Capo on 3:rd fret

C F Am G C 
F Em Am G F G C

[C] Lord I been hangin' [F] out of town [Am] in that [G] low down [C] rain
Watchin' good time [F] Charlie friend is [Am] drivin' [G] me [C] insane
Down on shady [F] Charlotte Street [Am] all the green lights [G] look [C] red
I wish I was back [F] home on the [Am] farm in my [G] feather [C] bed.

And I [C] got myself a [F] rockin' chair
To [Am] see if [G] I could [C] lose
This [F] thin [Em] dime [Am] hard [G] times
[F] Hell on [G]  Church Street [C] blues.

I found myself a picker friend that I registered James Earl
I folded up page twenty-one and stuck it in my shoe
They gave me a nickle to the poor my a good turn for the day
I folded up my own little folder threw it far away.

And I wish I had some guitar strings Old Black Diamond brand
I'd string up this old Martin box and go and join some band
But I guess I'll go and stay right here and pick and sing a while
Try to make me a little change and give them folks a smile.

The chord progression is correct, but Tony does some kind of reverse cross-picking technique that I haven't figured out. However, the lyrics in the second verse are incorrect.
"I found myself a picker friend, and I read yesterday's news.
I folded up page 21, and i stuck it in my shoes.
I gave me a nickel to the poor, my good turn for the day.
I folded up my old billfold, and threw it far away."
