How to play “Airport Blues”


First of all, don’t play it like in the video above. Just go get your guitar and play it right, as follows:


Well, I went down to the station;

E                           E7
I was feelin’ kinda sore…

Yeah, I went down to the station, mama;

                              E     E7
I was feelin’ mighty sore…

My woman, she done tol’ me,

A7                                 E
She ain’t gonna fly no more…

    Went downtown to see my cousin
    He plays guitar like a chainsaw buzzin’
    In the crowd I see his mom and dad
    I said,hey uncle,man your son is bad
    Sometimes,sometimes bad is bad
    I said cool is a rule but sometimes bad is bad

    Sometimes you have to be “Cruel to be Kind”,so when I watched your lo-fi video,I had to encourage you to work on your chops,man.
