Okay. The verse is the same as the intro, but you hold those Bm? chords, no 12 string
over them. Do this for 3 verses, the fourth is:

Em----Em----Gmaj---Amaj---- Then

I'd find an open space for me to live out all my dreams
            A chord diagramE minorEm                   Gmaj            Amaj

Then the chorus, which is as follows. *note, the guitar is kept in time, the singer
I think about 1/4 measure before the repeat of the chorus.

Lucky man         Strong man    Tear      Weaker  /
Dmaj (7th fret)   A chord diagramA augmentedA             A chord diagramB minorBm        A chord diagramG+G       / 2 times

Then there is this

Iremember all the things that I been through
   EM                                 Amaj
Gave myself to all those people I once knew
         A chord diagramE minorEm              Gmaj          Amaj      Amaj

Here is the fun!! the first Rossington lead.
The backup for here is as follows:

The lead is this: *not in time with the chords above*

Repeat the verse and the chorus.

Repeat the chorus but DO NOT SING IT. This is the fun part for us guitarist, the 2nd
for Rossington. you repeat the ENTIRE chorus as the back up for the guitar and piano. the
is as follows: * If you want to try to figure out the piano, it is in A chord diagramDmDm Aoleon.*

Piano

Then you do the chorus as follows:

Lucky man         Strong man    Tear      Weaker  /
Dmaj (7th fret)   A chord diagramA augmentedA             A chord diagramB minorBm        A chord diagramG+G       / 2 times

then you do this :

Im a lucky man, I've given all I can
     Dmaj            Amaj             A chord diagramB minorBm Amaj     Gmaj

Gary lead over the above, it is as follows

e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------15~15-15-14~14-14-12---------------|(Let feedback)
G-9B-9B~~~9RB-7-9-9B-9----------14-16------------------------------------|
D-------------------------14-16------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Now is the very ending, you repeat the intro 1 time, then play the verse over and over
you fade out. Hughie Thomasson played lead here; And it is on the A chord diagramB minorBm Aoleon scale, very simple.
