Guitar tabs with lyrics

Album:		The Fundamental Elements of Southtown
Tabbed by:	Tim Millard (millartj@wilkes1.wilkes.edu)

Tuning:	Drop A chord diagramD MajorD (DADGBE)

All of the existing tabs of this song were either slightly off or WAY
off.  This is how I play the song, and it matches up with the CD version
(IMHO).  It also has all of the parts of the song, for that added bonus.

The timings aren't perfect, so listen to the song to get the right
timings.  See below for song progressions.

Finally, distortion is a MUST for this song!

Key:

~   = let ring
(b) = bend slightly (about half a step)
/   = slide
X   = palm mute


Intro (with some sort of wind effect):

Solo (comes in after the break's been played twice):

This comes in rather faint, because of the vocals and the effects.  If you
listen to the song closely, you can hear it.  Play this over the break,
after it's been played twice.
