|Alternate between these throughout the verse,|
|listen to the song for how Davy plays it     |


I was born in the back seat
Of a travellin' hurricane
I came up in the back streets
The city with no name
I was raised on trouble
Rock when I should roll
I never could control it
And I can't be controlled

I am what I am
I am the back door slam

[Verse 2]

When I walk down the streets
The streetlights go out
When I drive through your town
The dogs start to howl
I stand in the shadows 
Sparks are in my hair
When i open up my mouth
My voice fills the air

[CHORUS]

I am what I am
I am the back door slam

|Also, Davy mimics the melody note for note when|  
|he sings the last line of the bridge.          |
|Something along the lines of:                  |

People say
I'm charming
People say
I'm alarming
People can feel
the disturbance around me
I don't care what they say they see


[Solo]

|Goodluck, only Davy can play it!|


[Bridge]

People say
I'm Strange
People say
I'm dangerous
People can feel
That a deal was struck
Save my soul and
Make my own luck


[Main Riff then Verse 3]

I was born in the city
A city with no shame
And when I play guitar
They all know my name


[CHORUS]

I am what I am
I am the back door slam
I am what I am
I am the back door slam

I tabbed this from a performance Back Door Slam did at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, PA. 
I realize this is a Robert Cray original, so I'm posting a version he performs as well. 
This is my third tab for Back Door Slam, I hope people begin tabbing more of Davy's work, 
or correcting some of the tabs I have posted (It'll All Come Around, Heavy on My Mind, this).
