Hi there!  This is a good song from Toby Keith and
it's really easy to play too.  


The intro is palm muted and sort of picked and strummed.
I just "wing it" since I can't pick and it still sounds 
good:)

UPDATE-
**I've changed the line "I'll come home one day and find you" 
to- A(sus4) Em(7) D(/F#) G  A.  It's easier to get the D/F# in 
there when playing the A and Em as sus4 and 7.  Also changed the 
A to an F#m like suggested in the comments below!  Thanks weswes088
and jared5595  :)

I'm llguitar on instagram or COME VISIT @

Standard Tuning
No Capo


Intro-
D (I palm mute intro and verses)


D
Walked downtown in my broke down shoes
       F#m
To the Side Street Pub with the bar band blues
G
Take a back seat at the front door table
A
Order me a Bud and shot of Black Label
D
Close this place down once again
F#m
Sittin' here wishin' you'd walk right in
G
Down my shot, shoot my beer
        A
I ain't gotta go home but I can't stay here


(Stop muting)
       G                            A
It's a short, short walk down to my second home
         G
But that boulevard gets longer 
            A             G A
When you're walkin' back alone


D                      A
And I don't know where you might be
Bm                     G            D
Where ever it is it'll be without me
              Asus4              Em7 D/F# G    A   
Keep thinkin' I'll come home one day and  find you
D                  A
Long as I got that neon light
Bm                    G
Shinin' like a beacon in the night
  Em                          A
I know I can make it downtown by myself
              G                       D    G
'Cause if you don't know where you're goin'
          A                D -muted
You might end up somewhere else


D
Kickin' off my shoes stumblin' through the front door
F#m
Knowin' too well the kind of night I'm in for
G
Cubs got beat again on Sports Center
   A
My bedroom's cold as my TV dinner



G                            A
One more cigarette and I'll kill the light
G                                A              G A
And I lay there wishin' you were sleepin' by my side

D                  A
I don't know where you might be
Bm                   G            D
Wherever it is it'll be without me
              Asus4              Em7 D/F# G    A
Keep thinkin' I'll come home one day and  find you
D                   A
Long as I got that front porch light
Bm                    G
Shinin' like a beacon in the night
  Em                          A
I know I can make it home all by myself
              G                       D    G
'Cause if you don't know where you're goin'
          A                Bm... GM. G... GM. Bm... D.  Em7. D/F#. G.  A.   
You might end up somewhere else    (dots = beats per chord.  Helps get the timing down)
                                     GM-[x55430]as oppossed to G-[320033] 

(*Muted)
D*                       A*
Girl, I don't know where you might be
Bm*                  G*           D*
Wherever it is it'll be without me
              Asus4*             Em7 D/F# G    A
Keep thinkin' I'll come home one day and  find you
D                   A
Long as I got that front porch light
Bm                    G
Shinin' like a beacon in the night
  Em                          A
I know I can make it home all by myself
              G                       D    G
'Cause if you don't know where you're goin'
          A                D    G  
You might end up somewhere else

          D    G
Somewhere else
                           D    G
You might end up somewhere else
          D    G    G G G  -tough to get the timing! Play along with the song, it helps :)

Try a D/F# after the Em in the chorus, it's a walk-up

@weswes088- Your right about the "walk-up", thanks:) Let me know how you're playing the D/F#. Em7 [020000] sounds good too.

200232, or you can just play 20023x if you have trouble getting all those notes in. The change is kinda quick in this song, so you might have to cheat a little
