Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
(you'll need tab or a good ear to do the finger picking - this chord sheet is just a 
memory jogger for when you know the song....)

Intro:   C  C7-F-Fm-G

      C                      C                     C     C7
From four until late I was wringing my hands and crying
      F                      Ab                    C     A7
From four until late I was wringing my hands and crying
     D7                         G7               C-C7-F-Fm-G7
I believe to my soul that your daddy's Gulfport bound

      C                        C              C    C7
From Memphis to Norfolk is a thirty six hour ride
      F                        Ab             C    A7
From Memphis to Norfolk is a thirty six hour ride
          D7                        G7           C-C7-F-Fm-G7
A man is like a prisoner, and he's never satisfied

            C                          C                          C    C7
A woman is like a dresser, some man always ramblin through its drawers
            F                          Ab                         C    A7
A woman is like a dresser, some man always ramblin through its drawers
             D7                 G7        C-C7-F-Fm-G7
It cause so many men to wear an apron overall

      C                              C                   C   C7
From four until late, she-get-with-a no-good bunch and clown
      F                              Ab                  C   A7
From four until late, she-get-with-a no-good bunch and clown
         D7                          G7                    C-C7-F-Fm-G7
Now she won't do nothing but tear a good man's reputation down

        C                        C             C   C7
When I leave this town, I'm 'on bid you fare-well
        F                        Ab            C   A7
When I leave this town, I'm 'on bid you fare-well
            D7                           G7                 C-C7-F-Fm-G7
And when I return again, you'll have a great long story to tell

I would put an F chord in the middle of the first line in each verse (on wrInging) so instead of C, C, C, C7 it would be like C, F, C, C7. Other than that, nice TAB! Ill rate 5 STARS if you make the correction!!

ihavetofindone, if I can convince you it's only C, can I have 5 stars? :)

Here's the way I play it (first two lines).

C G#7 G7 A C B Bb C C7 F AbM7 C A7
e-0--3--7---6--4--2-3-3-2-1-0--0--1--3-0------------0--3-2-1-0-3---------
B-1--5----------------5-4-3-1--1--1--1---0-3-0---0--1--5-4-3-2-2---------
G-0--5--7---6--5------5-4-3-0--3--2--1---------0----0--5-4-3-2-2---------
D-2--5----------------------2--2--3--1--------------2--------2-2---------
A-3-------------------------3--3--3-----------------3--------0-0---------
E---------------------------------1--------------------------------------

In the lead sheet above, I left out the small changes. In the TAB above, I just have the chords (not the timing or strumming). I tried playing an F there and I'll admit it sounds just fine and it's a reasonable alternative to playing those C snippets.

Actually, playing just C is not totally wrong to me, as Robert Johnson himself has a very minimalistic style that features rhythm, 'leads' and singing at the same time, forcing him to imply some brief and momentary changes sometimes.

Anyway, I really believe a momentary F chord belongs to the harmonic structure of the verses. If you want to hear what I mean you can listen to Clapton's version of the song (Dallas, TX 2004). Since he shares rhythm and leads with another guitarist, you can hear the changes and harmonic structure more clearly.
