On the intro and first chorus we'll play a 16 bar section.

The chords used are all basic country chord progression relationships with the I IV V, and with double use of the V of V.

We'll use boom chuck and bass walk up to the A chord where the guitar enters.

Notice how the guitar immediately settles into a supportive strumming groove. Also, how the structure starts with a simple I IV I for the first line, then uses a series of V chords to extend the melody on the second line. The last two lines stay within the key and comes home to the tonic with a stop.
