Great tab! Sounds even better when you play an C#m after the second E (i.e. at "Follow them wherever they go")

Great tab, but there's a verse missing before the solo:

I haven't eaten a bite
I haven't slept for three days or nights
That's how I got to Memphis
That's how I got to Memphis

The chords are the same as the other verses.

Mistake in the lyrics:

NOT: "Give me a fast start in crime" (that makes no sense)
IS: "Forgive me if I start cryin'"
