Penitentiary

  		Ok this is a pretty simple little tune. Fun as hell to sing. Its  and it revolves  
around A G Shape (A Major) and A C Shape ( D Major) 

All chords are relative to capo on the 2nd fret 

Intro 

Hammer ons in the style of every great americana guitarist playing in half time. 


G, C 

Chorus 1 


G                     C            G                   C 
Hid a Batch In Frisco, I could't score a job 
G                   C                                 G                   C 
So I did the next best thing, and I learned how to rob 
G                              C                   G                   C 
I took that train to Houston, but i couldn't get away 
              G                                C                         G                
   C 
From the five and dime, about that time the constable would say

BRIDGE/Guitar Solo Keep Repeating the G and C chords, if you want to pick out the lead, its really easy stuff. I dont feel the need to tab out any of it. This is mainly a chord reference to learn the song structure and the chords....all of two of them :) verse 3 And I'm calling from a pay phone Down around Lawrence bend Got me a pardon son Gonna do it all again OUTRO Chorus, REPEAT AS MANY TIMES AS YOU FEEL IS NEEDED. Come on down To the Penitentiary Oh mama the law came crashing down on me Word up Matt and Shane, I was very bored on this particular tuesday. jon any questions [email protected]
