The Firefly's Song  Alan Jackson

I haven't found any tabs for this song, so I figured what I could, and here it is.
Listen to the recording to get the beat. My tab only shows note order and not tempo.
The first intro bit:
 
 |2-------0-----|
 |-3---2--------|
 |--2----2---2-2|
 |--------------|
 |-----0---0--0-|
 |--------------|

then:
 
 |2-----0------------2-----0-----------------------|
 |-3--2------3---2--3-3--2------3---2-2---0--------|
 |--2------4-----2-2---2------4-----2-2-1---1---2--|
 |-------2-----2------------2-----2-----------2----|
 |-------------------------------------------------|
 |-------------------------------------------------|

Then a D chord with a hammer-on on the G string, and a hard plucked high E.
He plays the intro twice, and the goes to the verse with this:
p=pull-off
 
 |-----1p0-------|
 |---------------|
 |-4p2-----------|
 |----------3----|
 |---------------|
 |---------------|

Then an A chord, and then an E chord, with the G string hammered on, and the E string
hard again.
Its hard to hear the picking pattern for the rest of the song. Just listen to it and
up something that sounds close.
It was also pretty hard to hear the chords for the chorus. Let me know if you think they
wrong.
F#m:244222
G#m:466444
Bm:x24432
Dmaj:x4333x
Verse:
I[A] used to run in a young man's boots
With a [E]young man's heart
And a young man's roots
F#m Bm(with a hammer-on on b string)
But now I stand where a young man stood before
I don't run like I u[A]sed to
This old m[E]an don't run no m[A]ore
Chorus:
[F#m]Hey h[E]idee ho
[G#m]I used to go [F#m]where the devil[E] wouldn't go
Where the [D]river run still
And the [A]water don't flow
[Dmaj]Heaven couldn't s[F#m]top me then
Hey [E]Hidee hi
[G#m]Good lord willin
[F#m]And the creek don't r[E]ise
And [D]life goes by
Like the [A]fireflies
Where the [E]devil sits with a [A]grin
Well those are all the peices. Listen to the song to see how they all fit together.
Let me know if you enjoyed this tab (its my first one) or if you think I made an error
left out something.
Enjoy!
