Hope this proves of some use to you. It may be a bit difficult to follow, in
which case I apologise in advance, but it shouldn't be too bad. I'm new at
TABbing stuff and it's more difficult than it looks!! If you know the song well
enough then you should be able to follow the tab as you listen to it and figure
it out from there. The fundamentals are there though and it shouldn't take too
much work on your part to figure it out.

Faster Pussycat
House of Pain
:From the album Wake me When it's Over.

This is the intro and is played for the first four bars before going on to fig.2

The Words go :

It's a little past supper time
I'm still out on the porch step sittin' on my behind,
Waiting for you.
Wondrin' if everything's alright,
Moma said,"Come in boy, don't waste your time,"
I said,"I've got time. Well he'll be here soon."
Five years old and talkin' to myself.
Where were you? Where'd ya go? Daddy can't you tell?

Chorus.
~~~~~~~
I'm not tryin' to fake it, and I ain't the one to blame.
No, there's no one home in my house of pain.
I didn't write these pages and my script's been re-arranged.
No, there's no one home in my house of pain.

Wasn't I worth the time?
A boy needs a daddy like a dance to mime and all the time,
Ilooked up to you.
I paced my room a million times.
And all I ever got was one big line, the same old lie.
How could you?
Well I was eighteen and still talkin' to myself.
Where were you? Where'd ya go? Daddy can't ya tell?

If you want any other stuff from the first album I've figured pretty much of it
