Guitar one repeats this riff through the verse. Guitar two backs guitar one
with a similar riff. When Steven says "pack" in the line "pack my bags I`m
gone", one of the guitars plays this riff:
C5 Bb5

G-----------------------------5----5--3------5----5--3------------|
D----5----3-------------------5----5--3------5----5--3------------|
A-------------5----3---1------3----3--1------3----3--1------------|

The verse riff appears sporadically throughout the song. During the
harmonica part at the end, the rhythm guitar plays this:
F5 G5

lyrics:

Yeah I`ve tried ev`ry thing just to get along with you
But now I`m gonna tell ya just what I`m gonna do
Well I`m sick of all your cryin` when you should be leavin me alone
If you don`t believe me, you pack my bags I`m gone!

Won`t you please...Don`t act so no good goin down(2x)
(this line is unintelligible)
When your old man ain`t around

(on the second time substitute) Well you best believe I love you baby
When your old man ain`t around

(Guitar solo 1)

(Guitar solo 2)

Won`t you please...Don`t act so no good goin` down(2x)
Well you best believe I love you baby
when your old man ain`t around

ain`t around ain`t around...(lead vocal ad lib)
