Song:   Buffalo Gal
Artist: Thin Lizzy
Album:  Shades of a Blue Orphanage

Tuning: EADGBe (normal)

This one didnt take to long. Thin Lizzy are using two guitars, and one of them is doing
a bit soloing and some riffs throughout the song and I'm not tabbing that guitar.

-Don't play the lightest e-string one the C#m-chord. It sounds better without it. 
-Let the final A at the chorus ring (or whatever you call it in english) Hold ivertfall den siste
A'en ei lita stund før du fortsett å spille. <-- That's norwegian for those who are.
-I'm not gonna set up the chords on the whole song but just on the first verse and chorus.
The chords are the same at all of them anyway.

E Buffalo Gal,
F#myou've had your fun
B AYour button's undone
Eand the time's right for slaughter
EBuffalo Gal
F#mYou're thirsty and there's no more water
B A ELike the lamb on the altar
C#mAnd it's sad to see you looking down and feeling blue
C#mTry your best to get on up and see it through
E F#m AIn a while you might smile and see the sun
B EOww, the day has begun
C#m F#m And Buffalo Gal,
A B E C#mthey're closing down the old dance hall
F#m AUmmm, Buffalo Gal,
B E A what we gonna do now?
