The other versions of this song on this site are nice starts, but they're not quite correct.  

Here is what Jason Isbell does, at least in his acoustic version of the song.


Chords used (all chords are relative to the capo, so they don’t identify the actual sound of the chord):

C:      x32010
Cadd9:  x32030
C/B:    x20010
Am7:    x02010
Am7/G:  302010
Fmaj7:  x33210


Note: Embellish the Cadd9 and Fmaj7 throughout by pulling off and hammering on with the middle finger.


Capo 4, Key of D#


Intro:  Alternate b/w Cadd9 and C (and embellish by pulling off and hammering on with the middle finger).

       Cadd9                                                C/B
Well, I moved into this room, if you could call it that, a week ago.
   Am7
I never do what I'm supposed to do.
         Am7/G         Fmaj7
I hardly even know my name anymore.
                                    Cadd9
When no one calls it out, it kinda vanishes away.

    Cadd9                                             C/B
I can't get to sleep at night.  The parking lot's so loud and bright.
    Am7
The A/C hasn't worked in twenty years.
           Am7/G        Fmaj7
Probably never made a single person cold,
                                       Cadd9
But I can't say the same for me.  I've done it many times.

              C/B Am7          Am7/G   Fmaj7        Cadd9
Somebody take me home, through those Alabama Pines.

          Cadd9                                      C/B
You can't drive through Talladega on a weekend in October.
  Am7                                           Am7/G
Head up north to Jacksonville.  Cut around and over.
            Fmaj7
Watch your speed in Boiling Springs.
                                       Cadd9
They ain't got a thing to do.  They'll get you every time.

              C/B Am7          Am7/G   Fmaj7        Cadd9
Somebody take me home, through those Alabama Pines.
              C/B Am7          Am7/G   Fmaj7        Cadd9
Somebody take me home, through those Alabama Pines.
Cadd9  C/B    Am7    Am7/G  Fmaj7
Oh     Oh     Oh     Oh     Oh
Cadd9  C/B    Am7    Am7/G  Fmaj7
Oh     Oh     Oh     Oh     Oh

     Cadd9                                              C/B
If we pass through on a Sunday, better make a stop at Wayne's.
          Am7                                       Am7/G
It's the only open liquor store north, and I can't stand the pain
    Fmaj7
Of being by myself, without a little help
      Cadd9
On a Sunday afternoon.

  Cadd9                                          C/B
I needed that damn woman like a dream needs gasoline.
    Am7
I tried to be some ancient kind of man,
            Am7/G          Fmaj7
One that's never seen the beauty in the world,
                                         Cadd9
But I tried to chase it down.  Tried to make the whole thing mine.


              C/B Am7          Am7/G   Fmaj7        Cadd9
Somebody take me home, through those Alabama Pines.
              C/B Am7          Am7/G   Fmaj7        Cadd9
Somebody take me home, through those Alabama Pines.
Cadd9  C/B    Am7    Am7/G  Fmaj7
Oh     Oh     Oh     Oh     Oh
Cadd9  C/B    Am7    Am7/G  Fmaj7
Oh     Oh     Oh     Oh     Oh

          Cadd9                                                C/B
I've been stuck here in this town, if you can call it that, a year or two.
    Am7
I never do what I'm supposed to do.
         Am7/G       Fmaj7
I don't even need a name anymore.
                                       Cadd9
When no one calls it out, it kind of vanishes away.

Cadd9                                          C/B
No one gives a damn about the things I give a damn about.
      Am7
The liberties that we can't do without 
           Am7/G         Fmaj7
Seem to disappear like ghosts in the air.
                                    Cadd9
When we don't even care, it truly vanishes away.
