                  Lay Me Down - The Dirty Heads (ft. Rome)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: jhayton
Email: mrbig_18@msn.com

Tuning: standard

This is pretty simple, the whole song only has four different chords

The chords are all barre chords... and are Gmaj, Am, Em, Bmaj. The chords are below:

             Gmaj            Am            Em            Bmaj
e|------------3--------------5--------------7-------------7----------------|
B|------------3--------------5--------------8-------------7----------------|
G|------------4--------------5--------------9-------------8----------------|
D|------------5--------------7--------------9-------------9----------------|
A|------------5--------------7--------------7-------------9----------------|
E|------------3--------------5--------------x-------------7----------------|

The intro, the prechorus, and the chorus/dancehall all only have the same two chords: 
and Am.

Intro:

Gmaj x4         Am x4
woooah-uh-oh  oh no no..etc


The verses are three chords: Em, Am, Bmaj

Verse:

Em x2
well this is how it starts
Am x2
two lovers in the dark
Bmaj x4
on the run from the one that they call sherriff sparks




Prechorus:

Gmaj x4
I said I wish that we could stay here
Am x4
But I feel our time has come
Gmaj x 4
We could ride out in the darkness
Am x4
hasing the rising sun
Gmaj x 4
We gotta back our bags this instant
Am x 4
We're heading southbound to the next town
Gmaj x4
And if we arrive so safely
Am x 4
Baby you can lay me down


Chorus/Dancehall:

{Gmaj x4 to Am x 4} repeat 4 times
"Lay me down..."


Bridge/Dancehall:

The section that goes "well you're my green eyed girl...etc" is the exact same chord 
as the chorus... but it is repeated 8 times.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That is the entire song in a nutshell... change the words for the different verses and 
variation on the prechorus.

The rhythm is really easy to pick up.. just listen to the song a few times.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At the end Duddy has a little solo/outro... here are the tabs for that:

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--/7----5----7----5---------5----7~----9----7----5---------5----7----5~-|
A|-----------------------7------------------------------5-----------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

He adds a little bit of flare to it... but this is the basis of the solo.
(it doesn't really matter where you slide from, pick AS you are sliding)
