Comin' to you
On a dusty road
Good lovin'
I got a truckload
And when you get it
You got somethin'
So don't worry

Got what I got
The hard way
And I'll make it better
Each and every day
So, honey
Don't you fret
'Cause you ain't seen
Nothin' yet

[repeat chorus]

[Verse 3]
I was brought up
On a side street (listen, now)
I learned how to love
Before I could eat
I was educated
At Woodstock*
When I start lovin'
Oh, I can't stop

Some of its right but u got the verse rythym wrong and the chorus lead parts aren't entirely right. Still a good tab and an awesome song..
