Way Over Yonder In The Minor Key Chords

   
(Lyrics by Woody Guthrie)

B                              E
I lived in a place called Okfuskee
E                                   B
And I had a little girl in a holler tree
B                                   E
I said, little girl, it's plain to see,
E                                    B
There ain't nobody that can sing like me
F#                            G#m
Ainít nobody that can sing like me

She said it's hard for me to see
How one little boy got so ugly
Yes, my luttle girly, that might be
But there ain't nobody that can sing like me
Ain't nobody that can sing like me

E                           B
Way over yonder in the minor key
F#                          G#m7
Way over yonder in the minor key
F#                               G#m
There ain't nobody that can sing like me

We walked down by the Buckeye Creek
To see the frog eat the goggle eye bee
To hear that west wind whistle to the east
There ain't nobody that can sing like me

Oh my little girly will you let me see
Way over yonder where the wind blows free
Nobody can see in our holler tree
And there ain't nobody that can sing like me

(Chorus)

Her mama cut a switch from a cherry tree
And laid it on the she and me
It stung lots worse than a hive of bees
But there ain't nobody that can sing like me
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/billy_bragg_and_wilco/way_over_yonder_in_the_minor_key_crd_ver_4.html ]
Now I have walked a long long ways
And I still look back to my tanglewood days
I've led lots of girls since then to stray
Saying, ain't nobody that can sing like me.


(Chorus)

Notes:
Not say that these are the exact chord forms from the record, but using a half barre is
easier to play, and kinda replicates the higher pitched mandolin sound. Not using a capo
lets you slide down to the 2nd fret for the F#. Playing the full barre chords on the F# 
and G#m, seems to fit with the song, which has a lower feel in this section. At least to
me. The other thing I like to do is use the half barre at the 4th fret (G#m7) as a 
transition between the B and E chords, 1 strum on the 4th fret barre, then fret the next chord.
