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 
Hit each chord form on the beat, hold the last one for two beats 
Then on the A7 drop down to this 
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)

Written by Mick Jagger/Keith Richards
