turnaround ------------------------ additional lyrics: Me and the Devil was walking side by side Me and the Devil was walking side by side I'm goin' to beat my woman until I get satisfied She say you don't see why that I will dog her 'round She say you don't see why that I will dog her 'round It must be that ol' evil spirit so deep down in the ground You my burn my body down by the highway side You my burn my body down by the highway side So my old evil spirit can get a Greyhound bus and ride ------------------------ The above is a very easy way to play that Robert Johnson song. For a more detailed transcription I would recommend: Scott Ainslie's "Robert Johnson complete guitar transcription". It's NOT a book for beginners! I hope this tab's not too bad, and you folks can work with it. have fun markus PS: Any corrections or comments welcome! Any Johnny Winter, Rory Gallagher or Muddy Waters tab would be very welcome!
