Song: Weight of the Gun
Band: Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans
Album: Things That Can't Be Undone
Tabbed/Chorded By: ultimatelefty

Hey guys, I don't do this very often anymore (1st year at university is keeping me pretty busy),
but I've always enjoyed tabbing Corb Lund songs. I was fiddling
around the one day on guitar and figured out the main riff to this one. I haven't bought the new album yet,
but this song was one that grew on me after multiple listens, so I look forward to seeing what Corb has up
his sleeves this time around. As always, enjoy!

One note for the bridge: The G and A at the end of the bridge is played as barre chords.

Capo 5th(everything here is relative to the capo on 5th):

Verse 1:

D                                              Bm
Sometimes momma, it can feel real heavy when I think of the wrong I have done.
  D                                        Bm
I don't how I can carry this burden, all I feel is the weight of the gun.

The weight of the gun.
A
And the wrong I have done.

Verse 2:

D                                           Bm
I know this wasn't what you planned for me. Mothers have hopes for their sons.
D                                                        Bm

Verse 3:

D                                              Bm
My hands are empty, but my mind is filled with things that cannot be undone.
D                                                Bm
How many years since I've lifted a pistol, but I still feel the weight of the gun.

Chorus:

G
The weight of the gun.
A
Things that can't be undone.
G
The weight of the gun.
A
And the wrong I have done.

Well brass is heavy, and steel is heavy,   lead even heavier still.
Em                                         Em   Fm  F#m                  G     A
Heaviest of all is the weight on your soul from the blood of the man you killed.

Verse 4:

D                                        Bm
A concrete cell is especially tough on a boy used to Montana sun.
        D                                                         Bm
And the news that you're gone that the warden delivered, makes me long for the weight of the gun.

The weight of the gun.
A
And the wrong I have done.

Heaviest of all is the weight on your soul from the blood of the man you killed
