Soul man

Soul Man - Sam and Dave (words and Music by: David Porter and Isaac Hayes)
This is how I play soul man (please feel free to correct this file):
Verse 1: Comin' to you on a dusty road Good lovin', I got a truck load And when you get it, you got somethin' So don't worry 'cause I'm comin'
Chorus: I'm a soul man I'm a soul man I'm a soul man I'm a soul man
Verse 2: Got what I got the hard way And I'll make it better each and every day Be sure hony, don't you fret 'Cause you ain't seen nothin' yet.
Chorus: I'm a soul man I'm a soul man I'm a soul man I'm a soul man
Verse 3: I was brought up on a side street I learned how to love before I could eat I was educated at Woodstock When I start lovin', oh I just can't stop
Chorus: I'm a soul man I'm a soul man I'm a soul man I'm a soul man
Bridge: Well grab your rope and I'll pull you in Give you hope and be your only boyfriend

The chords for the main riff go:
E1 E2 Gm (E1 and E2 are different inversions of the E chord)
E 0 x x B 5 9 7 G 4 9 6 D 6 9 7 A x x x E x x x
Timing is Bo-Diddley-ish like this:
q e q. e e | e e q q q 4 | - E1 E1 E1 r Gm| Gm Gm E2 E1 r 4 |
(q= quarter, e= eighth, r= rest)
Hope this helps.
