[Chords]

[verse 1]
F#m                  F#m7
Monday looked like a downer
F#m                 F#m7
Tuesday looked like rain
       E
A bad altitude
      B7               F#m
And I knew I needed a change


[Verse 2]

F#m              F#m7
Head out on the highway
F#m               F#m7
Cruising way down south
    E
I knew a little place
         B7                      F#m
Where we might could work it all out

[Chorus 1]
D5       E                   F#m
I'm so tired of fighting with myself
        B5                       E      F#m
Gonna spend a little time at the Tunica Motel


[Verse 3]

F#m               F#m7  
Just outside of Memphis,
F#m     F#m7
Highway 61
E                   B7
Sleepy little town down by the
             F#m
Mississippi River

[Verse 4]
F#m                     F#m7
I'm gonna lay out on a houseboat
F#m                 F#m7
Until my hide turns brown
E
Ain't gonna move 'till the
B7               F#m
Evening sun goes down

[Chorus 2]
         D5          E                         F#m
Fried chicken to go and they got live bait for sale
 B5                      E      F#m
Anything you need at the Tunica Motel

[Verse 5]
F#m                F#m7
I find myself at midnight
F#m                      F#m7
Moving to the back porch blues
    E             B7     
The guitar cries, telling me
            F#m   
About the hard times

[verse 6]
F#m                      F#m7
Something moves in the shadows
F#m                F#m7
Giving me a little chill
             E
I thought I saw Robert Johnson
B7                     F#m
Walking out across the field

[chorus 3]
             D5             E                      F#m
There ain't hardly anybody left who even knows the tale
B5                     E      F#m
Gimme the blues at the Tunica Motel
