So this song is (intentionally) played pretty sloppily and aggressively, but I 
still tried to tab it out as best I could. 

Tuning: D Standard (Whole Step Down)

The Rhythm plays the same 2 easy open chords the entire time. The picking pattern 
is easy enough to figure out.  I'll put it first. 
Chords Used: (The chord names might be wrong but comment and I'll correct)

   Em7       Cadd9
e| 3       e| 3
b| 3       b| 3
g| 0       g| 0
d| 2       d| 2
a| 2       a| 3
E| 0       E| X


Em7 Cadd9 Em7 Cadd9
                            Em7
The Whiskey burns going down
                            Cadd9
Old man pour me another round
                            Em7
Cause it's my last night in town
                            Cadd9
And I ain't thinking of slowing down.
                            Em7
No, I am fixing to drown

Repeat verse ad nauseum 

So thats all the rhythm does over and over again.



The lead is not much more exciting 


"The whiskey burns going down..."

                                
Verse 1
e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------13-13-13----------|
G|---12-12-12-12---5-5--55-----------------------|
D|-----------------------------10-10-10----------|
A|---10-10-10-10---3-3--33-----------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

Repeat until "No I ain't thinkin, I'm fixin to" where the lead has this little transition. 

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------13---12--8/10--13------12-12-12-12----------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------10----9--5/7---10------10 10 10 10----------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then on I'm fixing to drown..."
Verse 2
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---12-12-12-12-12---------12-12-12-12\10-10-10-10/13-13-13-13-12-12-12-12--|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----9--9--9--9--9----------9--9--9--9--7--7--7--7-10-10-10-10--9--9--9--9--|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
"I'm gonna make my momma proud"
Verse 3
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------12-10--12-10--12-10--12-10--7-10------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------9--7---9--7---9--7---9--7--4--7------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Go back to verse 1

On "I ain't no coward..."
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--13---12--8/10--13------12-12-12-12--13---12--8/10--13------12-12-12-12-15|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--10----9--5/7---10------10 10 10 10--10----9--5/7---10------10 10 10 10-12|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then during the interlude (if you tap it you can get the sound they have on the record. 
e|--14--15--10---14--15--10---14--15--10---14--15--10-14--15--10---14--15--10|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


After that, it repeats the verse again and you're done. Really easy.
