Subject: TAB: "Walking Blues" by Robert Johnson

------------------
Walking Blues
by Robert Johnson
------------------


Robert Johnson recorded this tune in the key of B, with his guitar tuned
up to A-tuning (E-A-E-A-C#-E) and a capo on the second fret.  This
transcription is in the key of A.

This song apparently has its roots in the rhythyms of work songs that
were used continuously from slave times up through Reconstruction and
preserved on the prison workfarms.  "Walking Blues" is an example of an
'axe song'.

But you know bout at I - got these old walkin blues.

Lord, I - feel like blowin my - woh-old lonesome home.
Got up this mornin, my little Bernice was gone, Lord.

Well, I got up this mornin - woh-all I had was gone.

Well-ah - leave this mornin if I have to - woh, ride the blind-ah.
I feel mistreated and I - don't mind dyin -
Leavin this mornin-ah - if I have to ride a blind.
Babe, I been mistreated - baby, and I don't mind dyin.

Well, some people tell me that the worried - blues aint bad.

Some - people tell me that these - old worried, old blues aint bad.
Its the worst old feelin I most - ever had.

Break in on a dollar most any - where she goes,
Ooooo-ooo - From her head down to her toes - Oh, honey -
Lord, she break in on a dollar - most anywhere she goes.
