Hard Time Killing Floor Blues Tab

This song was originally written by Skip James, but the version posted here
is the version played by Chris Thomas King, from the O Brother Where Art Thou
soundtrack. 

Note 1: There are small variations in this song while it is played to
give the song life and keep it interesting.

Note 2: At the end of the song, as it fades out, you can hear Chris start
back with Riff 6, but you can make up your own ending.
