I think that this is one of the strongest songs from their debut album

ENJOY  Standard Tuning

"Tall Boots"

G                                  D
I'm a lover of yesterday, it don't matter where I lay
         C                           G
I've got tall boots, and memories to hold
G                                    D
And when the sun finally sets, I can see my cigarette
        C                          G
Burning slow like the songs on the radio

G, G/F# (this bass note walk-down happens between verse and chorus to the Em)

Em                    C
Young man, seventeen, Green eyes and blue jeans and 
D                                   G      G,G/F#, Em
Boots so old, all the miles they've seen
Em                       C      
I remember holding on to every prayer I said at dawn
     D                                 G
Like get me home, I promise I'll never leave
               C     G         D             G
I promise I'll never leave, oh where would I go
                   C     G                D
Because all of these melodies are sad and cold
              C    G  D         G
and all these stories that been told 
C        G          D
all have me growing old

G                                   D
on the dusty hood of a car, I could hear all the stars
         C                    G
Singing out of tune, with the moon
G                                 D
and the song was sad as hell, and then the stars fell
         C                          G
lighting up the road between me and you.  (G, G/F#, Em walkdown)

Em           C
Young man 23 living on amphetamines 
    D                                G            G,G/F#, Em
and eyes so black all of the sadness they've seen  
Em                       C
I remember holding on to every prayer I've said at dawn
     D                                 G
Like get me home, I promise I'll never leave

             C     G         D             G
Promise I'll never leave, oh where would I go
                 C      G             D
Because of these melodies are sad and slow
                 C    G  D         G
and all of these stories that been told
C       G           D
all have me growing old

Instrumental Break

Em                        C
I remember holding on, to every prayer I said at dawn
     D                                 G
Like get me home, I promise I'll never leave

             C     G         D             G
Promise I'll never leave, oh where would I go
                 C      G             D
Because of these melodies are sad and cold
                 C    G  D         G
and all of these stories that been told
C       G           D
all have me growing old

    C      G        D      G
Badada, dada, dada dada, dada  
(basically repeat this over this progression until the end)

This should do it.  Sorry I didn't tab the instrumental/solo!

Enjoy
