Title: Hitchin' A Ride

Band: Green Day

Album: Nimrod

Music by Green Day

 

Okay, I had my guitar tuned differently and I found this easier way to play

"Hitchin A Ride".

 

Tune it like this: DADGBE

 

Intro: Play this twice for intro

D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8

A|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8

D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8

 

Play that over and over for the verses.

 

Verse 1:

 

Hey mister, where are you headed?

Are you in a hurry?

I need a lift to happy hour,

say oh no!

Do you break for distilled spirits?

I need a break as well.

The well that inebriates the guilt.

1, 2. 1, 2, 3, 4.

 

D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8 Play 4 times with lots of

A|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8 distortion. On last time leave

D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8 out 5-5-7-8.

 

Verse 2:

Cold turkeys gettin stale.

Tonight I'm eatin crow.

Fermented salmonella,

poison oak, no!

There's a drought at The Fountain of Youth,

And now I'm dehydrating.

My tongue in swelling up, I say

1,2. 1,2,3,4!

 

D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8 Play 4 times with lots of

A|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8 distortion.

D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8

 

Chorus:

 

D|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-5-5

A|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-5-5

D|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-5-5

Troubled times you know I cannot lie

 

D|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--

A|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--

D|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--

I'm off the wagon and I'm hitchin' a ride.

 

Bridge: (Play same as verses.)

 

There's a drought at the fountain of youth

and now I'm dehydrating.

My tongue is swelling up I say.......(don't play here)

D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8 Play that 8x

A|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8 On last one leave out 5-5-7-8 and

 

D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8 Billie Joe says some kinda jibberish.

No, no way! Hitchin a ride!

(I think thats what they say)
