Song  : Crosstown Traffic
Artist: Jimi Hendrix

The only other tabs I could find for this song were only semi accurate. So here goes.

Intro:

  C7                       F7
|------------------------|------------------------|
|-----------11-----------|------------------------|
|-----10h12----10h8----8-|-10---8-----------------| x3
|-------------------10---|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|

  A#
|------------------------|--------------------------|
|------------------------|--------------------------|
|------------------------|-8-8--8-8--8-8--8-8--8-8\-|
|------------------------|--------------------------|
|------------------------|--------------------------|
|------------------------|--------------------------|

C7
You jump in front of my car when you
F7
You know all the time that
C7
Ninety miles an hour, girl, is the
F7
speed I drive
Bb7
You tell me it's alright,
Eb7
you don't mind a little pain
Ab7
You say you just want me to
G7
take you for a ride

Before the chorus, there's this fill:

 (C7)
|-----------------------------------|
|-11-11--11-11--11-11--11-11--11b13-|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|

You're just like

  (Crosstown traffic)
                  So hard to   get through to you
  C7                           F7
|----------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|----------------------------|----------------------11--------------|
|----------------------------|----------------10h12----10-8----10-8-|
|----------------------------|------------------------------10------|
|----------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|----------------------------|--------------------------------------|

  (Crosstown traffic)
             I don't need to   run over you
  C7                           F7
|----------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|----------------------------|-----------------11-------11-------11-|
|----------------------------|-----------10h12----10h12----10h12----|
|----------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|----------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|----------------------------|--------------------------------------|

  (Crosstown traffic)
               All you do is   slow me down
  C7                           F7
|----------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|----------------------------|----------------------11--------------|
|-10h12\---------------------|----------------10h12----10-8----10-8-|
|----------------------------|------------------------------10------|
|----------------------------|--------------------------------------|
|----------------------------|--------------------------------------|

And I'm tryin' to get on the other side of   town
|------------------------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|-8-8--8-8--8-8--8-8--8\-|
|------------------------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------------------------|------------------------|

All of the above is the same for the second verse/chorus, except the fill for the end of 
second chorus goes:

And I got better things on the other side of   town
|--------------------------------------------|----------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|-11-11----------------|
|--------------------------------------------|----------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|----------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|----------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|----------------------|

  G
|-----------------------|-------------------|
|---8--8--8-----8-------|---3----3----------|
|---10-10-10b12-12r10---|---5b7--5b7--3-----|
|---------------------8-|---------------5-3-|
|-----------------------|-------------------|
|-----------------------|-------------------|

  G                       Bb7
|-----------------------|----------------------------|
|---8-----8-------8-----|-8-----8--8-----3---3-3-----|
|---10b12-10b12---12r10-|-10b12-12-12r10-5b7-7-7-3---|
|-----------------------|--------------------------3-|
|-----------------------|----------------------------|
|-----------------------|----------------------------|

Then there's a section like the intro

  C7                       F7
|------------------------|------------------------|
|-----------11-----------|------------------------|
|-----10h12----10h8------|-10---8-----------------|
|-------------------10---|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|

  A#
|------------------------|------------------------|
|-11-11--11-11-----------|------------------------|
|---------------8-8--8-8-|-------------------8-8\-|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|

  C7                       F7
|------------------------|------------------------|
|-----------11-----------|-8-----8----------------|
|-----10h12----10h8------|-10b12r10---------------|
|-------------------10---|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|

  A#
|------------------------------|
|-11-11--11-11--11b13--13-13---|
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|
|------------------------------|

  C7                               F7
|-8-----8------------------------|------------------------|
|-11b13-11b13-------11-----------|-8-----8----------------|
|-------------10h12----10h8------|-10b12r10---------------|
|---------------------------10---|------------------------|
|--------------------------------|------------------------|
|--------------------------------|------------------------|

  A#
|-----------------------------------|---------------------------|
|-8-----8---8--8---8--8---8--8---8--|-8---------11--------------|
|-10b12-12--12-12--12-12--12-12--12-|-10b12--12----10-8----10-8-|
|-----------------------------------|-------------------10------|
|-----------------------------------|---------------------------|
|-----------------------------------|---------------------------|

And then the fade (which is basically the section above). Just improvise with the C 
minor scale.

i'm not sure, but I think that riff is:

|---------------------------|
|--------11-----------------|
|--10h12----12h10----10-----|
|-----------------12----12--|
|---------------------------|
|---------------------------|

I know, it's a small thing, but I think it's correct
the rest of the tab sounds pretty close
