Title: The Cowboy Song
Artist: Thin Lizzy
Album: Jailbreak
Tabbed By: Durx (sean.durx@btopenworld.com)

There seems to be a bit of confusion about this one. Some people say it's in Ab, some say it's in A. The right answer: Both.

This song was originally recorded in A, as it's almost impossible to play properly in Ab, but somewhere in the editing the pitch has been tweaked down ever so slightly - meaning that to the naked ear (and guitar) it's in A flat. 

However I assure you that it's in (or at least was wrote and recorded in) A.

Anyways,

Intro:

As with the first solo, it's at least 85% right.
