Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer – The Crack Song (Chords)

Mr B – The Crack Song

After a couple of his cover medleys it’s about time I did one of Mr B’s own tunes. And, I have to say, it makes a pleasant change to write out the lyrics of someone with good diction.

I did the chord sheet based on the version on O.G. Original Gentleman. Which has a few differences from the video version. It’s much longer. The banjolele is in D-tuning for the video and slightly sharp of that on the record. Here’s the version of the chords if you’re playing in standard tuning with a capo at the second (and a half) fret.

Mr B – The Crack Song (Standard Tuning)

Suggested Strumming

For the opening part, it’s just down strums.

When it picks up you can use this as the main pattern:

d – d – d u d u

For the quick chord changes at the end of the line you can do:

d – d –

For each. There are some really quick chord changes in the last verse that just need one down strum.
