emily rain Lyr/Chords Req: L. A. County (Lyle Lovett) (6) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Lyle Lovette 03 Feb 00


sorry it took me so long to follow up, here, but there are two corrections i need to make:

1) after the coal black forty-five verse there's another repeat of the "and the lights of..." verse, identical to the first one.

2) the line "and i drove on through the hours" should be "so i drove on all the day long"

what a great song.

chords are about as simple as they get: alternate 1 and 4 (in the key of C, that'd be C and F) once per line until the verse where he shoots 'em, where you switch to a 5 (G) on the line "forty-five told them good-bye". come back to a C on the "bye". go nuts on the dobro if you have one. after that the chords are F C G C.

first 7 verses:
C - F -
C - F -
C - F -
C - F -

"and they kissed..."
C - F -
C - F -
C - F -
G - C -

last two verses:
F - C -
G - C -
F - C -
G - C -
