Robin Hood Lyrics

When you’re starting to choke take some pills with your coke
It’s inspirational
When your life is a mess light one more cigarette
It’s so logical

Well it’s something your mother can’t abide
But it’s something that I freely prescribe

Take yourself for a ride
It never felt so good
As the night that you and I played Robin Hood
Stealing from the backrooms of my mind
Remembering a time when we were five
A time I thought we’d left behind

When your starting to cry
I’ll Come and sit by your side
I will love you so
And when nightmares come
I will try to be fun, even though;
I’m so scared you know

Well it’s something your mother can’t abide
But it’s something that I freely prescribe

Take yourself for a ride
It never felt so good
As the night that you and I played Robin Hood
Stealing from the backrooms of our minds
Stealing from a time when we were five
A time I thought we’d left behind

Stealing from the backrooms of our minds
Stealing from a time when we were five
A time I thought we’d left behind

When you’re starting to choke take some pills with your coke
It’s hysterical

Robin Hood – Step 1

Today we start working on a song that contains a new slash chord.

We touched on this as you played Redemption Song with the G/B, today we learn a D/F# as we play the verse from Robin Hood.

Go to Robin Hood – Step 1.


Robin Hood – Step 2

Today we keep exploring how to play Robin Hood by taking a close look at the chorus and turnaround which are more complicated than the verse.

We also look at the outro.

Go to Robin Hood – Step 2.


Robin Hood – Step 3

Today we play Robin Hood with a singer from beginning to end.

To make it easier to follow along, I’ve included a rhythm chart for you.

Go to Robin Hood – Step 3.


Robin Hood – Step 4

Today we create a 2nd guitar part for Robin Hood by changing the key to C and placing a capo on fret 7.

You’ll get TAB and loops for everything to set you up for the final step.

Go to Robin Hood – Step 4.


Robin Hood – Step 5

Keep that capo on fret 7 and join me and the singer to play Robin Hood.

There’s a chart that you can keep an eye on as you strum and pick your way through it, in an improvised way.

Go to Robin Hood – Step 5.
