I've done the time thingies on top of each bit as 234 1234 1 instead
of the usual 1234 1234 as that's the way the riffs are phrased.
I hope it make sense when you're playing it :) Throughout the song,
play a mixture of the first and second riffs.  The harmonica comes
in after every second verse.  I was going to write the lyrics but I
can't decipher many of them :)

Any comments/corrections/suggestions welcome... :)

Cheers,
