Chorus: G (slide F# to G) Im Southbound G C7 G Good old road dont you get me down G A7 D Got ?????????????????? passing through this town G B7 Get to where im going by the break of day C G Not quite certain can't really say G B7 C D Aint hard to see the roads one way and its southbound (Stress roots of chords for that wonderful walkup....G, B, C, C#, D) Verses: G Yes Houston up to Memphis Good lord what a long hard ride Chicago to St Luois A7 D now you know that is more my style G B7 Been on the road for some time C7 G Got the Double Vision Gotta Troubled Mind G B7 C D Wont be long before youll find me southbound (Again, Stress roots of chords for that wonderful walkup....G, B, C, C#, D) I said Break back and a trainwreck Like a jam in the left hand lane Yes its holding up my production I'll hit up my southbound train Been on the track for some time Got the Double Vision Gotta Troubled Mind Wont be long before youll find me southbound I said no luck Atlanta I said last chance Tennessee I said settle down im southern bound Its home sweet home to me Yes I've seen the light and I do believe When i get down there i wont wanna leave Won't be loong before you find me southbound After each verse, the chorus starts again. Solos are played with the same chord progression as the chorus. Sorry if the lyrics are blank or incorrect. they are hard to determine from the version on Mountain Tracks Vol. 5. Ive found that playing G as a bar chord sounds better than an open G and makes that awesome soulful slide at the end of "southbound" easier to play, although the slide actually occurs on Jeff Austin's Mandolin. Enjoy and feel free to fill in lyrics/edit this one.
