This tab is in Double Drop-D tuning, DADGBD.

D|--------|----------2/3--0-------0-----------|

Play this 11 times... you'll figure it out.  Play this until the chorus.

Play this three times.  It's the chorus.


Then play this part right here, its where he says "An' I ain't got no worries,
'cause I ain't in no hurry at all.

And now, the solo that took forever to tab.  It's played on a fiddle, but
this is the guitar tab.  Enjoy!

(Please note that Figure 1 is being played throughout the solo.)

Now this is the outro, both guitars play this.


 Guitar 1 plays Figure 1 three times, while Guitar two plays this:
E|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|------3-3--3----------3--3---------3---------3~~~~--------|
G|--2h4--------4p2~2h4--2--2-4---2h4---2h4p2---------4/-----|
D|-------------------------------------------0--------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------|


 Guitar two then plays this while fading out, Guitar one plays Figure 1
E|-----------------------------------13b 13b 13 10~~--------|
B|--8-6/7--------------------------------------------12-----|
G|--------7-----------7~~---8-6/7---------------------------|
D|----------9-7~~~7h9-------------7-------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------|

Then both guitars play Figure 1 for the rest of the song, which isn't much.
