I've checked all these sites - done Bing/Google and any other thing I can think of and it's not on any of these sites.  That's why I thought perhaps someone here might have what I'm looking for - I guess no one does this song at jams or as a solo -

Just Google "Good Corn Liquior" Steel Drivers. If it's out there, it should come up. Ultimate Guitar Tabs, Country Tabs, Rough Country, are usually good ones. Chordie and EChords are pretty good to.

Hi folks,

Not much activity on this site so I hope someone can help.  I'm trying to find either the chords or tabs for Steeldrivers song "Good Corn Liquor". Any help would be appreciated.

Though my heart is on the ground, thanks for letting us know. I had not heard about Doc. I truly hope he is with Merle, Doug, and Earl - playing to their hearts' content.

Then the Legacy they left behind will have to pass to those left behind, as they did for so many years. "Time Will End, when the Pickin' Stops!" Put  that on your T-shirts.

Sadly, now Doc has gone home, as I'm sure most have heard.  We can be grateful for his long life and the great music he leaves us with, not to mention the inspiration to be derived from trying to approach his playing.  Me, I'm writing this with a tear or two for him.

Hmmm... Four "banjo killers" and one banjo. Which one comes through loudest? Man, this is both a pleasure and a sadness to watch and listen to. Earl, Merle, and now Doc is in the hospital. Makes you wonder about the future, huh?

Thanks, Jud. This is great stuff!

Happier times ...

Doc and Merle Watson with Earl Scruggs ... Enjoy
