Fort Worth Blues

I know I've had this one up here before, but I was playing this again today and added it into my repertoire. It is amazing how Steve Earle can write sad songs without a single minor chord anywhere to be found. This is straight GCGD with CGD on the alternate verses, though he capos up to the 5th fret to fit his vocal range (I capo to the 3rd or 4th to make it fit my vocal range, which would wreck havoc with a backing band, but this is a solo guitar song).
