G D Em C G D Cm G

G				  D
Rollin' down-a backwoods Tennessee byway
Em	      C		        G
One arm on the wheel, holdin' my lover
	D      Em		     C
With the other, a sweet, soft Southern thrill
    	        Em                D
Worked hard all week, got a little jingle
     Em       	       C
On a Tennessee Saturday night
              G             D
Couldn't feel better, I'm together 
        Cm        G
With my Dixieland Delight

         D                 Em                   	        C
Spend my dollar, park in a holler 'neath the mountain moonlight
         G                       D
Hold her up tight, make a little lovin'
              Em                 	     C
A little turtledovin' on a mason-Dixon night
        Em           C   	      Cm	         G
Fits my life, oh, so right, my Dixieland Delight

G				  D
White-tail buck deer, munchin' on clover
Em	                    C
Red-tail hawk, sittin' on a limb
	   G		     D
Chubby old groundhog, croakin' bullfrog
Em 		        C
Free as a feelin' in the wind
		 Em 		      D
Homegrown country girl, gonna give me a whirl
     Em       	       C
On a Tennessee Saturday night
           G                D
Lucky as a seven; livin' in heaven
        Cm        G
With my Dixieland Delight

         D                 Em                   	        C
Spend my dollar, park in a holler 'neath the mountain moonlight
         G                       D
Hold her up tight, make a little lovin'
              Em                 	     C
A little turtledovin' on a mason-Dixon night
        Em           C   	      Cm	         G
Fits my life, oh, so right, my Dixieland Delight

I think that instead of a Cm it should be regular C with your pinkie on the 3rd fret high e string. Easier to play and still sounds good, as long as when you are strumming you emphasize the bottom 4 strings. Great tab though.

If you play this travis picking...you can hear that its a C/G chord not a C. And I have to disagree about the Cm. Its a good chord shape to learn and is used in lots of other songs.

The C to Cm movement is correct and is an example of a deceptive cadence in action. The listener doesn't expect it and then it resolves back to the tonic. Quite effective...
