I just discovered these guys yesterday, and I am listening to this song for
the first time right now.  I'm gonna tab it for you. I think these guys are
pretty damn good and I like this style of rocking alt-country they are
making.  Here we go

Standard Tuning - This song is just the same 3 chords with a catchy riff
USE POWER CHORDS THROUGHOUT
Intro and Main riff:  Repeat this twice as intro

e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-----4-2-4p2---2-4-----4-2-4p2---2-----4-2-4p2---2-4--------------------|
A--4----------4------4----------4----4----------4------------------------|
E--2-----------------2---------------2-----------------------------------|

e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G--2-2-2-2--4-4-4--------------------------------------------------------|
D--2-2-2-2--4-4-4--------------------------------------------------------|
A--0-0-0-0--2-2-2--0-----------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Verse:  Below note the A note after 7 F# power chords.  The third time
notice no A, it just moves straight to the A power chord after 8 F#'s

  F#                F#               F#               A        B
e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--4-4-4-4-4-4-4----4-4-4-4-4-4-4----4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--7-7-7-7--9-9-9--7--|
E--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-5--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-5--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--5-5-5-5--7-7-7--5--|

Chorus:

F#                 A       B
Maybe down by the old oak tree
F#                            A    B
They'll cut my hair when they bury me
F#             A      B
Pack me up and set me out to sea


Then return back to main riff and repeat verses and riff and chorus as
necessary.

The guitar/harmonica solo/break thing just repeats the F#, A, B progression
with some basic and simple stuff going on over top which I'm not going
to tab.

This should lay it out for you fairly well.  I was going to pull the lyrics
off of a website, but they are terribly wrong so you will have to decipher
those for yourself.  A cool and very simple riff.

Enjoy,
Jifigz

The rythym is just a shell as usaul with my tabs. Change it up as much as you wish...I like to cut them in half and still accent the important notes. As long as you play it smoothly and get the time right it will sound good. Good luck

At the end of the riff the lead guitar throws in this little fill over the A and B chords. Great tab btw!
