If any one has a sheet music copy of this song send it to me and I'll tab it out for this person.

I don't know if it would be any help, I play by ear, but here is a version of that song I did. Old Regal lap slide, in open D, melody on the first 2 strings.

I play it in open G, keep a base line with the G string. The rest is played on the third string with the turnaround uses a couple of notes on the 4 string.

This is what I sing................

Jesus is on that mainline... tell him what you want
Jesus is on that mainline... tell him what you want
Jesus is on that mainline... tell him what you want
Ohh, call him up and tell him what you want

He will come in a hurry, just tell him what you want,
He will come in a hurry, just tell him what you want,
He will come in a hurry, just tell him what you want,
Ohh, call him up and tell him what you want

Jesus is on that mainline... tell him what you want
Jesus is on that mainline... tell him what you want
Jesus is on that mainline... tell him what you want
Ohh, call him up and tell him what you want

If you're sick and you can't get will, tell him what you want,
If you're sick and you can't get will, tell him what you want,
If you're sick and you can't get will, tell him what you want,
Ohh, call him up and tell him what you want

Jesus is on that mainline... tell him what you want
Jesus is on that mainline... tell him what you want
Jesus is on that mainline... tell him what you want
Ohh, call him up and tell him what you want

Don't have tab and don't know where to fine it, but KeniLeeBurgess has a good version of this on youtube that's simple enough to figure out just by watching. Check it out.
