Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Nice Bluegrass-ish tune from the 'Musical Chairs' Album for all redneck wannabes out there
Album track is played relatively slow but live they turn it up several notches. Best to 
slow and work your speed up. Listen to the track for the timing.

During the Chorus and bridge there are some minor steel guitar licks mixed with the 
and violin but I havent put them on here. They are relatively simple (3-4 notes just as the 
riff ends) so if someone wants to add them later then feel free. Alternatively 
you can just 'wing it' like I tend to do.


Main Riff:
This is played throughout the Verses 1 & 2 but is not played when verse 1 is repeated

Chorus Chords: Am  C  G


[Verse 1]
-------
G
Robin, Robin in the tree
                              F C G
Wont you come down here and rescue me
G
Cause theres someplace else I gotta be
                          F  C     G
And you can stand in for me for a while
G
Come on now hurry down
             F  C  G
No time to play around
G
I need someone to walk this mile
                F    C      G  
She jumped and said like a child

[Chorus 1]

Am                 C       G
Love is gone but now I see
Am                          C
You've got to capture me to set me free

G       F C G
G       F C G

[Verse 2]
G      
Miss Mina came to me in a dream
                        F    C   G
She said, boy come and walk with me
G
Theres someplace else Ive gotta see
                          F   C   G
So we strolled along the mountain high
G
She called me boy my friend
                    F   C  G
And I wondered if or even when
G
Id see Greta and my Rose again
                       F   C  G
The time has come for dealing

[Chorus 2]

Am                   C        G
Lessons learned and now I see
               Am           C           G
You've got to capture me to set me free

[Bridge]

Am      
       C           G
And I flew on the wings of a bird
        Am                C             G
And I whispered names of girls I once knew
          Am           C              G 
Then she disappeared into a fallen stream

Am   C

G F C G
G F C G

[Verse 1]
G F C G

[Chorus 1]
Am C G

[Chorus 2]
Am  C G

[End]

I'm not sure where you are coming from with your comment.

'Desert Mountain Showdown' is a completely different song to 'If I loved you'
