Ive looked around for some tabs for this song but none of them
seem to be right. So i thought id figure it all out and put the
song together the way i learnt it. And ill tell you all now,
this tab is 100% correct.

Just thought i may as well throw in the lyrics for anyone new to the song: And it's all over Sin in the ratty air I got suspended Suspended in the air I tried to kiss you But you were never there I went a-looking Found you everywhere Violent and lazy, barbershop sport Grass doesn't grow on a busy sidewalk And it's all over Sin in the ratty yard No, there's no pressure Force fed buisness cards I tried to kill him Tried to kill you rock-n-roll star Founding a bad trip Some corperate facade Violent and lazy, barbershop sport Grass doesn't grow on a busy sidewalk So now it's over Envy the ratty star Cause thats a winner Love those business car You're still pretending Still sending those Christmas cards And talking back there Waiting at the bar Violent and lazy, barbershop sport Grass doesn't grow on a busy sidewalk Violent and lazy, barbershop sport Grass doesn't grow on a busy sidewalk Violent and lazy, barbershop sport You'll have to work out the strumming pattern yourself. Just listen to it, heaps easy. But thats basically the whole song. And i promise you this is the right way to play it. There is also a second guitar that you can hear in some parts of the song that plays a few of the chords with some distortion on, but i wouldnt worry about that at all. If you have any questions at all, just email me at Id also like to thank a few people just randomly. Thanks to milly, joel, rhys, jared, simmo and jacky.
