Verse 1 (0:48):

 Spent the last year, Rocky Mountain Way  [Fill 1]
 Couldn't get much higher                 [Fill 1]
 Out to pasture, think it's safe to say   [Fill 1]  
 Time to open fire                        [Fill 2]

         A7                                              E7
 And we don't need the ladies, crying 'cause the story's sad. [Fill 3]
            A7                                           B7
 Cause the Rocky Mountain Way, is better then the way we had.

 Says it doesn't matter                                              [Fill 1]
 Bases are loaded and Casey's at bat, playing it play by play        [Fill 1]
 Time to change the batter                                           [Fill 2]

(This really wasn't easy, I'm not even sure if it's right to classify
this as guitar although I think it's distorted with one of those Frampton
wind pipe thingys. This is the best I could get so you have something to
play at this part.)
