E B E G# B E
This is a great song for beginning to learn to play slide!
Open E makes it easier to play the slide part.
There are a few faint slide fills in the first verse that I didn't
bother to write out.

Main Slide Riff:
(Repeated throughout the song with similar variations)

Slipping and sliding

Lefting and then Righting,

before it's time to go.

Are you ready for the country

(Verse)
I was talkin' to the preacher,
said God was on my side
Then I ran into the hangman,
he said it's time to die
You gotta tell your story boy,
you know the reason why.

(Chorus)
Are you ready for the country
because it's time to go?
Are you ready for the country
because it's time to go?

(Repeat slide riff until fade)
