Here are a couple of the lead guitar licks. I don't know how to show you exactly where they go, but you can easily find them on the recording.

OK, now I'm gonna try to put the whole song together. Intro Riff No 1 (4x) Verse 1 Riff No 1 (2x) Lazy yellow moon comin up tonight shinin through the trees Riff No 2 (2x) Crickets are singin and lightnin bugs are floatin on the breeze Riff No 1 (2x) Baby get ready Riff No 1 (2x) Across the field where the creek turns back by the old stump road Riff No 2 (2x) I'm gonna take you to a special place that nobody knows Riff No 1 (1x) Baby Get ready Riff No 3 (1x) Oooooooooooooh Chorus: D You and me goin fishin in the dark, lyin on our backs and coutin the stars G Where the cool grass grows D Down by the river in the full moon light, we'll be fallin in love in the middle of the night G Just movin slow Em A6 Stayin the whole night through Em A6 Riff No 1 (2x) Feels so good to be with you Verse 2 (Played just like Verse 1) Spring is almost over and the Summer's comin, the days are gettin long Waited all Winter for the time to be right just to bring you along Baby get ready It don't matter if we sit forever and the fish don't bite We'll jump in the river and cool ourselves from the heat of the night Baby get ready Ooooooooooooh Chorus (It's played just like the first chorus, with only one difference. In the very end it just repeats instead of Riff No 1 starting back up. In the original recording the chorus plays over and over until it fades out.) Notation Key 2b3 - bend 0h2 - hammer on 2p0 - pull off
