Hi My name is Trond Vidar, and this is the classical Slow Blues in 'C'
from Alvin Lee and Ten years After! Enjoy!

Solo over above pattern
Timing is hard to tab because of all triplets and bends.
I think the bends are at most up one fret.
I've broken it up into (I hope) recognisable riffs with breaks where
Alvin holds the notes.

 The fast bit just before the verse starts (help!)
 (I think it's a rapid hammer/pull off from C to C, but there
 is no way I can play it fast enough to tell if this is right)

  that's why....    I'm gonna ...ride

Verse 1
Yes I get the blues                and it hurts me deep inside
Yes I get the blues                and it hurts me deep inside
That's why I'm gonna pack my bags  I'm gonna leave this town and ride

Verse 2
Last night I lay sleeping   I tell you babe I was sleeping by myself
Last night I lay sleeping   I tell you babe I was sleeping by myself
The one I really love with  is on the other side of town sleeping
                            with somebody else.

Verse 3
I love my baby                    Yeah, God only knows I do
I love my baby                    I love my baby
C7
gonna tell the world I know I do
G7                                   F9
that's why I'm gonna leave my woman, yeah, and tell the world I know
                                     it's true.
