Lick #2: This one is played behind most of the verses, during the 'G' chord. The tab below assumes you're playing an open G (300023); just work this pattern into your finger-picking, if any. It also sounds nice when moved down an octave, but you need to go to dropped-D tuning.

G Bb C D And here am I thinking to myself, just a-wondering what it pays to do. Solo 1 (bass/flute) Alternate D & C, then end on Asus2 Verse 3: G I think I enjoyed all my problems, where I did not get nothing for free. F C G F C G Oh, I'm going back to the family, doing nothing is bothering me. Verse 4: G I'll get a train back to the city. The soft life is getting me down. F C G F C G There's more fun away from the family, get some action when I roll into town. Repeat intro lick, then: Am C D C Everything I do is wrong. What the hell was I thinking? D C Phone keeps ringing all day long, I got no time for thinking. G Bb C D And every day has the same old way, they're giving me too much to do.
