NOTES:

- Rhythm guitar repeats the main riff throughout
  the entire song and plays Fill #1 after the
  last line of the chorus.

- Lead guitar plays the licks and the solo, and
  plays Fill #2 after the last line of the chorus.

- During chorus, play the main riff starting from
  the second line of tab.

- There are no guitars during the verses (only drums).

- I haven't transcribed the solo here.. it's tough!


Here's the entire song setup, with the lyrics:

Intro = Main Riff x1

Good golly miss molly (lick #1)
Sure like a ball (lick #2)
Good golly miss molly (lick #1)
Sure like to ball (lick #2)
When you're rockin' and a-rollin' (lick #1)
Can't hear your mama call (fill #1)

Verse:
From the early early morning
To the early early night
You can see miss molly rockin'
At the house of blue light

Chorus:
Good golly miss molly (lick #1)
Sure like to ball (lick #2)
When you're rockin' and a-rollin' (lick #1)
Can't hear your mama call (fill #1)

Verse:
Her mom and poppa told me
"Son, you better watch your step"
If I knew my mom and pop
I'll have to watch my poppa's step

Chorus:
Good golly miss molly (lick #1)
Sure like to ball (lick #2)
When you're rockin' and a-rollin' (lick #1)
Can't hear your mama call (fill #1 into solo)

Verse:
I'm goin' to the corner
Gonna buy a diamond ring
Would you pardon me again son
And a dang-a-lang-a-ling

Chorus:
Good golly miss molly (lick #1)
Sure like to ball (lick #2)
When you're rockin' and a-rollin' (lick #1)
Can't hear your mama call (fill #1 into solo)

Chorus:
Good golly miss molly (lick #1)
Sure like to ball (lick #2)
When you're rockin' and a-rollin' (lick #1)
Can't hear your mama call (fill #1, a bit faster)
