This is probably the best blues rock son ever by the legendary captain beefheart: This 
has only one main riff that consists of a small breakdown that has random sliding and 
played between the sung phrases the lyrics are at the bottom.

LISTEN TO THE SONG FIRST

Tuning:standard
main(sect 1) riff played twice played extremely fast so take your time learning if using 
but try to use bottleneck.all sliding the 'D'string should be one swift movement 
7 and 9

lyrics:
Hoy hoy
When Big Joan comes out
Her arms are too small
Her head like uh ball
She tied off her horse
'n galloped off into the moonbeams
She pulled up her blouse
'n compared her navel to the moon
I dig my life for uh while
When Big Joan sets up
Her hands are too small
She's too fat t' go out in the daylight
So she rolls around all night
I'm just sorta thread
With uh drooped body
I'll set up with yuh Big Joan
I'm too fat t' go out
In the daylight
I'll stay up all night
I won't droop if you
Won't talk about your
Hands bein' too small
You know something's happenin'
Or you wouldn't of come out like yuh did
She ain't built for goin' naked
So she can't wear any new clothes
Or go t' the beach
They laugh at her body
Cause her hands are too small
When Big Joan sets up her hands are too smal
l She's outta reach
Uh turquoise scarf 'n uh sleeve
Rolled up over uh Merc Montclair
I'll sit up with yuh Big Joan
I'm too fat to go out in the daytime
I'll stay up all night
If yuh promise not t' talk
About yer hands bein' too small
Hoy hoy is she uh boy?
