Can't get the one you love, have to use somebody else

I've got the blues, gonna pack my things and go
I've got the blues, gonna pack my things and go
Guess you don't love me, lovin' mister so and so

Sometimes I wonder why can your love be so cold

NOTE:  This is VERY rough and simplified.  Think of it as the "fake book" 
version.  I am sure it's played in Open E though.  There is a tab guitar 
book covering all of the Crossroads box set (which I don't have) that I 
know has this note for note.  If you want the real thing, buy the book.
