This is taken from the soundtrack of Dumb and Dumber. There are a few places
where I can't make head nor tail of the words - speak English, woman! Hence, I 
would appreciate it greatly if anybody could fill in the gaps.
Enjoy!

(x = Left-hand-muted percussive note) This is played four times as an intro (drums come in the second time, and harmonica and Hammond come in the third time). Although the chords for the links between the verses are different, I think the riff is played over these as well. It's kind of hard to tell what the guitar is doing after the intro, since it disappears in the mix. .............
