This is a cover of some old '50s tune that Tuff covered on their 1995 Religious Fix
I'm a guitarist but I couldn't resist the very slow, very easy, very dark bass line here.

- Jordan Lee Smith (2006)


The intro, verse and chorus is just the following repeated over and over.

|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|-2----------------------|-------------------1----|
|-------------5----------|-4--------2-----4-------|

|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|-2----------------------|-------------------1----|
|-------------5----------|-4--------2-----4-------|


|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|-2----------------------|-------------------1----|
|-------------5----------|-3--------2-----4-------|

After the intro and chorus this part is played along with an organ.

|-4----------------------|------------------------|
|-------4----------------|------------------------|
|-------------5-----2----|-------1----2-----------|
|------------------------|-2---4------------------|

That's the whole song. The ordering is pretty simple if you listen to the song. Thanks.
