Browne Jackson - Road (First Version) Chords / Tabs

Browne Jackson - Road First Version: chords and tabs for the song. Watch chords and tablatures for all songs of the singer (group) Browne Jackson. Other chords and tabs for the "Road" can find at the bottom of the page.

I have noticed a terrible lack of Browne stuff, so here is my little contribution. These are just the chords, but the original is played in finger picking style; if anyone is interested, I can try to transcribe it in TAB.

And al[G]ong the w[G/F#]ay their f[Em]aces all beg[C]in to l[C/B]ook the s[Am]ame...

[G]Gamblers in the n[G5+]eon, cl[G]ingin' to guit[G5+]ars,
[G]You write ab[G/F#]out the m[Em]oon and you're wr[C]ong ab[C/B]out the st[Am]ars...
