"The Problem" by J.J. Cale 
From the album "To Tulsa and Back"

Performance notes: True to the laid back "Tulsa Sound" 
he helped to create, Cale plays slightly behind the beat.
This can be accomplished by strumming down and up normally,
but accenting the upstroke only. All solos are played 
over the intro/verse chords, except for the last solo
where it passes through the Eb F Bb Ab Eb progression
toward the end of it.

Intro 2x: Bb  Ab  Eb  Bb  Bb  Ab  Bb 

Bb                 Ab           Eb              Bb
Have you heard the news, that's going 'round here
Bb          Ab                 Bb
The man in charge has got to go

Bb               Ab         Eb       Bb
Cause he dances 'round, the problem, boy
Bb                     Ab                     Bb
and the problem is the man in charge, you know

Bb                  Ab          Eb           Bb
Now the young knows what, I'm a talkin' 'bout
Bb                Ab            Bb
it's a con in the old man's game
Bb          Ab              Eb               Bb
The man in charge he don't, know what he's doin'
Bb                  Ab              Bb
He don't know, the world has changed

    Eb             F   Bb Ab  Eb
The power seems to be, so far up
Bb              Ab                   Bb
The man on the street ain't got a clue

Bb           Ab     Eb              Bb
The high top cats, runnin' your life
Bb                       Ab        Bb
Thinks the problem is uh, me and you

(piano solo)

Bb        Ab    Eb             Bb
Born in a time, that has gone by
Bb               Ab              Bb
The old tell the young what to do
Bb                 Ab   Eb                 Bb
Have you heard the news, that's going 'round 
Bb                 Ab                  Bb
The problem is the man in charge of you 
Bb                 Ab                  Bb
The problem is the man in charge of you

(guitar solo)

    Eb             F   Bb Ab  Eb
The power seems to be, so far up
Bb             Ab                     Bb
The man on the street ain't got a clue

Bb           Ab     Eb              Bb
The high top cats, runnin' your life
Bb                   Ab          Bb
Thinks the problem is, me and you

(guitar solo II)....Eb  F  Bb  Ab  Eb

thanks for the tab. is this supposed to be accompanied by a bass? because standard tuning doesn't seem to get low enough for this song. I have much better success in drop D or open D with a capo on the first fret.
