This is my first tab. It sounds right to me. You can pick the verses and then strum the chorus.
No Capo

(Verse)

D           
Well, I was thumbin' from Montgomery
F
Had my guitar on my back
G                                       D
When a stranger stopped beside me in an antique Cadillac.
D                              F
He was dressed like 1950, half drunk and hollow-eyed.
   G                                                      D
He said, "It's a long walk to Nashville. Would you like a ride, son?"

(Verse)

D                             F
I sat down in the front seat. He turned on the radio,
G                                                      D
And them sad old songs comin' out of them speakers was solid country gold.
D                                                        F
Then I noticed the stranger was ghost-white pale when he asked me for a light
G                                                 D
And I knew there was something strange about this ride.

(Chorus)

D         C                           G                     D
He said, "Drifter, can you make folks cry when you play and sing?
D
Have you paid your dues? Can you moan the Blues?
D       A
Can you bend them guitar strings?"
A         C                       G                  D
He said, "Boy, can you make folks feel what you feel inside?
D                C                      G                          D
'Cause if you're big-star bound, let me warn you it's a long, hard ride."

(Verse)

D                                            F
Then he cried just south of Nashville and he turned that car around.
F         G                                D
He said, "This is where you get off, Boy, 'Cause I'm goin' back to Alabam'."
D                                           F
As I stepped out of that Cadillac, I said, "Mister, many thanks."
G
He said, "You don't have to call me 'Mister', Mister;
D
The whole world called me 'Hank'!"

(Chorus)

D         C                           G                     D
He said, "Drifter, can you make folks cry when you play and sing?
D
Have you paid your dues? Can you m-o-o-oan the Blues?
D       A
Can you bend them guitar strings?"
A         G                       C                  D
He said, "Boy, can you make folks feel what you feel inside?
D                C                      G                          D
'Cause if you're big-star bound, let me warn you it's a long, hard ride."
D         C                           G                     D
He said, "Drifter, can you make folks cry when you play and sing?
D
Have you paid your dues? Can you m-o-o-oan the Blues?
D       A
Can you bend them guitar strings?"
A         G                       C                  D
He said, "Boy, can you make folks feel what you feel inside?
D                C                      G                          D
'Cause if you're big-star bound, let me warn you it's a long, hard ride."
D         C                      G                          D
If you're big-star bound, let me warn you it's a long, hard ride.
