Barstool Blues
SUBMITTED BY: Steve Nicholson

NOTES: Kevin Goodsell suggested this should be played with a capo at fret 2. Then you should play: E as a D-shape, B as a A, A as a G, F#m7 as a Em7. I think both versions sound ok, so you'll have to decide for yourself.



INTRO: E (x4) B F#m7 E I could hold on to just one thought for long enough to know B F#m7 E Why my mind is moving so fast and the conversation is slow A E Burn off all the fog and let the sun through to the snow B A E Let me see your face again before I have to go. I have seen you in the movies and in those magazines at night I saw you on the barstool when you held that glass so tight And I saw you in my nightmares, but I'll see you in my dreams And I might live a thousand years before I know what that means INSTRUMENTAL: B - F#m7 E - Once there was a friend of mine who died a thousand deaths His life was filled with parasites and countless idle threats He trusted in a woman and on her he made his bets Once there was a friend of mine who died a thousand deaths INSTRUMENTAL: A - - E B - A E (x8)
