Jesus Just Left Chicago
Standard Tuning

You can get the turnaround and solo from other tabs out there. I think this gives 
you a real easy to follow chord arrangement with lyrics.

The GuitarPro tab I looked at showed this song with 3 guitars. I've played it with 
two - one doing these chords, turnaround, and solo. And the other guitar doing the 
basic blues shuffle.

Can it be that the chord sign are written under the lyrics? That would make much more sense.
