 Thewhite549 nailed this tab in my opinion. So I copied his stuff for the album version
the song, but if you've seen the Raconteurs live (especially this year, 2008) You'd know
song isnt complete without the solo. So I decided to make a solo for it, most of it is 
ear, some of it is improvised, and I got help from a few videos of the solo. Enjoy


THANKS TO THEWHITE549:

As long as you're inside my blue veins
Your blue veins

                               Dm
Yeah and the feeling that you gave me

No matter what I do or where I go
                 Am
It always will remain

       Dm
And those who would enslave me to get to me must get past you and will have no luck
                               Am
Cause you'll protect me from all pain
 C                     B7
The most beautiful, yeah the most beautiful thing cause anything else can't compare
                                               Amin
Must be the blood that's running through your blue vein

Your blue veins

 Am
Your blue veins

                       Dm
And I know you won't deceive me
                                       Am
Like the rest and there's nothing you need to explain
                                 Dm
You always were the first one to believe me

When I said to you girl
                   Am
I think it's gonna rain

But I could be wrong

  C
Yeah but all of these things

All these things
                  B7
They're all truly nice but ain't nothing
                                                               Amin
Ain't nothing compared to the love that's running through your little blue veins

Your blue veins


End on Amin

You should also put a link to which version of the solo this is. Since he plays it differently every single time, because it is improvised. It's a great tab, but a Guitar Pro or Power Tab version would be greatly appreciated. :) Also, if it isn't too much of a pain, or too much to ask, could you some how tab this rendition of the solo?

I've been trying to figure it out for months...
