Midnight Rider - Allman Brothers
Lyrics from cs.uwp.edu
CRDs by Steve Vetter

This is all probaby wrong and there really are two guitars, one
playing the riff ad infinitum and the other plays the chords.
Maybe.  Anyway I figured this out so no guarantees!  Start by
fingering a D chord for the riff (It makes it much easier).
 D  D U D U D   (I think, I am without guitar so....)
------------------------
----3-3-3---3-----------
----------2-------------
-0----------------------
------------------------
------------------------

(You can also strike several strings at the same time and it'll
sound good, just follow the picking pattern)

-----------------------------------------------
Douglas Ingalls suggests the following:
>-------------------------------------------------2-------------- 
>-------------------------------------------------3-------------- 
>-------------------------------------------------2-------------- 
>-----------------0-----0--------------0--------0-------------- 
>--0-----3---------------------3------------------------------- 
>----------------------------------------------------------------- 
This, as was mentioned, can all be fingered out of the D chord, using the 
2nd finger to get those 2 C notes. 
-----------------------------------------------

D                              G
I got to run to keep from hiding
D                              G
And I'm bound to keep on riding
D                                 G
And I've got one more silver dollar
C                                     G
But I'm not gonna let them catch me, no

[alternate suggestion from Nate:]
                Bb
But I'm not gonna let them catch me, no

C                                     D
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider

I don't own the clothes I wear
And the road goes on forever
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let them catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider

I've gone past the point of caring
About whose bed I'll soon be sharing
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let them catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider
(3X)

Corrections are always welcome!

Midnight Rider

Oops! Try this: Gm7 But I'm not gonna let'em catch me, no Bb (bar 1st fr) C (bar 3rd fr) D (open pos) Not gonna let'em catch . . . the midnight rider Tuning: DADGBE (this way you can still solo and play the rhythm) This one I'm sure is right. Great suggestion on the Gm7! It still works with the drop D just play the low D string on the 5th frett.

My score:

The correct chording goes:

D-Am7-Dm7 and repeat

My score:

Off of the all acoustic benefit album, it should be played:
            C maj
But I'm not gonna let'em catch me, no
Bmaj                    A maj (open)
Not gonna let'em catch
Acapella        D
The midnight rider
B maj played in barre, 3rd position
1st rhythm guitar has open high D (EBDGAD) and plays D chord with that high D open
2nd guitar plays standard tuning and mutes the high E string
Got it?
