Nick Drake - Poor Boy

POOR BOY

Tuning: Standard Capo 3rd fret



This is an updated version from that first posted here. I must
acknowledge the use of the Music Sales Nick Drake songbook, whose
version whilst similar to my first one was pitched further up the
neck and made several improvements; this one features several
improvements on the book version, particularly in the use of a 
capo (which makes it not so impossible to play), but also some
of the chords themselves.
I'll make no attempt to represent the strumming / picking pattern,
but it's pretty obvious from the track.


Intro:

57555x  x57555


Verse:

57555x 47444x  four times
37333x x37333  four times
57555x 47444x  


"Nobody knows..."

x0565x x0454x x0343(3) x02420   twice


"Oh poor boy.."

x02220 x00020 2x023x (x4; you can do the riff as 023 on B string)
(there's a major seventh in the third chord - can't decide whether
2x022x is better for solo guitar. see what you think)


"he may say every day"

020200 020100 x2
