"I'll take you down a notch, pogo stick"

 

Judging from the guitar Josh Homme uses, this song is in E Standard tuning, but I did it

C , so keep that in mind.

 

Guitar Tuning:

C-F-A#-D#-G-C

 

(*note*I'm gonna try to put each line he sings on the correct chord, but it may be a

off here and there. If it goes past the guitar tab then assume it's within the same phrase.)
