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).

G
Well she looks like a super hero down on her luck
G
Surrounded by villains and the years are catching up
G
She's a dark eyed beauty and a dangerous fiend
G
She says dance me outside knocks the boys off their feet
C_____________________________________G
Aw Juniper, which way you gonna run now?
D________________________________________________________C
You stay on the run long enough and you're done, oh it's clear
G

C_____________________G
Ain't no need running round
C______________________________G
No there ain't no need for the boys down the street
______A___________________C
Honey I'm all yours right now
G

G
Well she walks like a panther but she's falling apart
G
She's gone half crazy with a stitched up heart
G
And she drinks like a sailor at the bottom of the sea
G
But she sings like a siren in the belly of the beast
C____________________________G
Aw Juniper, girl I'm back in town
D_______________________________________C

I woke up last week down in Dallas
G___________________________________D
Had an Indian maiden tattooed on my chest
E______________________________________C
Now I ain't saying she looks just like you
_________G_________F#_______E____________D________C
But when I sobered up and I saw her face I headed west
________D__________________________________G
Back to you girl, hell, I always loved you best

C_____________________________________G
Aw Juniper, which way you gonna run now?
D_______________________________________________C
You been on the run long enough aw girl, I'm in love
G
Juniper you're the one


C_____________________________G
Now there ain't no need being lonesome
C_____________________G
Ain't no need running round
C______________________________G
No there ain't no need for the boys down the street
______A___________________C
Honey I'm all yours right now

C_____________________________G
Now there ain't no need being lonesome
C_____________________G
Ain't no need running round
C______________________________G
No there ain't no need for the boys down the street
______A___________________C
Honey I'm all yours right now
______A___________________C
Honey I'm all yours right now
G
Juniper you're the one

Kind of sounds like key of G minor. That's how it all falls down on my guitar anyway.
