Tuning: DADDAD Capo: 2 There are three parts to playing this song, which I will letter throughought the song. Part A)Intro/Chorus riff: (i=barre with index finger r=barre with ring finger) ---------------------------- ---------------------------- ---------------------------- --3--5--3--0--0--5--3--0-0-- --3--5--3--0--0--5--3--0-0-- --3--5--3--0--0--5--3--0-0-- i r i r i Part B) Verse riff: Patty plays the verses with her middle finger barring the lowest four strings at the 12th fret. I know that's kind of difficult to do, especially with a capo on the second fret, but you can also play the verses just strumming the strings open, it won't sound quite the but it will be the same notes. While she's playing the verses, she does this in between phrases: (m=barre with middle finger i=barre with index finger) --0---0---0---0---0--- --0---0---0---0---0--- --12--12--12--10--12-- --12--12--12--10--12-- --12--12--12--10--12-- --12--12--12--10--12-- m m m i m If you're playing the song with the strings open, you can get the same effect by doing this: --0--0--0--0--0-- --0--0--0--0--0-- --0--0--0--0--0-- --0--0--0--3--0-- --0--0--0--3--0-- --0--0--0--0--0-- Part C) Bridge riff: This is mostly just a couple of rapid strums followed by a pause while each line is sung. -0-----------------------0--0----------------------------0--0-------------- -0-----------------------0--0----------------------------0--0-------------- -0-----------------------3--0----------------------------3--0-------------- -0-----------------------3--0----------------------------3--0-------------- -0-----------------------3--0----------------------------3--0-------------- -0-----------------------3--0----------------------------3--0-------------- black boys in the dungeons, picking out all the red ones . . . etc Intro: (A) (B)One of the dead boys, he looked like Opie (B)He looked like Opie, one of the dead boys (B)Grandpa gave him, a cup of cocoa (B)And rubbed his head for luck like he always did yeah (A) (B)All you need is a Coca-Cola (B)That's what it takes to get the job done (B)A bunch of boys, sitting in a van (B)With a bag of chips and a bloody can (A)Well, Father, do you know your son?
