[Intro]

C Em F G

C G F F

C

[Verse 1]
C                                G    
These chords are old but we shake hands 
F                                G
Cause I believe that they're the good guys
C                                G
We can use all the help we can 
F                                G
So many minor chords outside 
C                                G    
I fell in love with the sound 
F                                G
Oh I love to sing along with you 
C                                G 
We got tunes we kicked around 
F                                G
We got a bucket that the tunes go through


[Chorus]
C                   Em  F
Babe we both had dry spells 
     G            C       
Hard times in bad lands 
G             F     
I'm a good man for ya 
F              
I'm a good man

C G F F x2

[Verse 2]
C                                G  
Last night there was a horse in the road 
F                                G
I was twisting in the hairpin 
C                                G  
My hands held on my mind let go
F                                G
And back to you my heart went skipping 
C                                G  
I found the inside of the road 
F                                G
Thought about the first time that I met you 
C                                G  
All those glances that we stole 
F                                G
Sometimes if you want them then you've got to 

[Chorus]
C                   Em  F
Babe we both had dry spells 
     G            C       
Hard times in bad lands 
G             F     
I'm a good man for ya 
F              
I'm a good man


[Instrumental]
C G F F

[Verse 3]
C                                G    
They shot a Western south of here
F                                G
They had him cornered in a canyon 
C                                G    
And even his horse had disappeared 
F                                G
They said it got run down by a bad bad man 
C                                G    
You're not a good shot but I'm worse 
F                                G
And there's so much where we ain't been yet 
C                                G    
So swing up on this little horse 
F                                G
The only thing we'll hit is sunset 


[Chorus]
C                   Em  F
Babe we both had dry spells 
     G            C       
Hard times in bad lands 
G             F     
I'm a good man for ya 
F              
I'm a good man

C       G         F    (x4)
Babe we both had....

C                   Em  F
Babe we both had dry spells 
     G            C       
Hard times in bad lands 
G             F     
I'm a good man for ya 
F              
I'm a good man

This one sounds right on to me, except for the Em. After some tinkering, I landed on Am7, played without the A (5th) string, and it seems to fit a little better.

Thanks for the tab! This is a fun song to play.

Great fun tab! Like the suggestion of Am7 in place Em. Also subbed in Gsus4 for G. Regardless, thanks for the tab!

If you follow the same pattern (different chords of course) as his live performances and that of his official songbook, the Em would just be another G. He carries that same progression throughout both the verses and the chorus.
