Since there wasn't an accurate tab of this song on this site, and since www.olga.net
did have an accurate one, here it is.  I didn't transcribe this.  I suppose this
SeanBrown guy did.  But anyway, here it is.  Plus a link to the site off of which this
tab came.

From: "Sean Brown" 
Subject: a/allman_brothers_band/blue_sky.tab

This is the song off the 1972 recording by the Allman Brothers
Band, "Eat A Peach". This song already has two chord files on the
OLGA, but for this one, I attempted to the best of my ability to tab
all the lead parts for the song, including the dual lead guitar breaks
and the extended solo.

  "Blue Sky" by Dicky Betts, copyright 1972 (Capricorn Records)
              (96 bpm)  5:10

Note: It sounds to me like there are two lead guitars in the intro.
         There is one dominant one while the other seems to be
         muddled in the background. There is also an organ part. It's
         hard to hear both of the guitars, so I only wrote it for one.

[Verse]

E               B       A            E
Walk ...
E                  B          A
They ...
A
it's going, no no
