Bill Smithers:  Up on the Lowdown
    Transcription by Joe Higgins

Easy blues based song. which is based on chords played the following way:
A:
----------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------|
----------------------2-----------------------|
-2--2--4--4--5--5--4--2-----------------------|
-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--------------------------|
----------------------------------------------|

D:           *Full stop at this point
----------------------------------|
----------------------3-----------|
-2--2--4--4--5--5--4--2-----------|
-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--------------|

----------------------------------|
----------------------------------|
----------------------------------|
----------------------2-----------|
-2--2--4--4--5--5--4--2-----------|
-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--------------|

The second to last fingering of each chord works a little better with a
quick hammer on from the 2nd fret to the 4th.  It really comes naturally
with the rhythm of this song.

Up On the Lowdown

A
When I think that I know nothin', it's all feelin'
My friends keep me down to the ground
They peel me off the ceiling
D
That's what's so surprising
A
They used to seem so shy
E
I only know cuz so am I,
D                         *   Full stop (see chord)
It keeps me hangin round,
                  A
It keeps me up on the lowdown,
Up on the lowdown.

I been closer listen', now I can hear you
All that stuff that I'd been missin'
Warms me, now I'm near you,
That's what's so surprisin',
you used to be so cold, I only know what I've been told,
I hear it down in town'
It keeps me up on the lowdown,
Up on the lowdown.

I might try to scream and cry, just to test you
But then something makes me listen in,
It rushes to my rescue
That's what's so srprising,
It all seems so well timed,
It would shake a more suspicious mind,
But I just like the sound
It keeps me up on the lowdown,
Up on the lowdown

This simple secret is the key to my attraction,
Makes me feel kike such a king
Gets me all the action,
That's what's so surprising, nobody has to know
I keep it hid, it hardly shows,
Underneath my crown
It keeps me up on the lowdown,
Up on the lowdown
