Sweet Home Alabama (Ronnie Van Zandt & Ed King) as performed by Lynyrd
Skynyrd 
1974 MCA Records Inc.  MCA-40258(MC 2685) produced by Al Kooper
From the MCA LP "Second Helping" MCA-413
the basic riff is as follows

    q   q   h          q   q   h           q   q   h           q   q   h
G|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|
D|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|
A|---5---5---r-------|---3---3---r-------|-------------------|----------3--------|
E|-------------------|-------------------|---3---3---r-------|---3---3-----------|

[which becomes]
    q   q   h           q   q   h           q   q   h           e e e e q  q
G|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|
D|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|-------0h2-0-------|
A|---5---5---r-------|---3---3---r-------|-------------------|---0h2---------2---|
E|-------------------|-------------------|---3---3---r-------|-------------------|
those two riffs alternate in the verse.

(this riff follows the first verse and comes a couple times afterwards)
