   well there you go kiddies!! that's the whole song tabbed out! took a lil' 
   bit to do, but i got it done. this is a really killer song to begin with, 
   and Machine Head's version is so sweet. it just throws down hard!! the 
   song is arranged from beginning till end, everything is there except the 
   little blues licks that go with the chorus. have fun and keep bangin your 
   head!!
