Soul man   Sam and Dave








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

    anyone got the guiatr parts to this. I know the start but not the 
    riff.

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.
