Fonda-Lina (J.J. Cale)

Well, there's the Gm, bu I just don't know if the other chord is Dm(7) or F(6). Your pick. I like to strum it like this:

Throwing [Gm]flowers out her [Dm]window
And [Dm]smiling like she [Gm]can
Must try it [Dm]hard to attract the [Gm]men
With her [F]bosoms hanging [G]over [F]the window [Gm]sill
It's a story as old as [F]Jesus
Fonda-Lina has a void to [Gm]fill

Digital blues (J.J. Cale)

I always found this song very dull. But I guess that was the point. :D The only positive is that it reminds me of the old "In the year 2525" tune.

But here's my best guess now:
I got the [C#]digital blues, my soul is just another number
I got the [F#]digital blues, my soul is just [C#]another number
[G#]You check it out, we're all the same
[F#]You check it out, we're one again
[C#]I got the digital blues, my soul is just another number

Okie (J.J. Cale)

This one is in Eb. I assume this was played tuned down a fret, but here is what I managed to "transcribe" for the first 12s in standard tuning:

Woke up this morning (J.J. Cale)

For the vocal parts, it is just G and E, G and E, G and E...

Old Friend (J.J. Cale)

This song appears revolve around a simple D/// C/G/ D/// progression.

How you [D]been
It would [C]be so [G]nice to [D]see you
My old friend

Except there is a longer "my old friend" ending (check around 2m40s):
I've gotta [C]call my old [D]friend

Leaving In The Morning (J.J. Cale)

I don't know if this is all correct... but. oh well... please correct if I am wrong! :)

Tell ol' Jesse he can have a guitar
Tell ol' [A]Bob he can have my dog
Tell ol' [G]Frank he's welcome to it
If he [D]thinks he wants my job
Tell every[G]body they can have my home
They're gonna [D]have it anyway [G]
I'm [D]leaving [A]in the [D]morning
And I[G] won't be [A]back [D]as well
