Alibi Chords

by david gray

standard tuning Eadgbe
no capo

   C#m : C#m2:  A  :  A2 : E : F#m : B :C#m/Bb:

    A* : Ewlkd : Awlkd : G#m :  E2 : B/E :

Ewlkd and Awlkd are both 'walkdowns' where the chord
changes by only one string for three consecutive counts.
rather than write out each chord name, just consider these
'walkdowns' as three chords that change only slitely.
note that the Awlkd is only used once, moves quickly
(half the time of the Ewlkd), and becomes the A2 chord,
strumming each chord once, affecting an introduction to
the "all nite busz.." bridge.
also, there's probably a better way to set up the E2-B/E
part that repeats at the end so that it sounds closer to
the piano's notes, but i like using these chords to just
pound out the rhythm and sing along.
