Hey Dave,

The basic progression is:
A-E-F#m-D until the last line, which is A-E-D

Here is a handy tip for figuring out chords: usually the chords in a song will ALWAYS be I IIm IIIm IV V VIm VIIo

So, for this song, the only "possible" chords (in a very simple theoretical sense) are A, Bm, C#m, D, E, F#m, G#o

So, this song is a I-IV-VIm-V progression, one of the more common progressions used today.

Hope that helps, and sorry if you knew all that already. I just learned this myself last week, and it has changed the way I think about music!

My mistake, just listened to it again - the last line of each verse is not A-E-D, but A-E-D-Dm

According to Marty Stuart.com , the music is not in print and cannot be purchased in single songsheet or songbook. If anyone has jotted down the entire chord progressions, please let me know.
