Notes:

-Bar lines indicate measures of 4/4 time.
-Dots (...) located under any staff are for timing, and indicate where the
 downbeats (1234) fall.
-Guitar 1 is the main guitar part. I put the Guitar 1 part on the lower 
 staff (of double-staffed parts) so that it would be directly above the
 lyrics.
-In some parts of the song, there are 3 guitars playing, but I kept the
 tab to two guitar parts.

About the artist behind Swamp Music Tab:

Lynyrd Skynyrd (pronounced /ˌlɛnɚdˈskɪnɝd/,Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd) is an American Southern rock band. The band became prominent in the Southern United States in 1973, and rose to worldwide recognition before several members, including lead vocalist and primary songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, were killed in a plane crash in 1977 near McComb, Mississippi. A tribute band was formed in 1987 for a reunion tour with Johnny Van Zant, Ronnie's younger brother, at the helm, and continues to record music today.

The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006, with members Gary Rossington and Billy Powell, former members Ed King, Bob Burns, and Artimus Pyle, and deceased members Ronnie Van Zant, Allen Collins, Steve Gaines, and Leon Wilkeson.
