   A                     D

That’s all right, I was desperate, too
    Bm                Riff 2 
I’m getting pretty sick of this interview.
   A          D      Bm             Riff 1
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
   A          D      Bm             Riff 2

   "I think she drove a new Mustang ..."

                       G        D/F#  
"Do you think I’m that stupid?" 
 E                            D
"What the hell, I’ll tell the story, again…"

CHORUS:
   A                     D
"In bar-light, she looked all right
   Bm                  Riff 1
In daylight, she looked desperate
       Am               D     
That’s all right, I was desperate, too

Then it's handclaps for a while.
Then back to chorus.  End on A.

First, this tab is great but I think the opening riff (over the verse) off of an A chord is as follows, it's subtle but I think it sounds better.

e|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|---------2---------|
D|--4--2-4-x-4p2-----| repeat 3x
A|--0--0-0-0-0-0-----|
E|-------------------|

The rest of it is dead on. Check out this youtube video. Helped me figure this out a bit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjDI1oouS8w
