Tall Tale Songs
You can certainly sing the songs from Tall Tales of the Wild West (And a Few Short Ones) without accompaniment. In fact, we hope you do! But here are some suggested chords to use should you be interested. Because of copyright restrictions, I can not include the entire set of lyrics here. Sorry.

The backslash marks indicate the number of measures for you should stay on that chord
