Born Under A Bad Sign – Cream from the Album Wheels of Fire

Albert King original was in D flat. This is the Cream version in G – but using a capo
allows it to be adapted easily. The opening riff is played over the chorus by both lead
and bass, except when soloing. I have left the original Albert King lyrics in, Cream 
leave out verse 2. Clapton adds a variety of riffs at the end of each line.
