Version 1:
A        C        G         F     A    D A                    
There's a bar hall queen in Charlotte town (bite the bullet)            
A            C                 F        G     A    D A              
I'd sure like to meet her when the sun goes down (bite the bullet)      
A         C       G        F      A    D A                            
I swear her hair is midnight black (bite the bullet)                    
A       C         F     G     A    D A                              
And I can't wait till I get back (bite the bullet)                      

D   A    E                                                              
Carolina queen                                                          
D       A       F                                              
She's a walking love machine                                            
A       E        D                                                  
I'd like to make her scream                                             
A    D A                                                         
When I bite the bullet.                                                 

(etc.)                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

e---------                                                              
B---------                                                              
G---------  A     D    A  (repeat)                                      
D---------                                                              
A------0h2  / /  / /  /   (it's not straight quarter-notes, but hard to 
E--0h2----                 do in ASCII - try to get the rhythm right.)  

I play this in the intro and every time for "bite the bullet".          
and I start each verse with the hammer-ons.

Born and raised at the top of the south.  (Bite the Bullet)         
You know she knows what it's all about.  (Bite the Bullet)          
Good old boys are coming from miles around. (Bite the Bullet)       
Wanna watch that bullet lay them down.  (Bite the Bullet)

There's a bar hall queen down in Charlotte town                     
I'd sure like to see her when the sun goes down                     
Good old boys are coming from miles around                          
Wanna watch that bullet lay 'em down
