Took a bit for me to find it but at last here it is

You Got The Silver
Let It Bleed

Open D tuning Capo at 3rd and break out a slide if you want to do it like the Stones. Just a side note, A second guitar in Nashville Tuning playing barred chords behind the slide sounds really good.

Almost the whole song is based on two chords, an F and a Bb
So, with the Capo on the third fret the F is an open chord (Not fretted), Alternate between a slide down to the 8th for your Bb and playing it in this position

The Intro goes like this:

D |-------|--------3-3---------------|------------3-3-----|
A |-------|--------------------------|--------------------|
D |-----8-|-(8)-------------------8-|-(8)---------------|
F# |-3-/8--|--8----------3----3-/8---|--8--------------3-|
A |-------|--------------------------|--------------------|
D |-------|--------------------------|--------------------|

These slides should be really "Greasy" sounding, not sure exactly how to explain that concept, but you kind of want a "Cat in Heat" sound

Verse goes like this:
Hey babe, what's in your eyes? I saw them
D |-------|-----------3------------------|----------3---------------------|
A |---5---|-------------3------------5---|------------3----------------3/-|
D |-4---4-|4p3-3-------------------4---4-|4p3-3------------------------3/-|
F# |-------|-------3-------3---3----------|-------3------3---3----------3/-|
A |-------|------------------------------|-----------------------------3/-|
D |-------|------------------------------|--------------------------------|

Bb F
flashing, like airplane lights You fill my
D |------------------------------|-----------3--------------------|
A |-/8---------------------------|----------------------------3---|
D |-/8----------------------8-8--|-8-3---------------------3---3-|
A |-/8----------------------8-8--|-8-----------------------------|
D |------------------------------|--------------------------------|

Bb F
cup babe, that's for sure But I must come
D |-3----------------------------|-----------3--------------------|
A |-5------------------------5---|--------------------------------|
D |-4----------------------4---4-|4p3-3---------------------------|
A |-5----------------------------|--------------------------------|
D |------------------------------|--------------------------------|
back for a little more
D |-3----------------------------|-3------------------------------|
A |-5----------------------------|-5------------------------------|
D |-4----------------------------|-4------------------------------|
A |-5----------------------------|-5------------------------------|
D |------------------------------|--------------------------------|

Now comes the turnaround: If your doing this with 2 guitars the 2nd one doesn't play duringthe turn around

D |-------------------|-------------------------|
A |-------------------|-------------------------|
D |-8--8---5--5--3----|-3---3-3---3--3---3------|
A |-----------------5-|-3h5---3h5----3----------|
D |-------------------|----------------------3--|

2nd Verse played the same followed by the Break:

C C C C C G# F
D |------------------|----------------|----|
A |------------------|----------------|----|
D |-10---X-10---/10--|-X-10--/10--/6--|-3--|
A |-10---X-10---/10--|-X-10--/10--/6--|-3--|
D |-10---X-10---/10--|-X-10--/10--/6--|-3--|

Follow the verse/turnaround pattern to the end of the song and then we get to the Big Finale

C C C C C C G# F
D |--------------|--------------|--------------|---------|
A |--------------|--------------|--------------|---------|
D |-10--X--/10--|-10--X--/10--|-10--X--/10--|-/6---3--|
A |-10--X--/10--|-10--X--/10--|-10--X--/10--|-/6---3--|
D |-10--X--/10--|-10--X--/10--|-10--X--/10--|-/6---3--|

And there you have it.

Here are the additional verses:

You got my heart, you got my soul
You got the silver, you got the gold
You got the diamonds, from the mines
And that`s all right, it`ll buy some time

Tell me honey, what should I do
When I am hungry, and thirsty too
Feeling foolish, and that`s for sure
Just waiting here, at your kitchen door

Hey baby, what`s in your eyes
Is that the diamonds, from the mines
What`s that laughing, in your smile
I don`t care, no I don`t care

Oh baby, you got the soul
You got the silver, you got the gold
A flash of love, just made me blind
I don`t care, no that`s no big surprise

Immature? Of course I'm immature Einstein, I'm 50 and in a Rock and ROll band.

Nice job, Ron. Well laid out and easy to follow.

This is one of the few tracks on "Let It Bleed" I've never managed to work out - the only downside is, I can't afford another guitar to keep in open D.......

:D :D :D
