For the right "Quo-feel" play the chords above the dots (.) very
short. The other (shorter) chord may sound for its full value (and
that's not too long). And it might be (as I said above) that Rick
was using the more basic triads (without third) but that's less 
important for the sound then you being able to play the rhythm
staccato. Just listen to Rick's rhythm to know what I mean.

When you're ready for it, just add the words! Play the progression
once for each verse and twice for the solo's.



Intro: |G7      |G7      |G7       |G7      |


Well I spent my money on the spinning wheel last night (2x)
I went on red twenty-seven, it didn't do me right

Well I went in smilin' but I came out feeling down (2x)
Well now that I'm a poor man, I got no friends around

Solo (guitar)

I went high on that lonesome, high on that lonesome hill (2x)
I need a whole lot of money so I can pay my bills

Well the spinning wheel blues I need to pack-ah-my bags and go (2x)
I have to leave my hotel, 'cause they don't want me no more

Solo (Harp)
