Need Tab for Guy Clark Stuff

I havn't been to the Mudcat in a while but hello everyone. I'm looking for the Tab to some Guy Clark songs, inparticularly "LET HIM ROLL" which should be the same as "THE RANDALL KNIFE". Is Dark River still hanging out here?

That's a good song Picker. I see you also noticed that it has the same tune a the Randall Knife song. I just can't get enough of Guy, he's a great writer,IMO. I can't help you though, as I just started working on it myself...

Hey longhair, nice to meet you. I've got most of it figured out. I know it is capoed on the second fret but there are a few places I can't quite get down. I'm also wondering if there isn't a string tuned open like Guy does on so much of his stuff.Like you, I can't get enough of his work. I'm trying to find out if he is going to be at Merlefest this year but haven't been able to find that out yet either. Nice talking to you....Picker!!

Long as the topic is Guy, might anyone have the chords for "Hank Williams Said It Best"?

And I expect to be in Austin in March and I am gonna go to the Chili Parlour and find out just what a "mad dog margarita" is!

Jeremiah, if I were still a drinkin' man, I'd be right there beside you. You know a "maddog margarita" has to be good!!! :-) Sorry can't help you on the other..

Picker, Guy does like to throw them off tuned strings in doesn't he!!!

I regret I can't offer any help on your search, but this might help you figure out some of his songs. When I saw him in concert, I learned a nifty little variation to drop D tuning. Instead of dropping the low E to a D, He put a Shubb capo on the second fret covering only the five bottom strings and finger picked several tunes in that tuning. I guess that would be called a capo'd open E string tuning. I play around with it and find it a nice change and requires a minimal re-tuning effort.

Sorry, that clicky thing won't take you there. I don't no why - I'm sure I set it out correctly. Anyhow, here's the URL for you to copy and paste:

Hi, Picker. Try:

and

http://www.beatupford.com/tmta/

Despite what the headings say, tabs are rare (saved for an occasional riff or two), but all the chords are there.

Hello Tiger and Grubby; Tiger, thanks for the url's, I will check them out. And Grubby, I received 'Cold Dog Soup" for Christmas. You're right, Good Stuff. In my opinion Guy is the best song writer/story teller alive....Picker!
