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

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.

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.
