Title - The Real Folk Blues
Composer - Yoko Kanno
Performed by - Seatbelts feat. Mai Yamane
Album - Cowboy Bebop OST

This is the full version of the end theme from Cowboy Bebop. I found the Cowboy Bebop
OST Band score, but that didn't provide tabs or chord boxes - all electric guitar
parts were written in standard notation, and all acoustic guitar parts written with
chord names and slash notation. So I had to figure out an easy way of playing the
acoustic guitar chords. Here's what I came up with, as well as the lyrics and approx.
where the chords go in relation to them.

	|E A D G B e|
F#m7	|2 4 2 2 2 2|
A(add9)	|x 0 2 2 2 0|
or	|x 0 2 2 0 0|
D#m7(b5)|x x 1 2 2 2|
Dmaj7	|x x 0 2 2 2|
B7	|x 2 4 2 4 2|
E	|0 2 2 1 0 0|
Bm	|x 2 4 4 3 2|
F#m9/C#	|x 4 2 2 2 4|
C#7sus4	|x 4 6 4 7 4|
C#7	|x 4 6 4 6 4|
F#m	|2 4 4 2 2 2|
F#m7/E	|0 4 4 2 2 2|
B7/D#	|x x 1 2 0 2|
C#7/F	|x x 3 4 2 4|
Aadd9/C#|x 4 2 2 0 0|
B7(9)/F#|x 2 4 2 2 2|

One of the trickiest fingerings is the B7/D# - C#7/F. I play it using this fingering:
B7/D#		C#7/F
______		______
||2|||		||||||
|||3|4	slide	||||1|
||||||	up to:	||2|||
||||||		|||3|4

With the B7(9)/F#, you could probably just play a B7/F# and fill in the (9) with other
parts if you like.

  F#m7  A(add9)  D#m7b5  Dmaj7 (repeat)

-Verse 1
F#m7		A(add9)
Aishi-teta to nageku ni wa
B7			    F#m7	E
Amari ni mo toki wa sugi te shimatta
F#m		A(add9)
Mada kokoro no hokorobi o
B7		     F#m7
Iyasenumama kaze ga fuiteru

Hitotsu no me de kinou mitsumeteru
Kimi no ai no yurikagode
Mo ichido yasurakani nemuretara 

Bm   F#m9/C#    D#m7b5 	Dmaj7	  C#7sus4 C#7
Kawaita hitomi de dareka na itekure

The real folk blues
  C#7	 F#m		 F#m7/E
Honto no kanashimi ga shiritaidake
	B7/D#	  C#7/F	Em7	     D#m7b5 Dmaj7
Doro no kawa ni sukatta jinsei mo warukuwanai
	Aadd9/C# B7 C#7
Ichido kiri de      owarunara

-Verse 3 (same as v.1)
Kibou ni michita zetsuboto
Wanagashikakerareteru kono chansu
Nani ga yoku te warui no ka
Koin no omoi to kuramitaita

-Pre-chorus 2.
Dore dake ikireba iyasareru no darou
