Jim Carroll - People Who Died tab

Minor Correction to the previous tab by user Damnuit.
This is my first tab, so bear with me.
Love this song to death, and noticed just 1 minor error in the previously submitted tab.
Also, saw from the comments of that tab that the power chords should be played up a fret 
with standard tuning.
Dunno if my chord notation is correct, but wanted to show it is the standard power 
chord, just up a fret to closer match the song.

Intro:

    D#5
e|--------------|
B|--------------|
G|--8-8-8-8-----|
D|--6-6-6-6-----|
A|--6-6-6-6-----|
E|--------------|


Rest of the Song (is repeated):

    A#5       A#5       D#5       A#5       F5       A#5
e|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------88888888-----------11111111----------|
D|--88888888-88888888-88888888-88888888--11111111-88888888-|
A|--88888888-88888888-66666666-88888888--88888888-88888888-|
E|--66666666-66666666----------66666666-----------66666666-|


*For sake of legibility, F5 is listed with 1's instead of 10's, to make the tab look cleaner.
**I play this with double down strokes, with an accent on the first downstroke, but I'm 
sure a fast alternate pick would work as well.
***The intro is played in a set of 4, all other strums are in sets of 8
(with a double set of 8 at the beginning of the pattern)



Teddy sniffing glue, he was 12 years old
Fell from the roof on East Two-nine
Cathy was 11 when she pulled the plug
On 26 reds and a bottle of wine
Bobby got leukemia, 14 years old
He looked like 65 when he died
He was a friend of mine

Chorus
Those are people who died, died  X4
They were all my friends, and they died

G-berg and Georgie let their gimmicks go rotten
So they died of hepatitis in upper Manhattan
Sly in Vietnam took a bullet in the head
Bobby OD'd on Drano on the night that he was wed
They were two more friends of mine
Two more friends that died
(Chorus)

Mary took a dry dive from a hotel room
Bobby hung himself from a cell in the tombs
Judy jumped in front of a subway train
Eddie got slit in the jugular vein
And Eddie, I miss you more than all the others
And I salute you brother
(Chorus)

Herbie pushed Tony from the Boys' Club roof
Tony thought that his rage was just some goof
But Herbie sure gave Tony some bitchen proof
"Hey," Herbie said, "Tony, can you fly?"
But Tony couldn't fly, Tony died
(Chorus)

Brian got busted on a narco rap
He beat the rap by rattin' on some bikers
He said, "Hey, I know it's dangerous, but it sure beats Riker's"
But the next day he got offed by the very same bikers
(Chorus)

Teddy sniffing glue, he was 12 years old
Fell from the roof on East Two-nine
Cathy was 11 when she pulled the plug
On 26 reds and a bottle of wine
Bobby got leukemia, 14 years old
He looked like 65 when he died
He was a friend of mine
(Chorus)

G-berg and Georgie let their gimmicks go rotten
So they died of hepatitis in upper Manhattan
Sly in Vietnam took a bullet in the head
Bobby OD'd on Drano on the night that he was wed
They were two more friends of mine
I miss 'em, they died
(Chorus)

Mary took a dry dive from a hotel room
Bobby hung himself from a cell in the tombs
Judy jumped in front of a subway train
Eddie got slit in the jugular vein
And Eddie, I miss you more than all the others
This song is for you my brother
(Chorus)
