Gone Country - Alan Jackson
---------------------------
(Bob McDill)

As a source I used the submission of: theTone@stpc.wi.LeidenUniv.nl
(theTone)
of 20 Feb 1995.
He explains that the riff is not the correct picking, so I looked into
it:

               G                    D               C
-----------|----------3---------------------------------------------|
-----------|----------3-------------------------3-------------------|
-------0---|----------0---------------------2---------------------0-|
-0^2-------|------------------------0-----------------------0^2-----|
-----------|----------------2^3---------------------3---------------|
-----------|--3-----------------------------------------------------|

Play the riff between | and | 4 times. Use 3rd and 4th finger for the G
chord
in the riff (3rd fret B and E string) and leave those fingers there thru
the whole riff.

Also play the G chord thru the whole song as follows: E A D G B E
                                                      3 x 0 0 3 3

buying
           G                  C    D          (riff)
Says I'm a simple girl myself grew up on Long Island

     Em            D
Says this might be my last chance

           G        C            D

  Em                   D

But with the crime and the smog these days this ain't no place for
children
