    Subterrainian Homesick Blues structure id please

    I found this tab for the song so i know the chords and can play the song, it is rather easy. But I can't figure out the structure. It seems almost like a 12 bar blues but that doesn't fit in a few places. So I am asking the genusis' of UU if they have any idea or if i am just an idiot. thanks.

    As any "hitchhikers guide" fan can tell you. the secret to flying is the ability to throw yourself at the ground and miss. Just thought I'd share. (they're my favorite books, I'm reading them again for the 5th time.)
