Subject: c/cowboy_mouth/are_you_with_me_album.crd
Date: Fri, 13 Jun 1997 15:14:15 -0500 (CDT)
From: Pete Rasche 

First, note (I mention this most of the time below) that they often use
G=320030, not the usual G=320003 or G=320033.  They then use a cheating C
(C9?) by just moving the first two fingers down a string, C=x32030.  I
have seen them use this C and the normal C=x32010 both in the same song
before, but in some songs they always use the cheating C.

I apologize that I haven't yet typed out New Orleans and Peacemaker.  I
know that New Orleans is basically G and C (verses), and I believe some D,
A, or E.  I will get back to you on this one!  Peacemaker is hard to
describe, but the main riff is like G G G DD C C C DD G G G DD C C C...
(you'll figure out what I mean if you play along with it..the tricky part
is that there are notes being played over the top of the chord changes,
where the little D is stuck in-between the G and the C).  The chorus is
just G, C, and D also (you can figure it out).

"Man on the Run" by Cowboy Mouth
from the MCA album "Are You With Me?"
previously from the Monkey Hill album "It Means Escape"
Written/sung by John Thomas Griffith
G=320030    C(C9?)=x32030    D=xx0232   A=x02220   E=022100

The main driving riff is just G-D-C-G, each (I guess) one measure:

The 3 notes in the verses are the 5,4,3 strings held in a G chord:
(play twice each line of the verses)

The bridge is just the same riff, changing keys, so it becomes:

"How Do You Tell Someone" by Cowboy Mouth
from the MCA album "Are You With Me?"
previously from the Monkey Hill album "It Means Escape"
Written/sung by Fred LeBlanc
This song is really very simple, and only uses G, C, D, and Em.  However,
they use a cheating C (C9?) and put the 3rd finger on the 2nd string, not
the first, for the G.
G = 320030	C=032030	D=000232	Em=022000
Actually, it sounds fine if you leave the same third finger planted for
the Em, so it's 022030...this way, the 3rd finger stays planted the whole

G		 D		 C	       G
Tina says "don't talk to me like I am deaf and dumb
      G		      D		   C		  D(+pick str. 1)
we've broken down and broken up so much that I am numb
G		  D		   C		  G
talk about, don't shout about, the people we've become"
	  G		    C	   D	G
There's a little girl who's crying over here.

Note that lines 2 and 4 are different from 1 & 3, which are the same.

Each verse is the same.

	     Em		C		  D
Did you ever know me, I swear that I have tried
(repeat this pattern for all three pre-chorus lines)

G		    C		  D
How do you tell someone you don't love them?
G		    C		  D
How do you tell someone you don't care anymore?
G		    C		  D	       C
How do you tell someone you don't love them anymore?

Em	 D	  C
Fighting makes me tired
(repeat pattern for all four lines)


"God Makes The Rain" by Cowboy Mouth
>From the MCA album "Are You With Me?"
Written/sung by Fred LeBlanc
Use the same G as above(G9?)
G=320030	D=000232	A=002220	Bm=224432

  D			     G		   D			A
I should've known there'd be danger when I saw your face in the crowd
	D		       G      D		    A	      D
Now I'm trying to work past my anger, I should know better by now

(Repeat this pattern for next two lines of verse)
(All verses have this same chord pattern)

		G	A			   D	    Bm
I've known your sorrow, 	but everybody's tasted pain
		G	A			   D
I've known your sorrow, 	since God made the rain
	G	A			     D	     Bm
I see tomorrow 		when everybody tries again
	G	A			   D   G	       D    G
I see tomorrow 		when God makes the rain  God makes the rain

  G			D
I used to hold my fury, keep it bottled tight
A			      D
wrestle with the consequences each and every night
	 G				      F#m	         Bm
But if I put my faith in someone who was only trying to bring me down
  G		       D	       A
I wouldn't stand where I am standing now

The fade out at the end is just DGDGDGDGDG.....

"Take It Out On Me" by Cowboy Mouth
>From the MCA album "Are You With Me?"
Written/sung by Fred LeBlanc
(also from LeBlanc solo album "Dammit")

Simple!  Three chords:
F=133211  C=x35553  Bb=x13331

(FF C BbBbBb C FFF C BbBbBb C) riff played over
and in-between verses, in intro and outro

Bb      F               C
I'll be waitin when the storm is over
Bb      F               C
I'll be waitin when the fever is high
Bb         F          C
Share your anger, and swear that you'll never

CHORUS (let each chord ring):
Take it out on me
Let me see you smile
Let me hear you scream
For a little while, don't
Take it out on me, cuz there's
C            Bb
Nobody else around

(NOTE: Can be played with capo on 3rd fret, with D,A,G
 instead of F,C,Bb)

"Laughable" by Cowboy Mouth
>From the MCA album "Are You With Me?"
Written/sung by Paul Sanchez
A=x02220   D=xx0232   E=02210x   F#m=244222  G=320033


       A		           D
Well I stare at the hole in my hands
      A               D
And I watch you slip away
      A			    D
And I feel if I'd only done better then maybe I could
make you stay

(all verses same chord progression: A-D-A-D-A-D-E)

       F#m          A
Well I could, but I don't
      D            E
And I should but I won't
(n.C.)         A  D             F#m  E		    A  D A D
It's laughable     It's Laughable     It's laughable

(later choruses add another A-D-F#m-E at end)

F#m                        D
Having to tell someone goodbye
Having to find a place to hide

When all you feel these days
   G       E
is empty inside

A-D-A-D-A-D-A-D  etc....


"The Love Of My Life"  by Cowboy Mouth
>From the MCA album "Are You With Me?"
Written/sung by Fred LeBlanc
E=02210x   G=320033   A=x02220    D=xx0232

The love of my life is a shady lady
Tearin' me up just to bring me down
she used to be calm but now she's crazy
E G     A
I don't mind
Tearin' me down like a jungle monkey
Cuttin' me up like a jungle cat
she used to be fine but now she's funky
E G     A
I don't mind
(n.C.)				 DDD D G A  DDDDGA(X3)
She's not the love of my life anymore

    D          D    D        D     D  G    A
The love of my life takes my lunch to breakfast
D      D       D      D   G     A
nary a thought that a man might starve
    D             D        D   D     G A
she used to smoke dope but now she's X-ing
E G     A
I don't mind

(repeat the DGA/DGA/DGA/EGA for the four lines of each verse)

G (let ring)    D (let ring)
I hurt,         you walk
There ain't no looking for an answer when the
question's come and gone

G(let ring)    D(let ring)
I'll stay,     you'll go
There ain't no hopin' for tomorrow so I'll
pack up all my sorrow and find some hope that I can borrow

I'm just tryin to find my sanity and soul



"So Sad About Me"  by Cowboy Mouth
>From the MCA album "Are You With Me?"
Written/sung by Fred LeBlanc
F#=244322    B=x24442   A=x02220

Opening riff (played twice):

The verses are played over A F#(hammer note)-B-A-A riff as below:
F#(h.o.)= hammer-on the open E string at the 2nd fret (E|--0h2----)
then play B chord once and let ring, then an A chord twice.

F#(H.o.)          B(let ring)    A      A
There's a window  by the        bedroom door
F#(H.o.)     B(let ring)      A  A
That never   will             be opened

	     B                A
So sad about me, so sad about me
	     B      A                  B-A-F#
So sad about me--e--ee,  I'm sad about you

Middle riff:


      F# F#  F#      A  A  A A A
But I really must admit that I am
F#   F#   F#   A A A A
Glad that I am living
(repeat F#-A through bridge, end on F#)


"Louisiana Lowdown" by Cowboy Mouth
>From the MCA album "Are You with Me?"
Previously from the Monkey Hill album "Mouthin' Off (Live+More)"
(Also from Sanchez's solo album "Jet Black And Jealous")
Written by Paul Sanchez, sung by Fred LeBlanc (previously by Sanchez)
D#=x68886  C#=x46664  G#=466544  A#=688766  Gm=355333  Cm=335543

The main RIFF used throughout the song is:
D# D#   C# C# C# C#    D# D#   C# C# C# D#
The timing is difficult to show on this, but if you listen to the intro
you can figure it out.  Basically play a few D#'s, then C#'s, then almost
repeat the pattern but quickly come back for a D# instead of the last C#.

The little filler notes (FILL) are just a little "tickling" of the first
two strings (e and B) held at the 8th fret (just mash down your third
finger which should be on the 8th fret from playing the D# anyway).


        D#                FILL
Well my eyelids said four-thirty
        D#               FILL
and the radio clock said six
          G#            A#           RIFF
and I was thinking up a reasonable excuse
  D#                   FILL
I might have slept til yesterday
    D#               FILL
but in the shape I'm in
       G#                A#              RIFF
what's twenty-four hours more or less to lose

Gm                              Cm
I've burned up letters and I've burned up souvenirs
Gm                           Cm
And left no traces Lord that I was ever here
    D#      G#    A#                 RIFF
And I won't be Louisiana lowdown and blue

  A#                           D#
I saw a stranger smiling at me yesterday
A#                              D#
And it scared me almost half to death
A#                                D#
I wanted to hide I wanted to run away from her
A#                                             RIFF
Instead I closed my eyes and she wasn't there


"Jenny Says" by Cowboy Mouth
>From the MCA album "Are You With Me?"
previously on Domino/Monkey Hill "Word Of Mouth"
Written/sung by Fred LeBlanc
F#=244322  A=577655  B=x24442  D=x57775  C#=x46664

Main riff (repeated throughout song)
(hold hand in F# chord arrangement, lift 3rd finger for 4th note)

(riff X2 over each line)
Got no reason for the things I fear
the things that plague me when I see and hear
a dime's a nickel and a nickel's none
I throw myself into the Sunday sun

(riff X2, with F#, A in the background)
Summer Sunday when you went insane
You said you're going but I said I came
I'm throwin oranges in an apple cart
the ties that bind are tearin me apart

F#    A     B            D
Jenny says, turn off the radio
F#    A     B            C#
Jenny says, turn off the light
F#    A     B            D
Jenny says, turn off the video
A 			 C#
You beat yourself up, to bring yourself down
       F#         A	     F#      A
Let it go, let it go, let it go
       F#         A          F#      A
Let it go, let it go, let it go
	 C#       D	 C#	 E	     (F# into riff)
When the world is coming down on me I let it go

("F# into riff" means the F# chord is played in place of the first
 note of the riff)


"Light It On Fire" by Cowboy Mouth
>From the MCA album "Are You With Me?"
previously from the Domino/Monkey Hill "Word of Mouth"
and Monkey Hill "Mouthin' Off (Live + More)"
and Paul Sanchez solo "Jet Black and Jealous"
Written by Paul Sanchez, sung by Fred LeBlanc
A=x02220   E=022100   D=xx0232

Main riff (called RIFF below):


It's 4 AM, I'm drunk and alone
Tryin to call you on a public phone
I wanted passion I wanted desire

My heart is a flame that pains me if I do not
Light It On Fire (if I do not)
A	      E
Light It On Fire (if I do not)
A	      E
Light It On Fire (if I do not)
Light It On Fire



D  A  E  A	   E
	 How can I tell you
D  A  E  A	     E
	 Just how it feels
D  A  E  	    A	      E
	 How do you make love stay and
How do you know if what's stayin is real?
