This song's very simple as it only has one chord progression.
Overall Chord Progression:
Dmin Fmaj Gmaj Bbmaj

For the intro/verse guitar, use power chords tuned down a whole step, so DGCFA#D.  This 
is also very doable in Drop D

Intro/Verse Riff:
-------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------|

--2-------3--------7-------10--------|
2-22----5--33-----777------1010------|
0---0-/-33---3-/-5---5-/-88----8-/-0-|  Mix it up a bit.

The verse's chords: Dmin Fmaj Gmaj Bbmaj
Bbmaj Dmin                                  Fmaj
Well, they caught you smoking grass and the judge threw the book
      Gmaj                 Bbmaj
I can see a little opportunism in your look
    Dmin                             Fmaj                  Gmaj     Bbmaj
You can take it from me, boy you can take it from a crook
      Dmin                      Fmaj
I got friends on the inside and friends on the outside
       Gmaj                 Bbmaj
I can see you standing there, staring down at your shoes
Thinking about your Mom and Dad and wondering what to do
Well you best look inside yourself, boy, we're all watching you
We got friends in jail who will see you through
Boy, don't forget, no matter what you do

Chorus:
Dmin               Fmaj
Don't piss off the Boys from Alabama
    Gmaj                   Bbmaj
You know they won't let it slide
Dmin                             Fmaj
They might find your body in the Tennessee River
   Gmaj                       Bbmaj
or they might not find you at all
Dmin                    Fmaj
There'll be no place to run and hide
    Gmaj                      Bbmaj
and your family ain't safe at all
Dmin               Fmaj
Don't piss off the Boys from Alabama
Gmaj                    Bbmaj
We're keeping an eye on you

Keepin an eye on you

Don't piss off the Boys from Alabama
Better take it like a man
Ain't nobody gonna stick anything up your ass
If you remember who your friends are
We got good help down in Franklin County
They'll hunt you like a dog
You can take your fall or lose it all
The choice is up to you

I wouldn't piss off the Boys from Alabama if I was you
