Going to Tennessee

-tabbed by quinna@lafayette.edu

F#:  244322
A:   577655
B:   799877
E:   x79997
D#:  x68886
G#:  466544

For those of you not up to snuff with your barre chords, capo the 2nd fret.  F# becomes E, A  becomes G,  B becomes A, and E becomes D.
For D#, try this shape:  x-x-x-1-2-1.  For G#, lay down a power chord (4-6-6-x-x-x) or skip it altogether.  It's not too important.

Baseball season will be starting soon
But we have no baseball team here
I’ve got a house right on the river

I can see Arkansas from where I am

The dogs are gathered
And the birds are chattering

And the sun is setting on Memphis
And the sun is setting on Memphis

Medicine bottle collection on the window sill
Shakes when the cars go past on interstate fifty-five
You are standing above me
F# E D#
You’ve washed your face with that apricot scrub again

F# E D#
I’m glad I am alive
And your skin is warming up
And my skin is warming up
F# E B
And the sun is setting on Memphis
And the sun is setting on Memphis
