I've looked everywhere for a tab of this and can't find anything. I was hoping you folks over here have something.

Thanks for any help!

Is this the one you want.... Unfortunately there are two things...I can't find a version other then live on you tube and secondly I can't find the lyrics.... I can give you the chords more then likely for the song but then it would be all up to you to arrange them... If you notice he plays with the capo I believe on the 4th fret possibly the 5th from this video

Yep, that's the one. Having the chords would be fantastic. But yeah, it's hard to find much about the song. My friend wants to sing it for a show we're having at my school and wants me to play it for him.

I really appreciate the help!

If you can somehow get me the lyrics to the song then I can do the chords for you... I prefer to play sometimes without capo... But if you want me to do it with the capo on the 4th fret like he does that isn't a problem... Let me know about the lyrics... I guess you will need to get them anyway since your friend will need them to sing the song ... So post them here when you get them and I will do the song ok

Sure thing.

Do you remember the day we met?
My dad was there
And you made me so nervous
Ten bucks in the tank and a bottled map
Interstate love song in the tape deck and off we went

You were my Jessie Jane
I was your outlaw Josey Wales
And I'm sorry that we couldn't make it last
I never wanted it to end

Do you remember the day we left?
I promised you that'd we never go back
We were livin off romance and chasing down sunsets
Sleeping under stars in states we've never been

You were my Jessie Jane
I was your outlaw Josie Wales
And I'm sorry that we couldn't make it last
I never wanted it to end

We were an authentic couple
Always on the back of a carton of milk
We were coming of age
Trying to find ourselves
And when I look back on those days
I wish we had been a little more fortunate
Cause we still would've been running today
If the car hadn't broken down

You were my Jessie Jane
I was your outlaw Josey Wales
And I'm sorry that we couldn't make it last
I never wanted it to end

You can do it with the capo or without. Either would be great.

Thanks!

Ah sweet! Sounds great. Now I just have to figure out the picking.

Thank you so much!

I'll finish the entire song on Monday..maybe late tonight if I get a chance... So I will post the entire song tomorrow...
The E Em E part is simply lifting the one finger from the E chord to get that Em and back to the E again..

Also, the Ab C#m is a real fast change as you can hear it in the song....

Like I said I will finish the entire song for you..ok

Remember this is based on the you tube video that I have shown you ok....mainly because on some of the others it may sound a little different... I like it this way best....

Sounds great! My bud will be stoked.

I really appreciate it. Thanks so much!

Oh, and for those wondering, the basic pattern that he picks around is as follows:

**Serious props to Don Czarski for providing the chords, probably wouldn't have gotten this without them. Use the chords he provided for timing, and listen to the video for rhythm**

Beginning with the C#m you pick the fifth, third, fourth then second (play twice)

Then with the A barre you go sixth, third, fourth, second (play twice)

Then with the E you do sixth, third, fourth, second (play about 3 times, depends how you time the jump to Ab) It sounds like he may hit second then third quickly before he shifts to the Ab, but that's up to you

You then quickly jump to Ab and go sixth, third, fourth, (optional second) (play once)

You play all that through the whistling, then on the last Ab, you hit sixth, then second&third together

Then on the C#m you hit fifth, then second&third together, then third&fourth together

Then A barre you hit sixth, then third&fourth together, then second&third together

On the E you hit sixth, fifth, open fourth hammered on to first fret, fifth, fourth third

Then move back to the Ab and repeat

On the part where he goes from E to A to Ab, you stop at the hammer on of the E and move to the A and hit fifth then second&third together, then slide down to the Ab and use the same picking pattern

Before the chorus, you go from the A barre to an Am (open chord). You just finish the picking with the A barre and then hit two and three together on the Am

I prefer to just strum the chorus and bridge, but he seems to use the same picking pattern for the chords during the chorus, just a slightly different rhythm. On the two E's that he plays in the chorus, he just slowly strums down on the E from the sixth down to the third

*This isn't exactly how he plays it, but it sounds pretty close and leaves some room for adding your own sound. If anyone has any corrections or have a way that sounds better or know exactly how he plays it, I would really appreciate the post.
