Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Beautiful treatment of an all time classic. 
From Boz' 2013 Memphis album.
Note the nice shifts from Dmaj7 to D on the turnaround in the verses.
Also... on the album the guitar is shifted down a semitone.

A heavy rain's a-fallin'

Neon lights a-flashin'

It's life and you just got to play the ga   -ame

So I take my guitar to pass some time
D
Late at night when it's hard to rest
