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).

The Outsiders

G________________D
Drive around all day
D________________Em7
Nowhere I should be
Em7_________________B5
Don't know where to go
B5__________________Cadd9
But I wish you were with me

G________________D
Had a dream last night
D_____Em7
About you
Em7_____________B5
Didn't turn out good
B5_________________Cadd9
So I hope it's not true


Em7__________D
I wish I was with you
D______________________Cadd9
Wish I could hold your hand


Didn't go outside today
Until it got dark
Stayed in my room
Taping music for you

Old songs that I like
To remind her
Of her boy far away
Her outsider


I wish I was with you
Wish I could kiss your lips

The riff that goes here is somethong like this, but I'm not sure this is right. Let me know if yiu think yiu have it down.

Got a letter in the the mail
Another one from you
Read it five times and
wrote you one too

Says that I miss you
Says that I care
Spring will come soon
And then I'll be there


I wish I was with you
Wish I could sleep in your arms
I wish I was with you
Holding you in my arms

End with the riff

Awesome, I've only seen this once on YouTube where ben's sitting in a chair playing for a small
party. Great to finally see the tab, mostly what I thought it was. Thanks for the great site.
