The song starts out with 6 bars of a Call & Response riff between a catty blues lick and some rhythmic hits supported the band. The lick in the intro is actually played by the rhythm guitar and the lead guitar doesn't come in until the 3rd time it's repeated. As a listener you'd expect the riff to be repeated a fourth time, so the verse catches you by surprise when it already comes in after the three repeats. This is a great arranging tool to use.
