THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR!! A COMPLETE TAB OF LUCKY MAN!!

This song is in the key of B minor Aoleon. IT IS TUNED IN Eb TUNING-(down a half step) I 
using a 12-string guitar just as skynyrd, I do and it sound fantastic! I admit, some 
are not perfect, but this is to the best of my ability.

Chords:
 Dmaj   ???   Bm?  Dmaj  Amaj   Bm  Gmaj   Em
e 10   e 9    e 7  e -   e 5   e 2  e 3   e 0
B 10   B 10   B 7  B -   B 5   B 2  B 3   B 0
G 11   G 9    G 7  G 7   G 6   G 3  G 4   G 0
D 12   D 11   D 9  D 7   D 7   D 4  D 5   D 2
A 12   A 9    A 9  A 5   A 7   A 4  A 5   A 2
E 10   E -    E 7  E -   E 5   E 2  E 3   E 0

Key : Bm Aoleon

Intro chords :

   Dmaj (12th fret)   ???          Bm?        Bm?

e-------10-------------9--------C--------C---------10-|
B-10--------10------9------9----H--------H---10/12----|
G--------------11-----9---------O--------O---------7--|
D----12---12-------11----11-11--R--------R---7/9------|
A-12----------------------------D--------D------------|
E-------------------------------S--------S------------|

e-------10-------------9--------C--------C-9/10-7-----|
B-10--------10------9------9----H--------H------------|
G--------------11-----9---------O--------O-6/7 -4-----|
D----12---12-------11----11-11--R--------R------------|
A-12----------------------------D--------D------------|
E-------------------------------S--------S------------|

Okay. The verse is the same as the intro, but you hold those Bm? chords, no 12 string 
over them. Do this for 3 verses, the fourth is:

Em----Em----Gmaj---Amaj---- Then

I'd find an open space for me to live out all my dreams
            Em                   Gmaj            Amaj

Then the chorus, which is as follows. *note, the guitar is kept in time, the singer 
I think about 1/4 measure before the repeat of the chorus.

Lucky man         Strong man    Tear      Weaker  \/
Dmaj (7th fret)   A             Bm        G       /\ 2 times

Then there is this

Iremember all the things that I been through
   EM                                 Amaj
Gave myself to all those people I once knew
         Em              Gmaj          Amaj      Amaj

Here is the fun!! the first Rossington lead.
The backup for here is as follows:

Dmaj (7th fret)   A             Bm        G

The lead is this: *not in time with the chords above*

e--------------------------------------------17---------17B-17B~~~~~-|
B------------------------------------------17B~-17RB-15--------------|
G-RB9-9B-9B~9B-9BR-7-9-9B-9-9~~------14-16---------------------------|
D--------------------------------/16---------------------------------|
A--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat the verse and the chorus.

Repeat the chorus but DO NOT SING IT. This is the fun part for us guitarist, the 2nd 
for Rossington. you repeat the ENTIRE chorus as the back up for the guitar and piano. the 
is as follows: * If you want to try to figure out the piano, it is in Dm Aoleon.*

e-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------17B-17B-17B-17BRB-P15-|
G-9B-9B~~~~9BRB-P7-9-9B-9~9~9~9~/-------14-16-----------------------|
D-----------------------------------/16-----------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------|

e---------------------------------------------------------------------|

G-------------------7-9-9B-9B----9B~~~9BRB-P7---9-7-------------------|
D-----------------/9--------------------------9-----9-7-7~~~~~~~~~~~~-|
A---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------|

Piano

Then you do the chorus as follows:

Lucky man         Strong man    Tear      Weaker  \/
Dmaj (7th fret)   A             Bm        G       /\ 2 times

then you do this :

Im a lucky man, I've given all I can
     Dmaj            Amaj             Bm Amaj     Gmaj

Gary lead over the above, it is as follows

e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------15~15-15-14~14-14-12---------------|(Let feedback)
G-9B-9B~~~9RB-7-9-9B-9----------14-16------------------------------------|
D-------------------------14-16------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Now is the very ending, you repeat the intro 1 time, then play the verse over and over 
you fade out. Hughie Thomasson played lead here; And it is on the Bm Aoleon scale, very simple.

I HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS SONG VERY MUCH, JUST AS I DO!! Please watch Bobbycook13 on 
I will be posting this hopefully soon. Have a great day all!!
