About This Blog

I started this blog because the tabs on the Lucero message board kept getting lost when they switched sites. A blog isn't a perfect forum for guitar tabs and chords, but it now has posts for all but a handful of their songs. And, to the best of my knowledge, this is the only source for Lucero tabs that has been endorsed by an actual Lucero guitarist. Accept no substitutes.

Holy shit! That's how that goes... www.lucerotabs.blogspot.com

Thank you to the folks who have sent me submissions, suggestions, and corrections. Thanks also to anyone who posted a tab on the luceromusic.com boards. You can find me there posting as Boston Twang. You can also email me at lucerotabs@gmail. Submissions and/or corrections are greatly appreciated.

General Thoughts on Lucero Chords

Ben seems to favor chord variations that fret the B string at the third fret. If a C, Em, G, or A doesn't seem quite right, try:
Cadd9 (x32030), Em7 (022030), G (320033), Asus (x02230)

Also, I think he leaves the E string open on a lot of his D chords (xx0230).

D Riff for verses:

It isn't reflected in the tab, but he tosses in an up stroke before the hammer. So it's bass-down-bass-down-bass-down-up-hammer-bass.

D Riff
Hey Hey Davy Brown
D Riff
You weren’t born a killer But ya can’t tell it now
D Riff
Take that shotgun saw it on down
D Riff
You’re one bloody bastard Davy Brown
C
One step ahead of that hangman’s noose
G
Gonna take ‘em all with ya when they come for you


D Riff
Hey Hey Davy Brown
D Riff
Keep yer eye on the coin And yer ear to the ground
D Riff
Your Whitneyville Colt Cut a buncha men down
D Riff
A string full of ears for Davy Brown
C
One step ahead of that hangman’s noose
G
Gonna take ‘em all with ya when they come for you


G
Davy Brown, Davy Brown
D
Where ya gonna be when the hammer comes down?
A
Can you outshoot the Devil? Outrun his hounds?
D
Ain’t nothing to it but to stay above ground


Hey Hey Davy Brown
Woke up in jail for the last time now
Set a boy a fire shot another one down
It’s a dance with the gallows for Davy Brown
Dance with the gallows for Davy Brown
Don’t believe in Hell but he figures somehow
Even if it’s real it’s gonna spit him back out

Your tabs are flawless,man. I never thought I'd find a tab for this, and this one's just out of control good. Thanks for taking the time

Noah said...

Thanks for the kind words. I'm really glad that people are enjoying the blog.

David said...

Man, I am SO glad I found yr site...
It's really refreshing to find correct chords!

Thanks SO much...

Noah said...

Glad to help.

Jason said...

Love this site. Ben made me want to pick up my guitar again and your help is making it that much better. Have you tried Drop-D tuning on this one? Think that's what Ben's doing on the album. Thanks again man. Jay

Noah said...

Thanks, Jason. That's why I do it.

As for your dropped D theory, I think you're right. I resisted that idea because, to the best of my knowledge, Ben has never written another dropped D song, so it seemed unlikely. However, you prompted me to go back and check this live video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hG5i1YkwVU) where you can clearly hear that he's getting a D an octave lower than my tab. I can only think of one way to do that, so it must be in dropped D. I don't have tome to fix the tab right now, but I'll take care of it as soon as I can.

Thanks a lot for the correction!

Hey Noah, love the site, been enjoying the tabs for quite awhile, thanks alot. Just read this post today from Jason and went back with drop D in mind and I think the G and the walkdown on the line "Gonna take em all with ya when they come for you" is
