The rest is similar...

Another strumming exemple from another acoustic version (opie's eye - Opie Radio)
I took the verse for this exemple:

   G                                  D
e|-3-------3-----3-3---3-3-3---3----|-2-----2-2-----2-3-2---2---2-2----|

Etc...

Structure:

This is the more straightforward structure Warren Haynes plays in 
his acoustic version at Opie Radio (Opie's eye).
Each time I write a chord, it's for 2 beats (half a bar)
If I write G G, it's four beats, one complete bar.

G G D D Em F G G
G G D D Em F G G

G D C G
G D C G
G D C G
G D Em F

G G D D C C G G
G G D D Em F G G

G D C G
G D C G
G D C G
G D Em F

G G D D C C G G
G G D D Em F G G (D chord at the last beat)

Em Em C C C C G G
Bm Bm C C F F D D

G G D D C C G G
G G D D freely: Em F G D Em F G


Lyrics:

When you can't find the light, that got you through the cloudy days,
When the stars ain't shinin' bright, you feel like you've lost you're way,
When those candle lights of home, burn so very far away,
All you got to let your soul shine, just like my daddy used to say.

He used to say soulshine, it's better than sunshine,
It's better than moonshine, damn sure better than rain.
People don't mind, we all feel this way sometimes,
Got to let your soul shine, shine till the break of day.

I grew up thinkin' that I had made, made it on my own.
Life can take the strongest man, make him feel so alone.
Now sometimes I feel a cold wind, blowin' through my achin' bones,
I think back to what my daddy said, he said "Boy, in this darkness before the dawn:"

Got your soulshine, better than sunshine,
better than moonshine, damn sure better than rain.
People don't mind, we all feel this way sometimes,
Let your soul shine, shine till the break of day.

Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness,
Like a woman has robbed him of his very soul.
A woman too, God knows, she can feel like this.
And when your world seems cold, you got to let your spirit take control.

Talking about soulshine, better than sunshine,
better than moonshine, damn sure better than rain.
People don't mind, we all feel this way sometimes,
Got to let your soul shine, yeah, shine on and on and on and on till the break of day.
