Wail and Ride - Grayson Capps

NOTE 1: I could not find lyrics for this song anywhere, this is my interpretation. 
The name "Purslane" was derived from a character in the movie: "A Love Song for 
Bobbie Long", in which Grayson Capps wrote and composed the title song. His 
father, Ronald Everett Capps, wrote the screenplay for the movie. However, it 
sounds as tho the "s" in "Purslane" is silent in the recording.

NOTE 2: The song was acually recorded in Dm (NOT Am, as shown), however: I believe 
the band used non-standard tuning (low E tuned to D?)

(Intro)
Am - Am - Am - Am - Am - Am - Am - Am

(Verse 1)
Am
Willie John, Willie John, I do belive it's time
   E7                     D              Am
We head out in the woods, clear cut your pine
(Verse 2)
Am
Purslane, Purslane, (I) do believe it's true
                E7               D              Am
We ain't got no money, it's, the thing we gotta do.
(Verse 3)
Am
Willie John, Willie John, I do belive it's time
    E7                        D                  Am
You called up the doctor, 'to have this child of mine.
(Verse 4)
Am
Purslane, Purslane, I'll be by your side.
E7                                  D             Am
Ain't no doctor coming, we're gonna take a little ride
(Chorus)
            D              Am                D              Am
We're gonna ride, wail and ride. We're gonna ride, wail and ride
        E7                        Am
Come on down, ........by the riverside
(Verse 5)
Am
Come on in, come on in, take you a swim
        E7                               D            Am
You can hang up all your clothes on that black willow limb
(Verse 6)
Am
Muddy shores, muddy sores, clingin' 'tween my toes
         E7                          D           Am
Ain't no tellin' where that muddy Missippi river flows
(Verse 7)
Am
Winter sun, winter sun, shine, keep me warm
      E7               D            Am
Got a boy child comin' early in the morn'.
(Chorus)
            D              Am                D              Am
We're gonna ride, wail and ride. We're gonna ride, wail and ride
        E7                        Am
Come on down, ........by the riverside

(Instrumental)
Am - Am - Am - Am - Am - Am - Am - Am - G - G

Am - Am - Am - Am
(Verse 8)
Am
Dark eyes, dark eyes,  what do you see?
      E7                       D            Am
See a newborn baby 'neath that black willow tree
(Verse 9)
Am
Purslane, Purslane, I heard you wail
E7                     D             Am
All the way down, that pine needle trail
(Verse 10)
Am
Willie John, Willie John, I hear what you say
          E7                                D               Am
We gonna name that boy "Waylon" cause I was wailin' all the way
(Chorus)
            D              Am                D              Am
We're gonna ride, wail and ride. We're gonna ride, wail and ride
        E7                        Am
Come on down, ........by the riverside
(Chorus)
            D              Am                D              Am
We're gonna ride, wail and ride. We're gonna ride, wail and ride
        E7                        Am
Come on down, ........by the riverside

Do you by chance have the chords for Give It To Me from the same album? It seems to start with an Em and B7 but I can't figure it past that. I'd really appreciate it if you know it.
