CAPO 3

[Intro]

G G G  C G  G G G  D G
G G G  C G  G G G  D G


[Verse 1]

G                      C         G
Well a man come on the 6 o'clock news
G                              D           G     
Said somebody's been shot, somebody's been abused
G
Somebody blew up a building
         C       G
Somebody stole a car
G
Somebody got away
         D              G         Em
Somebody didn't get too far yeah
            D       G
They didn't get too far


[Verse 2]

G                                  C      G
Grandpappy told my pappy, back in my day, son
G                           D              G
A man had to answer for the wicked that he done
G
Take all the rope in Texas
       C        G 
Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys
          D           G       Em             D         G
Hang them high in the street     for all the people to see 


[Chorus]

D                                   C      G
Justice is the one thing you should always find
           C              G
You got to saddle up your boys
           D           G
You got to draw a hard line
         D                              C       G
When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune
      C        G           D     G
We'll all meet back at the local saloon
      G                      C          G
We'll raise up our glasses against evil forces
       Em              C                G
Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses


[Verse 3]

G                               C     G
We got too many gangsters doing dirty deeds
                                        D            G
We've got too much corruption, too much crime in the streets
G                                       C               G
It's time the long arm of the law put a few more in the ground


G                                     D          G     Em
Send 'em all to their maker and he'll settle 'em down
            D             G
You can bet he'll set 'em down 'cause


[Chorus]

D                                   C      G
Justice is the one thing you should always find
           C              G
You got to saddle up your boys
           D           G
You got to draw a hard line
         D                              C       G
When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune
      C        G           D     G
We'll all meet back at the local saloon
      G                      C          G
We'll raise up our glasses against evil forces
       Em              C                G
Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

Em             C                G
whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

D                                   C      G
Justice is the one thing you should always find
           C              G
You got to saddle up your boys
           D           G
You got to draw a hard line
         D                              C       G
When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune
      C        G           D     G

We'll raise up our glasses against evil forces
       Em              C                G
Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

Em             C                G
whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

That's a tricky sounding part of the song, I remember having issues deciding when I made this tab. Listening to the song I think the player slides from "Em" down to "F." so I kinda intermix the 2 when I play it myself.

I spent 3 years and more in the early 60's learning songs from 45 records for our band which included hearing diminished and augmented chords the Beatles were playing and also developed an ear playing chords to my dad's steel playing.
Definitely an F. Toby Keith actually does it in Bb so it goes to Ab. If there is a Gm (Em) in there it is really quick. Put the song on and play an Ab on "whiskey" (Ab bass is there too)
Keep on playin'!!
