Riding With The King
Bb King And Eric Clapton
As I felt to sing those memories of BB these days, I noticed that there are no real tabs around. So let's make BB proud. The thrill is not gone and we need to keep that goddamn blues alive! #GodIsRock, Chris Recommendation: Don't play as usual in Blues the B7 and G7 as a standard chord. Play them in 7th and 3rd bar as Eric does. Key: B7 (Blues - mixolydian) BB and Eric are playing B- Blues scale most of the time, while BB keeps in his BB-Box. Intro: A7|A7|B7|B7| Vers 1: B7 I dreamed I had a good job and I got well paid. B7 E7 I blew it all at the penny arcade. B7 A hundred dollars on a kewpie doll. E7 B7 No pretty chick is gonna make me crawl. Chorus 1: G7 F7 E7 Get on a TWA to the promised land. F#7 G7 Every woman, child and man A7 Gets a Cadillac and a great big diamond ring. A7 B7 E7 B7 Don't you know you're riding with the king? Vers 2: B7 He's on a mission of mercy to the new frontier, B7 E7 He's gonna check us all on out of here. B7 Up to that mansion on a hill E7 B7 Where you can get your prescription filled. Chorus 2: G7 F7 E7 Get on a TWA to the promised land. F#7 G7 Everybody clap your hands. A7 And don't you just love the way that he sings? A7 B7 A7 Don't you know we're riding with the king? (Riding with the king.) A7 B7 Don't you know we're riding with the king? Bridge: D7 B7 A tuxedo and shiny 335. D7 B7 You can see it in his face, the blues is alive. G7 A7 Tonight everybody's getting their angel wings. A7 B7 And don't you know we're riding with the king? End (spoken by BB King chords going on.../solo guitar played by Eric Clapton): I stepped out of Mississippi when I was ten years old With a suit cut sharp as a razor and a heart made of gold. I had a guitar hanging just about waist high And I'm gonna play this thing until the day I die. E7 B7 E7 Don't you know we're riding with the king? E7 B7 E7 Don't you know we're riding with the king? E7 B7 E7 Riding, you're riding with the king. E7 B7 (originally fading out) You're riding, you're riding with the king. instead of fading out, you can of course end on B7 or B7#9.
