comments & questions:

I've seen one tab for this song...and it's quite wrong,
so I'm gonna do this right.

Main riff:


Riff x2
I need your confidence, need to know your mine
When it gets right down to the killing time
I know your heart is bad, but it's all I've ever had
We can live our lives on this righteous crime

(Play a freestyle version of the main riff:)
I got kicked when I was down and a sailor took my girl to town
then she licked my wounds with the sea dog's salt
I drank a half a bottle of jack, swore I'd never take you back
by the bottle's end I was on that phone.

A#            C         A
What you call compromise I don't understand
A#            C         A              C
What you call compromise---I don't understand

D                     F  G
How do you walk away?
D                     F  G
How do you walk away?
D                                      F       G
Oh walk away from a woman that gone and done you wrong?

For the first part of the solo, use this scale
E --------------------------10-13-|
B ---------------------10-13------|
G ----------------10-12-----------|
D -----------10-12----------------|
A ------10-12---------------------|
E -10-13--------------------------|
The second half is basically riff 2 with a few frills.
