Guitar Town tab ver. 2 with lyrics by Steve Earle - Easy chords and tabs for guitar

Steve Earle – Guitar Town tab ver. 2

Originally in G, but because of the voice of our female singer and the nice guitar riff 
I transposed it to A. So no D-dropping or a baritone guitar is needed. Thanks to Stevie 
boy walls for the original tabbing.
