[Verse]
A (with Fig1 and Fig2)
I got a letter this morning, what do you reckon it read? 
It said the girl you love is dead

D                                                 A   (Fig3 Fig1 Fig3)
I got a letter this morning what do you reckon it read?
     E            D                            A (Fig3 Fig1 Fig3)
Said, Hurry hurry, because the gal you love is dead


Well I packed up my suitcase, took off down the road
When I got there she was, laying on the cooling board
Packed up my suitcase and I took off down the road
                                                   (Fig4)
When I got there she was laying on the cooling board

REPEAT VERSE WITH NO LYRICS (improvise with slide a bit)
REPEAT INTRO

It looked like ten thousand people standing around the burying ground
I didn't know I loved her, til they began to let her down
looked like ten thousand, people standing around the burying ground
I didn't know I loved her, til they began to let her down

You know it's so hard to love someone that don't love you
Don't look like satisfaction, don't care what you do
so hard to love someone that don't love you
Don't look like satisfaction, and I don't care what you do

good tab, but you forgot some of the lyrics at the end. still good tab theres not much need to tab out all the exact stuff during the instrumental parts cus it sounds mostly like improv and its more fun to improv i think.
