TBC Original? Yes
Written By: Chris and Rich Robinson
Recording Session: Lions
Record: Lions
Live Debut: 02/03/2001
Shows: 59 times played live
Related Song: Old Man Of The Midnight Sea
Notes: This song evolved from the Young Man Old Man Jam, which was played only during
shows. The funky main riff became the foundation for the unreleased "Old Man In The
Sea", which was recorded in late 1997, but dropped from consideration for By Your Side 
as a b-side. Four years later the main riff was resurrected to serve as the foundation of this
which gets the extended treatment when played live.

The above information was taken from

Tuning: CFCFAC (Open F- open G a full step down)

This song was a little bit tougher to figure out because on both the studio and live
Rich's guitar is drenched with a Hughes and Kettner Rotosphere.  What little video exists

ear on this one.

As with most Black Crowes songs, the verse riff features a lot of little variations that not going to sit here and tab out. Have fun with it.
