You Can Leave Your Hat On  Joe Cocker

You Can Leave Your Hat On, Interpretation
=========================================
Artist....: Joe Cocker
Title.....: You Can Leave Your Hat On
Author....: Frank Gro▀gasteiger
http://www.dregenrocks.de
Version...: 4th October 2006
Comment...: While searching for this song on the web, I found some real crap
and some medium crap, but nothing really satisfying, so here is my premium
interpretation of this song. Nevertheless I thought about tranposing this song
into E-Minor for a possible Metal-Version of this cool song, but for now the
original way should be quite enough. :-)
Use chord-variations on your own.
Song Key..: C-Minor
[INTRO] 
(Nice lick over Eb, also using during the Bridge near the end of the song.
Try to play it quite smoothly, maybe using hammer-on's.)

It sounds more correct in a major or major 7th than a minor progression to me.
