Dirty Heads
                  Lay Me Down - The Dirty Heads (ft. Rome)

Tuning: standard

This is pretty simple, the whole song only has four different chords

The chords are all barre chords... and are Gmaj, Am, Em, Bmaj. The chords are below:

             Gmaj            Am            Em            Bmaj

The intro, the prechorus, and the chorus/dancehall all only have the same two chords: 
and Am.


Gmaj x4         Am x4
woooah-uh-oh  oh no no..etc

The verses are three chords: Em, Am, Bmaj


Em x2
well this is how it starts
Am x2
two lovers in the dark
Bmaj x4
on the run from the one that they call sherriff sparks


Gmaj x4
I said I wish that we could stay here
Am x4
But I feel our time has come
Gmaj x 4
We could ride out in the darkness
Am x4
hasing the rising sun
Gmaj x 4
We gotta back our bags this instant
Am x 4
We're heading southbound to the next town
Gmaj x4
And if we arrive so safely
Am x 4
Baby you can lay me down


{Gmaj x4 to Am x 4} repeat 4 times
"Lay me down..."


The section that goes "well you're my green eyed girl...etc" is the exact same chord 
as the chorus... but it is repeated 8 times.


That is the entire song in a nutshell... change the words for the different verses and 
variation on the prechorus.

The rhythm is really easy to pick up.. just listen to the song a few times.


At the end Duddy has a little solo/outro... here are the tabs for that:


He adds a little bit of flare to it... but this is the basis of the solo.
(it doesn't really matter where you slide from, pick AS you are sliding)

 *                    *
*   | /   slide up |   *
*   | ~   vibrato  |   *
 *                    *
