Southbound (100 Miles) – Ben Barnes  (from Jackie & Ryan)    

It sounds best if you play an E7 instead of a normal E chord and hammer your pinky on and pull the string down 
a little  on the 3rd fret on the B string, same with the Am chord, to achieve that typical country style.

In the original song, the guitars are transposed one step down, but i think they play the same chords. 
So, either transpose the song, or tune your guitar one step down. 

Intro:
Am F E 
Am F E 
Am F E F E G 

          Am
I'm headed southbound
F           E
Long way to go, down
           Am      
Where the weather 
F             E
Don't suit my clothes
  Am                  F            E
Police can't catch me lord how they tried
F                        E           G
They always miss me when I'm passing by
            Am
I'm passing by

   F E 
Am F E 

  Am                       F      E         
I threw all my things in a vacant life  
Am                            F             E  
Down one last dollar boys and that is all I got
         Am                      F              E
Well I found all my friends just so I could say goodbye
    F                                E   G
I couldn't hold it down, good god how I tried

Am                    F             E         
Some got religion and they just cant win
       Am                          F              E
Well I take too hard drinking and I push my feelings in
Am                        F            E            
I'm leaving town and all people that I know
          F                                E              G
well I'm drunk as hell tonight and that freight train my home

          Am
Im headed southbound
F               E
Long way to go down
           Am      
Where the weather 
F             E
Don't suit my clothes
               Am     F               E
Police can't catch me lord how they tried
F                        E           G
They always miss me when I'm passing by
            Am
I'm passing by

Solo:  (X2)
Am F E 
Am F E
Am F E F E G 


Am                              F           E            
Rain's pouring hard makes those steel rails shine
  Am               F                  E
900 more miles and I'll be doing just fine
Am                                    F                 E
And if the moon and the stars are the only shelter that I know
   F                               E              G   
l guess I got this whole world and you to call my home
        Am 
Call my home

F E               Am
     You to call my home 
F E               Am
     You to call my home 
F E Am

You have proven to be the better listener, but is it possible the 'G' is already played at "...passing BY" instead of at I'M passin by?

You have no idea how awesome it would be if you can upload a video of you playing it on youtube. I am quite a beginner and I can read tabs, but I yet to learn how to transfer them into a song since I don't know the strumming pattern.
