Listen to the song for the cadence, it's a pretty typical country/blues chord cadence.

Every Friday night there's a steady cloud of dust that leads back to a field filled with pickup trucks

D|-2-4-2-4-2-2-4-2-| |-------7-7-|
A|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-| |-----------|
E|-----------------| |-----------|

The verses all follow this same pattern: basically, A, D, E, A

Just prior to the FIRST chorus:

e|-----------|
B|-2-3-4-6-7-|
G|-2-4-5-6-7-|
D|-----------|
A|-----------|
E|-----------|

[Chorus]

You can have alot of fun in a New York minute

G|-2-4-2-4-2-2-4-2-|
D|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|

but there's some things you can't do inside those city limits

G|-2---2---2-2---2-|
D|-2-4-2-4-2-2-4-2-|
A|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|

D|-2---2---2-2---2-|
A|-2-4-2-4-2-2-4-2-|

G|-2-| |----7b-7-5b-----|
D|-2-| |-s7---------7-7-|
A|-0-| |-s7-------------|
E|---| |----------------|

[Verse] same as above

NO prechorus section for the second chorus

[Chorus] this chorus has a double last line: "ain't no closing time..." twice as above

The end "solo" is:

e|--------------------------8------------------5----|
B|-----------------------8b---8rb--------------5----|
G|----7b-7-7-7-5b---5b------------7b-7b-7b-5---7b---|
D|-s7-------------7----7---------------------7------|
A|-s7-----------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------|

This bit is pretty improvised, so listen to it carefully for the bend releases and timing.  All interlude
bits not included here are just easy riffs in the A pentatonic scale which is:

e|---------------------5-8-|
B|-----------------5-8-----|
G|-------------5-7---------|
D|---------5-7-------------|
A|-----5-7-----------------|
E|-5-8---------------------|
