**Note :Beginners can use a D chord in place of the Bm in this song and it still 
sounds pretty good.

Intro: G, D, C x2, fast G,C,G


Em                                 C
I thumbed my way from L.A. back to Knoxville
       G                                        D
I found out those bright lights ain't where I belong
       Em                                  C
from a phone booth in the rain I called to tell her
Am                                     D
I've had a change of dreams I'm comin' home
          C                                       D    (C, D, G)
but tears filled my eyes when I found out she was gone
G                            Bm
Smoky Mountain Rain keeps on fallin'
          C           D    (C, D, G)
I keep on callin' her name
G                               Bm
Smoky Mountain Rain I'll kep on searchin'
              C            D
I can't go on hurtin' this way
      C                D              G
she's somewhere in the smoky mountain rain

verse 2:

Em                              C
I waved a diesel down outside a cafe
        G                      D
he said he was goin' as far as Gatlinburg
         Em                         C
I climbed up in the cab all wet and lonely
Am                                 D
I wiped my eyes and told him about her
           C                                       D    (C, D, G)
I've got to find her can you make these big wheels burn

BRIDGE:  I can't blame her for lettin' go
a woman needs someone warm to hold
I feel the rain runnin' down my face
Bbmaj7                  D              (C, D, G)
I'll find her no matter what it takes

G, D, C, D

very nice tab except u didnt include the intro and instrumental.
they are:
Intro-G, D, Cx2, fast G,C,G
Instrumental-G, D, C, D
otherwise a very nice tab that is really close to what i have figured out.
Beginners can use a D chord in place of the Bm in this song and it still sounds great.
