                   If I Had Possesion Over Judgment Day
                           By: Robert Johnson
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: sammc
Email: sammc@look.ca

Tuning: Open G Tuning (D G D G B D)
Capo: 2
Slide: Slide Required

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen: Please note the following tab is very close to the artist's
work. I have transcribed the piece completely and it is to be read with the capo on the
second fret in Open G Tuning (D G D G B D) and with a slide.

(Intro:)
