Sweet City Woman - The Stampeders


Thanks to the people from the Sympatico Forums who helped out with this!

The G-G5-Am-Aadd9-G-Gadd9 chord progression is played by a 6-string
banjo, tuned like a normal guitar.  It sounds pretty much the same on an
acoustic guitar.  You should be able to tell which riffs are played by
that guitar, and which are played by the electric guitar.

Verse 1 (with Riff 1)

Neighbours and friends

(with riff 1)
Like a country morning, all smothered in dew
I just got away to make a man feel shiny and new
And she'll sing in the evening, some familiar tunes
And she feeds me love and tenderness and maccaroons
