I pulled lyrics straight from CowboyLyrics.com and I'm pretty sure they're wrong in a 
few spots, but I left em as is.

There are 2 or 3 guitars, I only got 1. Get creative to fill in the rest, that's what 
music is all about.

He finger picks these chords; he uses the very common walk down from C to Am almost 
every time, it's easy to hear.

Standard Tuning; Felker has a high voice so they capo almost everything, but I don't 
have one with me right now. Capo it to match your vocal range. Corrections to the chords 
are welcome.


[Intro]

(first half of verse, then second half of chorus)


[Verse 1]

C B/C  Am
  Undercover
    F               C
And blame it on the season
   C       B/C    Am
It ain't no kinda reason baby
F            G
Why come and go

      C        Am
Had a Lover
    F               C
She felt as good as trees
            C              Am
And you can ask her if its pleasing
        F               C
You can ask the wind to blow


[Chorus]

            G
And I would buy for you a diamond
     F             C
Or myself some gasoline
     G
If I can't afford you darling
       F               C
Then I can't afford to dream
          F                C
And is it time I should be moving
      F             Am
Is it time I settle down
     C              Am              F                 C
Will I sit still or will I feel the wheels a spinning round


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1 chords)

Well I ain't the brightest
Bird that ever flew
I'm just someone you knew
A road you travelled on

All the colors
They shine and fade away
Well they're just like News Years Day
They're here and then they're gone


[Chorus]

            G
And I would buy for you a diamond
     F             C
Or myself some gasoline
     G
If I can't afford you darling
       F               C
Then I can't afford to dream
          F                C
And is it time I should be moving
      F             Am
Is it time I settle down
     C              Am              F                 C
Will I sit still or will I feel the wheels a spinning round


[Instrumental] 

(same as Chorus)


[Verse 3]
(same as verse 1 chords)

Lord I love you
I wish you only knew
Well I wish you had a clue
I wish you had a clue you know

But I'm stuck here in Tulsa
With my Oklahoma blues
With a pair of concrete shoes
That got me sinking pretty low


[Chorus]

            G
And I would buy for you a diamond
     F             C
Or myself some gasoline
     G
If I can't afford you darling
       F               C
Then I can't afford to dream
          F                C
And is it time I should be moving
      F             Am
Is it time I settle down
     C              Am              F                 C
Will I sit still or will I feel the wheels a spinning round
The wheels
A spinning

Between the C and the Am in the verses, you should put a B/C chord, like:

C B/C Am
Undercover
F C
And blame it on the season
C B/C Am
It ain't no kinda reason baby
F G
Why come and go

I pretty clearly mentioned the walkdown in the intro to the song. Not everyone knows what B/C means, even if they know how to do it, and I wanted anyone to be able to play it and not be intimidated by chords they don't recognize.
