Pride and Joy
                      by SRV off Texas Flood

You had better clean the rust off your fingers to learn this tune inside
and out.  And remember Stevie always tuned down a half step. He also
played on 11 and 12 gauge strings.

  I find it easiest to play these lower bass notes by forming the chord and
  then using your pinky to finger the notes, I am not sure exactly how SRV
  did it!

I would suggest to any serious guitar player interested in SRV to learn these
solos if you want to really get into SRV's style.
Here is the short out solo.

Well hopefully I didn't waste the two hours it took to type this and that
someone will use this to its full potential and  But I am sure alot of 
you will.


I promised to post a final version. Here is what I consider correct;
however, a few mails have suggested that 3rd verse 1st line is about
his wife, and could therefore be:
        "Yeah I love my Lenny, she's long and lean".
Well, you can decide for youself. Thank you to all who answered.
A tab version (including only 1st verse) not made by me can be found
on ftp.nevada.edu OR MIRRORS! The mirrors are in fact faster (for me,
anyway). I have put up a few links on my www-blues page, including the
nevada mirrors: http://www.iesd.auc.dk/~lohmann/blues.html

Have fun now, and here it goes: (sing along, all)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
        "Pride and Joy"    Stevie Ray Vaughan

        [Intro]
       
        Well you've heard about love givin' sight to the blind
        My baby's lovin' cause the sun to shine
        she's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy
        she's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy

        Yeah I love my baby, my heart and soul
        love like ours won't never grow old
        she's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy
        she's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy

        Yeah I love my baby to belong and lean
        you mess with her, you'll see a man gettin' mean
        she's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy
        she's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy
 
        [Guitar solo 1]

        Well I love my baby like the finest wine
        Stick with her until the end of time
        she's my sweet little thing, she's my pride amd joy
        she's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy

        Yeah I love my baby, my heart and soul
        love like ours will never grow old
        she's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy
        she's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy

        [Guitar solo 2]

        [Outro]

If I learned anything from the Abysslord, it's that the books are never 100% correct.
