My first post to this site, so I hope it looks ok :)

As with a lot of Rolling Stones songs, Keith Richards tunes his guitar to
an 'open G chord diagramGG' (low to high: D chord diagramDD,G,D,G,B,D) tuning. The  6th (lowest) string is
removed when playing this song. Another more or less trademark of
Richards.

Intro:                       P          M   M
D chord diagramDD----|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B chord diagramBB--5-|:-6-6---------5-|--6-6-5-5-5-6---|----------------|--------3-3-3-5:|
G chord diagramGG--5-|--5-5---------5-|--5-5-5-5-5-5-0-|3---3---3---3-3-|----3---3-3-3-5-|
D chord diagramDD--5-|:-7-7---------5-|--7-7-5-5-5-7-0-|3---5---3---5-3-|--3-5-3-3-3-3-5:|
G chord diagramGG--5-|--------------5-|--5-5-5-5-5-5-0-|3---3---3-3---3-|--3-3-3-------5-|

That repeats a few times up until the Chorus. Here is the Chorus

Chorus:

G chord diagramGG |10------10--10--10--8---7---5---|

* = This chord is not really played. You already played it (the last chord
in the intro) The chord is just carried into the chorus.

Note that I have also not tabbed in the lowest string.

P = pull-off.
M = muted note.
/ = slide up.
: = repeat.

Any probs, feel free to mail me.

	Have fun :)
	Mike.
