Guitar tabs with lyrics

Hey! My first tab.

   I saw a request for this tune a little while back, and
thought I would contribute to this newsgroup since I've been
pulling tab from it for quite some time... keep up the great
work guys!

   Since this is my first attempt at tabulation, I would
appreciate any comments, criticisms and/or style pointers.

   "Powerage" is my favorite AC/DC albums, and if anyone wants
I'll tab some of the other songs I know, including "Riff Raff"
and "Gone Shooting" (great tune!).

   I would also appreciate if someone would post the extro
to this song (the bluesy riff right at the end).  I've included
part of it with this tab, but it probably needs some work.
