Steve Earle

Steve Earle - Mercenary Song guitar tab

I saw the tab for this song and i thought that my intro was better.

I know that Steve will play this song in G , as he always does, so slap a capo on the old 2nd fret.

Intro:

--3-----------------------------------------3--------------

--3------------------------------(3)-(3)(3)-3--------------

--0-------------------------------2---2--2--0-2------------

--0-0-2------into G*

[G] Me and old Bill there we both come from Georgia

Met Hank down in [D] New Mexico [G] (Fill 1)

We're [G] bound for Durango to join Pancho Villa

We hear that he's [D] paying in [G] gold (Fill 1)

I guess a man's got to do what he's best at

Ain't found nothing better so far

Been called mercenaries and men with no country

Just soldiers in search of a war

CHORUS

We're [C] bound for the border

We're [G] soldiers of fortune

We'll [D] fight for no country

But we'll [G] die for good pay

[C] Under the flag of the [G] greenback dollar

Or the peso down [D] Mexico [G] way (Fill 2)

When this way is over, I might go back to Georgia

And settle down quiet somewhere

I'll most likely pack up and head south for Chile

Hear tell there's some trouble down there

*

If you've got another guitar playing open using the chords A D E, then play this fill as:

--------

--------

--0-2-4-into A

But if youre capoed at 2 you cant play the open E so just play F# twice, as in Fill 2

Thanks very much.
