I hear some things differently too:

E--------------Esus4/A------E----D,D,A
Going down the road feeling bad........Going down the...

That addition of an Esus4 or A adds a nice rockabily to it.

Also, 2 quick strums of D before the is what Bobby often did. However in some versions he only hits the D once followed by a walk to the A by hitting a B (or is it C? I can't remember w/o a guitar in hand).

i agree with strumminsix....i've been playing this with the D thrown in at the last beat before moving from the E to the A, and it sounds really nice. but one question for ya:

i like the idea of a walk into the A. how do i do that if i'm playing barre chords on the 7th/5th frets? thanks for the advice!
