This is a Keith riff rocker.  
It was cut by Keith, Bobby Keyes (sax) and Jim Price (drums) 
whilst waiting for the rest of the band to turn up. 
 
 
go into open G (take the low E string off) tune to GDGBD  
(strings 5,4,3,2,1 respectively) put a capo on the fourth fret  
so that open string (00000) will be B. 
 
CHORDS:   
B= 00000 
B2= 02010 
RIFF1 - BASED AROUND `E` 
RIFF2 - BASED AROUND `E` 
There are 2 riffs in the Chorus.  
the  first riff goes like this (repeated twice) 
 
------5-------5 
5-5-6-5-6-6-6-5 
5-5-7-5-5-5-5-5

Well I never kept a dollar past sunset, 
 
it always burned a hole in my pants. 
 
Never made a school mama happy, 
 
never blew a second chance on love.

Always took candy from strangers, 
 
didn't wanna get me no trade. 
 
Never want to be like papa, 
 
working for the boss ev'ry night and day.

Never got a flash out of cocktails, 
 
when I got some flesh off the bone. 
 
Never got a lift out of Lear jets, 
 
when I can fly way back home.

I need a love to keep me happy, 
RIFF1 
I need a love to keep me happy.
