The main riff can be played throughout, but you can also playit at the intro and use the chords on the verses (though I recommend the riff on the E lines).Also at the end of the riff you can repeat: -0-5- instead of: -0-3- if it sounds better. Just play around with it. -0-5- -0-3- -0-5- -0-3-
EHighway 51 runs right by my baby's door
A EHighway 51 runs right by my baby's door
BIf I don't get the girl I'm loving
EWon't go down to Highway 51 no more.
Well, I know that highway like I know my hand Yes, I know that highway like I know the back of my hand Running from up Wisconsin way down to no man's land. Well, if I should die before my time should come And if I should die before my time should come Won't you bury my body out on the Highway 51. Highway 51 runs right by my baby's door I said, Highway 51 runs right by my baby's door If I don't get the girl I'm loving Won't go down to Highway 51 no more. The end of the verse riff is improvised on this theme:
|-------------------------||-------------------------||-------------------------||-3---0-------------------||---------3p0------0------||-------------3----0------|
You could also just play the main riff once at the end of the verse if you want. E: 000000 A: 020120 B: x02100
