A fast and ( for me) tricky fingers take of this classic "Railroad Blues" version wich I've played on this slightly amplified Taylor 314-CE, a good and solid guitar usually dedicatet to my acoustic trio duties.
Moving tempo under my foot there's a Shadow Stompi'Bass foot drum, a recent great add on to my set up.
I know I should have smiled at least once in the video, but the fact is that recently my monkey has left me alone on the tree... :-)
RAILROAD BLUES Sam McGee E capo 3
I went to the depots
I looked on board, ( x 2 )
Got good time here
But it's better down the road.
You can't do to me
Like you've done poor Shine, ( x 2 )
You took poor Shine woman
But sure you won't take mine.
Where was you mama
When the train left the shade, ( x 2 )
Standing in my front door
Wishing I was dead.
Two little monkeys
Playing up in a tree, ( x 2 )
One say to the other
C'mon let's make woopeee!
I met a little gipsy
In a fortune telling place, ( x 2 )
She read my mind
And then she slapped my face.
