Song: Beer For My Horses (Duet with Willie Nelson)
by Toby Keith, Scott Emerick
From: "Unleashed"

I was unsure of how to tab intro riff to this song, so I
will let someone else conribute that. I can, however, give you the chord
portion of the intro. This is my own work and is my interpretation of this
song. If you have any questions, please contact Mike Basiewicz,
wmbasie@brinet.com.
The song is in the key of  Bb, but I play it in G, capo 3rd fret.
Listen to the CD for timing, etc...
