    Billy Paul had a No. 1 hit in 1972 with this tune about marital infidelity.
    46 years later, the song still fills the dance floor.

    Billy Paul died in April 2016. The recording of "Me and Mrs Jones" will be inducted into the 2018 Grammy Hall of Fame.

    I took a lot of liberties scoring (thanks, MuseScore) a bass line for this song. I encourage you to loosely interpret what I wrote down here.

    And, swing away on those eighth notes.
