Lyrics

Hey mister, where you headed
Are you in a hurry?				(Verse 1)
Need a lift to happy hour
Say "Oh no"

Do you brake for distilled spirits
Need a break as well				(Verse 2)
The well the inebriates the guilt
1..2..1..2..3..4

Cold turkey's gettin stale
Tonight I'm eatin crow
Fermented salmonella				(Verse 3)
Poison oak, no

There's a drought at the fountain of youth
Now I'm dehydrating				(Verse 4)
My tongue is swelling up, I say
1..2..1..2..3..4

Troubled times
You know I cannot lie				(Chorus)
I'm off the wagon and I'm hitchin a ride

(Verse 4)(replace "1..2..1..2..3..4" with scream)
(Bridge)
(Chorus)

(Don't know where to go)
Hitchin' a ride					(End)

The main riff needs to be a semi-tone lower but then I can't work out the chorus.

dude the main riff sound really wrong,i mean the chords are right,but you definately play them a lot more. and i cant figure out how the chorus is at all. whoevers been giving this tab 5 stars is a ****ing reatard and should stop playing guitar immidiately for not noticing how wrong the main riff is.
