Important note to be left on tab please:
This is the version recorded in 1936 which sounds approximately in 
Eb major. A variant with different words in C# major was recorded in 1937.


Original Key: Eb (approximately so retune to play with the recorded version).

[Verse 3]
Keep on truckin', baby, truckin' my blues away, yeah!
Keep on truckin', baby, truckin' my blues away.
I know a gal; she's long and tall.
When she starts truckin', make a little man squall.
Keep on truckin', mama, truckin' my blues away, I mean, truckin' my blues away, yeah!

[Verse 4]
Keep on truckin', baby, truckin' my blues away.
Keep on truckin', mama, truckin' my blues away.
She does the dance you call beedle-um-bum.
Sure miss somethin' if you don't truck some.
Keep on truckin', mama, truckin' my blues away, truckin' my blues away.

[Verse 5]
Keep on truckin', baby, truckin' my blues away.
Keep on truckin', mama, truckin' my blues away, yeah!
You don't have to hurry; you don't have to go.
Wait a little while; might wanna truck some mo'.
Keep on truckin', baby, truckin' my blues away, truckin' my blues away.

[Verse 6]
Keep on truckin', mama, truckin' my blues away, yeah!
Keep on truckin', baby, truckin' my blues away.
Make a lame man run; make a blind man see.
Sure gets good when she's truckin' with me.
Keep on truckin', baby, truckin' my blues away.

Thank you SO MUCH for this. I have looked for a tab for this forever! I was able to figure out a bit by ear, but nothing complete like this. A true blues classic from a master guitar player. A+++
