I think the version in G is called "Country Honk" (don't know

from what album).  It think it is done with acoustic guitars.



Here is a chopro version of Honky Tonk Woman in A.

   Goes on and on..                           Here we go again..

     These G5-chords are played on the upstrokes, but listen to the record to

     get the correct rythm..



                |              |            |           |

G---------------0-7-----------4-gl-2-4-----0-2-0-

D-----------------7-----------4-gl-2-5---------0-

A-----------0h2---5------------------5-----------

E---------3--------------------------3-----------



Now the chorus comes along.. G chord and D chord, and then a little riff:



e---------------------

B--12---13-12---13-12-

G--12---14-12---14-12-

D--12---12-12---12-12-

A---------------------

E---------------------

This riff twice, before some more g chord and D chord, and then the 

end-of-chorus-riff:



e------------------------------

B------------------------------

G---2gl4-4-----2-2gl4gl2-0---0-

D---4gl5-5-----4-4gl5gl4-0-2-0-

A------------------------------

E------------------------------

This riff I'm not so sure about.. The glissandos are right, but I think there's

supposed to be some more up'n'down..



Keef of course plays the thing differently on the second verse, but I've never

bothered to do that.. All the parts that lead up to a different chord can be

changed around and altered, and I think that it's mainly this Keith R. does.



A final remark: This is of course not correct, since Keith plays this in open-G-

tuning (d-B-G-D-G WITHOUT the 6th string).



If there is enough interest, I can dig out the solo too..

Hi,



This one really sounds best played in open-G tuning, this is 

(more or less) how I play it.



So, here it is...





               H O N K Y  T O N K  W O M A N 

               =============================

             T H E  R O L L I N G  S T O N E S



               

 For open-G tuning: tune down E-high to D, tune down A to G.

 Now it is -GDGBD low to high.



                                                                   G

I met a gin-soaked barroom queen in Memphis, 
    A                B              E
She tried to take me upstairs for a ride. 
         A                               D
The lady had to heave me across her shoulder. 
      A                  E                A
Now I just can't seem to drink you off my mind

CHORUS
A          E         A      
She's a ho-onky-tonk woman.
                  E                      A
Give me, give me, give me the honky-tonk blues.
A  E         A
Ho-onky-tonk women. [riff]
                  E                      A
Give me, give me, give me the honky-tonk blues.

I met a divorcee in New York City;
I had to put up some kind of a fight.
The lady went and covered me up in roses;
she blew my nose and then she blue my mind.

CHORUS

[Additional verse to begin 'Country Honk': 
'Sitting in a bar, tipping a jar in Jackson,
And on the street the Summer sun it shines.
There's many a barroom queen I've had in Jackson.
But I just can't seem to drink you off my mind. It's those..'

OK for this one you need to learn the open G tuning

  - it was Keith Richards favourite tuning

From low to high it is :  D G D G B D


so tune both Es down to D and tune the A down to a G and you've got it




Most of the song can then be played using very simple shapes :


 DGDGBD   DGDGBD    DGDGBD    DGDGBD    DGDGBD
 000000   555555    557565    222222    777777

   G        C         F/C       A         D


 DGDGBD   DGDGBD 
 779787   002000

   G/D      G6


I can't remember all the words, but try this :

G                           C   F/C  C
I met her at a ............


G                      A            D     G/D  D
She said she wants to take me for a ride


G                             C  F/C  C
.........................................


G         D      G


Chorus :


G  G6  G  G6     D    G/D  D   G
Hon   -           - key Tonk   Women

G  G6  G  G6     D    G/D  D             G
Give me Give me  Give me the honkey tonk blues



There's quite a scope for using variations on these shapes, but this
 should give you the basic sound
