Whiskeytown - Drank Like A River chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Based on the entire song and aligned with the song chart for the "Faithless 
Street" LP version so the timing and chords are set. The strum pattern for Chorus 
is slightly different than the Verse and the Refrain so listen carefully to for 
the variations. Also, it's a two guitar song. This is the main, driving rhythm. 
Great fun to play and to sing.
