Hey y'all. I've really been digging Foy Vance lately. "Upbeat Feelgood" is a great jam. I've almost learned all of it via ear and live performance videos, but I'm having some issues.

The "I'm upbeat! Feel good!" chorus, I've got down, along with the verses up until the parts such as "Out of sight, out of mind" (or "My head's not heavy and my heart is right" in the second verse)

Also, the bridge is giving me grief, (even though it seems to be almost the same as the end of the verses),

Help??

Are you making a chord tab for the song?...

If so, why don't you put down what you have so far
As far as the chords you are using and maybe I or someone
Else can help with the part you are struggling on......

I was gonna, yeah. And that's a good idea! The ?s are placed where the unknown chords should be played. Foy's guitar is tuned down a half-step.


? ? ? ?

G C G C
I'm upbeat, feel good
G C G C
I'm upbeat, feel good
G C G C
I'm upbeat, feel good
G C G C
I'm upbeat, feel good

G C G C
Get out your bare feet tonight
G C G
We'll dance by fire till morning light
C F C
I cast all my woes aside
? ? ? ?
Out of sight and out of mind, oh...

(Chorus)

(verse chords repeat)
Come and sit down by my side
Darling look me in the eye
If you wanna ask me, now's the time
My head's not heavy and my heart is right

(Chorus)

? ? ? ?
And I don't care about the time
? ? ? ?
Light that fire, gonna heat that wine
? ? ? ?
I got one thing on my mind
A(?)
So pop that cork from the bottle, babe
D C
We're gonna drink it down fast and make love slowly

(Chorus)


Sorry...The chords went wonky when I posted the reply...They're still on the correct lines, just not placed where they should be...

Try this and see if it works for you:



INTRO:
G F C G

CHORUS:


VERSE 1:
 G      F         C      G
Out of sight and out of mind, oh...


CHORUS:

VERSE:
    G         F             C       G
My head's not heavy and my heart is right


BREAK:   
   G        F     D        C
And I don't care about the time
 G          F           C         G
Light that fire, gonna heat that wine
G      F        D      C
I got one thing on my mind
   A
So pop that cork from the bottle, babe
             D                     C
We're gonna drink it down fast and make love slowly

The one thing I found out is he plays this song
Many different ways... Seems he never plays it the same
Way twice...

The one above is based on the cd version I am guessing..

This one:
