Thread Name: Chords Req: Outskirts of Town (Leadbelly)
Subject: RE: outskirts of town chords
It's your standard 16-bar blues. If I could remember the lyrics this would be easier, but bear with me on inexact:

[I]Now I'll tell you something, baby, as funny as can be
If we have any children they better all look like me [I7]
I'm gonna [IV] move, 'way out on the outskirts of [I] town
Cause I don't want nobody [V7] that's always hanging a[I]round.

In my case, I=A, I7=A7, IV=D, V7=E7, though I'm tuned low and it would actually be sounding in E.
