Minutemen tabs for History lesson part two

Guitar tabs with lyrics

Someone requested minutemen.  Here's one.  I'm in the process of
writing down some others I know.

For anyone not familiar with minutemen, they were comtemporaries
of Husker Du, Meat Puppets, Black Flag, etc, on the SST label in
the early to mid '80s.  Guitar player D. Boon died in a car crash
in '85.  The two rmaining members reformed with a new guitarist
as fIRHOSE.

In light of D. Boon's death, this song is very sad.

Written by Mike Watt
Recorded by Minutemen on album "Double Nickles on the Dime" (SST)
