This 1960 blues performed by Jimmy Reed has been covered by many including Elvis Presley and B.B King (this latter sang it on the music of Billie Jean!).
The story of this famous tune is readable on Wikipedia here. The tab and audio here are about the version by Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead.
 
Throughout the decades they have given various versions on stage that we can now see on Youtube but my favorite one remains the one they recorded on their live album  Skull 'n Roses at Fillmore East on april 26 1971.

It was 4 years after the band illuminated the Summer of Love in San Francisco wtih Jefferson Airplane.

Jerry Garcia has electrified and slowed down Jimmy Reed's guitar and knits a new sound playing some sort of solo all along replying to the vocals. The intro is also interesting in that it is a duet between two guitars before the second starts the shuffling rhythm.

In the stage performance the tune consists of an intro , two sung verses, three instrumental verses ( one with harmonica, one with a guitar solo and one with harmonica again) and a last sung verse.  The tab shows :

1. the intro
2. the first sung verse
3. the second sung verse
4. the guitar solo verse
5. the last sung verse

The two instrumental verses implying an harmonica have been omitted, since of no particular interest in a guitar tab (and especially when Jerry Garcia keeps silent in the background !).

I tabbed 2 guitars and the bass.
In each verse the bars are numbered from 1 to 12 just for you to know where you are. You can hear the full mp3 demo of the tab here :
