Crazy

Willie Nelson
as sung on the VH1 Storytellers album with Johnny Cash (released 1998)
Tabbed by Eyolf Østrem


This version is full of Willie's loose licks and tricks, bass runs and chord passages, anything I ever found charming about his playing style. One reviewer thought that "Willie gets a little too fancy with his guitar pickin' " here. Well, OK, perhaps, but what's wrong with a little fancy?
Chords:

C#m7-5    x4200x
G+/d#     xx1003
C/g       335553 (at "new")
Abm6      486444 (yes, it's a stretch ...)
Gm6       375333 (this one too)
Eo        xx2323 - xx5656 - xx8989   (the chord is moved up in three steps)
The Em (at "wanted") is really nothing more than a quick -2h3p2- on the fourth string, but harmonically some sort of Em is implied.

    C       /c-b-bb
