 Where The Devil Don't Stay Drive-By Truckers
This is my first post. I have seen this one posted one was right on the money but didn't 
put all of the chord changes in the other one not so much this is a pretty easy song to 
the basic rythmn to just listen to it and enjoy
TUNE DOWN 1 STEP   DGCFAd

Intro: Em

Verse 1:

   Em
My Daddy played poker in the woods they say,
G
back in his younger days
A
Prohibition was the talk,
                                 Em
but the rich folks walked to the woods where my Daddy stayed

Verse 2:

Em                                     G
Jugs and jars from shiners, these old boys here, they ain't miners
     A
They came from the twenty-niners
                 Em
It didn't take a hole in the ground to put the bottom in their face
Em G A Em

Verse 3:
Em
Back in the thirties when the dust bowl dried
        G
And the woods in Alabama didn't see no light
         A
My Daddy played poker by a hard wood fire
Em
Squeezing all his luck from a hot copper wire
Em
Scrap like a wildcat fights till the end
G
Trap a wildcat and take his skin
A
Deal from the bottom, put the ace in the hole
Em
One hand on the jug but you never do know       D A C G


Chorus1
D
Son come running
A
You better come quick
C                        G
This rotgut moonshine is making me sick
D                                         A
Your Mama called the law and they're gonna take me away
C                     G
Down so far even the Devil won't stay
Verse 4:
Em
Where I call to the Lord with all my soul
G
I can hear him rattling the chains on the door
A
He couldn't get in I could see he tried
Em
Through the shadows of the cage around the 40 watt light

Chorus2

D
Daddy tell me another story
A
Tell me about the lows and the highs
C                                                      G
Tell me how to tell the difference between what they tell me is the truth
or a lie
D                                                                 A
Tell me why the ones who have so much make the ones who don't go mad
C                                                                 G
With the same skin stretched over their white bones and the same jug in
their hand
Em                                            G
My Daddy played poker on a stump in the woods back when the world was gray
A                                                   Em
Before black and white went and chose up sides and gave a little bit of both their way
                                          G
The only blood that's any cleaner is the blood that's blue or greener
A                                          Em
Without either you just get meaner and the blood you gave gives you away
D A C G

Chorus1
D
Son come running
A
You better come quick
C                    G
This rotgut moonshine is making me sick
    D                                      A
Your Mama called the law and they're gonna take me away
C                    G
Down so far even the Devil won't stay
Em
Where I call to the Lord with all my soul
G
I can hear him rattling the chains on the door
A
He couldn't get in I could see he tried
Em
Through the shadows of the cage around the 40 watt light
Em G A Em

Quite simple, but correct. You missed the last verse, though. Tip: if you insert a Bm9 chord between the A and C of the chorus part, it sounds a little bit more like the original. Bm9 looks like this:

|--0--
|--2--
|--2--
|--0--
|--2--
