Living Colour - Which Way To America tab

Great funky kind of song from the late '80s from the album 'Vivid'
standard tuning
rhythm is going to be the hardest thing to get to grips with on this song
especially just after a break, there's a tricky rhythm that I haven't quite
managed to work out yet so it'll be quite a vague outline of it.
anyway, enjoy...

I have absolutely no idea about the solo, but I know the rhythm guitar plays the same chords as the ending of the 2nd chorus. then.... "where's my picket fence? my long, tall glass of lemonade? where's my vcr, my stereo my tv show?" x2 with no guitar just drums
then play the Chorus, but the first riff x4 and then the second ending of the chorus again with the lead guitar soloing over the top. and that's all. great song though, lyrics below. any questions? _____________________________ Lyrics (V. Reid): I look at the T.V. Your America's doing well I look out the window My America's catching hell I just want to know, which way do I go to get to your America? I just want to know, which way do I go to get to your America? I change the channel Your America's doing fine I read the headlines My America's doing time I just want to know, which way do I go to get to your America? I just want to know, which way do I go to get to your America? Go west young, go west young man (I think these 2 parts are sung simultaneously) Don't want to crossover But how do I keep from going under? Where's my picket fence? My long, tall glass of lemonade? Where's my VCR, my stereo, my tv show? I look at the TV I don't see your America I look out the window I don't see your America I, want to know, how to get, to your America I, want to know, how to get, to your America
