Jackson Browne – Shaky Town chords
I was asked by a bartender at a bar that I play open mic nite to play this song the next time I come by. I tried to use the other version that was already on this site and I didn't like it. So after trying to listen to the original album version and looking at youtube covers, I came up with this. Hopefully you also prefer this version over the latter. Listen to the song if it helps with the rhythm and the chord placements. Also, be sure to rate and/or comment on this tab when you've made your final judgement.
