Capo on 3:rd fret
C F Am G C 
F Em Am G F G C

[C] Lord I been hangin' [F] out of town [Am] in that [G] low down [C] rain
Watchin' good time [F] Charlie friend is [Am] drivin' [G] me [C] insane
Down on shady [F] Charlotte Street [Am] all the green lights [G] look [C] red
I wish I was back [F] home on the [Am] farm in my [G] feather [C] bed.

And I [C] got myself a [F] rockin' chair
To [Am] see if [G] I could [C] lose
This [F] thin [Em] dime [Am] hard [G] times
[F] Hell on [G]  Church Street [C] blues.

I found myself a picker friend that I registered James Earl
I folded up page twenty-one and stuck it in my shoe
They gave me a nickle to the poor my a good turn for the day
I folded up my own little folder threw it far away.

And I wish I had some guitar strings Old Black Diamond brand
I'd string up this old Martin box and go and join some band
But I guess I'll go and stay right here and pick and sing a while
Try to make me a little change and give them folks a smile. 

This above based on:

Video lessons with picking pattern etc at e.g.

Original with the hero himself at e.g.

Please correct if you find any mistakes

Best wishes

The chord progression is correct, but Tony does some kind of reverse cross-picking technique that I haven't figured out. However, the lyrics in the second verse are incorrect.
"I found myself a picker friend, and I read yesterday's news.
I folded up page 21, and i stuck it in my shoes.
I gave me a nickel to the poor, my good turn for the day.
I folded up my old billfold, and threw it far away."
