Billy Bragg - Railroad Bill Guitar Chords

Billy Bragg

alternative country, alternative rock, anti-folk, folk

Chords:
Great interpretation of the classic Ramblin Jack Elliot.

I chose to submit the standard tuning version in D with capo 3, similar to John Henry's part in the song.
Billy Bragg dropped his tuning one full step and plays in G (see brackets).

[Chorus]

 D (G)          F#7  (B7)
Railroad Bill, Railroad Bill
G  (C)                  E  (A7)
He never worked, and he never will,
          A  (D)        D (G)
I'm gonna ride Railroad Bill.
        A  (D)            D  (G)
I wanna ride ol' Railroad Bill.


[Verse]

 D   (G)
Railroad Bill's a mighty mean man
                          G  (C)
Shot the light out of the brakeman's hand.
          A  (D)        D (G)
I'm gonna ride Railroad Bill.
        A  (D)            D  (G)
I wanna ride ol' Railroad Bill.



It goes on like this.

Have fun with it.
