[Original note on solo: Unfortunately, Pete plays the solo on either a
guitar tuned to Eb, or the E string tuned down to Eb (or maybe ALL 
the guitars tuned down), so if you don't have two guitars you can 
either 1) play all chords up a 1/2 step or 2) don't pluck the low E 
string on the solo and play it in Eb.]
[Second note: stage versions played in standard tuning same as below 
and begin at bar 5; solo played as below without low Eb]

Eb     xx134x  and xx88 11 x
Ebsus4 xx1144  and xx889x
Fsus4  1x3311  and xxx566
F      1x3211  and xxx565

[INTRO; 3 guitars; 2 strum Eb & Ebsus4, one plays arpeggios]

    Gm
You talk about your woman.  I wish you could see mine.
          Fsus4                  F                       Gm
Yeah, you talk about your woman.    I wish you could see mine.
      F                                   C                D
Every time she starts to lovin' she brings eyesight to the blind.

You know her daddy gave her magic, I can tell by the way she walks.
Her daddy gave her magic, I can tell by the way she walks.
Every time she starts to shakin', the dumb begin to talk.

Eric Clapton got a lot of sick solos in this track.

Pete townshend got eric to the studio to get Eric away from all of the Heroin he was using in the 80's. This is one of the last recordings where eric used a les paul.

you can tell from the vocals that eric just went cold turkey
