Song: The Boys are Back in Town
Band: Thin Lizzy
Tabbed By: Leo B.

Well I just figured this song out. Not perfect but it should get you started.
I'm too lazy to do the solo cause it's not that good anyways, if you wanna play 
good solo's don't rely on Thin Lizzy.
I love this song though.

Intro:


e:---------------------------------------------|
B:---------------------------------------------|
G:----------------------------------------6----| play this 4 times
D:---6------------------------------8-----6----|
A:---6-----6--8--8--8--6----6--8----8-----4----|
E:---4--------------------8---------6----------|
    G#5    P.M---------!           A#5   C#5


Verses(yes, all of them): I'm not gonna do the exact thing. I'll just give the chords
        you figure out the patterns.

 





 Riff 1: Play this goodie after every chorus. Listen to the song to get the right rythm...

From: peacock@che.und.ac.za (Mr Stephen Peacock - PG)
Subject: CRD: Thin Lizzy, "Cowboy Song"

This is the chord pattern and riff as I vaguely remember it from the album "
Live and Dangerous" ....

The chord pattern is as follows :

G#   Cm   Fm   F D#

These are all barre chords (as I play it), on the following frets 
respectively ...  4, 3, 1, 8, 6

(Now, since this comes from memory, the last two chords [F & D#] may 
actually by D# and C#, but I doubt it - try it with the song and see how it 
turns out)

The riff is played simultaneously by two guitars (an octave apart) to give 
that distinctive Thin Lizzy sound that has been copied by so many bands (
such as Iron Maidon) [don't flame me, I don't really know who first came up 
with this sound]

I have only tabbed the higher riff - work out the lower one yourself - if I 
remember rightly, it can be played around a C# power chord :

   C# power chord =eX
BX
GX
D6
A4
EX

This TAB transcription was created using TAB MASTER version 1.0

          (4)                   (3)                  (1)         (8)(6)
          G#                    Cm                   Fm           F  D#
e:---------------------|---------------------|--------------------------|-|
B:--9--9-----9---------|--9--9-----9---------|--9--9-----9-----9--------|-|
G:---------------------|---------------------|--------------------------|-|
D:--------11----11-11--|--------10----10-10--|--------8-----10----8-----|-|
A:---------------------|---------------------|-----------------------10-|-|
E:---------------------|---------------------|--------------------------|-|


The chord pattern is shown following the riff, with the frets to barre shown 
above the chord, in brackets.
The last 10 on the A string at the end of the tab may actually be an 11 if 
my memory is foggy - try it out and correct as necessary. I'll post an 
updated and corrected version of this song when I've checked my records at 
home. I will also post some other Thin Lizzy stuff shortly.
