Ryan Adams “Let It Ride"(Acoustic)

This is how our boy plays it on the acoustic and this is probably 90% correct. I hope 
solo performer finds this useful. This sounds really good solo, I mean, Ryan did it! I 
the lead at the bottom.

Intro: Am7    Am7    Am7   Fmaj  C/E

Am
Moving like the fog on the Cumberland River
      Fmaj                 C/E
I was leaving on the Delta Queen
      Fmaj   C/E      G
And I wasn't ready to go
Fmaj      C/E      G
I'm never ready to go

Am
27 years of nothing but failures
       Fmaj                  C/E
and promises that I couldn't keep, Oh Lord
    Fmaj     C/E      G
and I wasn't ready to go
Fmaj      C/E      G
I'm never ready to go

       Am
Let it ride
            Fmaj  C/E      G
Let it ride easy  down the road
       Am
Let it ride
            Fmaj     C/E    G
Let it take away all of the darkness
       Am
Let it ride
               Fmaj   C/E     G         C/E
Let it rock me in the arms of strangers angels
Fmaj
Until it brings me home
Fmaj                              Am
Let it ride. Let it roll, Let it go

Am7    Am7    Am7   Fmaj  C/E (x2)

Am
Loaded like a sailor tumbling off a ferryboat
Fmaj                  C/E
I was at the bar till three, Oh Lord
    Fmaj     C/E      G
and I wasn't ready to go
Fmaj      C/E      G
I'm never ready to go

Am
Tennessee's a brother to my sister Carolina
      Fmaj                 C/E
Where they were gonna bury me
    Fmaj    C/E      G
and I ain't ready to go
Fmaj      C/E      G
I'm never ready to go

       Am
Let it ride
            Fmaj  C/E      G
Let it ride easy  down the road
       Am
Let it ride

Let it take away all of the darkness
       Am
Let it ride
               Fmaj   C/E     G         C/E
Let it rock me in the arms of strangers angels
Fmaj
Until it brings me home
Fmaj                              Am
Let it ride. Let it roll, Let it go

Am7    Am7    Am7   Fmaj  C/E(x2)

Fmaj
I wanna see you tonight
Fmaj
Dancing in the endless moonlight
C/E                     G
In a parking lot in the headlights of cars
Fmaj
Some place on the moon
Fmaj
Where they moved the drive-in theatre
C/E
Where I left the car that I can't find
    G
but I still got the keys to

       Am
Let it ride
            Fmaj  C/E      G
Let it ride easy  down the road
       Am
Let it ride
            Fmaj     C/E    G
Let it take away all of the darkness
       Am
Let it ride
               Fmaj   C/E     G         C/E
Let it rock me in the arms of strangers angels
Fmaj
Until it brings me home
Fmaj                              Am
Let it ride. Let it roll, Let it go

Pretty sure that first Fmaj in the verse should be a G. the F doesn't work with the melody.
