Nickel Blues – Johnny Winter

Johnny WinterTaken from Johnny Winter’s “White, Hot and Blue” album and accompanied on piano by his brother Edgar Winter.

Johnny flat picks this on a guitar with super dead bass strings, however this piece sounds just fine with regular strings and unaccompanied. You can always use palm muting if you want.

This is not a note for note transcription, but rather how I play it after a great many years. I have inserted the chords just so you know the inversions you are playing around, not that you should attempt to grab them.

Nickel Blues – Johnny Winter

(Oh yeah, go ahead now)

Sometime I feel so evil it hurt my mind to think
(Yeah that’s bad man)
Sometime I get so evil, you know it hurt my mind to think
(Ha ha)
Sometime I get so weary you know it hurt my feet to stink
(That’s bad news too)

You know I get to wonderin’, people should I go or stay
Well get to wonderin’, should I go or should I stay
Sometimes I feel it don’t matter anyway
(Yeah you know what I’m talkin’ about)

Seems like there ain’t no reason for me feelin’ so damn blue
Can’t get no satisfaction, I don’t care what I do
Seem like there ain’t no reason for me feelin’ so damn blue
(Yes that’s true now)
I can’t get no satisfaction, baby, I don’t care what I do
(Yeah, I don’t care, man, let me hear some)

(Go ahead, Ed)

I believe I’ll pack my suitcase, throw a nickel in the air
(I’m gonna throw it high too, man, just like me)
I believe I’ll pack my suitcase, throw a nickel in the air
(Yeah)
And it come down tails I’m gonna get mine out of here
(Yes it’s about time to move on, man)

(Gotta watch them tails)
(Yeah)
