Intro

C G Am X2

CBabe it sGeems like so Amlong CSince youG heard your favoriteAm song Fplayin downtown pFlaying downtowCn G Am CYa know itG seems like a wAmhile CSince the cGountry's been iAmn style FNow im DowntownF now im downtownC G Am FNever really understood why im here in the cGity Your in the fiCelds walking Faround Ive beenDm seeing too much trouble here and GI Here for yCou Ive been sGtanding here for dAmays CLooking fGor some kind of cAmhange FBut Ive had no lFuck to speak ofC G C G Solo is Pedal steel but guitar plays same rhythm

C G Am

C G Am

F F

C G C G

C-strum once Take a trip out of the heart C G Am--strum these three once lightly when the trains and troubles start FIf your downtown Fif your downtowCn G Am FNever really understood why Im here in the Gcity Your in the Cfields walking aFround I've been sDmeeing too much trouble here and GIm Here for yCou Ive been sDmeeing too much trouble here and IGm Here for yCou CBabe it sGeems like so lAmong CBabe it sGeems like so lAmong CBabe it sGeems like so lAmong CBabe it sGeems like so lAmong F FSo long soF long C a few points of interest..the part of the song immediately before and after the solo where the chords are played C G C G C you will hear what sounds like a slide so I play it like this
-0-0-0-0--3-3-3-3-0-0-0-0--3-3-3-3-0-
-1-1-1-1s-3-3-3-3-1-1-1-1s-3-3-3-3-1-
-0-0-0-0--4-4-4-4-0-0-0-0--4-4-4-4-0-
-2-2-2-2s-5-5-5-5-2-2-2-2s-5-5-5-5-2-
-3-3-3-3s-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3s-5-5-5-5-3-
-0-0-0-0--3-3-3-3-0-0-0-0--3-3-3-3-0-
So basically you slide the C position towards the G barred Chord to get that slide sound..the fingering isnt in the same form so youll have to change position fairly fast Also..any point in the song where he goes from an F to a Dm There are two notes you hit in between these chords youll notice where on the song when you hear it..its around the part where he sings "I've been"
