Josh Ritter – Murder On My Mind tab
Ok so the song is pretty simple just uses the D G and A and follows the same chord structure through most of the song cept for the second and third verse... but even then its not that big a deviation! This was Josh's first song and my first tab so if there are any mistakes I'm sorry! Murder On My Mind D I'm awful sad to say G That my partner died last week D And I'm so shook up inside, G A I can barely even speak, D I don't know how he died G G It all came as such a shock...... D But i suspect he started feeling ill A D When i hit him with a rock D We where partners in a claim G Up in gold hill Idaho, D And we'd yet to find something G A Golden except the yellow snow,(first song) D G My partner joe god bless his soul A D Had hit the mother load D "Well I'll use my gold" said my partner Joe G To get my education D And if any is left when I am through G A I'll give it to sick children D Well i thought that Joe was crazy G G For to hear him talk like that..... D So i decided it was best for joe A D If he took a little nap D So i picked up a big old piece of gold, G And I hit joe on the head, D And joe shut his weary eyes, G A And lay down on the rocky bed, D "you take some rest my faithful friend" G Said i as joe lay down D And let me load this wagon G A With the gold that you have found. (This is my first song I'm not proud) So like the true friend that i was I loaded up the ore While my partner joe lay silently sleeping on the floor And when the gold was loaded And i was set to get to town..... I tried to wake my sleepy friend But he refused to come around. "Well if that don't wake you up, I know something that just might" Said I as i lit up A few sticks of dynamite, I settle down and waited, For them to wake Joe from his dream.... But alas i put the sticks to close and Joe blew to smithereens, And if Joes luck wasnt bad enough He lay close toe the mine, And when the dynamite went off, he was covered by mountain slime, Alas said I "all evidence Is gone of poor Joe's life.... All that left is a ton of gold And a little less dynamite, So now Joe rests in pieces, And i on a water bed, But it doesnt bother me a bit, That my partner joe is dead, For while some people might say That miner got the shaft.....(first song) I'm the only one that knows That Old Joe had a blast Hope it sounds ok!
