This is the verse and the chorus.
Play around with the chords a bit.
The acoustic is tuned (low to high): DADGBD
Where you see the ***, that's where the verse repeats to.

This little thing comes in right after "We're gonna hit
the road one last time", it's the only major alteration
of the verse chords the second time around.  Just listen
and you'll hear the harmonics.

Now, here's the guitar part underneath the "Ooooh____" part.
This keeps repeating for a while.

That's about it for this song.
Just play a verse and chorus, verse and chorus,
then the Oooooh bridge, then a verse and chorus,
and end on the Oooooh part.  Good luck!

Lyrics:

Once I was young and so unsure
Tried any ill to find a cure
An old man told
Tried to scold me
Woa, son, don't wade too deep
in Bitter Creek
Bitter Creek

Out where the desert meets the sky
Is where I go when I wanna hide
Oh peyote (oh peyote, oooh)
She tried to show me (tried to show me)
You know there ain't no cause to weep
At Bitter Creek
Bitter Creek

Oooooh___
Oooooh___

We're gonna hit the road one last time
We can walk right in, and steal 'em blind
All that money (all that money)
No more runnin' (no more runnin')
I can't wait to see the old man's face
When I win the race
Bitter Creek

Oooooh___
Oooooh___

repeats till end
