The song is a typical blues tune in the key of C chord diagramCC. So during the first 8 bars of the vers
can easily mess around and play all sorts of licks in the key of C chord diagramCC, before it changes
F chord diagramFF and G chord diagramGG.
Listen to the song and you'll get it :)

Chord changes:

C chord diagramCC
Well, I fly off the handle a little too quick,

Just call me a nervous man.

For the last week or two, it don't take too much,

To make me wanna raise the sand. Yeah...
F chord diagramFF
Well, it's one of those days,

When you`d rather not be,
G chord diagramGG
So low down and dirty,

Your luck's out at sea.
