Thin Air (Smells Like Mississippi)
Music transcribed by: Adam Stern
Intro:
|-------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------|
|------7-9-9------7-9-----7-9-9-----7-------|
|---7/9-------7/9-----7/9--------7/9--------|
|------------------------------------10-7---|

JB wah part towards the middle of the the intro:
|------------------------|
|---------10-8-----10b---|
|---7--9-------7-9-------|
|------------------------|
|------------------------|
|------------------------|

Main groove is Em, play around with Em7, too

Em
Drivin' in the walkin' rain
Let's go, let's go
Stream down my windowpane
Thru the fields, where does all the water go?

Stirring in my sleeping bag
There I stew
Holdin' tight the teddy bear
Dreamin' about you

C > G > D
C > G > D
C > G > D > A
C > G > D  >  D# > Em
        Feels like Mississippi

Em
Billy Parker on his high tractor
Workin' the dirt all day
The sun and the moon, they're trading places
Better never put that plow away

Yeah, momma was stickin' to her story
Happened wars ago
But Billy walkin' funny now
'Cause he got shot by that local so and so

C > G > D
C > G > D
C > G > D > A
C > G > D  >  D# > Em
        Feels like Mississippi

Jam over Em (solo is pretty much E pentatonic minor)

C > G > D
C > G > D
C > G > D > A
C > G > D  >  D# > Em
        Feels like Mississippi

Em
Belly on up boys to your favorite back
Then you learn how to paint
She might never, never come back
Guitars can talk on just one string
Lord beat that drum boy, boy, boy, boy
With a turkey leg

C > G > D
C > G > D
C > G > D > A
C > G    >    D  > D#  >   Em
        Goin' back to Mississippi

Wah single notes around 4:35 mark:
G-D-E-A-G-D-A (last one bent with a little warble)

Closing:
First line of the intro twice
End on Em


previous track:
Fishing
next track:
