Subject: CRD: Loretta/Townes Van Zandt

Here's another Townes Van Zandt song for you, the chords are simple, but
it's taken me a lot of practice to get the rthymns right. And if you pick
up the tempo just a little bit and really pound the chords, it's a real
rocker.

Loretta
Townes Van Zandt

C                     F       C
Well Loretta she's my barroom girl
F                        C
Wears them sevens on her sleeves
C             F       C
Dances like a diamond shines
F                       C
Tells me lies I love to b'lieve

G7
Her age is always twenty two
    F                     C
Her laughin' eyes a hazel hue
C                    F     C
Spends my money like water falls
F                        C
Loves me like I want her to

Well Loretta won't you say to me
Darlin' put your guitar on
Have a little shot of booze
Play a blue and wailin' song

My guitar rings a melody
My guitar sings "Loretta's fine"
Long and lazy, blond and free
I can have her any time

Sweetest at the break a day
Prettiest in the setting sun
She don't cry when I can't stay
'Least not 'til she's all alone

Loretta I won't be gone long
Keep your dancin' slippers on
Keep me on your mind a while
I'll be back babe, to make you smile.

repeat 1st & 2nd verse, 2nd verse last line twice, end


There's a different version of this verse on some records:

Loretta I won't be gone long
Keep your dancin' slippers on
Keep me on your mind a while
I'm comin' home, I'm comin' home.


And between each pair of verses Townes plays a simple bass run twice:

  C    F          C
|-----------------0----|
|-----------------0----|
|-----------------1----|
|------2-2-h4-2---2----|
|-2-h4----------4-2----|

Enjoy !
