Note: Much of the picking seems to be improvised, as Ryan "pulls strings" throughout the changes.
There are many embellishments and variations present throughout each performance. 

[Verse 1]
Am                                                   
Moving like the fog on the Cumberland River
         G                 C                    
I was leaving on the Delta Queen
      F      C        G
And I wasn't ready to go
F         C        G 
I'm never ready to go

Am
27 years of nothing but failures
       G                     C
and promises that I couldn't keep, Oh Lord
      F      C        G  
And I wasn't ready to go
F         C        G 
I'm never ready to go

[Chorus]
        Am          
Let it ride
            F    C        G    
Let it ride easy down the road
        Am                
Let it ride
            F        C      G
Let it take away all of the darkness
        Am
Let it ride
               F      C       G         C
Let it rock me in the arms of strangers angels
F 
Until it brings me home
                                 Am - Intro Riff 
Let it ride. Let it roll, Let it go

[Verse 2]
Am                                                             
Loaded like a sailor tumbling off a ferryboat
G                     C                     
I was at the bar till three, Oh Lord
      F      C        G  
And I wasn't ready to go
F         C        G 
I'm never ready to go

Am 
Tennessee's a brother to my sister Carolina
       G                 C
Where they were gonna bury me
      F      C        G  
And I wasn't ready to go
F         C        G 
I'm never ready to go

[Chorus]
        Am          
Let it ride
            F    C        G    
Let it ride easy down the road
        Am                
Let it ride
            F        C      G
Let it take away all of the darkness
        Am
Let it ride
               F      C       G         C
Let it rock me in the arms of strangers angels
F 
Until it brings me home
                                 Am - Intro Riff 
Let it ride. Let it roll, Let it go

[Bridge]
F 
I wanna see you tonight
F 
Dancing in the endless moonlight
      C                 G
In a parking lot in the headlights of cars
F
Some place on the moon
F 
Where they moved the drive-in theatre
        C                                    
Where I left the car that I can't find
    G
but I still got the keys to

[Chorus]
        Am          
Let it ride
            F    C        G    
Let it ride easy down the road
        Am                
Let it ride
            F        C      G
Let it take away all of the darkness
        Am
Let it ride
               F      C       G         C
Let it rock me in the arms of strangers angels
F 
Until it brings me home
                                 Am - Intro Riff 
Let it ride. Let it roll, Let it go

Good job here... one nit ...
In the live videos I've seen, Ryan seems to play one chord different on the fourth line of the chorus:
F C F
Let it take away all of the darkness
