This strumming (riff 1, guitar 1) goes on in the background pretty much
for the whole song (except the Eb D G 'chorus' bit). Over the top of it
alternates between guitar 2 playing riff 2 and guitar 3 playing riff 1
over again.

[intro]:  riff 2   x 4


   [riff1]
I dreamed about Ray Charles last night

                                    [riff 2]
and he could see just fine you know

  [riff1]
I asked him for a lullaby
                                 [riff 2]
he said honey I don't sing no more



['chorus'] :
   Eb  D       G
no more    no more

   Eb    D                  G [riff 2]
no more  Ray don't sing no more


[riff2]


[riff1]
he said since I got my eyesight back
my voice has just deserted me
no georgia on my  mind no more
                     [riff2]
I stay in bed with mtv


[riff2]


[riff1]
then Ray took his glasses off
and I could look inside his head
flashing like a thunderstorm
                       [riff2]
I saw a shining spider web


      Eb D          G
spider web spider web
       Eb      D             G [riff2]
spider web  in Ray Charles' head


[riff2]


[riff1]
I dreamed about Ray Charles last night
                          [riff2]
he took me flying in the air

[riff1]
he showed me my own spider web
                                 [riff2]
and said honey you had best take care


[riff1]
the world is made of spider webs
their threads are stuck to me and you
be careful what you're wishing for
                                   [riff2]
coz when you gain you just might lose
you just might lose your



      Eb D          G

[riff1]
when you're feeling lonely
when you're hiding in your bed
don't forget your string of pearls
                          [riff2]
don't forget your spider web


[riff2]


[over bongos]
when I go to sleep tonight
don't let me dream of rubber Ray [bass E-3--10-13-15--10-13--3-]

                              [riff2]
just like him best the other way

        Eb   D              G [riff2]
spider web in Ray Charles' head



     [riff2]
||:  all I got's my spider web keeping me alive    :||




chords :

Most of the strumming is done on the top four strings only
   x_x________
   | | | | | |     so for everything except the 'chorus'
   |_|_|_|_1_1     (Eb  D  G bit), just move this shape
   | | | | | |      around
   |_|_|_2_|_|
   | | | | | |
   |_|_3_|_|_|
   | | | | | |

/ is slide up
\ is slide down
h is hammer-on
p is pull-off

7pb(8)r7 is fret at 7, pre-bend to 8 then pick and release bend

 --/--- is a strum
 --x---- is strum but mute the strings at the neck


there's still something not quite right with this, any improvements
welcome.....
