I had a request out a few pages ago. I finally found the chords on some site, as posted below.

G: 3-5-5-4-3-3
C: x-3-5-5-5-x
D: x-5-7-7-7-x
Eb: x-6-8-8-8-x
F: 1-3-3-2-1-1
Bb: x-1-3-3-3-x
Bb in chorus:

(G)Lido missed the boat that day he (C) left the shack

But (D) that was he missed, he ain't co(C)min' back (F) (Bb)

Verse 1:
A(G)t a tombstone bar in a juke-joint cae he ma(C)de a stop

Just Lo(D)ng enough to grab a handle (C) off the top (F) (Bb)

(G)Next stop chi-town. Lido put the money down and (C)let it roll

He said (G) one (D) more (F) job oughta (C) get it

(D)One more for the ro(Bb)ad (F)


(Bb)Lido, oh oh oh (Eb)oh

(F)He's for the money, he's for the show

(Eb)Lido's waiting for ano(F)ther go

(Bb)Lido, oh oh oh (Eb)oh

He said, (F)one (Ab)more (Eb)job oughta get it

(F)One (Ab)last (Eb)shot 'fore we quit it

(F)One more (Ab)for the (Eb)road.

(F) (Bb)


(G)Lido be runnin', havin' great big fun 'till he (C)got the note

Sayin, (D)toe the line or blow it, and that was (C)all she wrote (F) (Bb)

(G)He'd be makin' like a beeline, headin' for the borderline, (C)going for broke

Sayin', (G)one (D)more (F)hit oughta (C)do it

(G)This (D)joint, (F)ain't nothin' (C)to it

(D)One more for the road (Bb) (F)

So, aside the solo, this is supposed to be it. Any thoughts? Any suggested strumming patterns?

Great one :D
I never played this one before so I am feeling my way through.
First off I am playing open chords and it sounds good to me.
I am play DUmuteDUmute
Muting right after the upstroke (just like in David Hodges, Horse with no name lesson)
Seems to sound about right.
