I've Been All Around This World

An old Appalachian ballad but this interpretation stays close to the Jerry Garcia versions.

Up on the Blue Ridge mountains, there I'll take my stand.
   C                        C7   F                  C
Up on the Blue Ridge mountains, there I'll take my stand.
   F                         C
A rifle on my shoulder, six-shooter in my hand;
             G         C
I been all around this world.

Lulu, my Lulu come and open the door.
Lulu, my Lulu come and open the door.
Before I have to walk in with my old 'forty-four'.
I been all around this world.

Mama and Papa, little sister makes three.
Mama and Papa, little sister makes three.
They're comin' in the mornin', that's the last you'll see of me.
I been all around this world.

Hang me, oh, hang me, so I'll be dead and gone.
Hang me, oh, hang me, so I'll be dead and gone.
I wouldn't mind your hangin', boys but you wait in jail so long.
I been all around this world.

Up on the Blue Ridge Mountains, there I'll take my stand.
Up on the Blue Ridge Mountains, there I'll take my stand.
A rifle on my shoulder, six shooter in my hand;
I been all around this world.

    @sleepingtiger Hi, there may be some slight variations between the video and the tab, but you can play it either way. I've just tried to provide a template but you can take the melody and play it several ways.
