This part is actually the bass before the rhythm guitar comes in.

                                             V1      They shot a movie
                                             V2      Out at the speedway

E|-x-|   You know the part where Gord is kinda talkin to himself
B|-3-|   "How do I explain this, how do I put it into words, 
G|-4-|   It's one thing or another but it's neither this nor that"
D|-2-|   Well this is the chord that is wailing away behind it.
A|-x-|   And if this ain't it then slide it up a fret or two
E|-x-|   Like I said, I don't have my guitar here but I'm pretty sure 
         that the shape of the chord is right.

Rod,
    I was just looking at what you sent me on Blow At High Dough and 
I don't understand what part it is.  Is it the beginning rhythm? I 
know the Intro and I think it goes like this:

E--------I-----------I--------I--------I
B--12----I---(12)----I--(12)--I--(12)--I            
G--------I-----------I--------I--------I
D--------I-----------I--------I--------I                             
A--------I-----------I--------I--------I
E--------I-----------I--------I--------I

This is the part where I think the base is playing just before the 
words start. Repeat this first part once more while the lyrics are 
beginning.

Next the second guitar comes in and plays something like this:

         Everybody was..          For miles..            Out at..
E-------I--------------I----------I---------I----------I-------I 
B---2---I------(2)-----I---2/4----I--(4)----I-4---2/4--I--(4)--I 
G-------I--------------I----------I---------I----------I-------I
D-------I--------------I----------I---------I----------I-------I
A-------I--------------I----------I---------I----------I-------I       
E-------I--------------I----------I---------I----------I-------I

           Some kind..        Well I ain't no movie star..
E----------I--------I--------I--------------------------I
B--4--2/4--I--(4)---I---8/7--I--(7)----------9-------11-I 
G----------I--------I--------I--------------------------I
D----------I--------I--------I--------------------------I
A----------I--------I--------I--------------------------I
E----------I--------I--------I--------------------------I

 But I ..            YEA I CAN...
E--(11)---I--------I----------I
B---------I--------I----------I
G---------I---2----I--(2)-----I
D---------I---2----I--(2)-----I
A---------I---0----I--(0)-----I
E---------I--------I----------I

I THINK THE MAIN RHYTHM GOES AS FOLLOWS 

E
B
G 4  4  4  4 4 4 4 4
D 4  4  4  4 4 4 4 4
A 2  2  0  2 2 0 2 0  
E
 
At least it is how I play it and it sounds good to me any suggestions 
or corrections?

haha, the "one thing or another but neither this nor that" part is from "i'll believe in you (or i'll be leaving you tonight) not blow at high dough.
