2. Song structure and lyrics:

The structure of the song is very simple. It has a so-called AAA-form,
which simply consists of three repeated verses. So there's no chorus
and no bridge. The necessary contrast comes from the "normal" guitar
and the slide-guitar. They both play backings and solo's.

Intro: |F5       |F5       | 

Verse 1:
I [F5]felt in need of some lovin'
So I [C5]sat down on a wall
I tried to find a reason for living
But I [F5]couldn't find a reason at all
So I [Bb5]owned up to my maker
And I [F5]started to say a prayer
I [C5]waited for an answer
But there [F5]wasn't anybody there.

Short slide solo:
|C5     |C5     |Bb5    |F5     |

Verse 2:
I [F5]thought there should have been someone
But I [C5]wasn't quite sure who
It finished me to find there was no one
That I could [F5]take my troubles to
So I [Bb5]knelt down by my bedside
And I [F5]started to say a prayer
It was [C5]when I asked for nothing
I could [F5]feel that there was somebody there.

Middle slide solo:
|C5     |C5     |F5     |F5     |C5     |C5     |Bb5    |F5     |

"Plain" solo:
|F5     |F5     |C5     |C5     |C5     |C5     |F5     |F5     |
|Bb5    |Bb5    |F5     |F5     |C5     |C5     |Bb5    |F5     | 
Strum the chord once in the last bar, hold it and start to boogie again:

|F5     |F5     |F5     |F5     |F5     |F5     |F5     |F5     |

Verse 3:
I'm [F5]looking still but it's easy
'Cos I [C5]know which way to go
It doesn't matter how long it takes me
'cos there's [F5]someone there to help me who knows
All the [Bb5]things that I am after
All the [F5]lovin' that I want to share
it's [C5]so hard but I don't mind
'cos there [F5]really is somebody there.

Repeat verse 1

Slide solo and the ending:
|C5     |C5     |F5     |F5     |C5     |C5     |Bb5    |

With half time feel (time of two beats is now one beat):
|F          E Eb|Bb5            |C5             |
|F  F7  Bb  Bbm |F   F#7 F7     |
