      I loved this song from the moment I heard it, although 
      Mick's guitar sounds a little square at the verse, as 
      if he was playing 3/4 time. But it is a great song with 
      a cool brass arrangement by David Palmer, a very smart 
      chord sequence, a fine bridge and interlude) and a very 
      good guitar coda no doubt played with Mick's Eko twelve 
      string guitar, strung as a nine string guitar (double 
      stringing for the high register e, B and G and single 
      stringing for low D, A and E).
     
 

   

  I feel so sad now that she's gone.
  I've been loving that woman too long.
  There's no place to go,
  Because my friends have all moved.
  Got nothing to sit in the sun.
  Got tired of crying.
  Guess I'll move on alone.

  My bed is so empty and my heart has grown cold.
  Guess I'll just die before I grow old.
  The place is untidy,
  That's cause I ain't done my dirt.
  I just grown tired of thinking.
  Got tired of crying.
  Guess I'll move on alone. 





      Tune Low E string to D and G string to G#

9/8 time has three beats per measure, nine eighth notes. (three per beat). You can give the notes that jazzy feel by making the first note in each beat sound as if it had the length of two leaving the second note of the beat as it is, in a long-short fashion, as follows:
----- -- ----- -- ----- -- 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 |--------- --------- ---------|--------- --------- ---------| |-----------------------------|-----------------------------| |-----------------------------|-----------------------------| |-----------------------------|-----------------------------| |-----------------------------|-----------------------------| |-----------------------------|-----------------------------| 1 2 3
3/4 time has also three beats per measure, six eighth notes, two per beat with the same duration each.
