Song: I let my computer tab this from a midi version.  I attached a file
that shows score with the tab.

Here's Led Zeppelin's version on YouTube:

And here's an interesting version by Robert Plant & the Strange
Sensation:

The original version was done by Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie
in 1929.  Wanna hear it?  Click here:

(Edit):
A day or two after posting this song, I realized it could use a couple
of those guitar riffs if you want to play the "harp" tab and the
"vocal" tab together. 

It's late, I'm tired and I couldn't stop myself¦I had to post the
following without downloading the midi to my software again, so this
may not be quite accurate.  Close enough, I think.



Here's that catchy guitar riff before the vocal passage:
(Play twice)
6 6 6 6 6    6 -6 -6 -6 -6 -6    
-6 6 -6 -4                          
-6 6 -6 -4                          


And the other familiar guitar part:

(Play twice)
-6    -8 -8
 6     7  7
-5    -6 -6    7 7 -8

And the other guitar part kinda like above, but with more notes:
(Play twice)
-6 6 -5  -8
-6 6 -5  7
-6 6 -5    7 7 -8
