*NOTE: The tablature does not reflect accurately the duration of the notes. I'm approximating it as best I can because at least three notes are held for a few measures. *NOTE 2: If your guitar does not have 24 frets you can play the riff an octave lower as outlined below.

NOTE: You can choose to play the verse chords at other positions. I chose these specific fingers because they add the higher notes that might be played by another guitar. Here are alternate fingering suggestions: Dm (xx0132) or (x57765) F (x81010108) or (133211) C (x35553) or (x32010) Verse 1 Lyrics There goes Mary Riley With fire in her eyes And as she dances in the moonlight She drives me mild She had seven brothers And boy did they like to fight And I'm not much to look at But I'll muscle up tonight (OH!)
