Zz Top
Jesus Just Left Chicago
Standard Tuning

You can get the turnaround and solo from other tabs out there. I think this gives 
you a real easy to follow chord arrangement with lyrics.

The GuitarPro tab I looked at showed this song with 3 guitars. I've played it with 
two - one doing these chords, turnaround, and solo. And the other guitar doing the 
basic blues shuffle.
