                    Chewing Gum - The Carter Family
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a catchy little number by the Carter Family.  This is my attempt at a tab
for this song as played on disc 1 of the In the Shadow of Clinch mountain boxset.

This song in the key of E. It seems that this is played out of the F position
with the guitar tuned down 1/2 step.

Tuning: 1/2 step down (D#G#C#F#A#D#)


Riff 1 (played during verses):

   F          C                      F
e|----1------|----0----0------------|----1--1-1--|
B|----1------|----1----1------------|----1--1-1--|
G|----2------|----0----0------------|----2--2-2--|
D|--3----2-0-|-------2---------0-2--|--3---------|
A|-----------|--3---------3-3-------|------------|
E|-----------|----------------------|------------|
    3 +  4 +    1 +  2 +  3 +  4 +     1 +  2 +    


Riff 2 (played during chorus):

   F          C                      F
e|----1------|----0----0------------|----1--1-1--|

    3 +  4 +    1 +  2 +  3 +  4 +     1 +  2 +       


F                   C                          F
Mama sent me to the spring, she told me not to stay
F                     C                                     F
I fell in love with a pretty little girl, and could not get away


[Chorus]
F               C                    F
Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum
F               C                    F
Chawing chewing gum, chewing chawing gum


First she give me peaches, next she give me pears
Next she give me fifty cents, kissed me on the stairs

[Chorus]

Mommy don't 'low me to whistle, poppy don't 'low me to sing
They don't 'low me to marry, I'll marry just the same

[Chorus]

I wouldn't have a lawyer, I'll tell you the reason why
Every time he opens his mouth he tells a great big lie

[Chorus]

I wouldn't have a doctor, I'll tell you the reason why
He rides all over the country and makes the people die

[Chorus]

I wouldn't have a farmer, I'll tell you the reason why
Because he has so plenty to eat, 'specially pumpkin pie

[Chorus]

I took my girl to church last night How do you reckon she done?
She walked right up in the preacher's face and chewed her chewing gum

[Chorus]
