The Spider and the Fly by the Rolling Stones

from the album, ^ÓStripped^Ô, 1996.

Words and music by M. Jagger and K. Richards(whoever they are)

transcribed and submitted by Vance Augustine

 

 

The song is pretty simple. It^Òs your basic 3 chord blues. What really

makes the song is the

little walking riff they do with the guitars. On every E7 chord play it

like this

 

E--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0-

B--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0-

G--1---------2----------4------------2----------1----------2----------4-

D--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0-

A--2---------4----------5------------4----------2----------4----------5-

E--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0-

 

Hit each chord form on the beat, hold the last one for two beats

 

Then on the A7 drop down to this

 

E--0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0--

B--2----------3----------5----------3----------2----------3----------5--

G--0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0--

D--2----------4----------5----------4----------2----------4----------5--

A--0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0--

E--x----------x----------x----------x----------x----------x----------x-

 

Put it all together and it goes like this:

 

 

 

(intro) E7 riff twice

 

E7 riff

Sittin^Ò thinkin^Ò sinkin^Ò drinkin^Ò

 

E7 riff

Wondering what I^Òll do when I^Òm thru tonight

 

A7 riff

Smokin^Ò mopin^Ò maybe just hopin^Ò

 

E7 riff

Some little girl will pass on by

 

B7 A7

I don^Òt wanna be alone But I love my girl at home

 

E7 riff C7 B7

I remember what she said

 

 

E7 riff

She said, ^ÓMy, my, my don^Òt tell lies!

 

E7 riff

Keep fidelity in your head!

 

A7 riff

My, my, my, Don^Òt tell lies

 

E7 riff

When you^Òve done your show hit the bed

 

B7 A7

Don^Òt say ^ÓHi^Ô, like a spider to a fly

 

E7 riff C7 B7

Jump right ahead and your dead!

 

Sit up, fed up, low down, go round

Down to the bar at the place I^Òm at

Sittin^Ò, drinkin^Ò, superficially thinkin^Ò

about the rinsed out blonde on my left

and then I said ^ÓHi^Ò, like a spider to a fly

Remembering what my little girl said

 

(harmonica solo)

 

she was spiffy, shifty

she looked about fifty

I would have run away but I was on my own

She told me later she was a machine operator

she said she liked the way I held the microphone

I said, ^ÓMy, my, my, like a spider to a fly

Jump right ahead in my web!^Ô

 

(guitar solo and end)
