New Tag

Help

Q: What are tags?
A: Tags are a way to add consistent notes to songs.

Q: When should I use tags?
A: Tags should be used for "notes" that can apply to multiple songs or performances. A good tag would be "clawhammer", to apply to all songs that Billy plays on his banjo. A bad tag would be "Streaker ran across stage" - since this has only happened once (thank goodness).

Q: Where should I add a tag?
A: A tag that should apply to everytime a song is played, like "solo, acappella" for "And am I Born to Die" should be added on the songs page. This will automatically add the tag every time that song is added to a setlist.

A tag that only applies to certain performances of a song, like "pay Jarrod Walker's fine" lyric change that happens in some versions of "Little Maggie" should be added to that particular version of the song on each setlist.

Q: How do I add a tag?
A: Click the "Manage tags" button either from the songs page or the song editing option on the edit setlist page. Click on a tag from the "Available" tags to add it to the song. Click on a tag from under the song title to remove it from the song. Click the "New Tag" button if the tag you want to add is not under the Available tags list.

First Time Played:

Headin' South to Georgia, four shows in a row
Didn't get no sleep last night, the way these drivers roll
Heaven seems so far away, I believe it in my soul
I'll be gone a long time

Heard my baby laughing, like a Jackal in the night
Looked in through the window, and I saw an awful sight
He took off his overcoat and she turned out the light
I'll be gone a long time

Jaybird seen a little worm, wiggling on the ground
Guess there ain't no hiding place, no matter where I'm found
Just came from Traverse City, now I'm Withlacoochee bound
I'll be gone a long timе

Jesus took the water and turnеd it into wine
Me I take them pretty girls, and try to make 'em mine
I tell 'em not to worry, that I'll see 'em down the line
I'll be gone a long time

Well, I just keep a rolling to the rhythm of the band
If you think I'm lucky boys, you just don't understand
That I'll pick this old guitar till my fingers turn to sand
I'll be gone a long time
I'll be gone a long time
