I'm not real sure about that. It's the catchy
litte intro riff and it's been giving me fits.

I'm sure about this part here.  Whenever
Gtr 2 changes chords, so does Gtr 1 playing the
arpeggioed major chords here. Then fill Riff A chord diagramA augmentedA
at the end.

This is a very weak solo attempt. It sounds
decent, though, and most people you play for
probably won't notice if you play quickly enough.

Fills:

After the first chorus:

Gtr 1:
Fill A:
e|-------------------------------|
A chord diagramBB|-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13/---|
A chord diagramG+G|-------------------------------|
A chord diagramD MajorD|-------------------------------|
A chord diagramA augmentedA|-------------------------------|
A chord diagramE MajorE|-------------------------------|

During the third verse (head honcho) fill:

Gtr 3: acoustic
The exact strumming is hard to figure out, so I left
that to you, but the chords are:
A chord diagramG+G major, A chord diagramA augmentedA major, A chord diagramFF major (Barre A chord diagramFF major).

Gtr 4: clean w/delay:
e|-----------------|
A chord diagramBB|-7h8h9p8p7-------|
A chord diagramG+G|-----------------|
A chord diagramD MajorD|-----------------|
A chord diagramA augmentedA|-----------------|
A chord diagramE MajorE|-----------------|
Actually, a synth plays this, but this is pretty close.

Fill Gtr 3 during the 3rd chorus at:
A chord diagramA augmentedA barred, A chord diagramFF barred, A chord diagramG+G barred.

That's my attempt at tabbing this. Corrections, comments,
death threats, pledges of love, money, can all be sent
