Tabbed by: Kent

I don't know where they get their guitarists, but whoever they got for this album, made this song:

Intro: quiet wah type thing

hit a bunch of high e's on the 12th fret after "old ham radio" I plagiarized the bridge from some one else's tab: " [Bm7]No marigolds in the promised [CMaj7] land, [C]There's a hole in the [G] ground where they[D]used to grow [Bm7]Any man left on the[CMaj7] Rio Grande [Em7]Is the[D]king of the world as far as[A]I know " I think I prefer D/F# instead of Bm7 here, not that it really matters much
