Subject: Correction to "Bad Reputation" Freedy Johnston

Someone pointed out a lyric mistake in my original post.  I posted a
correction, but didn't see the correction make it to any of the mirrors.  So
I'm dropping this note.  I've also added chords to the rest of the lyrics to
make it easier for some to follow.  Enjoy.
