Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Most of the song is quite easy, as it's a simple 12 bar blues.
You can play just the chords, but if you listen to the record that's not all.
Sonny uses one of his techniques (no idea how it works exactly) to create an amazing sound.


Intro: Am Asus4 (repeat some times)

Am
Air Force One had a heck of a view
Dm                                Am
Air Force One had a heck of a view 
Em                             Dm                    Am
Looking down on the patchwork of the blue tarp blues.

Am
I went walkin through the water sprung a leak in my shoes
Dm                                                       Am
I went walkin through the water sprung a leak in my shoes
Em                   Dm                          Am
that hole in my soul give me the blue tarp blues.
Dm             Am
I got the blues
Dm             Am
I got the blue blue tarp blues.

Am
There's a crack in the ceiling and the system too
Dm                                               Am
There's a crack in the ceiling and the system too
Em                        Dm                    Am
But we got full coverage of the blue tarp blues.
Dm             Am
I got the blues
Dm             Am
I got the blue blue tarp blues.

Solo over Verse Chords

Am               Dm            Am         Em
No it wasn't the weather that sank me and you
         Dm         Am                  Em
It was a bad mix of politics, greed and fools
      Dm                    Am             Em
That levee of lies couldn't hold back the truth
      Dm               Am
We're in deep but not out of the reach
Em
Throw me something, mister.

Intro again

Am
I'm gonna fly my colors and watch for you
Dm                                        Am
I'm gonna fly my colors and watch for you
Em                    Dm                       Am
Like a flag of hope, above the blue tarp blues

Dm             Am
I got the blues
Dm             Am
I got the blue blue tarp blues.
