Drive-By Truckers
Song: Carl Perkins Cadillac
Album: The Dirty South

Every other tab I have ever found for this song has been in G.  They now play it 
in F because Jason Isbell doesn't play with them anymore so they usually have some 
pedal steel playing with them.

Intro:
F-(F)-Dm-C    for the (F), im not sure what you would call the chord but
F-(F)-Dm-C    Cooley just basically plays an open E string and doesnt 
barre the top of the F chord but plays the rest of the F chord, hence the walking down sound. He just plays the
first F in the intro and then lifts his 1st finger up that was barring the first fret.
F (F) DmLife ain't nothin' but a blendin' up all the ups and downs
