Forever Summer

An original summer song --- think Beach Boys. Even I had trouble singing this in the original key, after it modulates up, so I added a version in G. I think I can handle it capo'd on 3; 2 may be better. (modified 4/16/2013).

Take It To The Limit

Another Eagles classic. Here in G original was in B, so use capo on 4 to play along with the record. Added by request. Some chord corrections. Thanks FiL.

Sweet Virginia

This is a favorite Rolling Stones song of mine from Exile on Main Street. (Now in correct key.)

I'm Yours

Jason Mraz's recent hit. Great song but a bit of a challenge to sing with all the scat improvisation. The single was in B but Jason sometimes performs it live in A like this version. Added a version in D as well.

I Shall Be Released

There are many ways to play this Dylan song. This version is similar to the way Jerry Garcia played it.

Wagon Wheel

Old Crow Medicine Show song partially based on an unreleased Bob Dylan fragment. We will do the song in the key of A, but I've also included a version in G for those who want to capo up to the second fret and avoid the F#m.

Fire And Rain

by James Taylor. Added to celebrate my going to see JT (and Carole King) next week. JT plays it in C using a capo on the third fret.

from Paul Simon's first solo album. I may have to break out my recorder for the solo.

The Mountain

From the acoustic album Steve Earle recorded with the Del McCoury Band, this miner's lament was later covered by the Band's Levon Helm in a very different arrangement. Uploaded by request.

This is a great alt-country song from the Old '97s. I play it with G chords, capoed on the third fret so it is in Bb. [1/15/2010: Minor formatting changes to make it easier to follow.]

You Can't Get That Stuff No More

A fun little blue popularized by Tampa Red. This version is based on the cover by Barrence Whitfiled and Tom Russell from their excellent "Hillbily Voodoo" collaboration from 1993.

Bob Cole asked for originals, so here's one I played right after dinner at the last Mannion's meetup.

I Hear Them All

Another fine song from Old Crow Medicine Show, added by request.

Every Day

A great Buddy Holly hit, covered by James Taylor in 1985. The James Taylor version is more complicated (and a whole-step higher), so I went for the simpler Buddy Holly version. The first verse is a cappella, accompanied only by light percussion.

Shower the People

Fil and I talked about this James Taylor hit from 1976 at Mannion's last week. I haven't worked out the guitar solo yet (perhaps someone else can), but I wanted to get it posted before this Sunday's meetup.

My Girl

Seeing "Under the Boardwalk" in the files made me think of this song. Fun for a group to belt out the chorus! Reformated as a pdf. Change to key of C like the Temptation original. Added solo and change to key of D for last verse and chorus.

I Won't Back Down
