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)

About the artist behind The Spider And The Fly Chords:

The Rolling Stones are an English band whose music was initially based on rhythm and blues and rock & roll. Formed in London and having their first success in the UK, they subsequently became popular in the US during the "British Invasion" in the early 1960s.[1]

The band formed in 1962 when original leader Brian Jones and pianist Ian Stewart were joined by singer Mick Jagger and guitarist Keith Richards, whose songwriting partnership later contributed to their taking the leadership role in the group. Bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts completed the early lineup. Ian Stewart was removed from the official lineup in 1963 but continued to work with the band as road manager and keyboardist until his death in 1985.

The band's early recordings were mainly covers of American blues and R&B songs. Their 1965 single "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" established the Rolling Stones as a premier rock and roll act.[2] Starting with their 1966 album Aftermath, the songs of Jagger and Richards, aided by the instrumental experimentation of Jones, expanded an always present stylistic flexibility. Jones died in 1969 shortly after being fired from the band and was replaced by Mick Taylor.[3] Taylor recorded five albums with The Rolling Stones before quitting in 1974. Former Faces guitarist Ronnie Wood stepped in and has been with the band ever since. Wyman left the Rolling Stones in 1993; bassist Darryl Jones, who is not an official band member, has worked with the group since 1994.

The Rolling Stones have released 22 studio albums in the UK (24 in the US), eight concert albums (nine in the US) and numerous compilations;[4][5] they have had 32 UK & US top-10 singles,[6] 43 UK & US top-10 albums between 1964 and 2008,[citation needed] and have sold more than 200 million albums worldwide.[7] 1971's Sticky Fingers began a string of eight consecutive studio albums at number one in the United States. In 1989 the Rolling Stones were inducted into the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2004 they were ranked number 4 in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[8] They are also ranked as the number 2 artists of all time on[9] Their latest studio album, A Bigger Bang, was released in 2005 and followed by the highest-grossing tour in history, which lasted into late summer 2007. During the 1969 American tour, tour manager Sam Cutler introduced them as "The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World",[10] a title which has remained. Their image of unkempt and surly youth is one that many musicians still emulate.[10]
