Going Down
by Freddie King

tabbed by: Poekicker
email: poekicker@gmail

Tuning: Standard

The song is a 12 bar blues in D.  The pattern is essentially:
I   I   I   I
IV  IV  I   I
V   V   I   I

with a small twist. Any bar that comes before a I (the D chord) is descending 4 chord 
pattern of D C G F.  In this case, it is the 2nd bar, the 6th bard and the 10th bar.  The 
intro is just the 1st 8 bars.

D   D C G F   D   D
G   D C G F   D   D

D                          D    C    G    F    D     D
I'm Going down,  I'm goin' down down down down down

G                          D    C    G    F    D     D
I'm Going down,  I'm goin' down down down down down

A                                       D    C    G  F   D      D
I got my big feet in the window, and my head down on the ground

(Same chord progression)
Let me down, and close that box car door
Yes, let me down, and close that box car door
Well, I'm goin' back to Chattanooga, and sleep on sister Irene's door


Yes, I'm going down, I'm going down down, down, down
I'm going down,  I'm goin' down down down down down
Yes, I got my feet in the window, I got my head on the ground
