Parched land on desert sand the sun was just a dot. And a little bit of

water goes a long way 'cause it's hot. Three good buddies were laughing and

smoking in the back of a rented Ford. They couldn't know they weren't

going far. (7th fret BAR for all these chords)

Each one with the money in his pocket could go out and buy himself a brand new

car. But they all held the money they had, the money they hoped would take

them very far.

Song is in Key of D so Blues Runs in B work great. Matter of fact B runs
mixed with a little D work good together. I have good luck with B runs.
Note: Buck plays smoothly fast, so get the jist of the song as tabbed and
bend a few notes, hammer on a few and play it smoothly. It is not that easy
to tab this song with feeling. I hope you listen and enjoy.
We used to practice Bm A G F#sus4 F# Bm A G A progressions while playing
the Runs, Blues licks in B and D over it just to get the feel.
