Just picked this up on Youtube.

She's playing in Spanish tuning, key of A. Most likely open G capo at 2nd fret. Jo Ann is the guitarist.

It is based on Muddy Waters recording of the song, but she plays the signature lick on the 3rd and 4th strings rather than the bass strings. It is very simple to pick out, if you can play Roll and Tumble you should be able to figure this out without too much trouble.
