                    MISSIPPI BO WEAVIL BLUES - Charley Patton
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: refewz

I tabbed this myself and am posting it because there is a serious lack of
Charley Patton's guitar work available on this site. He is a true master of
the blues! If people like I may post more of his tabs in the future.

Tuning: Open G (DGDGBD) 
*The original recording is in open B, but you're better off putting a capo
on fourth fret than trying to tune your guitar up that high. This song
should be played with a slide. The notes in parentheses are optional,
Charley throws them in a couple times.

                              Bo weavil, bo weavil, where's your native home?
