Lee Kernaghan  -  Country's Really Big These Days



There wasn't really an 'easy way' to tab the key change in this song...
You can either play without the capo, using barre chords for the 1st part of
the song, or use the capo and play barre chords through the 2nd part.
I decided to go with the capo....
The other way you could play this is to quickly move the capo up a fret (to 2nd)
when the key change happens, and just play the same chords all the way through.


Play this with a capo on 1st fret.
All chord names and shapes are relative to position of capo.
Real chord names are in square brackets below.
