5↓. don't forget to use hand & throat tremolo's. experiment to
find out where he use one or the other or even both techniques.

Lyrics: 11:45 before it began to rain
        I heard someone say Sonny Boy.
        and I know that was my name
        (who called ya)
        I don't know

        I don't know

        But I'm trying to get in touch with my baby to find out why
she disappointed me so

        I met the greyhound bus
        And I met the train
        she was on neither one
        I want to know what was to blame
        I don't know
        (you mean she didn't come in)
        I don't know

        But I'm trying to get in touch with my baby to find out why
she disappointed me so

((-harp break is in the tonic-))

Lyrics: I received a special delivery'em
        I received a telegram
        Then she called me long distance
        she want to know
        Just where I am
        (for what?)
        I don't know

        Man I just don't know

        But I'm still trying to get in touch with my baby to find out
why she disappointed me so

        thats right thats right

Harp Break: quickly slide 4↓ to 5↓ back to 4↓ with
hand & throat tremolo, experiment w/tremolos. back to 5↓ hold,
add tremolo. now go to 4↓ and cut it off quickly & do that three
more times. now play 5↓ 4↓ 4↓ 4↓ 5↓
5↑ 4↓ 3↑ 2↓♭ 1↓ as a single flow,
the three sets of four draw are cut off sharply just as above, add
tremolo on one draw. to end the riff do 3↓♭ w/tremolo then
to 5↓ 5↑ 3↓ 4↓.

Lyrics: I know she should have come be highway
        or either come by rail
        But she got my
        head in my hand
        wondering what to call her to feel
        (for what?)

        I don't know
        Man I just don't know

        I'm sittin wondering why
        my baby disappoint me so.

((-harp break is in the tonic-))

simplified
       5↓  4↓ (hand & throat tremolo)
       5↓ (tremolo) 4↓, 4↓, 4↓, 4↓
