Johnny Copeland – Flying High Live Acoustic tab

http://www.allmusic.com/artist/johnny-copeland-mn0000817542

it's not 100% accurate i'm aware of that,
but it nails the main spirit of the song.

this is my first tablature,
and first try on learning a song without tabs or tut.
it was easy though thanks to the electrifying performance of the great Johnny Copland.



it's a blues in E

keep in mind, all the muting stuff it's a matter of feel. you can just stay with the chord if you like, or not hitting at all on those parts. but the rhythm just makes you keep strumming. Lyrics: here i sit in this room, me and my guitar and the blues seem like yesterday, everything was goin my way no one could have told me i'll be sittin here singing the blues today i was flying high, *** *** woke up one morning, i couldn't fly no more but it seems like yesterday everything was goin my way no one could have told me i'll be sittin here singing the blues today i was flying high, *** *** woke up one morning, i couldn't fly no more but it seems like yesterday everything was goin my way no one could have told me i'll be sittin here singing the blues today somebody tell me what a man to do when the world as took from him everything but the blues seem like yesterday everything was goin my way no one could have told me i'll be sittin here singing the blues today now i'm moving from state to state every time i eat i can break my plate but it seems like yesterday everything was goin my way-ay no one could have told me aaaaaai'll be sittin here singing the bluuuuuuueees today. Enjoy !
