's right hand
Sent him away to the promised land

[Chorus]

Stack shot Billy
.45
Stack shot Billy
Billy laid down and died

[Verse]

Stack Lee had himself an evil brain
Loved his gun and his sweet cocaine
Stack got quiet when the shadows fell
Knew soon enough that he'd burn in hell

[Chorus]

Stack shot Billy
.45
Stack shot Billy
Billy laid down and died

Though in the studio version it's played slightly off G sharp, when performing live, it looks to me like Dan plays this in the key of G with the A string tuned down to G. I'm not sure what he has the 1st and 6th strings tuned to, but I think it's the same tuning he uses in "Busted" if that helps...

B|-3---1-------------1-3-----------------
G|---------3-0---0-3-----3---------------
D|-------------3-----------------0-------
G|-0---0---------------------0-3---------
E|---------------------------------------

something like that...

I saw them in Dallas. They played this so good live. Dan and Pat were flailing around. Goddamn!

I agree with stonefree86, on the DVD you can hear him tune down the A string to G and I'm pretty sure that's all he
tunes down. And, yes, he plays Busted then Stack Shot in this tuning. The CD has a different tuning.
