3rd fret
The other version doesn't have the little riff that is played throughout this
song and it is also wrong.  There is no E minor in this song at all, just the
 1, 4, and 5 chords
(like so many great tunes.)

CAPO 3 to match The Avett's version.

Riff used throughout:  YOU PUT IT WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE


G          D          G      G            D    G
I've never taken this curve, driving this fast before
G              D        G              C       G         D              G
A glowing stop sign but both lanes are mine no seatbelts attached to my door.

     G        D           G        G         D     G
Well my Speed meter don't work, so I'm gonna guess 95.
G               D          G       C        G             D     G
Well maybe I'll fix it and maybe I won't it depends on my being alive.

G                 D          G      G         D      G
Well my bottle of bourbon is gone.  Flew away all by itself.
G              D          G        C         G         D          G
So if ever you find it my photo behind it in memory of me on your shelf.

G           D        G       G          D         G
Well my 63' Ford is a bull.  She's 4000 pounds at least.
G         D               G              C           G          D
But metal surrenders when oak trees meet fenders and engines go through
the front seat.

G           D              G            G        D            G
Well I lost control in the curve, and a gas line broke in the wreck
G                 D          G          C            G        D
I walked from the ashes with just a few scratches my crucifix warm
on my neck.

G                     D       G         G      D         G
Well my good lord was with me tonight.  Riding beside me tonight.
G                  D             G            C             G
And now we're just talking we're hitch-hiking walking we'll see you in
D       G
Concord tonight.

G                  D             G            C
And now we're just walking we're hitch-hiking talking we'll
G               D             G    C     G
see you......in concord.......tonight.

There you go.  More accurate than the other one.  Just put the riff thingy
where it belongs.

There's a verse that comes between the verses that start "My bottle of bourbon is gone" and "My '63 Ford is a bull"

"Well it's been rainin' all day,
And it's been rainin' all night;
A slip'n slide highway and I'm movin' sideways,
I'm loose but my steering wheel's tight"
