Notes:

I worked it out from the numerous acoustic versions on YouTube which differ slightly
from the Studio version: he pauses just before the chorus to give himself time to 
change to that C#minor and there's no middle 8.
The Intro is the same as the Verse.
In the second bridge he just plays the progression once through.
I just wrote out the chord shapes out for the chorus and you can play around with
the strumming pattern yourself.
I called that second chord an E/D# once and an EMaj7 once, but the chord shapes are essentially the same.
I tabbed out the mandolin part for guitar and stuck it on the end.
I didn't bother tabbing out the 'Western' sounding Middle 8 from the studio version. But the lead
guitar part is based on the C#minor Pentatonic scale and is very 'wet' with reverb if you want to 
give it a crack.

Happy (clappy) playing!

[Lyrics]


[Verse 1]

Most of my days I've spent life on the road 
Took backroad highways to meet the simple folk 
Nights ran together in a haze of drink and smoke 
So I left with the rising sun all alone

Gooooooo Goooooo


[Chorus]

Shake away, shake away the old chains in my life 
Got a new, got a new love and open eyes 
Break away, break away the old ways and live high 
Got a new course for the light


[Verse 2]

Made it out west through the desert and the snow 
How you found me I reckon someday I'll know 
You picked me up from the depth, I couldn't cope 
And You showed me a life of love, trust and hope

Gooooooo


[Chorus]

Shake away, shake away the old chains in my life 
Got a new, got a new love and open eyes 
Break away, break away the old ways and live high 
Got a new course for the light

Got a new course for the light 

Mandolin arr. for guitar (melody only)
