We Are 138 by The Misfits

Chords with lyrics

Band: Misfits
	CD: Collection II (It's probably on another CD but I'm not sure which)
	Written By: Glenn Danzig
	Tabbed and submitted By: Tennessee Grimes

There is a already a bass tab for this song which is correct, but the lines
were kind of screwed up, at least on my computer.  Also beginning guitarists
might not realize that the guitar chords are the same as the bass notes, so I
thought I'd make it a little clearer.  I also included the solo.  Use plenty
of distortion.


Hold this
chord for a while
   Chord diagramE MajorE  \/                    Chord diagramC majorC   Chord diagramD MajorD
g--9--------9---9---9---9---5---7---------|          <---------Figure 1

       We      are    ...

Repeat this riff without holding the first Chord diagramE MajorE chord.  This isn't the exact
number of Chord diagramE MajorE chords so listen to the CD.  Then do this:
    Chord diagramE MajorE   Chord diagramC majorC       Chord diagramD MajorD         Chord diagramE MajorE
d---9---5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-----9------------|     <------------Figure 2

    We arrrrrrrrrrrrrrre    ....

He's not screaming here it's just a long "are".  On the second Chord diagramE MajorE chord (which
comes on the 8 of 138) the tempo picks up a lot.  I think it is doubled.  The
picking is all quick downstrokes.  Figure 1 is repeated twice without vocals,
then Glenn comes in again and repeats the whole intro with the guitar faster.
At the end of this faster intro thing  substitute in "eyes of tiger" for the
long "we are 138".  That's the first verse, the next verse is different.  It
looks like this:

Verse 2:

Chord diagramE MajorE
Do you think we're robot clean, ....

Chord diagramE MajorE      Chord diagramC majorC            Chord diagramD MajorD               Chord diagramE MajorE
It is time to be an ...

Just play a lot of fast Chord diagramE MajorE chords for the first line.  For the second repeat
figure 2.  The next verse is the same for the guitar:

Chord diagramE MajorE
The pleasantries are gone We're ...

Chord diagramE MajorE      Chord diagramC majorC       Chord diagramD MajorD     Chord diagramE MajorE
In the eyes ..

Now comes the solo.  The rhythm guitar plays Chord diagramE MajorE under it:
                                                          b  b  b  b

The b stands for bend, and the number of times these notes are hit is not
exact so listen to the CD if you want to be exact.  Repeat the whole intro
twice, but with the faster tempo.  Then for the outro Glenn just yells 8, 8,
8, lots of times, the guitar chords get shorter, I think this is called
staccato or something.  The guitar repeats figure 1.  That's it.  It's really
an easy song, most people will probably be able to figure it out just given
that the chords are E, C, and D.  Send your corrections, info on raves in
