Bruce Springsteen - Erie Canal tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Chords posted so far just aren't quite right.
It's mainly good old chord I (Em) and V (B7)
The Em/B is optional as the chord inversion comes from the bass playing a B in the 
but playing solo it sounds 'right' without the low E sounding.

This is my first tab on the web - so be easy on me!
