         (from the 1987 Geffen album PERMANENT VACATION)

riff D and A:

E --2-2-2-2---------|-------------------|--2-2-2-2-----------B --3-3-3-3---------|----2-2-0-2-2-0-2--|--3-3-3-3-----------G --2-2-2-2---------|----2-2-0-2-2-0-2--|--2-2-2-2-----------D --0-0-0-0---------|----2-2-0-2-2-0-2--|--0-0-0-0-----------A ------------------|----0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|--------------------E -----------0-2-3--|--4----------------|-----------0-2-3----
E ---------------------------------------------B ----2-2-0-2----------------------------------G ----2-2-0-2----------------------------------D ----2-2-0-2----------------------------------A ----0-0-0-0----------------------------------E --4------------------------------------------
It's repeated for every verse with the following change at the end of the phrase (or you can always power chord it for that extra "oomph"): C D A
E --0------2--------------|--------------------B --1------3--------------|-------2-2-0-2------G --0------2--------------|-------2-2-0-2------D --2------0--------------|-------2-2-0-2------A --3---------------------|-------0-0-0-0------E ---------------0--2--3--|--4-----------------
Yeah, yeah I got to get a-way The bridge is another simple pattern of open chords: C G F C
E ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--3--3--3--3-----1-1-1---0------B ----1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--0--0--0--0-----1-1-1---1------G ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-----2-2-2---0------D ----2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--0--0--0--0-----3-3-3---2------A ----3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--2--2--2--2-----3-3-3---3------E ----------------------------3--3--3--3-----1-1-1----------
I really need it really really need it San Tro-pez This repeats four times, and the fourth time ends on an B: C G F B
E ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--3--3--3--3-----1-1-1----------B ----1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--0--0--0--0-----1-1-1---4------G ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-----2-2-2---4------D ----2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--0--0--0--0-----3-3-3---4------A ----3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--2--2--2--2-----3-3-3---2------E ----------------------------3--3--3--3-----1-1-1----------
really need it man I got to get a -way The solos continue over this rhythmic pattern (which may well be a combination of the bass and rhythm guitar parts, but this is the way I do it, and it sounds fine when played along with the CD): B A B D Db C B A B
E -----------------------------------------------B ---4---2---4----7-7-7-7-7-7-6--5--4--2--4------G ---4---2---4----7-7-7-7-7-7-6--5--4--2--4------D ---4---2---4----7-7-7-7-7-7-6--5--4--2--4------A ---2---0---2----5-5-5-5-5-5-4--3--2--0--2------E -----------------------------------------------
During the second solo, with the harmonica, drop the Db and C chords and just riff on the A, B, and D.
