Nofx - Mattersville tab

This is my first tab/chord.  I wanted to play some NoFX songs 
but they're either all tabs or they're for two guitar parts.
I made a chord version of mattersville and it sounds really
good on an acoustic too; thats what I wrote the chords with.
I'm not sure what the opening chord is but I think it's a high
E.  Also the chord Mike drops to from the 3rd note in the chorus (G) 
in the song I am not sure what it is, but I think its an F or F#, 
I play D it sounds good alone but way off if playing w/ the song.

Anyway, any questions or comments can be sent to me at
