This is my interpretation of how to play the song. I don't guarantee that this tab is
correct, but it sounds almost exactly like the real song to me and I think it's a lot more
than other tabs of this song.

CHORUS - The 'A' chord written here is how it sounds during the solo. During the actual
the 'A' is always played as 8 eighth-notes in each measure, with the top 'e' (open)
sometimes played with it and sometimes not.

VERSE 2 - Same as VERSE 1
Bring a song and a smile for the banjo
Better get while the gettin's good
Hitch a ride to the end of the highway
Where the neons turn to wood

[Chorus]

VERSE 3 - Same as VERSE 1
You can ponder perpetual motion,
Fix your mind on a crystal day,
Always time for a good conversation,
There's an ear for what you say.

[Chorus]

BRIDGE - Same as INTRO

SOLO - 2nd guitar plays CHORUS underneath SOLO

Catch a ride to the end of the highway
And we'll meet by the big red tree,
There's a place up ahead and I'm goin'
Come along, come along with me.
