                              From here you would start the Outro ^

A:-12h14---14-12-------------------------|---------------------------------|
E:---------------------------------------|-(15)----------------------------|

   From here you start at the verse again^ 

This is the song tabbed out until 1:48 but it is basically this same 

structure repeated the whole way through with the exception of a few 

variations on those riffs in between the main verse parts.

  Outro (from 4:29)

The lap steel guitar sounds something like this...

Lyrics:
Tell me where you're goin or
  What is going wrong
I felt you leavin' before
  You'd even gone
And hold me now
  Or never ever hold me again
No more talk
  Can take me from this pain I'm in
             -
See the moonlight shinning on
  Your window pane
See it leave you as
  Faithful as it came
Please yourself so you
  Don't have to be afraid
Make amends
  Or carry on another way
             -
Tell me what you were thinkin
  To treat somebody so
The care he took the
  Lengths to which he'd go
Coals are hot to walk
  Across without your shoes
But in the end
  Know that you've got nothin to lose
