Killing the Blues - chords, tab and comments

This song captured from "Woodstock Mountains: More Music From Mud Acres" (Rounder, 1977), one of the best albums I've ever heard. Woodstock Mountain Revue was a loose assosiation of folk/country singers, artists and songwriters from the area of Woodstock, New York, and Rowland Salley used to be with them. The song is later covered by John Prine, Chris Smither, Shawn Colvin and more recently, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. Salley is bass guitarist and vocalist for Chris Isaak's band Silvertone since 1985.
leaves were falling just like embers
E                  E7                   A
in colors red and gold  they set us on fire
burning just like a moonbeam in our eyes
B7       F#m7       B7       E          E7           A
somebody said they saw me swinging the world by the tail
                  E            A6/9        E
bouncing over a white cloud  killing the blues
