The Riff (usually done on bass):

E ------------------------------------------|

[RIFF] I was taught a month ago
[RIFF] To bide my time and take it slow
[RIFF] But then I learned just yesterday
[RIFF] To rush and never waste the day
[RIFF] Now I'm convinced the whole day long
[RIFF] That all I learn is always wrong
[RIFF] And things are true that I forget
[RIFF] Well no one taught that to me yet

[lightly strum an A chord, getting gradually louder, then
forcefully hit A  G]

E                           G                    A
I-I'm off to see the man Mulcahey, I'm off to see the man
Mulcahey (x4)

fade out with refrains along the lines of:]

I - I . . . . I - . . . .

I - I . . . . I - . . . .

I - I'm off to see the man Mulcahey,  I'm off to see the man

That should hold you rascals for now!
(when I play this tune, I put an Asus4-A-Asus4-A quick
change at the verse ends that isn't necessary...Trey doesn't
play it, but if you're playing alone on a guitar - as I
usually do - it substitutes in for Page's piano fills.)

(Oh, and I didn't transcribe the solo because, well... I
don't have the patience, and I can barely solo anyway.
