Drop low E-string to a D

Chords:  B x244xx   D xx023x  A x0222x  Weird A x0210x  (Hit the chords=20
like power chords.  This ain't a ballad)

Notes:  This is a simple song after you figure out that Weird A (it's a=20
suspended deal but I haven't looked it up.)   The song pretty well runs=20
on the B-D-A-Asus? set for the majority of the song.  I believe each=20
line uses all four verse chords.

Chorus:  This is hazy part.  It's hard to make out the changes but the=20
chords are G-D-A or some variation thereof.   Your mission my fellow Hip=20
fans is to figure out the timing. (Actually you will have to do that for=20
the whole song I am just supplying the chords, but listening to the song=20
will be more than sufficient.)

One of the best parts is the heavy power chording late in the song. =20
This is accomplished by de-tuning your bottom E-string down to a D.  =20
This facilitates in the power chording.

I have "attempted" to tab out this section without timing.  A listen=20
will reveal all. The "xxxx" mean you palm mute/bang the strings without=20
making a note/scrape those strings.)   Play this part really loud and=20
angrily.  :)

Riff (late in the song and finishes it)A [10-8-10---xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-8-2-0-2-]D [10-8-10---xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-8-2-0-2-] (Dropped D)

I am absolutely dying for any tragically hip bootlegs...please! I=20 KNOW they are out there... B5 D5 A5 Funny A (x0210x) Tom Thompson came paddling past I'm pretty sure it was him And he spoke so softly in accordance With the growing of the dim=D4 Cause I think I'm ready I've been shaking all night long But my hands are steady."
