RORY GALLAGHER - Pistol slapper blues

You find this acoustic song on the "Live! in Europe"-album from 1972,
not an original Rory-composition, but a fine work-out of theold Blind
Boy Fuller song. Rory himself played it for years.
I think for the '72 recording he used his Martin acoustic,later indeed
he prefered a restaurated 30er National.
A chord diagramAA little part towards the end I couldn't finger out yet, sorry.
