Here are a couple of the lead guitar licks.
I don't know how to show you exactly where they go,
but you can easily find them on the recording.

OK, now I'm gonna try to put the whole song together.


Intro

Riff No 1 (4x)

Verse 1

Riff No 1 (2x)
Lazy yellow moon comin up tonight shinin through the trees

Riff No 2 (2x)
Crickets are singin and lightnin bugs are floatin on the breeze

Riff No 1 (2x)
Baby get ready

Riff No 1 (2x)
Across the field where the creek turns back by the old stump road

Riff No 2 (2x)
I'm gonna take you to a special place that nobody knows

Riff No 1 (1x)
Baby Get ready

Riff No 3 (1x)
Oooooooooooooh


Chorus:
D
You and me goin fishin in the dark, lyin on our backs and coutin the stars
G
Where the cool grass grows
D
Down by the river in the full moon light, we'll be fallin in love in the 
middle of the night
G
Just movin slow
Em                     A6
Stayin the whole night through
Em               A6       Riff No 1 (2x)
Feels so good to be with you


Verse 2
(Played just like Verse 1)

Spring is almost over and the Summer's comin, the days are gettin long
Waited all Winter for the time to be right just to bring you along
Baby get ready
It don't matter if we sit forever and the fish don't bite
We'll jump in the river and cool ourselves from the heat of the night
Baby get ready
Ooooooooooooh


Chorus

(It's played just like the first chorus, with only one difference.
In the very end it just repeats instead of Riff No 1 starting back up.
In the original recording the chorus plays over and over until it fades 
out.)

Notation Key

2b3 - bend

0h2 - hammer on

2p0 - pull off

I think it's really good. As always, I can't get the easy part; the strumming. That's what separates a natural from a technical learning. And I overanalyze and can't just freely strum for fear of looking ridiculous.
