This is a Keith riff rocker.

It was cut by Keith, Bobby Keyes (sax) and Jim Price (drums)

whilst waiting for the rest of the band to turn up.

 

 

go into open G (take the low E string off) tune to GDGBD

(strings 5,4,3,2,1 respectively) put a capo on the fourth fret

so that open string (00000) will be B.

 

CHORDS:

B= 00000

B2= 02010

RIFF1 - BASED AROUND `E`

RIFF2 - BASED AROUND `E`

There are 2 riffs in the chorus.

the first riff goes like this (repeated twice)

 

------5-------5

5-5-6-5-6-6-6-5

5-5-7-5-5-5-5-5

5-5-5---7-7-7-5

5-5-5---5-5-5-5

 

THEN ITS THIS BIT (REPEATED TWICE)

 

0-0-----5---

0-0---5--5-

0-0-5-----0

0-0--------0

the verse structure is all in B (open strings) and is the normal

rock`n`roll formula but it is adapted to open tuning -

0-0-1-0-0-1

0-0-0-0-0-0

0-0-2-0-0-2

0-0-0-0-0-0

Well I never kept a dollar past sunset,

 

it always burned a hole in my pants.

 

Never made a school mama happy,

 

never blew a second chance on love.

Always took candy from strangers,

RIFF1

I need a love to keep me happy.
