The Spider and the Fly by the Rolling Stones
from the album, ^?Stripped^?, 1996.
Words and music by M. Jagger and K. Richards(whoever they are)
transcribed and submitted by Vance Augustine


The song is pretty simple. It^?s your basic 3 chord blues. What really
makes the song is the
little walking riff they do with the guitars. On every E7 chord play it
like this

E--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0-B--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0-G--1---------2----------4------------2----------1----------2----------4-D--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0-A--2---------4----------5------------4----------2----------4----------5-E--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0-
Hit each chord form on the beat, hold the last one for two beats Then on the A7 drop down to this
E--0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0--B--2----------3----------5----------3----------2----------3----------5--G--0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0--D--2----------4----------5----------4----------2----------4----------5--A--0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0--E--x----------x----------x----------x----------x----------x----------x-
Put it all together and it goes like this: (intro) E7 riff twice E7 riff Sittin^? thinkin^? sinkin^? drinkin^? E7 riff Wondering what I^?ll do when I^?m thru tonight A7 riff Smokin^? mopin^? maybe just hopin^? E7 riff Some little girl will pass on by B7 A7 I don^?t wanna be alone But I love my girl at home E7 riff C7 B7 I remember what she said E7 riff She said, ^?My, my, my don^?t tell lies! E7 riff Keep fidelity in your head! A7 riff My, my, my, Don^?t tell lies E7 riff When you^?ve done your show hit the bed B7 A7 Don^?t say ^?Hi^?, like a spider to a fly E7 riff C7 B7 Jump right ahead and your dead! Sit up, fed up, low down, go round Down to the bar at the place I^?m at Sittin^?, drinkin^?, superficially thinkin^? about the rinsed out blonde on my left and then I said ^?Hi^?, like a spider to a fly Remembering what my little girl said (harmonica solo) she was spiffy, shifty she looked about fifty I would have run away but I was on my own She told me later she was a machine operator she said she liked the way I held the microphone I said, ^?My, my, my, like a spider to a fly Jump right ahead in my web!^? (guitar solo and end)
