Song: I fell into painting houses in phoenix, arizona
Artist: Richmond Fontaine
Tabbed by: Jpencz (couchy@gmail.com)

Standard tuning
Capo 5th fret

The whole song he plays his chords with variations of the actual chord, taking a finger off and 

hammering on. It might not be exact but here is how I hear it, and sounds pretty good. He doesn't 

always do it, so just listen to the song and try to mimic it using variations like these:

      Em            C             G



verse 1:

Em                   G      Am     C

Em                   G             Am             C

Em                   G          Am       C
and i knew that the kid had never been paid

Dm            Am           G               Em

G                      Dm       Am

      Em             G             Am          Em
