Blonde Star

 

Written by John Stewart

 

'Blonde Star' is on "Blondes", Allegiance Records (82), re-released as CD by Line Records (90), and on "Way Too Much Fun!  Live at McCabes June & December 99", Homecoming CD (2000).  Versions are almost identical, nice rhythm!  Something like "boom boom ba-boo ba-boom boom  ba-boom boom-ba" for the (Am)-(Em)-sections.  The song is in C#m, I play it in Am, capo 4th fret.
