Ok guys heres my version of Old man down the road!
The E7 can also be played as a Em and it still sounds right!


Intro:

Use a clear tone with bridge pickup I find works the best, no effects or 
fancy tools needed!
E|-----------------------------|---------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------|---------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------|---------------------------------------|
D|-5-7-7b(8)-5-----------------|-5-7-7b(8)-(8)-b(8)7-5-----------------|
A|-------------7--0-----7---7--|-----------------------7--0-----7---7--|
E|------------------3-0---0----|----------------------------3-0---0----|


Verse 1     Play chords nice and jumpy
          E7
He take-a thunder from the mountain
          G
He take-a lightnin' from the sky
             A
He bring the strong man to his beggin' knees
            E7
He make the young girl's mama cry

CHORUS:
           E7
You got to hidey-hide
           G
You got to jump and run
           A
You got to hidey-hidey-hide
    C       D             E7
The old man   is down the road

Verse 2:
He got the voices speakin' riddles
He got eyes as black as coal
He got a suitcase covered with rattlesnake hide
And he stands right in the road

CHORUS

 John'sinstrumental..... same pattern as chorus

Verse 3:
He make the river call your lover
He make the barking of the hound
Put a shadow 'cross the window
When the old man comes around

Chorus(last line twice)

Now for some of the riffs used.. i think you can figure out where.
These are not fully correct, I mainly improvise them.

|----16----16-16---16-16\---------------|
|---------------------------------------| 
|-/16---16------16----------------------|
|---------------------------b(8)7--5----|
|------------------------------------7--|
|---------------------------------------|

|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|
|-2-2-2-2-0------------------|
|-----------2-0--------------|
|---------------0------------|


|----------------------------------|
|---b2(2.5)---------b2(2.5)--------| Ok This really needs work.. but I think 
|---b2(2.5)-0-----0-b2(2.5)-0------| you get the idea.
|-2-----------2---------------2----|
|----------------------------------|
