There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I have been looking everywhere for the chords to this song...
I finally stumbled onto this website: http://www.rukind.org
so these chords are not by me, but by whoever posted them on that site...
thought I'd share them with anybody else who was looking.
[p.s. if anybody knows how to play the slide part, please email me! (mickkwoodrow@yahoo.com)]

Pride of Cucamonga
From The Mars Hotel


A                       E
Out on the edge of an empty highway,
B              E
Howling at the blood on the moon,
    A                 E
Big diesel Mack truck rolling down my way,
B              A                E   A    E
Can't hit that border too soon.

A                     E
Running hard out of Muskrat Flats,
       B             E
It was sixty days or double life,
   A                     E
Hail on my back like a shotgun blast,
  B                      A
High wind chimes in the night.

D                       G        C
Oh, oh the Pride of Cucamonga,
D                           G    C
Oh, oh bitter olives in the sun,
D                    C
Oh, oh I had me some lovin',
      G             A               E    A   E
And I done some time.

Since I came down from Oregon, there's a
Lesson or two I've learned
By standing in the road alone,
Standing watching the fires burn.

The northern sky it stinks with greed,
You can smell it heavy for miles around,
Good ole boys in the Greystone Hotel,
Sitting doing that git on down.

Oh, oh the Pride of Cucamonga,
Oh, oh silver apples in the sun,
Oh, oh I had me some lovin',
And I done some time.

I see your silver shining town,
But I know I can't go there
Your streets run deep with poisoned wine,
Your doorways crawl with fear.

So I think I'll drift for ol' where it's at,
Where the weed grows green and fine
And wrap myself around a bush of that bright,
Whoa, on Oaxaca vine.

Yes, it's me, I'm the Pride of Cucamonga,
I can see golden forests in the sun.
Oh, oh I had me some lovin',
                D   A
And I done some time.
      G         D   A
And I done some time.
      G         D   A  G  Bm  E   A   E
And I done some time.

Matches the acoustic studio version on "From Mars Hotel" pretty well. If you listen to the song, he ends each chord by adding a suspended fourth. i.e. A to Asus4, E to Esus4, B to Bsus4 and so on for all the verses. Phil Lesh does such a "Grate" job on this song, why they never played it live is beyond me.

Plus there is like a little walk sometimes after the E A E part. It does match the acoustic studio version very well. Thanks for the tab man. Let Phil sing!
