Top o' the morning to ye!  This is my first tab I've submitted; it's a
ridiculously simple song by the greatest, most high-energy band ever.  As such,
it must be played furiously (except for a few parts for contrast) with lightning
quick down-up strumming.  I'll add a few notes on dynamics, but this is quite a
simple song.  Enjoy it!

I must head for the Chinas    Pray to God I don’t drown


CHORUS X3

End on C chord


That's the whole song.  Ideally you'd have drums, fiddle, and mandolin to fill
out the sound a bit, but this is a wonderful song as it is.  Remember to pick up
the pace for the ending choruses, and have fun with it!
