                Title - The Real Folk Blues
Composer - Yoko Kanno
Performed by - Seatbelts feat. Mai Yamane
Album - Cowboy Bebop OST

This is the full version of the end theme from Cowboy Bebop. I found the Cowboy Bebop
OST Band score, but that didn't provide tabs or chord boxes - all electric guitar
parts were written in standard notation, and all acoustic guitar parts written with
chord names and slash notation. So I had to figure out an easy way of playing the
acoustic guitar chords. Here's what I came up with, as well as the lyrics and approx.
where the chords go in relation to them.

	|E A D G B e|
F#m7	|2 4 2 2 2 2|
A(add9)	|x 0 2 2 2 0|
or	|x 0 2 2 0 0|
Ebm7(b5)|x x 1 2 2 2|
Dmaj7	|x x 0 2 2 2|
B7	|x 2 4 2 4 2|
E	|0 2 2 1 0 0|
Bm	|x 2 4 4 3 2|
F#m9/C#	|x 4 2 2 2 4|
C#7sus4	|x 4 6 4 7 4|
C#7	|x 4 6 4 6 4|
F#m	|2 4 4 2 2 2|
F#m7/E	|0 4 4 2 2 2|
B7/Eb	|x x 1 2 0 2|
C#7/F	|x x 3 4 2 4|
Aadd9/C#|x 4 2 2 0 0|
B7(9)/F#|x 2 4 2 2 2|

One of the trickiest fingerings is the B7/D# - C#7/F. I play it using this fingering:
B7/Eb		C#7/F
______		______
||2|||		||||||
|||3|4	slide	||||1|
||||||	up to:	||2|||
||||||		|||3|4

With the B7(9)/F#, you could probably just play a B7/F# and fill in the (9) with other
parts if you like.

  F#m7  Aadd9  D#m7b5  Dmaj7 (repeat)

-Verse 1
F#m7		Aadd9

Bm   F#m9/C#    D#m7b5 	Dmaj7	  C#7sus4 C#7

	Aadd9/C# B7 C#7
Ichido kiri de      owarunara

-Verse 3 (same as v.1)
Kibou ni michita zetsuboto

-Chorus (same as first chorus)

Doro no kawa ni sukatta jinsei mo warukuwanai
Ichido kiri de owarunara

F#m7 (eight measures)

F#m7 B7/F# F#m7 B7(9)/F# (repeat and fade)

That's all she wrote. Literally.
