Drivin' My Life Away-Rhett Akins
'Drop D' Tuning

This is how I play it (Meaning: Probably not 100% correct, but it'll get you going)
There are many fills throughout the song and the Dropped 'D' string takes a bit of 'feeling' to get right.  
Have fun with it! 

Chord shapes I use for this song:
[D]: X00232
[G]: XX5433
[C]: X32010
[Bm]:X24432

Intro: [D]  [D]  [D]  [D]
