Darktown Strutters Ball  Fats Domino
Written in 1917 and recorded by everybody down through the years, a great example of the ragtime influence.  
The song is in 2/2 time so it lends itself to playing with an alternating bass rhythm.

  /G             /

When they play those Jelly Roll blues
  /A7                 /D                 /G     /D7        /
Tomorrow night at the Darktown Strutters Ball      I'll be
