Apart from the intro, this is it (sans slight variations that you can
Figure out by ear, butnoone will notice them missing anyways. that is
If ANYONE knows this song.) Standard tuning, didnt post the intro
Either, figure it out for yourselves, lazy bastards, make me do
Everything. Anyways, enjoy, get lots of Blind Lemon Jefferson, Robert
Johnson or Leadbelly off Napster(ha), Aimster or wherever, you wont be
Disapointed if you're a fan of acoustic, especially delta blues.
