Dave T Chords for Classic Bluegrass Nos (12) RE: Chords for Classic Bluegrass Nos 13 Dec 00


Here's the way I got it from a recording by Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs. They capo'd to the 1st fret so it's actually in G# (or A-flat) but here are the chords and lyrics for the 1st verse and chorus for reference.
Salty Dog

G E
Standin on the corner with the low down blues
A
Great big hole in the bottom of my shoes
D G (bass run to G chord)
Honey let me be your Salty Dog

CHORUS
G E
Let me be your Salty Dog
A
Or I won't be your man at all
D G (bass run to G chord)
Honey let me be your Salty Dog

I play E7 and A7 instead of E & A.
