Banjo tuned gdgbd for Key of G or….. )
For the "Listen,Sound Byte," Banjo tuned to E, played Key D Capo 1(transpose chords below, i.e.
G= D, E7= B7 et cetera)
(G) You can throw a silver dollar down to the (E7) ground
And it will (A7) roll…because it's round.
A (D7) woman never knows what a good man she's got…(G) until
She (C) turns him (D7) down…..So (G) listen to me my honey,
(E7) Listen to me…I (A7) want you to understand,
That (C) a silver dollar goes from (G) hand to (E7) hand, a (A7) woman
Goes from (G) man to (E7) man, in most (A7) cases, A woman goes from (D7) man to (G)man.
(D7) A (G) man without a (D7) woman, is like a ship without a (G) sail,
A (C) boat …with-out a (G) a rudder, or a (A7) fish with-out a (D7) tail
A (G) man without a (D7) woman- is like a wreck upon the (G) sand,
There's only (C) one thing worse in the (G) uni- (E7)- verse-- that's a
(A7) woman (D7) without a (G) man…
….(A7) A woman (D7) without a (G) man.
