         She was shakin'____
         Snappin' her fingers,
         She was move_______ing, round and round.
         That girl was shakin'.

  A A A B
         We started drinkin' want to take it straight
  A A A B
         She was doin' 80 and she slammed on the brakes.
  A A A B
         We got so high we had to pull to the side,
         We did some shakin' till the middle of the night!

         Snappin' her fingers, 
         She was up and down and round and round,


         A   B   G   A   (different rhythm pattern)

         I got a little nervous, huh...
         She took her coat off,
         She looked so pretty,
         Awwww, yeah! 
         I'm always talkin' baby, talkin' too much,
         I love that little girl and I just can't get enough!
         It takes a lonely night with nowhere to go,
         Just call Roseanna it's a hell of a show!

         Snappin her fingers
         She'll be movin' round and round
         Awww, she's shakin'

         Snappin' her fingers,
         She'll be movin' up and down, round and round and down,
         And shakin'
         Sh, sh, sh, sh, sh, she was shakin'!
         Sh, sh, sh, sh, sh, she was shakin'!
         Sh, sh, sh, sh, sh, she was shakin'!
         Sh, sh, sh, sh, sh, she was shakin'!

Can anyone tab out the actual guitar lines instead of just chords?
I'd do it but I suck at it.

The only reason anyone is going to be looking for tabs of this song is to learn the fills, not the chords.

If you're a good enough musician (i.e. NOT a typical guitar player), less is more, when it comes to tabs. The best tabs on this site, are the ones where there are just chord symbols (proper ones, none of these goofy ones that say G1 thru G5 that refer to a legend they made up, cuz they didn't know how to identify them).

The reason I say that, is because a good musician can look at the chords that are playing, and figure out their own arrangement--obviously, if there is a signature riff to the song, they're going to want to figure it out, but it's usually not very to pick out what they're playing on a recording if you've got that much of a roadmap. If you need a more explicit map, chances are you probably couldn't play it in the first place.

I realize some people are probably OCD and have to have every note that was played, by every guitar overdubbed on the record, but I'd rather add my own personal touch when I play someone elses song. There are plenty of people that can spend hours figuring out how to play note perfect renditions of songs, but that's all they do, and they can't do anything spontaneous or original.

Sorry, if this is an odd place to go off on this rant, but I absolutely despise the way tabliture has evolved. There was a time when the internet didn't exist, so you had to own a really good chord book (which isn't even close to an online chord calc, cuz you still had to know how to use it) or be very good at picking out the notes, and figure out the voicing yourself. Tabliture finally came along, because guitar was getting popular and there were a lot of beginners that didn't have the music theory background or chord vocabulary to play from sheet music and without someone showing you how to play in the first place, it's a rare individual that can play by ear. Tabs are garbage when they're separated from standard notation, because it was intended to help learn the fingering shapes and clarify which voicing were being played as a supplement, NOT replace the MUSIC! Now, the world is flooded with a bunch of dummies, that THINK they're musicians and might even know the names of a few chord shapes they're playing--but they don't know WHY it's named the way it is, or what it would look like on a staff.

Do yourself a favor, if you are one of these NON-MUSICIAN, "Guitar Players", STOP reading tabs, take some basic piano lessons & learn a little bit of music theory and THEN re-learn how to play guitar from a fresh perspective. I know setting my guitar down for a few years, was the best thing I ever did to help my playing--because it was enough time to forget most of what I "knew" and break old habits and revisit the stuff I used to glaze over when I was in band as a kid--now that I've seen the error of my ways, I just wish I would have done it right the first time I picked up the guitar, instead of taking "shortcuts" that ended up hindering me in the long run.
