Ive been fiddling around with this lately as it seems everyone else who's done a 
tab couldnt quite find the right key. The first version i'm going to do is the way 
Justin actually plays it himself, ill include a link so you can see him play it 
for youself. The reason everyone was struggling is because he plays it a HALF STEP 
DOWN. It can also be played without tuning down (which ill post below the original)

Justin playing it live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_sh06HLXZ8

Im also going to include the intro for those who have a second guitar player or 
just want to know how to play it.

AGAIN TUNE A HALF STEP DOWN

All the chords are standard except this one we'll call Eb/G


   Em/G
eb|--3--|
Bb|--3--|
Gb|--0--|
Db|--2--|
Ab|--2--|
Eb|--0--|


One last side note- you'll hear the 5th fret of the high e string being played 
with every chord in the verses. That is his guitarist playing that note. The way 
ive written it out is exactly how Justin plays the song. (the alternate way to 
play it hits the note but doesnt sound nearly as good, again scroll past the first 
version.)


Intro:

       (D)             (A)             (Em/G)         (G)

eb|--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------|
Bb|8/10~~--------|------------8b|8~----------5v|\3v-----------|
Gb|-------9/11\9~|--------------|--------------|--------------|
Db|--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------|
Ab|--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------|
Eb|--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------|


Verse:

      D                                         A
I've been on the Grand Ole Opry, I've played a show with ZZ Top
Em/G                          G
Went on tour with Skynyrd and man they still rock
         D                              A
Shot the bull with Bocephus, before he climbed up on his jet
             Em/G                                   G
Played south Florida with Alan Jackson, That's some things that you never 
            Bm                A                  G              A
forget, And all that stuff it makes you feel real good, But not near as good



Chorus:


                 D                                 A
As flyin' down a back road, With some buddies from back home
                 Bm                             G
A splash of Jack in my Coke, Catchin' brim on a Zebco
                   D                         A
Spottin' deer in a hay field, After church a Sunday meal
               Bm        G              D           A
Huggin' mama before I go, Flyin' down a back road


Verse:


D                                    A
Up there in Des Moines, they knew my songs line by line
       Em/G                                   G
I just stood there in the fake smoke, Another dream came true that night
      D                     A
I've seen so many places, I thought I'd never see
        Em/G                      G
All the way from California to as far as you can go East
    Bm                A                   G               A
And all that stuff it makes you feel real good, But not near as good...



Chorus:


                 D                                 A
As flyin' down a back road, With some buddies from back home
                 Bm                             G
A splash of Jack in my Coke, Catchin' brim on a Zebco
                   D                         A
Spottin' deer in a hay field, After church a Sunday meal
               Bm        G              D         
Huggin' mama before I go, Flyin' down a back road



      Bm                 A              G
I'm a lucky man, I got a real good life
             A                G                  Em/G
With all the things I've done nothin' gets me as high...


Chorus:


                 D                                 A
As flyin' down a back road, With some buddies from back home
                 Bm                             G
A splash of Jack in my Coke, Catchin' brim on a Zebco
                   D                         A
Spottin' deer in a hay field, After church a Sunday meal
               Bm        G              D          A
Huggin' mama before I go, Flyin' down a back road
                  Em/G    G    D
Oh, flyin' down a back road





Now for the alternate version if you don't want to tune down (as i said before the 
tradeoff is it doesnt sound as good but you dont have to tune and you hit that 
note on the high e string that his guitarist plays throughout)

Capo on the 1st fret

Chords used:


Verse: follow the lyrics above and trade out this chord progression

    C/G      G     Dm/F     F/G
e|---3---|---3---|---3---|---3---|
B|---1---|---3---|---1---|---1---|
G|---0---|---0---|---2---|---2---|
D|---2---|---0---|---0---|---3---|
A|---3---|---2---|---0---|-------|
E|-------|---3---|-------|-------|

or if you dont like that third fret on the high e that Justin's guitarist plays 
just play a regular C, G, Dm/F, F progression. The Dm/F is the only tricky one and 
that would change to

   Dm/F
|---1---|
|---1---|
|---2---|
|---0---|
|---0---|
|-------|



Pre Chorus:


    Am                G               F                  G
And all that stuff it makes you feel real good, but not near as good



Chorus:

Again follow the lyrics above but use the progression: C, G, Am, F
