The Spider and the Fly by the Rolling Stones 
from the album, ^Stripped^, 1996. 
Words and music by M. Jagger and K. Richards(whoever they are) 
transcribed and submitted by Vance Augustine 
 
 
The song is pretty simple. It^s your basic 3 chord blues. What really 
makes the song is the 
little walking riff they do with the guitars. On every E7 chord play it 
like this 
 
E--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0- 
B--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0- 
G--1---------2----------4------------2----------1----------2----------4- 
D--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0- 
A--2---------4----------5------------4----------2----------4----------5- 
E--0---------0----------0------------0----------0----------0----------0- 
 
Hit each chord form on the beat, hold the last one for two beats 
 
Then on the A7 drop down to this 
 
E--0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0-- 
B--2----------3----------5----------3----------2----------3----------5-- 
G--0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0-- 
D--2----------4----------5----------4----------2----------4----------5-- 
A--0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0----------0-- 
E--x----------x----------x----------x----------x----------x----------x-
Put it all together and it goes like this: (intro) E7 riff twice E7 riff Sittin^ thinkin^ sinkin^ drinkin^ E7 riff Wondering what I^ll do when I^m thru tonight A7 riff Smokin^ mopin^ maybe just hopin^ E7 riff Some little girl will pass on by B7 A7 I don^t wanna be alone But I love my girl at home E7 riff C7 B7 I remember what she said E7 riff She said, ^My, my, my don^t tell lies! E7 riff Keep fidelity in your head! A7 riff My, my, my, Don^t tell lies E7 riff When you^ve done your show hit the bed B7 A7 Don^t say ^Hi^, like a spider to a fly E7 riff C7 B7 Jump right ahead and your dead! Sit up, fed up, low down, go round Down to the bar at the place I^m at Sittin^, drinkin^, superficially thinkin^ about the rinsed out blonde on my left and then I said ^Hi^, like a spider to a fly Remembering what my little girl said (harmonica solo) she was spiffy, shifty she looked about fifty I would have run away but I was on my own She told me later she was a machine operator she said she liked the way I held the microphone I said, ^My, my, my, like a spider to a fly Jump right ahead in my web!^ (guitar solo and end)
