"A Fistful Of Vinyl Sessions"

This is my first tab. Tabbed mainly by eye.
Most probably wrong, hit me with corrections.

Chords used
Am (x02210) 
Am7 (x02213)
(Don't worry about hitting the top E string on any of these)
G (320003)
F (x33211),without barring and (133211) in the break

Am F Am G [x2]

He also plays Am7 before changing from Am to other chords in the intro

(most downstrokes are muted)

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill
                         Am (not muted)
He seems too blue to fly
     F                  Am
The midnight train is whining low
                G        Am
I'm so lonesome I could cry

I've never known a night so long
                          Am (not muted)
The time it's crawling by
     F                 Am
The moon has ducked behind a cloud
              G        Am (not muted)
To hang it's head and cry


(Again Am7 before changing)
Am F Am G [x2]


Have you ever seen the robin weep
                       Am (not muted)
As leaves begin to die?
      F                    Am
That means, he's lost the will to live
                G        Am  (no more muting after that G)
I'm so lonesome I could cry

And the silence of a falling star
                       Am7 Am
Lights up a purple sky
    F             Am
And as I wonder where you are
                G        Am
I'm so lonesome I could cry 

        Am      G        Am  (one stroke each)
I'm so lonesome I could cry
