the blues line is not quite standard 12 bar blues, the lyrics are, just not the music.

#to make it sound better, you could play it as a standard blues, 12 bar progression. The  
appears to be playing a regular blues underneath what the guitar does. The recording I  
is somewhat muddy in terms of that, but this is what it sounds like to me.
