The song with the lyrics goes like this:


[Intro]

        Dm  F  Bb  F


[Verse 1]

        Dm                                      F
           I know she said it's alright
           Bb                                        F
           But you can make it up next time
           Dm                                   F
        I know she said it's not right
           Bb                                        F
           There ain't no use in Lying
        Dm                                          F
           Maybe she thinks I know something
     Bb                                                   F
           Maybe maybe she thinks it's fine
           Dm                                             F
           Maybe she knows something I don't I'm so, 
           Bb                           B5  C5
        I'm so tired, I'm so tired of trying


[Chorus]

        F                                         C5    C#5
           It seems to me that maybe     
    Dm                                           A
           It pretty much always means no
        Bb               C#5  C5                       F     Bb     C
           So don't tell me you might just let it go
           F                                          C
        And often times we're lazy
        Dm                                 A
           It seems to stand in my way
        Bb               B   C5                                  F    Bb    C
           Cause no one no not no one wants to be let down


[Verse 2]

           Dm                                        F
           I know she loves the sunrise
           Bb                                                  F
        no longer sees it with her sleeping eyes
        Dm                                                       F
           And I know that when she said she's gonna try
           Bb                                                     F
        Well it might not work because of other ties
          Dm                                                          F          
          And I wouldn't want to break 'em, nah, 
        Bb
           I wouldn't want to break em
           Dm                                      F            
           Maybe she'll help me to untie this but
           Bb                        B5     C5
           Until then well, I'm gonna have to lie to her


[Chorus]

        F                                         C5    C#5
           It seems to me that maybe     
    Dm                                           A
           It pretty much always means no
        Bb            C#5  C5                       F     Bb     C
           So don't tell me you might just let it go
           F                                          C
        And often times we're lazy
        Dm                                 A
           It seems to stand in my way
        Bb           B   C5                                  F    Bb    C
           Cause no one no not no one wants to be let down


[Chorus]

        F                                         C5    C#5
           It seems to me that maybe     
    Dm                                           A
           It pretty much always means no
        Bb            C#5  C5                       F     Bb     C
           So don't tell me you might just let it go
           F                                          C
        And often times we're lazy
        Dm                                 A
           It seems to stand in my way
        Bb            B   C5                                  F    Bb    C
           Cause no one no not no one wants to be let down

um, just one little thing if you wanna play it exactly how Johnson plays it. Bb is played barred at the 6th fret like this
E-6
B-6
G-7
D-8
A-8
E-6
they are the same note but thats how he actually plays it and i think it makes it a bit easier to play. Thanx for a great tab, peace
