A Song For Robert Johnson

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		

  
Intro: Am  Em  D  C    Am  Em  D  C    Am 
  
      
Up on north to Detroit 
Em               D 
South down Fifty-one to Memphis 
  C                  Am 
A pistol in his hand 
                                      Em 
There's many a good man hidin' in the shadows 
     D                    C                     Am 
Just waitin' to give that boy six feet of land 
  
  
  
'Little Robert Dusty' 
          Em                 D 
He's been stealin' hearts so easily 
           C                      Am 
You should hear him when he sings 
                                 Em 
Double dealing at the crossroads 
               D 
Him and his guitar, they say 
C                D             Em 
Something's been playin' them 
  
  
Chorus: 
              A            D     Em 
Feeling, down in the fingertips 
  
Bold good feeling, woah, oh 
               A          G 
Like you could die for it 
        D         C 
And the bird that whistles 
        G         D 
And the bird that sings 
        G              C 
And the strong, strong heart beatin' 
        G             D      Am 
And the stretched out wings 
  
  
                                Em 
"Passion be a memory", she says 
               D                       C             Am 
Lookin' at the sheets where he used to lie with her 
                                 Em 
Holdin' a picture, she's livin' again 
           D         C                  Am 
Things she felt when he played for her 
  
  
  
'Little Robert Dusty' 
          Em                 D 
He's been stealin' hearts so easily 
           C                       Am 
You should hear him when he sings 
                                 Em 
Double dealing at the crossroads 
               D 
Him and his guitar, they say 
C                D             Em 
Something's been playin' them 
  
  
Chorus: 
              A            D     Em 
Feeling, down in the fingertips 
  
Bold good feeling, woah, oh 
               A          G 
Like you could die for it 
        D         C 
And the bird that whistles 
        G         D 
And the bird that sings 
        G              C 
And the strong, strong heart beatin' 
        G             D     Em      A 
And the stretched out wings that he made 
         Am            D  C      Em 
Won't so easily, won't so easily fade 
  
  
    Am                       Em 
The talk is, he still comes around 
D                               C                      Am 
Hey, from Mississippi when your road is dark as night 
                                       Em 
When nothing else gets to your sadness 
                    D               C                 Am 
He's pickin' up his guitar and he's feeling it right 
  
  
  
'Little Robert Dusty' 
         Em                 D 
And they stole his heart so easily 
                 C                     Am 
He was singin', "All my love in vain" 
                            
Killin' at the crossroads 
    Em             D 
But him and his guitar, they say 
C                 D             Em 
Something's still playin' them 
  
  
Chorus:   (## fade to end ##) 
              A            D     Em 
Feeling, down in the fingertips 
  
Bold good feeling, woah, oh 
               A          G 
Like you could die for it 
        D         C 
And the bird that whistles 
        G         D 
And the bird that sings 
        G              C 
And the strong, strong heart beatin' 
        G             D    Em      
And the stretched out wings  he made 
A                 D     Em 
Down in the fingertips 
  
Bold good, bold good feeling, woah, oh 
               A          G 
Like you could die for it 
        D         C 
And the bird that whistles 
        G         D 
And the bird that sings
