Since I mentioned this song over in the "Fingerpicking" Topic in O&P I thought I'd post it here for anyone who wants to give it a go.
I got The Blues
Jagger/Richards
From Sticky Fingers

INTRO

Part 2

Guitar 1 and 2 are pretty much vertically aligned for timing. The * means notes are played at the same time
in 1 and 2.
You will almost definately have to listen to the cd to get it right...

For this section Guitar #1 finger picks the same pattern as in Part 1 of intro

VERSE:

As I stand by your flame
Em C
I get burned once again

Feeling low down and blue

VERSE:

As I sit by the fire
Em C
Of your warm desire
G D C G G G G D
I got the blues for you, yeah / / / /

CHORUS:
A D
Every night you've been away
A D
I've sat down, I have prayed
C G D
That you're safe in the arms of a guy
Em C
Who will bring you alive
G D C G
Won't drag you down with abuse, oh

INSTRUMENTAL: C G C G D
~~~~Some slide works really well for this break~~~~~~~~~~~

VERSE:

In the silk sheet of time
Em C
I will find peace of mind
G D C G
Love is a bed full of blues

OUTRO:

And I've got the blues for you
D C G
And I've got the blues for you
D C G
And I've bust my brains out for you
D
And I'll tear my hair out
C G
I'm gonna tear my hair out just for you
D
If you don't believe what I'm saying
C
At three o' clock in the morning, babe
G
Well, I'm singing my song for you.

Very Nice, thanks. So... along these lines, you wouldn't happen to have one of my favorite RS tunes... "You Got The Silver" now would you :)
