G|-------0---0---|
D|---2-----------|This little bit to the left (the last little bit of intro)
A|-3-------2---3-|is also used at the end of each little verse segment.

G|-------0-------0-------0-------|Only finish it with that B note when leading

Here are the Lyrics and the chords so you know when to play each pattern:


[Verse]

C                                  C
She don't like her eggs all runny, She thinks crossin' her legs is funny
F                                 C
She looks down her nose at money, She gets it on like the Easter Bunny,
G                             G                           C
She's my baby, I'm her honey, I ain't never gonna let her go.

C                                        C
He ain't got laid in a month of sundays, caught him once he was sniffing my
undies
F                                           C
He ain't too sharp but he gets things done, drinks his beer like its oxygen
G                                G                   C
He's my baby, and I'm his honey, Never gonna let him Go


[Chorus]

C           F                                    C
In spite of ourselves, we'll end up sittin' on a rainbow
            G                              C                  F
Against all odds, Honey we're the big door prize, We're gonna spite, Our
                       C                                         G
noses right off of our faces, There won't be nothing but big old hearts
               C
dancing in our eyes.

Rest of the song continues as normal:


[Verse]

C                                  C
She thinks all my jokes are corny, Convict movies make her horny,
F                                        C
She likes ketchup on her scrambled eggs, swears like a sailor when she

shaves her legs.
G                                                              C
She takes a lickin', and keeps on tickin', Never gonna let her go

C                                            C
He's got more balls than a big brass monkey, He's a whacked out weirdo and
a lovebug junkie
F                              C
Sly as a fox, Crazy as a loon, Payday comes and he's a-howling at the moon,
G                                                     C
He's my baby, I don't mean maybe, Never gonna let him go


[Chorus]

C           F                                    C
In spite of ourselves, we'll end up sittin' on a rainbow
            G                              C                  F
Against all odds, Honey we're the big door prize, We're gonna spite, Our
                       C                                         G
noses right off of our faces, There won't be nothing but big old hearts
               C
dancing in our eyes.

C           F                                    C
In spite of ourselves, we'll end up sittin' on a rainbow
            G                              C                  F
Against all odds, Honey we're the big door prize, We're gonna spite, Our
                       C                                         G
noses right off of our faces, There won't be nothing but big old hearts
               C
dancing in our eyes.

This is a very thorough, well-transcribed tablature of this song. Thank you so much for sharing this! I'm just learning the basics of fingerpicking, and the country-blues patterns you shared has helped immensely.

Fantastic work. Wish I could find something like this for "Fish and Whistle" and "That's The Way The World Goes Round".

Sounds good to me - but when I select play this tab, I don't think it is this one. Especially the intro. Is that correct and if so where do I go to play this tab?
