#HESITATION BLUES (trad., after J. Kaukonnen, as recorded on the LP##blues tune, in "swung" 4/4, i.e. every quarter is subdivided in 3#of thing is written down, it is traditionally written as dotted#1/2. Clear as mud? Count it as ah 1 and ah 2 and ah 3 and ah 4,#notes are at a normal walking speed.#Notes:#1. Low notes, on the beat, are always played by the thumb# other notes--just use the most obvious convenient finger within#3.#^= 1/2 tone push#h= hammer on#==== sustained note#4. The vamp in the first line shows h's before the treble notes in the## know. It is pretty obvious, once you get the feel. I never play it##my best guess. I'd be happy to hear alternate "translations".#Tim Keenan#UNIVERSITY OF NEW BRUNSWICK#I hope someone enjoys this--let me know.#

Well, the eagle on the dollar says "in God we trust"
You say you want a man, I wanna see that dollar first, tell me--
(Chorus)
If the river was whiskey, and I was a duck,
You know I'd swim to the bottom, Lord, an' never come up, tell me--
(Chorus)
Rocks in the ocean, baby, fish in the sea
knows you mean the world to me, tell me--
(Chorus)
Well, the hesitatin' stalker's got them hesitatin' shoes
Lord, I got them Hesitatin' Blues, tell me--
How long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, Lord, must I hestitate
Said, can I get you now, how long must I hesitate?
