Guitar Town 	(Drop D tunning for lead)  Steve Earle
G
Hey pretty baby are you ready for me
                                       C(riff)A|--3-2-0~
It's your good rockin' daddy down from Tennessee
D
I'm just out of Austin bound for San Antone
         C					
With the radio blastin' and the bird dog on

A|---2/3-3-3--2/3-3-3--2/3-3-3--3-2-0-----|
E|------------------------------------4-5-|
G
There's a speed trap up ahead in Selma Town
                         C		(riff)  A|--3-2-0-
But no local yokel gonna shut me down
D
'Cause me and my boys got this rig unwound
           C                                   G
And we've come a thousand miles from a Guitar Town

SoloA|------2-0---2-5-3~ -----3-2-0-0~ -----------3-2-0
     E|-5-5-----5---------2-5----------0-0~ 1-2-5-------5-4-5~

G
Nothin' ever happened 'round my hometown
                             C		 (riff)  A|--3-2-0~
And I ain't the kind to just hang around
D
But I heard someone callin' my name one day
      C
And I followed that voice down the lost highway

G
Everybody told me you can't get far
                              C	(riff)  A|--3-2-0-
On thirty-seven dollars and a jap guitar
D
Now I'm smokin' into Texas with the hammer down 
   C                                    G
And a rockin' little combo from the Guitar Town

Solo:1

D
Hey pretty baby don't you know it ain't my fault
   C                            G
I love to hear the steel belts hummin' on the asphalt
D
Wake up in the middle of the night in a truck stop
C                         D7 (or D)
Stumble in the restaurant wonderin' why I don't stop

G
Gotta keep rockin' why I still can
                             C		(riff)  A|--3-2-0~
I gotta two pack habit and a motel tan
D
But when my boots hit the boards I'm a brand new man
C
With my back to the riser I make my stand	(drums stop)
G
Hey pretty baby won't you hold me tight
                                     C         C G D no riff 
We're loadin' up and rollin' out of here tonight
D
One of these days I'm gonna settle down
C                                       G
And take you back with me to the Guitar Town

~ means to let the note ring

Note:  The lead parts in this song are played on a Baritone Guitar.  So I dropped 
D tuned to get a similiar effect.  This should be pretty close.  Kudos to the 
other submitter, I used a lot of his tab and lowered the Octive to make it sound 
closer to the recording. The last bend on the open A string is a "behind the nut 
bend" I think.  If you listen to it slowed way down there is definitely a bend 
there.
