Dengue Fever - Sober Driver tab

Song: Sober Driver
Band: Dengue Fever

Great song, fun songóto sing and to playóalthough itís not all that well known.

Hereís what Iím hearing. It sounds 100% to me. Keep in mind, some parts are a bit tricky.


INTRO/INTERLUDE:
        |---------------------------------------|
        |-------10-------9------8-----7-----6---|
        |-------10-------9------8-----7-----6---|
        |-11h12----10h11---9h10---8h9---7h8-----|   x2
        |---------------------------------------|
        |---------------------------------------|




VERSE (listen for rhythm):
  (notes: SEGMENTS 1 & 2 played staccato. It means each note is very short.
   They are also somewhat palm-muted.
   SEGMENTS 3 & 4, meanwhile, are played more legato; they can ring.)

     SEGMENT 1:
        |---------------------------|
        |---------------------------|
        |--------9------------------|
        |-------10-----10-----------|     x4
        |-12---12---12----12-11-10--|
        |---------------------------|

     SEGMENT 2:
        |---------------------------|
        |---------------------------|
        |--------8------------------|
        |-------10-----10-----------|     x2
        |-12---12---12----12-11-10--|
        |---------------------------|

     SEGMENT 3:
        |-----------------------------------------------|
        |-----------------------------------------------|
        |-------10-------10-------10-------10-------10--|
        |----12-------12-------12-------12-------12-----|
        |-12-------12-------12-------12-------12--------|
        |-----------------------------------------------|

     SEGMENT 4:
        |--------------------------------------------|
        |--------------------------------------------|
        |-------10-------10--------9-------9-------9-|
        |----12-------12-------------12------12------|
        |-11-------11-------11----------11------11---|
        |--------------------------------------------|

Then play through VERSE a second time. All four segments are the exact same,
except SEGMENT 3. For the second time through (EACH time the verse is played), SEGMENT 2
plays like this:

        |------------------------------------------------|
        |------------------------------------------------|
        |-------10-------10-------10--12--14--12--10-----|
        |----12-------12-------12---------------------12-| (then onto SEGMENT 4)
        |-12-------12-------12---------------------------|
        |------------------------------------------------|




CHORUS:

   Am                         C                          F       E
   You call me up because Iím sober and you wanted me to drive
   Am                         C                      F      E
   Iím getting tired of being treated as just a free ride
   Am                            C                         F      E
   Iíve finally figured out that youíre just a thorn in my side
     (no chords)
      Thatís withered, dull and dry




Then VERSE (twice), then CHORUS again, then INTRO/INTERLUDE before VERSE run-
through (with no lyrics), and finally CHORUS once more.

End on Am.
