www.tommywomack.com Tommy plays this song capoed on the third fret and playing in C relative to the capo. (All chords are relative to the capo.) He uses two C chords: the garden variety C you know, and another where he lifts his finger from the first fret of the B string, which is Cmaj7. When he plays F, he roots it at the third fret of the D string, rather than playing a bar chord rooted at the first fret of the low E. Keep this in mind. The descending walk at the ends of the choruses/verses starts in C, then move the root down to B (C/B), then Am, then Am with a G bass (Am/G), then F, then G again. This walk will be labeled as C C/B Am Am/G F G. Also, at the ends of the choruses/verses, he plays the F mentioned above, then brings his thumb around to fret a G on the low E string. This is marked as F/G. If you can't find the track at his website (www.tommywomack.com) or on Spotify, the song can be found on YouTube, although his solo live version varies a bit from the live album version which I've transcribed here. (Remember that he originally recorded this with his band, Daddy, and the album is called "At The Women's Club".) Have fun!
