Willie uses a hammer-on on the 5th string, 2nd fret while playing an

alternating bass in an E chord throughout the song. At the end of the

verses and chorus he has a riff that I will try to tab out here.I will

also label where this riff occurs by this (riff)

Very fast

E

Last night I came home

A E

And I knocked on my door

And I called to my love

B7

As I oft' had before

E

I knocked and I knocked

A E

No answer there came

No kisses to greet me

B7 E

No voice to call my name (riff)

Chorus:

E

And I couldn't believe it was true, Oh Lord

A E

I couldn't believe it was true (riff)

My eyes filled with tears and I must've aged 10 years

B7 E

And I couldn't believe it was true (riff)

The shock was so great

I am quivering yet

And I'll try to forgive

But I cannot forget

My heartbreakin' loss

Is another man's gain

Her happiness always

I hope will remain (riff)

Chorus
