J Roddy Walston And The Business - Boys Can Never Tell chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
The tabs I submit are ones I've figured out on an acoustic guitar, as that's all 
that I play. I think this sounds great acoustic, and since it is a softer song, 
might be the most appropriate way. For the F chord, you could use either 
1-3-3-2-1-1 or x-x-3-2-1-0. I alternate with both, as sometimes one feels more 
comfortable to transition into than the other. Get lost in it and do what feels 
right. Enjoy.

Intro - C for 4 bars (playing with the high e string held down on the 3rd fret 
doesn't sound bad for this part)
