Tuning: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb (half-step down)

This is not a hard song at all, if you listen to it carefully.
Jerry plays it finger-style, but you can use a pick if you will

CHORUS

In the chorus you basically play A7 normally, then an extension which is G5 and A7 (twice each one) like this:

 G5                                  (G5)                                 (A7)

A--|             A|-------------------|-------------------|-0-------0-------|-0-------0-------|
E-3|             E|-3-----------------|-3-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

A7                G5       A7             D
Say goodbye don't follow.     Misery so hollow


D D/F#  G6          A7                   D     D/F# G6 A7
Hey     you, you're livin' life full throttle
D D/F#  G6   A7                   D          D/F# G6 A7
Hey     you, pass me down that bottle, yeah
D D/F#  G6   A7                      D     D/F# G6
Hey     you, you can't shake me round now

  A7
I get so lost and don't
G5        A7
Know how
                           D *
And it hurts to care, so I won't now

*that last D is a single strum, letting it fade.


PART 2

Now comes a strum verse where you play A7 and D, but you put your middle finger on and of, making a transition
from A7 to A and from Dsus2 to D, like this:

        (A7 to A)               (Dsus2 to D)
e|-----------------------|-0h2--2-2-2--2-2-0-2-2-|
B|-2---2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2--|-3----3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3-|
G|-0h2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2--|-2----2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-|
D|-2---2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2--|-0----0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-|
A|-0---0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0--|-----------------------|
E|-----------------------|-----------------------|

This strum is not complete, it's just so you can get a notion. Try to listen this part of the song to get the
rhythm. Nothing too complex.

A             
Forgot my woman, lost my friends
D
Things I'd done and where I've been
A
Sleep in sweat the mirrors cold
D
See my face it's growin' old

A
Scared to death no reason why
D
Do whatever to get me by
A
Think about the things I said
D
Read the page it's cold and dead

        A
Take me home
              D
Yeah, take me home
        A
Take me home
        D
Take me home, yeah
        A
Take me home

OUTRO

play the chorus once
A7 G5 A7                   D
        Say goodbye, don't follow

And let the D strum fade away
