A boogie

All the way in town they can hear me comin'

D                               A boogie

Ford's about to drop, she won't do no more

     Got to keep on movin' or i'll lose my mind...

Chorus (play the same as intro):

   Oooooohhhh, rockin' down the highway (x4)

After the chorus:

Then its another verse, another chorus, and we hit the solo:

    F#m  E   Bm
E|---2---0-------|
B|---2---0---3---|
G|---2---1---4---| play this pattern for the beginning 
D|---4---2---4---| and the rest is in the verse pattern
A|---4---2---2---|
E|---2---0-------|

---

I don't tab solos, but play around in F#m (I think) and you'll figure it out...
other than that that's the whole rhythm guitar for the song! enjoy!
