I was surprised that nobody had done the guitar for this song so I figured I'd do it.

Guitar tuning: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb
Bass tuning: Eb Ab Db Gb
^=bend

While the bass is playing that in the intro the guitar does this.

Repeat what the bass and guitar do during the verse and then go to the chorus.

|-----4-5~-------4-5-4-------4-5~-------4-5-4-|

And then go back to the verse

Lyrics

Verse:
Mother said come home
Father said come home
Sister said come home
So my friend said come home
And I said

Chorus:
Let me be I'm allright
Can't you see I'm just fine
Little skinny okay
I'm asleep anyway

Verse:
Then I heard the voice
Said son you have a choice
I then slapped my face

Chorus:
Let me be I'm okay
I'm awake anyway
It's too bright over here
I can shift and I'll steer
Little skinny okay
I'm asleep anyway



To jam this song the right way you gotta groove with it.
It's a great swing blues song so have fun with it.
