                                                              D

This has got to be the most epic name for a song ever.

This is vastly over complicated, and I think the extra details are wrong. Its just a straight Bo Diddley beat in G. I'm not sure of the bridge but here's the simplified and I think more correct version:

Intro: Bo Diddley beat in G (verse pattern)

G C
Spotcheck Billy got down on his hands and knees, and he said
G D G
"Hey, mama, hey, let me check your oil, all right?" and she said,
D G
"No, no, honey, not tonight. Come back Monday, come back Tuesday,
D G
and then I might."

G D7 G
I said Juanita, my sweet Juanita, what are you up to?
G D7 G

C

D

D7
Throw me a dime. Cause there's a

CHORUS:
G D G D
Fat man in the bathtub with the blues. I hear you moan, I hear you moan
G
I hear you moan.

Actually wrybread all of those chord changes are correct. If you don't believe me watch them play it on youtube. There is a video from "Old Grey Whistle Test" from about 75' or so. This transcription is accurate.Your's works just fine for a campfire version I guess. My only addition is that both guitars are tuned to open A tuning (EAEAC#E low to high) Lowell George has his capoed at the third fret,Paul Barre plays rhythm uncapoed. Watch the video if you need to see it for yourself.
