Subject: RE: Chord Req: Sweet Mama Hurry Home
Hi, Gang,
Woke up this morning with the learnin' Jimmie Rodgers song Blues....
Here we go, D-28 in hand:
JR plays it in the key of F so.....first:
Up I went to C shapes on the 5th. fret with the trusty Shubb capo.
The jazz intro is as follows: F/C/A/D/G/C/...then
" I've been so /blue, and lonesome /too...."
Chord of C and then the single note of D# for 'blue' & 'too'( 4th. string at first fret with the second finger,while still chording the C, this lets you back to the tonic good 'n' quick.)
There seems to be a swift Dm on the 'wrong'in the first chorus & 'Oh, Baby'in the second chorus.
Leastways, that's how I hear it and would play it.
Still want all the words and other chords? Just say.
I'm going for breakfast, best wishes to you both in Oz & Missouri!!
