Milkcow Blues(K.Arnold)

  Arrangement by Aerosmith
  Performed by Aerosmith on "Draw The Line"(1977)
  Transcribed by Bryson Meunier

        This post includes most of the rhythm parts and the lyrics. My
technical ability allows me to play Aerosmith solos but not to figure them
out. Anyone who wants to post the solos is more than welcome but for now
you'll have to settle for the riffs.

intro/verse riff(guitar 1)-
       |----------PM---------|
   E--------------------------------|
   B--------------------------------|
   G-----------------------3--------|
   D-----5----5p3----------3--------|
   A-----------------5--------------|
   E--------------------------------|

Guitar one repeats this riff through the verse. Guitar two backs guitar one
with a similar riff. When Steven says "pack" in the line "pack my bags I'm
gone", one of the guitars plays this riff:
                                C5       Bb5
   E-----------------------------------------------------------------|
   B-----------------------------------------------------------------|
   G-----------------------------5----5--3------5----5--3------------|
   D----5----3-------------------5----5--3------5----5--3------------|
   A-------------5----3---1------3----3--1------3----3--1------------|
   E-----------------------------------------------------------------|

The verse riff appears sporadically throughout the song. During the
harmonica part at the end, the rhythm guitar plays this:
      F5               G5
   E--------------------------------------------|
   B--------------------------------------------|
   G--------------------------------------------|
   D---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---------|
   A---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---------|
   E---1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3---------|

Repeat this part until the very end and then stop and do something like this:
                     ~feedback~
   E-----------------------------------------------------3\\----------------|
   B-----------------------------------------------------3\\(14)------------|
   G---6b(hold)----6r~~~~~~------------------------------3\\----(16)--------|
   D---------------------------5---3-------------------------------------5--|
   A-----------------------------------5---3---1--1tr(3)-----------------5--|
   E---------------------------------------------------------------------3--|

symbols used in transcription:

lyrics:

        Yeah I've tried ev'ry thing just to get along with you
        But now I'm gonna tell ya just what I'm gonna do
        Well I'm sick of all your cryin' when you should be leavin me alone
        If you don't believe me, you pack my bags I'm gone!

        Won't you please...Don't act so no good goin down(2x)
        (this line is unintelligible)
        When your old man ain't around

        (on the second time substitute) Well you best believe I love you baby
        When your old man ain't around

        (Guitar solo 1)

        (Guitar solo 2)

        Harmonica solo

        Won't you please...Don't act so no good goin' down(2x)
        Well you best believe I love you baby
        when your old man ain't around

        ain't around ain't around...(lead vocal ad lib)
