1. * 'Live' version varies from studio recording with an extra-long Intro., (x5 vs X3) refrains.
** In 'Live on the River Boat Queen' version long-sustain on D chord (x24) to
the band and wind-up the band's performance.
2. If I get the opportunity, I'll add Jimmie Vaughan's Lead riffs to a future version.
