TWO GALLANTS – LONG SUMMER DAY

The song is played with capo on 2nd fret.

IMPORTANT:

- B is played like this (6th to 1st string): x214xx

- E6 is a normal E major actually, but you have to add some pull-offs from the 
2nd fret on the B string. Like this:

e ------0-------|
B --------2p0---|
G ------------1-|
D --2-----------|
A --------------|
E 0---0---------|


          E                 B         E6
Well, the summer day make a white man lazy

A  B  E6

      A             E
Well, all I've ever known is poor
F#m                E
Owe my skin to the country store
     F#m              E
Don’t own my walls, my roof, my door
    B
But he tells me I'm free

A                 E    
  But I fight the will to live
F#m                 E 
Hell might take but heaven gives
         F#m         E
It's the only one so I'll forgive
    B                  
And Im not the one to grieve


        E                 B         E6
And the summer day make a white man lazy
E                 B          E6
He sits on his porch killing time
  A             E                A   
I gotta work to feed my wife and baby
  E                B                E 
I work so god damn hard that it's a crime


      A                  E
Well, I went down to the polling place
    F#m                     E
The white men there just laughed in my face
       F#m               E
Saying boy, this ain’t no nigger's race
    B
You best get on your way

     A              E
Sir, I believe I've got the right
         F#m                 E
Said you ain’t got nothing if you ain’t white
      F#m                E
And I thought I said get out of sight
      B
Well, what was I to say?


        E                 B         E6
And the summer day make a white man lazy
E                 B          E6
He sits on his porch killing time
  A             E                A   
I gotta work to feed my wife and baby
  E                B                E 
I work so god damn hard that it's a crime


     A               E
When I was 'bout the age of five   
F#m               E
Watched my daddy burned alive
   F#m                  E
They cut him low and they hung him high
B
Swayin' in the breeze

A                 E
 The last words I heard him say
  F#m                 E                    
Before they stole his life that day
    F#m                        E
Was forgive them lord, they've gone astray
    B     
Now take me to my knees

        E                 B          E6
And the summer day make a white man lazy
E                 B          E6
He sits on his porch killing time
         Bm              F#m         A     E      
But the summer day make a nigger feel crazy
Bm                F#m               E       B
Might make me do something out of line


Intermezzo:
A    B    E
E    B    E
Bm   F#m  A   E
Bm   F#m  E   B


      A                E
Well, I don’t know but I heard tell
     F#m              E
Of a furnace below a place called hell
    F#m                E 
And who would catch me if I fell?
B
Who would pray for me?

A                E 
 But one thing I see for sure
     F#m            E
It's hot as hell up here I know
        F#m                E
And the devil lives right down the road
     B
It's all the same to me


        A                 B         E
And the summer day make a white man lazy
E              B             E6
He sits on his porch killing time
         Bm              F#m         A     E      
But the summer day make a nigger feel crazy
Bm                F#m               E       B
Might make me do something out of line


(all in barre chords)
       C#m               A
But if you should see my wife
                E            B
Tell her that I won’t be home tonight
    C#m              A
So don’t leave on the light
E                                  A
  I got a little business down the road
    C#m            A 
And If I'm dead by sunrise
        E             B
Kiss my baby girl for me
        E               A
It ain’t life if it ain’t free
  C#m          B         E6
I got a mighty burden to unload
