Song: I'm Ready
Artist: Muddy Waters
Transcriber: Carl

  There are 2 versions of this song that I know of. One is a moderately
fast shuffle on The Best of Muddy Waters(This Is The Version Most People
Know), then there is a really fast version on The London Muddy Waters
Sessions with a horn section and stuff. I'm not sure of the key, but I
think its D (thats what I have it here in). I really only did this so
people would know the lyrics, which are hard to understand. You can play
it in any key you want, just have fun.

I'm ready, ready as anybody can be
    G7                         D7
I'm ready, ready as anybody can be
I'm ready for you,
  G7                    D7    A7
I hope you're ready for me.

(riff)N.C.(D)           (riff)
I got an axe-hounds face made on a graveyard frame
(riff)                      (riff)
Shootin' tombstone bullets, wearin' ball and chain
(riff)            (riff)
I'm drinkin' TNT, smokin' dynamite
(riff)            (riff) D//////////
I hope some screwball...start a fight
         G7                         D7
'Cause I'm ready, ready as anybody can be
Now I'm ready for you,
  G7                   D7   A7
I hope you're ready for me.

VERSE 2 (NOTE: on the London Muddy Waters version, the 2nd & 3rd verses
are switched):

All you pretty little chicks with your pretty little hair,
I know you think that I ain't nowhere
But stop what your doin' an' look over here,
I'll prove to ya, baby, that I ain't no square


I been drinkin' gin like never before
I feel so good, babe, I want you to know
One more drink, and I wish you would
I takes a whole lotta lovin' to make me feel good, cause
