Green Day - Macys Day Parade tab

Macy's Day Parade by Green Day

This is probably the most complete tab you'll find anywhere.
Like a lot of musicians, I'm really lazy, so I just tabbed out rhythm slashes.
Change rhythm where you see "Use Rhythm ..." whatever.
I think it's pretty straight forward, but that may be just me...
Have fun!

VERSE 1
 B
    Today's a Macy's Day Parade
     G#m
 The night of the living dead is on its way
 E5                       F#5       B
    With the credit report for duty call

(Drums Enter)
 B
    It's a lifetime guarantee
 G#m
 Stuffed in a coffin 10% more free
 E5               F#5             B
    Red light special at the mausoleum

PRECHORUS
 E5
    Give me something that I need
 F#5                           E5
    Satisfaction guaranteed to you
 
 What's the consolation prize?
 F#5                        B
    Economy sized dreams of hope

VERSE 2
 B
    When I was a kid I thought
   G#m
 I wanted all the things that I haven't got
 E5              F#5              B
    Oh, but I learned the hardest way

 B
    Then I realized what it took 
    G#m
 To tell the difference between thieves and crooks
 E5            F#5               B
    When all along it was me and you
