First tab here!!! Love this song. Cannot find one single page with its chords, so 
I sat down and tried to figure it out. 
Sounds pretty close to me. It's hard to describe the strumming, but really easy to 
figure out from the song. 
There are some hammers peppered in the chords.


Artist: Lyle Lovett
Song: Flyswatter/Ice Water Blues
Album: Joshua Judges Ruth
