NOTE: The original tab I had posted below was done in a rush around 10 years ago. I just re-visited the song and also made part corrections and additions. Ns have included my interpretation of the an initial 2 fills. I believe every one of the fills are played end the D chord. Over there are about 15 filling in this song and I think there are 3 guitars, a fiddle and also a harmonica. At the very least one that the guitars is in drop D tuning. Chords Used
