The Raconteurs - Consolers Of The Lonely tab

This is a corrected tab from multiple other version based on the live performance 
by The Raconteurs to get the solo octave right as well as good lead guitar for all sections.  

I recommend something close to these basic amp and guitar settings: 
Gain: 10
Volume: whatever
Overdrive on
Treble: 9
Mid: 6
Bass: 4
Reverb: 8

Drums only for 2-3 measures (can always tap on muted strings to keep your beat and 
there's a muted slide somewhere in there for accent)

LYRICS AND SETUP:
(Daddy, will you tell me the story about the chicken? hahahahaha...)
(ahahahaha...
ahahaha
Let's double track that...)

INTRO

PRE-VERSE

VERSE
Haven't seen the sun in weeks
My skin is getting pale
Haven't got a mind left to speak
And I'm skinny as a rail

Lightbulbs are getting dim
My interests are starting to wane
I'm told it's everything a man could want
And I shouldn't complain

Conversations getting dull
There's a constant buzzing in my ears
Sense of humor's void and null
And I'm bored to tears

PRE-CHORUS
I'm bored to tears, yeah...
I'm bored to tears, yeah...

CHORUS
If you're looking for an accomplice
A confederate, somebody that's helpless
You're gonna find, find yourself alone

If you're looking for cut-throat
Singing above note, looking for a scapegoat
You're gonna find, find yourself alone

Looking for sympathy
I can get you something
Something good, something good to eat

VERSE
Haven't had a decent meal
My brain is fried
Haven't slept a wink for real
My tongue is tied

Lightbulbs are getting dim
My interests are starting to wane
I'm told it's everything a man could want
And I shouldn't complain

Conversations getting dull
There's a constant ringing in my ears
Sense of humor's void and null
And I'm bored to tears

PRE-CHORUS
I'm bored to tears, yeah...
I'm bored to tears, yeah...

SOLO (ending of bass intro to solo)
Ah Ah Ah Ah Ahhh....
