Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Standard



Ver 2 was pretty well done, but very incomplete. The main riff was off a little bit,
as were several other parts. Most notably, the solo wasn't completely tabbed and it
wasn't noted that there is a low E bass-line present in a few spots.

The main riff is a little tricky to get down, so I'll explain it in more detail here
The first five notes are pretty straight forward. I pick the D string with my thumb 
and the G string with my pointer finger. Then, I stroke down with my thumb hitting 
the low E in the process. I immediately stroke up on the E major chord, mute it. 
Then, with my thumb I stroke up quickly on open E A D strings and play the two
notes on the low E string. Then with my pointer finger nail I downstroke the 
E maj chord twice, muting after each stroke.

Intro:

  I got up this mornin'
  Put on my shoes
  Tied my shoes
  Went to the mirror
  I didn't comb my hair
  I made a move
  Didn't no what to do
  Tried to break and run
