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

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

Guitar verse

|-4---4--4----2---2--2----4---4--4----4--2-2-3-|
|-4---4--4----2---2--2----4---4--4----4--2-2-3-|
|-5---5--5----3---3--3----5---5--5----5--3-3-4-|

|-4---4--4----2---2--2----4---4--4----4--2-2-3-|

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

Bass 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.
