From: Roger in Baltimore

Steve,

I'M SATISFIED
By Mississippi John Hurt
From Coffee Blues (Vanguard 19032), copyright notice

I'm satisfied, tickled too, old enough to marry you
I'm satisfied it's gonna bring you back
I'm satisfied, tickled too, old enough to marry you
I'm satisfied it's gonna bring you back

First in the country, then in the town, I'm a total shaker from my navel on down
I'm satisfied it's gonna bring you back
I'm satisfied, tickled too, old enough to marry you
I'm satisfied it's gonna bring you back

I pull my dress to my knees. (1) I give my too-ga-loo to who I please
I'm satisfied it's gonna bring you back
I'm satisfied, tickled too, old enough to marry you
I'm satisfied it's gonna bring you back

I'm satisfied, tickled too, old enough to marry you
I'm satisfied it's gonna bring you back
I'm satisfied, tickled too, old enough to marry you
I'm satisfied it's gonna bring you back
__________
Note (1): the speaker of this courtship song is obviously feminine

Very nice version in D shown on YouTube, with chords and fingering easily visible.

I'm pretty sure MJH does this in C, not D.

The tab posted yesterday looks about right to me, but I'm at work without my guitar and so can't check it out completely. I'm not so sure it's necessary to change from 4/4 to 2/4 time and back again.

This is one of my favorites. I've been playing it so long that I don't remember whether I learned it from tab (Stephan Grossman or some Oak Publications book), or from a person, or if I figured it out on my own after having absorbed enough different MJH key-of-C songs to recognize all the licks and bass runs, etc.

If I learn later on that the tab cited above differs too much from how I know the song, maybe I'll post a corrected version. Someday when I'm not busy and distracted.

In the vid, he's playing the C shape with a capo on fret two, which would make it D, so I guess you're both right.

There's a fab version - solo acoustic fingerstyle - by John Hiatt, on "Avalon Blues", the MJH tribute album Peter Case put together a few years back.

I didn't watch the YouTube vid before posting yesterday, since I have not audio and work. I just took a peek and the playe is indeed using the standard C "shapes," capoed up to D as you say.

I've taken a few peeks, still without sound, and found another fellow's performacne of the song, also with capo on 2d fret bringing C up to D.

Phew, thanks for that confirmation, PoppaG - I thought I might have been on dodgy ground there. Maybe I'm getting more confidence as a guitar player.

All I've got to do now is stop yacking and start trying to play the song.....
