Baby won't you carry me back to Tennessee.

Drink all day and rock all night,
The law come to get you if you don't walk right
Got a letter this morning, baby all it read,
You better head back to Tennessee Jed.

I dropped four flights and cracked my spine,
Honey, come quick with the iodine,
Catch a few winks, baby, under the bed
Then you head back to Tennessee Jed.

Tennessee, Tennessee, there ain't no place I'd rather be,
Baby won't you carry me back to Tennessee.

I run into Charlie Fog,
Blacked my eye and he kicked my dog,
My doggie turned to me and he said,
Let's head back to Tennessee Jed.

I woke up a-feelin' mean,
I went down to play the slot machine,
The wheels turned around, and the letters read,
You better head back to Tennessee Jed.

Tennessee, Tennessee, there ain't no place I'd rather be,
Baby won't you carry me back to Tennessee.

for your * chord try using a diminished chord (i think its diminished..?) of 007878. and that one progression should use the regular 8th fret barre c before and 5th fret barre dm after with your pinky on the 8th fret of the high e... so itd be this:
c, *, dm
8 10 10 9 8 8, 007878, 557568

It doesn't matter which website it's taken from - they could all be wrong. In this instance, you are in agreement: the * chord is a diminished chord anyway.

Really, the only acceptable source should be the RECORD - 'Europe 72'.
