My Friend  Jimi Hendrix

Chords-intro(G7 D7 G7 C G7 D7), (G C F F# G)2X, B Em Em/D C
G Bb/F C/E C#dim Edim Gdim A#dim, G B/F# Em Em/D C F G
(SPOKEN): "You all pass me that bottle. I'll sing
you a real song."
Well I'm [G]looking through [C7]Harlem, my stomach [F]squeals just a [F#]little [G]more.
The s[G]tagecoach full of [C/E]feathers and footprints rolls [F]up to my [F#]soapbox [G]door.
Now a [B/F#]lady with a pearl handled necktie tied [Em]to the [Em/D]driver's [C]fence
G Bb/F C/E C#dim Edim Gdim A#dim*
breathes in my face bourbon and coke possessed words,
"Haven't I [G]seen you some[B/F#]where in [Em]hell, or [Em/D]was it [C]just an [F]acci[G]dent?"
(play first two measures of intro and say)
"You know how I felt then"
And [B/F#]sometimes it's not so easy 'specially [Em]when [Em/D]your only [C]friend
[G]talks, [B/F#]sees, looks and [Em]feels like[Em/D] you. You [C]do just the [F]same as [G]him.
(play intro and say)
"It gets very lonely out here in this room baby"
[G7] [D7] [C7] [G7] [C7] [G7] [D7]  

* Diminished riff:
[C#dim] [Edim] [Gdim] [A#dim]

It should be noted that around the "G Bb/F C/E" part before the Diminished run, Jimi does a bass walkdown on the "G" chord by holding the "G" and walking down to "F#" then "F" then "open E".
