Gimme Three Steps Acoustic Tab
This is how I play this song with only me and my acoustic guitar.
Since that is how I usually play, alone and acoustic, I would like
to present a tab that is easy and straightforward, and hopefully sounds
great, for others who generally play alone and acoustic.

D                    D
           O well the crowd cleared away and I began to pray
                      A                      A
              and the water fell down to the floor
                      D                    D
              and I'm telling you, son, it ain't no fun,
                      E                      A
              staring straight down a fourty-four.
                       D                      D
              Well, he turned and screamed at Linda Lou,
                             G                   E
              and that's the break I was looking for
                            D                   D
              and you could hear me screaming a mile away
                       A                     D
              as I was headed out toward the door.

REPEAT CHORUS.

That is pretty much it.  Mess around with it and it should sound pretty close to the 
song.  Remember this is a transcription for ONE guitar.  it sounds great on acoustic or 
electric, but if on an acoustic you really have to bend those strings.
