T for Texas

Du er her

Jimmie Rodgers var country musikkens fader. Hans musik kan beskrives som glad blues. Hans spillestil er baseret på de samme idéer som de gamle bluesmænd. Lidt strumt, lidt fingerpicking, lidt "glidning på strengene", osv. Han blev født i 1897 og døde i 1933. Og indspillede i sin korte karriere et hav af numre, og skrev de fleste selv. Indspillede ovenikøbet sange sammen med Louis Armstrong og Carter Family.
Her følger T for texas, som en sing along song, dvs. du får "kun" akkorderne, og det anbefales derfor at du hører Rodgers egen udgave og strummer "along".

Sådan spiller du: T for Texas

Spilles gerne på en westernguitar. JR strummede "kraftige" akkorder tæt ved stolen, lidt aggresivt, men det klingede fantastisk på hans Martin guitar..

Well, 'T' for Texas, 'T' for Tennessee

'T' for Thelma, the gal that made a wreck out of me

If you don't want me mama, you sure don't have to stall
If you don't want me mama, you sure don't have to stall
'Cause I can get more women than a passenger train

Well, I'm going where the water drinks like cherry wine
I'm going where the water drinks like cherry wine
'Cause this Georgia water tastes like turpentine

I'd rather drink muddy water and sleep in a hollow log
I'd rather drink muddy water and sleep in a hollow log
Than to be here in Atlanta, get treated like a dirty dog

E            B7          E
Women make a fool out of me

If you're ever down in mobile be sure to look me up
If you're ever down in mobile be sure to look me up
And if your ever in Atlanta tell Lucille to go to hell

Women make a fool out of me
