The song is a fairly straightforward rockabilly number, but the guitar parts are far from straightforward. The left channel guitar alternates between the high, ringing playing of the intro and the interludes, and the middle-range alternative in the bridges. 
In the right channel there is a guitar with a descending figure, which can even be combined with the intro (see the end of the page for these two tabs). In the bridges, there is a trace of the "high version" in this channel, which seems to have been mixed out.

During the verses, the guitar plays the Eb chords on the backbeat:

  Eb
  :     .     .     .     
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|----8------8-----8-----8-|
|----8------8-----8-----8-|
|---10-----10----10----10-|
|-------------------------|
In some verses the return from Bb to Eb in the last line passes through Ab.

I haven't written out the different solos in the interludes, but they follow the same chord pattern as the model in the intro. It can be played in different positions, of course, but if one plays the 11-13-11-turn with the little finger and keeps a half barre on the 8th fret during the second Ab measure, it is playable as written below.

  girls  all    say you're a  worn  out   star
   Ab7                                       Eb
My pockets are loaded and Iím spendiní every dime.
            Bb7
How can you say you love someone else,
 		                         Eb
		You know itís me all the time. 
[intro]
Well, the fogís so thick you canít spy the land,
The fog is so thick that you canít even spy the land,
What good are you anyway if you canít stand up to some old businessman. 

Weddiní bells are ringiní and the choir is beginniní to sing,
Yes, the weddiní bells are ringiní and the choirís  beginniní to sing,
What looks good in the day, at night is another thing. 

Sheís lookiní into my eyes, and sheís a-holdiní my hand,
She lookiní into my eyes, sheís holdiní my hand,
She says, "You canít repeat the past,"  
	I say "You canít? What do you mean you canít? Of course, you can.Ē*)
ďWhere do you come from?Ē ďWhere do you go?Ē
Sorry, that is nothiní you would need to know.
Well, my backís been to the wall so long, it seems like it's stuck.
Why donít you break my heart one more time just for good luck? 
[intro]
I got eight carburetors, boys, Iím usiní Ďem all,
Well, I got eight carburetors and, boys, Iím usiní Ďem all,
Iím short on gas, my motorís startiní to stall. 

My dogs are barkiní, there must be someone around,
My dogs are barkiní, there must be someone around,
I got my hammer ringiní, pretty baby, but the nails ainít goiní down. 

If you got somethiní to say, speak or hold your peace,
Well, you got somethiní to say, speak now or hold your peace,
If itís information you want, you can get it from the police. 
Politicianís got on his jogginí shoes,
He must be runniní for office, got no time to lose,
Suckiní the blood out of the genius of generosity.
You been a-rolliní your eyes, you been teasiní me. 
[intro]
Standing by God's river, my soulís beginniní to shake,
Standing by God's river, my soulís beginniní to shake,
Iím countiní on you, love, to give me a break. 

Well, Iím leaviní in the morniní as soon as the dark clouds lift,
Yes! Iím leaviní in the morniní just as soon as the dark clouds lift,
Gonn' break in the roof, set fire to the place as a parting gift. 

Summer days, summer nights are gone,
Summer days, summer nights are gone,
I know a place where thereís still somethiní goiní on.

*) Here's the full quotation from The Great Gatsby:

"You can't repeat the past."
"Can't repeat the past?" he cried incredulously. "Why of course you can!"
"I'm going to fix everything just the way it was before," he said, nodding determinedly, "She'll see."
