I haven't bothered with the electric guitar parts, but they're not critical
to the song anyway.

Verse: (play main riff) Don't bother me I ain't got time for your misery It's not that I'm too busy It's just that I'm waiting for the I'm waiting for the *(start End Verse Riff here) I'm waiting for the world to find somebody else To deal with all the scum (back into Main Riff) I'm doing fine In my green chair Watching Rush and drinking a beer What's that he just said something funny He's waiting for the *(start End Verse Riff) He's waiting for the world to find somebody else To deal with all the scum Bridge: Am D Em What ever happened to the way it was G The way it was Am D Em What ever happened to my way G My way B C D My way This part is a little tricky, because you want to transition back into fingerpicking from the chords (at least if you're playing it with only one guitar). During the last three chords over "My way" (B C D) the following part is also picked.

(play main riff) Don't make a sound There's someone at the door They're probably pushing Freedom of whatever it is today Be quiet and hope they go away We're waiting for the We're waiting for the world to find somebody else To deal with all the scum End TAB This is just some extra stuff that gets thrown in as the chorus is repeated over and over again at the end of the song. There's a high guitar part that gets layered in near the end, and while I can't make out most of it, this is at least part of it.
