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

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).

Dodging Bullets

Submitted by Matt (Thanks!)

Intro

G C9 G C9

Verse 1

G D C9 D G D C9 C9

Well I've been dodging the girls like they were bullets,

G D C9 D G D C9 C9

And up til the time I met you I've done my best.

Until you came along and you took aim,

and your big 'ol twelve guage shells caught me square in the chest.


CHORUS

G D C9 C9 G D C9 C9

Now I've been dodging the girls like bullets from a gun,

It was only a matter of time til I got myself shot by one.

Solo over G D C9 (two times)

Verse 2

Now there's no way I can beat your six gun with six strings,

Even if I'm more charming than Butch Cassidy

Cause your faster than Sundance and I don't stand a chance

When the gun pointed at me is yours.

Hell I use to be fast but time caught up at last

And I can't dodge them bullets no more.


Repeat CHORUS


BRIDGE

C9 D

You've got me cornered got me all shot up,

Em C

make a try for the horses and hope you, hope you can't catch up.

Em D

Well I know I'll be square in your sights the moment that I reach that door,

C D C G D C D

now I've dodged many a bullet in my life I hope I can dodge one more….

G D C D (repeat three times) end on C

hope I can dodge one more..


Repeat CHORUS

End on G
