VERSE:

- I threw in a couple of lines of tab for the verse so you can see some of the
  licks Marty plays. Once you master this you can start improvising.

- The bass line is key to the song.  He often just plays the bass notes.

- Notice I had to stretch the spacing on the last measure of the 2nd line of tab. 
  There were too many notes to fit in and still keep the tab correct.  Just 
  concentrate on keeping the timing the same between ^ symbols.

- Occasionally you will see the "x" symbol and notes on the same line.  Here 
  you need to slap the strings (with side of palm) at the same time you strum 
  the notes.  Takes awhile to get it down, but once you do it sounds great. 

                                                  (sometimes throws in D5)

Em/G/D/Cadd9
Freedom came my way that night 

Em/G/D/Cadd9
just like a jet plane In and out of sight

Em/G/D/Cadd9
I was hauling ass at a million miles an hour

Em/G/D/Cadd9
wondering how hard I'd hit 

Em/G/D/Cadd9
When they came into the station

Em/G/D/Cadd9
they said I was bad beyond repair

Em/G/D/Cadd9
But I got no qualms with my situation

OUTRO:

- For this section concentrate on moving the bass notes.  The chord structure
  remains the same. The tab below is just for reference.  You can mix up the
  order of notes between the bass notes.

- I did not bother naming these chords, just called them C1,C2 etc..


C1        (0x4030)
C2        (3x4030)
C3        (X04030)
C4        (x34030)
