The Spider and the Fly by the Rolling Stones
from the album, ^?Stripped^?, 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^?s 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^? thinkin^? sinkin^? drinkin^?

E7   riff
Wondering what I^?ll do when I^?m thru tonight

A7   riff
Smokin^? mopin^? maybe just hopin^?

E7    riff
Some little girl will pass on by

B7                               A7
I don^?t  wanna be alone     But I love my girl at home

E7   riff                               C7 B7
I remember what she said


E7   riff
She said, ^?My, my, my   don^?t tell lies!

E7   riff
Keep fidelity in your head!

A7   riff
My,  my,  my,  Don^?t tell lies

E7  riff
When you^?ve done your show hit the bed

B7                                 A7
Don^?t say  ^?Hi^?,   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^?m at
Sittin^?, drinkin^?,  superficially thinkin^?
about the rinsed out blonde on my left
and then I said ^?Hi^?, 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, ^?My, my, my,  like a spider to a fly
Jump right ahead in my web!^?

(guitar solo and end)
