Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Looking forward,looking back- Slim dusty
Tune guitar down 1 step  Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb
The only tabs/chords I could find were rubbish so I sat down and worked it out myself.
This is a beautiful song that we played at my Dads funeral 
and is one of Slims finest works.The chords written are what you play, ignoring 
the drop in tuning.
The actual proper chords would be half a tone lower in name.
You could play it with a normal tuning but you would have to play the E in a 
high position and the open chord sounds better (I think).
