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).

This has a chord I'm calling B, but it's really more of a G/B. It goes (x20030).

I done some preachin’ back in Texas before the war
Now I hunt heathens ‘cause it pays better than the Lord
I ride with Demons, The Devil at my side
Be it us or the heathens, we must all pay a heavy price

I’ve seen the hoof prints cloven in the stone
Now tell me What kind of devil trod there long ago
With a sack of sinners souls

There must be a place
Where this world and grace are made to meet

Judge Holden is the Devil and his Hell this Mexico
If Apache don’t kill us, Judge Holden will for sure
Holden’s more preacher than I ever was before
He preaches of reason, he preaches of war

I’ve seen the hoof prints cloven in the stone
Now tell me what kind of devil trod there long ago
With a sack of sinners souls

There must be a place
Where this world and grace are made to meet

He says this life’s a game Let’s play for
larger stakes S Well wait and see
