What a tune.
 
Ok so there is 2 tabs already for this but this is my version with the 
corrections and bits missed out by the others. I've made this tab in a way 
so that any guitarist can learn this song no matter what level, to help 
learn this song it helps if you have the song on whilst trying to learn 
certain bits for timing etc.
 
 
Intro (Bass only)
 
 
Intro lyrics:
 
Running off over next doors garden before the hour is done
It's more a question of feeling than it is a question of fun
The confidence is the balaclava I'm sure you'll baffle 'em good
But the end in reek of salty cheeks and runny make up alone! Oh well...

Verse 1:
 
Lyrics:
 
Blood runs down the face of a boy bewildered and scorned
And you find yourself in a scurmage where you wish you'd never been born
An you tie to yourself to the tracks and there isn't no going back
And it's wrong wrong wrong but we'll do it anyway cause we love a bit  of 
trouble!

Verse 2:
 
Lyrics
 
Are you pulling her from a burning building or throwing her to the sharks?
You can only hope that the ending is as pleasurable as the start
The confidence is the balaclava I'm sure you'll baffle them straight
And it's wrong wrong wrong and she can hardly wait.

That's right, he won't let her out his sight
Now the shaggers perform and the daagers are drawn

Now the shaggers perform and the daagers are drawn
Who's the crooks in this....CRIME!?

Pretty good tab overall. Everything sounds right, but the guitar 1 verse is played differently. Not exactly sure, but that's how it looks in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhQGyg3oi5s.

I will update this tab soon as after seeing them live last time I noticed Jamie doesn't play the main riff in 5th chords he just slides to the 12th on the A constantly while Alex plays the main riff in single notes as I've tabbed it.

I want to post or [tab]
