Intro

For the intro I use my pinky to slide on the e string and have my hand ready to go to the E chord quickly. Pretty sure that's how he does it. (Also if you kinda loosely strum it and hit the B string on occasion, it's not a big deal...it actually sounds good).

Verse

EHe took me down to the state house And he Ahurled that book at Eme And bein' in a cell is Alike being in Ehell for a Fman who longs to be fBree EI sat there and I wondered, just what Agave this man the Eright ETo leave me to rot here on this Arickety Ecot, just aB7 staring at the ceiling all Enight And AI couldn't help but think of tEhe words of my dear departed Pa He said, do the best you can, be a Agood maEn, but don't you never trust B7Johnny ELaw

Verse

EWithout any proof they couldn't Akeep me Ethere so they let me out B7in the Emorning EAnd that cop said, son, I don't know Awhat you Edone, but just Fconsider this a little Bwarning EI said, it must take a lot of nerve to Aprotect and Eto serve but I wonder what it B7would be Elike EIf you didn't have that badge or that gun or that unifoB7rm to hide Ebehind And Aalthough I feel, that this whole deal, EI got, was pretty damn wrong My conscience is clean, cause I'm Aa human Ebeing, And you're just B7Johnny ELaw

Chorus

Alright that's it. That felt like it took forever. I can't imagine how long its takes someone to tab out something like "Green Grass and High Tides." Cheers.
