The challenge to this song is keeping a propulsive rhythm going throughout the song 
making it smooth and non-choppy.  I don't hear a lot of muting in the right or left hands, 
when the chords transition.

Intro Riff:

|----------------------10-10-10-10--8-8-8-8---------------|

You got it, you got it

This was a discount store, now it's turned into a cornfield
A            G
You got it, you got it
