[Original note on solo: Unfortunately, Pete plays the solo on either a

guitar tuned to Eb, or the E string tuned down to Eb (or maybe ALL

the guitars tuned down), so if you don't have two guitars you can

either 1) play all chords up a 1/2 step or 2) don't pluck the low E

string on the solo and play it in Eb.]

[Second note: stage versions played in standard tuning same as below

and begin at bar 5; solo played as below without low Eb]

 

Eb xx134x and xx88 11 x

Ebsus4 xx1144 and xx889x

Fsus4 1x3311 and xxx566

F 1x3211 and xxx565

 

[INTRO; 3 guitars; 2 strum Eb & Ebsus4, one plays arpeggios]

Gm

You talk about your woman. I wish you could see mine.

Fsus4 F Gm

Yeah, you talk about your woman. I wish you could see mine.

F C D

Every time she starts to lovin' she brings eyesight to the blind.

 

You know her daddy gave her magic, I can tell by the way she walks.

Her daddy gave her magic, I can tell by the way she walks.

Every time she starts to shakin', the dumb begin to talk.
