___________________________________________________________________

 

For a guitarist, this song should be easy. It's sound damn close too, especially

if you have a friend who can play the accordian!

 

 

INTRO: Some techno thing transcribed for guitar

Virginia was a "lot lizard" from F.L.A.

She had a compound fracture in the "trunk"

It started when she ran away

 

B D

Thumbs out on the interstate

 

("Bb, F" pattern x4)

She hitched a ride to misery

 

 

"Mr. Whirly" had a catastrophic incident

He fell into the city by the bay

He liquidated his estate

 

B D

Now he sleeps upon the Haight

 

("Bb, F" pattern x4)

Panhandling misery

 

 

PRE-CHORUS: No guitar, an accordian takes over

 

 

He's gonna get high

When he's low

The fire burns from better days

and she screams why

I said I don't know

The catastrophic hymns from yesterday of misery

 

 

VERSE 2: There's really no guitar here. Accordians and such are used instead.

You could use the Verse pattern from above here, but it's not nessicary.

 

 

Vinnie was a hustler out of Amsterdam

He ran the drug cartel in "tinseltown"

The found him in a Cadillac

B D

Bludgeoned with a baseball bat

In the name of misery

 

 

Gina hit the road to New York City

Mysteriously the night Vinne Croaked

She stopped in Vegas to elope

B D

With Virginia and the dope

And kissed the bride eternally

 

 

PRE-CHORUS: No guitar here

 

And they're gonna get high when they're low

The fire burns from better days

And he screamed why

I said I don't know

The catastrophic hymns of yesterday of misery

 

 

BRIDGE:

 

 

Hell hounds on your trail now once again..boy

It's groping on your leg until it sleeps

The emptiness will fill your soul with sorrow

Because it's now what you make..it's what you leave

 

 

[INTERLUDE]

 

(Accordian Solo)

 

GUITAR SOLO: Doesnt sound like a guitar, but it's a cool, "Godfatherly" sort of sound

so I tabbed it out. This is pretty close. Just figure out the # of strokes for

yourself. It should be pretty easy.
