                |> Round of Blues (Shawn Colvin - Larry Klein)
|> I was watching Shawn Colvin on Austin City Limits and was able to figure
|> out Round of Blues, which, granted, wasn't all that hard. She plays it 
|> capoed at the 6th fret. At that key, the chords for the verses and 
|> bridge are just C, D, and G and for the chorus are F, G, and C. (I 
|> didn't notice if the other players were capoed; I was too busy paying 
|> attention to what she was doing.)

|> capo 6th fret

Here's the intro:  there's a synth chord that sustains for a while, and then you
play (remembering the capo) the following twice, with some syncopation on the last part the second time


The last chord is (I think) Fdim(9), which is the root, minor third, diminished 5th, and major 9th intervals.  This chord is used in other places throughout the rest of the song.

|> C       D  G
|> Here we go again
|> C       D        G
|> Another round of blues
|> C       D     G
|> Several miles ago
|> C     D       G
|> I set down my angel shoes

The following section uses the C-D-Em chord progression, _not_ C-D-G!!!!!

|> On a lost highway
|> For a better view
|> Now in my mind's eye

This last line sits on one chord, which is a form of C(9)/G, played as


|> All roads lead to you
|> Chorus:
|> F
|> So wherever you go
|>                 G       C
|> You better take care of me
|> F
|> This time
|>    G      C
|> If you're gonna go
|> F        G      C
|> Remember me and all
|> F
|> This time

Try this for the chorus instead:

  C/G             Fdim(9)
  So wherever you go
                      G     Am
  You'd better take care of me
  This time
      Fdim(9)/E   Dm
  If you're gonna go
            G      Am
  Remember me and all
  This time

Play the Fdim(9)/E as


-----big cut right here - play verse and chorus as above-----

|> Bridge:
|> C 
|> All this time
|>        G
|> I been makin' deals
|>           D
|> Shades of black and white
|>      G
|> On a Hollywood reel
|> C
|> All this time
|>        G
|> I been missing
|>              D
|> Something so real, so real
|> C
|> All this time
|>          G
|> I been a face in a crowd
|>         D
|> Now I'm living in color
|>     G
|> And laughing out loud

Play Em instead of G on the above line

|> C
|> All these names 
|>          G
|> For just foolin' around
|>        D
|> It's a new breakthrough
|> It's an old breakdown

The rest of the song is repeats of the above verses and chorus, so play them accordingly.

Let me know if you have any questions, or if you take issue with anything I've written here.
