Subject: RE: 'Bully of the Town' - mystery word
This is pretty much the way I play the chords, in the key of C with walkdown runs to connect them. I usually capo up two frets so it's in D, to fit my voice. Fiddlers around here seem to play it in G because of double stop possibilities. I fiddle it in D.

(C) Have you heard about that (Cb) bully that's (C)just come to town He's (A)out among the (A7) poor folks, just (F)layin' their bodies (Dm) down I'm (G)lookin' for that bully and he must be (C)found

(C) Now I'm a Tennessee (Cb)rounder, and I (C)simply don't allow No (A)red-eyed river (A7)roustabout with (F)me to raise a (Dm)row I'm (G) lookin' for that bully and I'll make him (C) bow

CHORUS: (C) Well I've walked this levee (G7) round, round, round Lookin' for that bully of the (C) town, town, town Well I've walked this (F)levee (Dm)round (G)Lookin' for that bully of the (C)town
