This song is very easy to play. The outro to this song is sort of a transition to Walk Me, so I've included it at the end (see my tab for Walk Around Me). Like with Walk Around the chords can be played as either powerchords or major chords, but major/minor chords better on an acoustic. You'll have to listen to the song to get the rhythm down, and in mind that the vocals are very fast (the first verse is over in about 22 seconds). interesting sidenote is that the main riff in this song is just the chords to Walk Around reversed. - = fast, little/no space between chords. Intro: E A E A E A Atom bombs and foreign tongues, E A till my face starts turnin' blue. E A Politics and talkin' shit, E A wrap it up, give it back to you. E A I said, "No No! That ain't right E A I can't sleep tonight." E A Stupid things have we done for sure E A Exasperating, well you gotta know, know, know, (hold for twice the amount of bars) G A I'm sorry for harshing your buzz. E A E A x2 [ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/r/riverboat-gamblers/79011.html ] E A Lights out! Why are you so sore? E A Bed time, like you I'm poor. E A If I say you win then will you go go go? E A You say you will, but do you gotta move so slow? G A I'm sorry for harshing your buzz. E A E A (1,2,3,4!) G#m I don't get you Am people, just leave me G#m alone...you say that you Am love me, but you hate my G#m home. I don't like him Am either, but he's just a G#m clone. You're acting like I Am put him there took him to lunch and then Am-G#m-Am-G#m-Am-G#m (fast) paid! Paid to watch you E A cryyy... E A It's alright! (that's alright) E A It's alright! (that's alright) E A It's alright! (that's alright) E A E It's alright! (that's alright) Calm Down! Outro (the slow bit, drums in background) A-A-A-E (fast, let the E sustain, wait measure) A-A-A-E... A-A-A-E... A-A-A-E, A-E, A-E-E-E-E then the song goes directly into Walk Around Me.
