Ry Cooder is one of the musicians core to modern blues and roots music, and while I have known of him for quite some time, I haven't spent much time with it.
Recently I pulled out his version of the gospel tune "Jesus on the Mainline". I would expect it to be a simple three-chord song — I IV and V — and when I search for chord sheets, that's what I see.
But what I hear is different. There's the I and IV — A and D in this case — but I do not hear the V. I hear F#m, the vi chord. It comes at the "call" of "call him up and tell him what you want".
There are other Ry versions online, and they're consistent. I haven't spent time with many other versions, but I would guess most use the V. Are my ears right about the version in question? Or are the tab sites?
