That's a hard one to find or pinpoint. I always thought the verse of "Rags & Bones" sounded like the guitar riff / chorus of "Life in the Fast Lane" when I was a teenager. Now, I feel like I hear / learn songs all the time with similar licks or riffs. "Rags..." is great in its simplicity. It's just a straight up blues scale riff.

I just heard another tune that sounded so much like Rags and Bones. It was by soul singer Joe Tex. Not sure what the song was.

I´m back, here´s a song with the Rags & Bones bassline in it:

It is not the "rather old" blues song I mentioned.

Also the meters use the same pattern in "People say", different rhythm though, skip to the lick around 2:57

Found another song with the rags and bones bassline, it seems it is quite a common line.

Pazant Bros. & Beaufort Express - Chick A Boom - 1973

Bassline comes in at 0:17
