It was a thursday night in fall
in a bar in arkensaw
a long, long way from home
somewhere i've never been before

been out on the road for a while
with chuck john and jim
we were hoping for the best
we only had twenty people in

We made big rock, in little rock
we did the best that we could
oh in little rock, we made big rock
we did pretty good

John said nights like night tonight
show the true worth of a man
still doing it for the right reason
doing the best we can

playing a little show
to 20 people who really cared
is better than a thousand
who aren't sure why they're there

We made big rock, in little rock
we did the best that we could
oh in little rock, we made big rock
we did pretty good

They were wrapping up the cables
putting the bags into the cars
bar stools on the tables
shift drink in from a jar (?)

Said we needed a bridge
We made a major fucking bridge
and we got pretty far

We made big rock, in little rock
we did the best that we could
oh in little rock, we made big rock
we're that fucking good

Do you reckon that'll make it onto an album/E.P?

Chords for 'The Road'

Post by Lukus693 » Sat Feb 13, 2010 9:13 am

Can anyone help me.
I'm trying to get an acoustic version of 'the road'
I found several tabs that seem pretty good.
But it all falls down at the G#
I'm guessing its the right chord but it just doesn't sound quite right.
Just wandering if anyone knows how Frank plays this chord?
I found an acoustic video of it on youtube and it seems he plays it differently to how I would play it.
Any help at all would be great.

The Road Acoustic - Hosted by beta records
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuVC2Ie4Pdw

These are the chords as I have them at the moment .. which i dont think will transpose in the right places .. but you get the idea.


Am C
to the east to the east
G G# Am
the road beneath my feet
Am Am C
to the west to the west
G G# Am
i havent got there yet
Am C G
and to the north to the north
F C
never to be caught
F C
to the south to the south
G G# Am
my time is running out

afternoon everyone,

I got my first guitar this Christmas and have been trying to teach myseelf bits and pieces since then and can now strum through a couple of basic basic songs, Songbird etc. I really want to start adding some Frank songs to my repitoire, so just thought I'd ask what songs would you all suggest starting with? The strumming on some sound quite difficult but I'm sure I could pick it up if the chords weren't too tough! I'd especially love something from Love, Ire & Song.

thanks in advance,

charlie
