comal county blue

comal county blue

jason boland & the stragglers

capo 2nd fret (bottom five strings only, leave top E open, thanks bullrider)


intro: D 

D
i guess it finally rained 
     A
it's down to eighty five
G
i bet the fish are biting
     D          A
down by the riverside 
             D
but it's the only place made colder
       A
around here in the middle of june
       G
by the endless string of strangers
        A            D
brought by the summer moon

my brother moved off to houston
and most my friends stay gone
i need to pay my taxes
i don't like to mow my lawn
i have a harmless habit
of being fine wherever i am
but the way this waters rising
i need to get up above the dam

G
tonight i'm rolling up north
        D       D/C#   Bm
back to where i paid a due
A
tonight the answer is austin
                       D
for the comal county blue

D  A  D

there's one rolled in my ashtray
i'm taking Hunter Road
out by Riley's Tavern
where my liquor loved to flow
we'll skip around San Marcos
stop and tell Doug hello
second gear of congress
you know i like to take it slow

repeat chorus

G  D  D/C#  Bm  A  D

the one right beside me
helped me make it through that town
we moved out to the country
then we bought a wedding gown
but we still know our ways
we learned those lessons well
back around the turn of the century
from a one room roadside cell

repeat chorus x2

-bullrider1106 | 6/27/2008
that's the same chords i have in the tab. as far as the lyrics go i just don't hear the s. i hear it just comal county blue like the title. like he's saying he is the comal county blue not that he has the comal county blues. i could be wrong but that's just how i hear it.
-superman1148 | 6/28/2008
your right! But when you capo 2nd fret leave the top E open.
-bullrider1106 | 7/15/2008
thanks for the info bullrider, i never thought of that. i think that's how they do "up and gone" as well but when i went to look it was gone. must be one of the tabs lost when they got hacked. if anyone has any of the songs that were lost printed off please resubmit them. i would love to have "thunderbird wine". i can't find it anywhere.
-superman1148 | 7/16/2008
you dont leave the top E string open, you put it in Drop D tuning and THEN capo the 2nd.
just to help everyone out! most songs played in the root note of D are usually drop D tuned.
it just gives a fuller, deeper tone out of the D.
-derekalankruege | 10/10/2008
Also, for those who don't have a capo, the chord progression would be as follows:
D=E
A=B
G=A
Bm=C#m
just thought id help.
-derekalankruege | 10/10/2008
isn't leaving the bottom E open without a capo on it kinda like tuning to drop D and putting the capo on all six strings.
-cecil71 | 10/29/2008
sorry didn't realize someone already put that. also i thought that line in the chorus says "where i paid aideu's" like the french word for goodbye
-cecil71 | 10/29/2008
Here's my certified lyrics for it... enjoy! What a cool song. I'm making a karaoke track and singing this down on Congress here is Austin tonight.

I guess it finally rained
It's down to eighty-five
I bet the fish are biting
Down by the riverside
But it's the only place made colder
Around here in the middle of June
By the endless string of strangers
Brought by the summer moon

My brother moved off to Houston
And most my friends stay gone
I need to pay my taxes
I don't like to mow my lawn
I have a harmless habit
Of being fine wherever I am
But the way this water's rising
I need to get up above the dam

Tonight I'm rolling up north
Back to where I paid a due
Tonight the answer is Austin
For the Comal County Blue

There's one rolled in my ashtray
I'm taking Hunter Road
Out by Riley's Tavern
Where my liquor loved to flow
We'll skip around San Marcos
Stop and tell Doug, "Hello"
Second gear up Congress
You know I like to take it slow

Tonight I'm rolling up north
Back to where I paid a due
Tonight the answer's Austin
For the Comal County Blue

The one right beside me
Helped me make it through that town
We moved out to the country
Then we bought a wedding gown
But we still know our ways
We learned those lessons well
Back around the turn of the century
From a one room roadside cell

Yeah, tonight I'm rolling up north
Back to where I paid a due
Tonight the answer's Austin
For the Comal County Blue

Oh, tonight I'm rolling up north
Back to where I paid a due
Sometimes the only answer's Austin
For the Comal County Blue

thanks man. i think i've got em all fixed by now but i appreciate it. also, drop d tuning and capoing all strings will work but when i saw boland on thanksgiving he played it standard tuning and just capoing the bottom 5 strings. thanks guys

-superman1148 | 2/8/2009
I found a guy on YouTube that does a really good cover of the song that helped me learn it and he's got a bunch of other Boland and ragweed videos up also, his user name is "Amonsiball" and here the link for comal:
