----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Alex Miller

Tuning: Standard



    

Seeing as nobody's tabbed this amazing version of this song I have tried my best to get 
bits I can understand down.

Intro: (b means slight quarter bend)

e|-------------|--------------------|---------------|----------------------|
B|-------------|--------------------|---------------|----------------------|
G|-------------|--------------------|----------5b-2-|-------------------5b2|
D|-------------|--------------------|----0h2h5------|--------------0h2h5---|

E|--5--5--5--5-|-5--5--5--0h3h5-----|---------------|0h3h5-----------------|



    

  Let Ring..............

After this it gets near impossible to understand as there are two guitars and Jerry Reed 
Chet Atkins have very complex styles of playing.

This is roughly the chord progression that continues throughout the song.
