Pay Attention
The Wood Brothers

This song is in the key of C major and is 3/4 time.
He uses pretty standard chord voicings.  The only one that
might be foreign to some would be the Gm9 which is played like this:

E|--5--|B|--3--|G|--3--|D|--5--|A|--5--|E|--3--|
I usually play it without the root but thatís just my preference. Not sure how Oliver plays it each time through. Anyhow, hereís the song... Intro: 3/4 || C | C | Am | G | F | | Bb | Am | G | G || (Listen to CD for proper strumming and timing) VERSE:
