Song: Devil's Best Dress
Band: Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans
Album: Losin' Lately Gambler
Label: New West Records
Written By: Corb Lund
Tabbed/Chorded By: ultimatelefty

Great song by Corb, gotta be one of my favourites off of Losin' Lately Gambler!
Watching videos on Youtube to get me started, there are covers off the song where the
people covering it play with the Capo on the 2nd fret, but Corb definitely plays with the
Capo on the 6th fret. Please Rate, Comment, and Enjoy!

D|-2-------------------|
A|-3-3-----------------|
E|---------------------|

           C                       Am
There is a woman, she lives in the west
              C                             Am
She's not the devil, but she wears his best dress
                   C                              Am
She's quicker than lightning with the iron on her hips
                   C                                Am
She's quicker than lightning and they say she don't miss

  F                       Fmaj7
I can't say I love you, I don't hardly know you
     C                            G
They warned me about you from the start
                                                                 C
They said "Don't you cross her, if you don't want a hole in your heart"

                  C                               Am
The dress hides a pistol, a top-break Schofield I think
            C                                 Am
Not that it matters when you're outdrawn in a blink
                   C                            Am
She builds her own cartridge, it's a wildcatted load
                  C                          Am
With a wadcutting bullet for a blood letting wound

  F                       Fmaj7
I can't say I love you, I don't hardly know you
     C                            G
They warned me about you from the start
                                                                 C
They said "Don't you cross her, if you don't want a hole in your heart"

They said "Don't you cross her, if you don't want a hole in your heart"

           C                       Am

              C                                Am
She's not the devil, but she wears his best dress


And there you have it!! I didn't tab out the little licks in the verses in choruses from 
Grant Siemens,
but it shouldn't be too hard to figure them out, with a little bit of fooling around 
you'll probably find it,
plus there's six less frets to fool around with.

This is accurate to how corb plays it live, although im fairly certain the album is at capo 2 in E

I've seen covers on Youtube done with the Capo on the second fret, but I figured watching it right from Corb might be more accurate, although you could easily play it on the second fret and still make it sound good. However on Corb's vlog "What That Song Means Now" in the one for Gonna Shine Up My Boots, he says that he now records the songs on higher frets instead of recording it with the capo on a lower fret, and then playing it live with a capo on the higher fret...
