This is one of the more obscure tracks from Triplicate. I don't think the sheet music was ever publicly released.

[Intro]
F Dm Gm C
F Dm Gm C
F Bbm
F Dm Gm C

[Verse 1]
F Dm
Braggin'
Gm C F Dm
Wastin' all your time just braggin'
Gm C
When ya' should be busy
F F7
Plowin' and a'plantin'
Bb Bbm
You stand there a'rantin'
F C C7
Get no harvest tooting your horn

[Verse 2]
F Dm
Braggin'
Gm C F Dm
You ain't got no cause for braggin'
Gm C
When your barn needs mendin'
F F7
And your lawn needs mowin'
Bb Bbm
How come you're a crowin'
F Bb F
Like a no-good rooster at dawn

[Bridge 1]
Bb
Braggin' 'bout your fishin'
Bbm
'Bout your horseshoe pitchin'
F F7
Bet you always keep the score
Bb
Talkin' 'bout your medal
Bbm
That's the kind they peddle
F C C7
Down at the 5 and 10 store

[Verse 3]
F Dm
Braggin'
Gm C F Dm
Folks ain't got no use for braggin'
Gm C
If your fields are greener
F F7
Folks will hear about it
Bb Bbm
You don't hafta shout it
F Bb F
Fields were greener 'fore you were born

[Instrumental]

[Bridge 2]
Bb
Braggin' 'bout your fishin'
Bbm
'Bout your horseshoe pitchin'
F F7
Bet you always keep the score
Bb
Talkin' 'bout your medal
Bbm
That's the kind they peddle
F C C7
Down at the 5 and 10 store

[Instrumental Break]
F Bb Dm
Bb C

[Verse 4]
F Dm
Braggin'
Gm C F Dm
Folks ain't got no use for braggin'
Gm C
If your fields are greener
F F7
Folks will hear about it
Bb Bbm
You don't hafta shout it
F Bb F
Fields were greener 'fore you were born

[Outro]
Bb F
Bb F

Here's There's a Flaw in My Flue, if you need it.

B

Bb Eb G. Cm
I used to sit by my fireplace
Ab. Eb
and dream about you.
F Bb
But now that won't do.
Eb.
There's a flaw in my flue.

Eb G. Cm
Your lovely face in my fireplace
Ab Eb
Was all that I saw.
F Bb
But now it won't draw.
Eb Bb. Eb
My flue has a flaw.

Ab Bb. Eb Bb. Eb
For every beautiful ember a memory arose ~
Ab Am D Gm. C. Fm Bb
Now I try to remember and smoke get in my nose.

Eb G. Cm
It's not as sweet as the unit-heat
Ab Eb
To dream about you.
So darling, adieu.
Eb Bb. Eb
There's a flaw in my flue.

G. B. Eb

Thanks a lot goodnitesteve, I stayed up and worked out braggin on the piano last night. Was just missing the F7, sounds good going F6 and up. Doing it on guitar with capo 1 With E shapes and 5 with C shapes too, just figuring out where my voice sits best on it. Have a gig next wed and not played a cover in a little while. Can't get this out of my head, the lyrics are perfect, really feeling them on a personal level. My interactions with people. Cheers for the other one, beautiful song. Something I'd play to myself but not on stage. At this point anyway

No problem. I can play it without a capo, but it's a little better with one on the 5th fret and play everything in C.

Here's a rough version I did this morning in my bathrobe
