    This is an old one. Slow blues in C, but 8 bars. And in 12/8. Bar 5 starts in F and then raises the root by a half step for an F# diminished chord. Bar 6 is a great slash chord. It's a C chord, but the G in the bass in important to the bass line. I love the chord progression.

    That's one version. If one knows the song, there's no need for tabs, whatever version.

    I much prefer the older versions ... here's one from 1929 ...



    And another a little more recent ...



    and this too ...

    Thanks. Louis Jordan was the only other version I had heard, and I had assumed that he wrote it until I looked up Jimmy Cox. I'm a big fan of Louis Jordan's music.
    Also, I corrected a couple of notes on the transcription at the suggestion of a careful listener.

    Ok ... I have never posted in this sub-forum (I don't use tabs ... ever), and posted in error not realizing where I was posting ... so sue me. Or beat me up. I don't give a rip.

    Welcome to the Tabs and Notation Forum! We renamed it from just plain Tabs, because there was no obvious Forum for standard notation. Also, many transcriptions include both standard notation and tabs. I guess the content of the Forum still isn't obvious from the title of the Forum.

    The title is self explanatory ... IF one actually reads it. ;)
