Hey JS.
Welcome to Weenie Campbell.
I'm assuming you've already Googled <"Ray Charles" tabs> and such. Try posting a query on the IGS forum. There's a guy there, Corndog, who's pretty into Ray and may be able to help you out. In fact use the search function there for "Ray Charles" and see what you get first.
All for now.

  Thanks, I have written to Corndog several times. Things
by Ray Charles are so rare to find. He was such a fabulous
entertainer that it looks like many people would be tabbing
his works. If I was younger, I would. If you ever hear of anything
in the area of Ray Charles, please let me know.

I've worked on Paul Geremia's great version of Drown In My Own Tears in the past. Tremendous fun to play but I'd never try tabbing it (not that I'd tab anything, but definitely not this!). Too much work, too many damn notes! That said, it was easier than it sounds to figure out a lot of the arrangement by ear and it was a great exercise for me in putting ear training to work. Somehow, perhaps because the harmonies are more modern, they seemed easier to hear than some quirky country blues, even if chordally it's more complex than most things one comes across playing country blues. Got a few tips on playing it from Paul as well at Port Townsend.
