This is a great song Live.  On the river album it's played in the key of G,
 when they play it live it's in the Key of F.  This tab is for the live 
verion, but I'll include chords for the album version as well.

Now for the chords I use a capo on the first fret because I hate playing 
bar chords.  So, instead of playing F, Bb, and C, with the capo on 
I play E, A and Bsus.  If you're playing the studio version, the 
chords are G, C, and D.

So, the chords translate like this:
 With 1st fret capo
F  = E
Bb = A
C  = bsus

 Studio Version
F  = G
Bb = C
C  = D

F
Well there she sits buddy just a-gleamin' in the sun
Bb                            F
There to greet a workin' man when his day is done
F
I'm gonna pack my pa. I'm gonna pack my aunt.
    Bb                         C        F
And we'll take em' down to the cadillac ranch.

Well buddy when I die, throw my body in the back.
Bb                      C          F
Ride me to the junkyard in my cadillac.

Cadillac. Cadillac.
Bb             F

F
Open up. Your engines let em' roar.
Bb                            C           F
Tearin' up the highway like a big old dinosaur.
