Jackson Browne - Going Down To Cuba tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Alright, so this is my first transcription.  I'm fairly certain that all the chords are 
 From watching Jackson play this on The Colbert Report, he plays in drop D, but I think it
sounds fine in standard.

I've only listed chords for each part once, listen to the song for the proper changes 
timing.

rev 1 - messed up on some chords, should be F# instead of Fm

[verse]
G                           D
Sometimes I get to feeling low
G                              D
Wish I could just pick up and go
D         F#   Bm                Bm7
Somewhere new change my point of view
E            A           D
Maybe somewhere I donít know
G                     D
Toss the idea to and fro
G                               D
Not sure what makes it come and go
D         F#       Bm             Bm7
There it is again sweet music on the wind
E         A       D
Over the Gulf of Mexico

[chorus]
G
Iím going to down to Cuba someday soon
                D
Following that Caribbean moon
A              Asus4                D
Itís been too long since Iíve been there
               G
Iím going down there to see my friends
                D
Down where the rhythm never ends
A                Asus4               D
Where women wear gardenias in their hair

[bridge]
F#                              Bm
People will tell you itís not easy
F#                              Bm
Youíre not supposed to go, they say
F#                         Bm
They say that Cuba is the enemy
E                      A
Iím going down there anyway

[chorus]
Iím going down to Cuba to see my friends
Down where the rhythm never ends
And no problem is too difficult to solve
Yeah times are tough down there itís true
But you know theyíre gonna make it through
They make such continuous use of the verb to resolve

[bridge]
Theyíve got to deal with that embargo
Enough to drive any country insane
They might not know the things you and I know
They do know what to do in a hurricane

[verse]
Maybe Iíll go through Mexico
Old Jesse Helms donít have to know
Anyway all the allies of the USA
Travel to Cuba everyday

[chorus]
Iím going down to Cuba to see my friends
Down where the rhythm never ends
Where by comparison my trouble will just unravel
Iím North American, you know
Donít like to hear where I canít go
Free people will insist on the freedom to travel

[bridge]
Iím gonna drink the running mojito
And walk out on the malecůn
In one hand a monte cristo
And in the other an ice cream cone

[chorus]
Iím going down to cuba with my band
Weíre going to formulate a plan
Whereby we obtain that cultural delusion
If I told you once I told you thrice
Itíll put a smile on your face to see a Chevrolet with a soviet transmission

[verse]
I bet the country cast a spell
And there are things I think of still
Like the beauty of that woman that spoke to me
In the hotel nacional

[verse]
Iím gonna book my flight today
Iím definitely on my way
Just hold my place and Iíll get back in the race
And Iím back in the USA
