This tab for the studio version of Going Up the Country. Some have posted the lyrics and 
for the live Woodstock version.
The song is play in Bb with a Capo on the 8th fret. I saw a video which showed Alan 
strumming the chords with his thumb instead of a pick.

Going Up the Country            Canned Heat

I'm [D] goin up the country Baby don't you want to go?
I'm goin [G] up the country Baby don't you want to [D] go?
I'm goin' [A] to someplace where I've never been be-[D] fore

[D] Well I'm goin' where the water tastes like wine
Well I'm [G] goin' where the water tastes like [D] wine
You can [A] jump in the water and stay drunk all the [D] time

Solo: (Same chords as verse)

[D] I'm gonna leave the city, got to get away
I'm gonna [G] leave the city, got to get [D] away
All this [A] fussin and fightin man you know I sure can't [D] stay


Bridge
[D] Now baby packin up the truck
You know we've got to leave today
Just exactly where were goin I cannot say but
[G] We might even leave the US-[D] A
Well it¡¯s a [A] brand new game that I don't wanna [D] play

Solo: (Same chords as verse)

No use of you [G] running, or screaming and [D] crying
Cause you've got a [A] home man
Long as I've got [D] mine

Solo: [G] -[D] -[A]- [D] (Pause) Db ¨M D

Solo: (Same chords as verse)

Nice tab, just out of curiosity, why is this number one?

Hammer on on the third string on the fourth fret with the pinky every now and then and it sounds great. And on the G, mute the second string, and hammer on the third string every now and then as well. Sounds great! I also think it sounds better with an A7 instead of an A.

Great tab though! :)

Of course I mean hammer on on the fourth string, second fret, and mute the fifth string. Sorry.
