                     Georgia Moon - Shakey Graves

Tabbed by: syphaxe
Tuning: standard

...so the thing (and the beauty) if this song is that the dude plays it a little 
different every time (which totally means that you have every right to). And the 
timing/cadence is a little bit iffy.


These chords follow the recorded version on the "Roll The Bones" album with the 
capo on 5th fr (though live versions have the capo elsewhere).

Live, sometimes he throws a G between the F & c in the verse.

And he also uses an Am E F C progression to get back to the C from the F in the 
instrumental transitions.

...seriously everytime you play it, its a complete f'n roll of the dice...

...love this song...

It's hard to see the road through this rain and all the fog
C                   E7     F                    C

I guess in this case it would be considered rolling the bones instead of rolling the dice hehe
