Shovels And Rope – Boxcar chords ver. 3

Chords:
Transpose:
Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent.

The first person to tab this got it almost completely correct but they left out a 
few chords (said they were new to guitar but they did a great job). Hope this sounds right.

Standard tuning, no capo. Harp in C.
