BEGIN THE BEGIN


{lick      G :  ------------0-2-0------|
           D(2) :  --0-h-2-h-4-------4-0--|  F# chord....}

F#                      A
Birdie in the hand for life's rich demand
       E                     F#       {lick}
The insurgency began and you missed it
F#                     A
I looked for it and I found it
                E                  F#    F#7
Miles Standish proud, congratulate me

     D
A philanderer's tie, a murderer's shoe

{same as before}
Life's rich demand creates supply in the hand
Of the powers, the only vote that matters
Silence means security silence means approval
On Zenith, on the TV, tiger run around the tree
Follow the leader, run and turn into butter

D
Let's begin again, begin the begin
F#                       A
Let's begin again like Martin Luther Zen
      E               F#           {lick}
The mythology begins the begin
F#
Answer me a question I can't itemize
                 A
I can't think clearly, look to me for reason
                             E                  F#   F#7
It's not there, I can't even rhyme in the begin

     D
A philanderer's tie, a murderer's shoe
F                             G {keys walkdown}   C#
Example: the finest example is you

Birdie in the hand for life's rich demand
The insurgency began and you missed it
I looked for it and I found it
Miles Standish proud, congratulate me

     D
A philanderer's tie, a murderer's shoe
F            G      F        G
Let's begin again begin the begin
F           G     F      G
Let's begin again

Great chords for this song - really fun to play. Unfortunately, this is apparently the only version of this song on the entire web - can't find another one and I think the riff is way off (not nearly enough notes provided).

I've been trying to work it out, and to find a cleaner way to play it, since it is really fast and screws up the song if you butcher it.

Here's what I have so far, like me know if you see improvements.

Intro/Verse Lead-in Riff:
. |1 & a 2 & a 3 & a 4 & a |1
E:|*-0h2h4/5-6/7-5--\4-0---|*

* = F# chords/notes on both ends

I want to post or [tab]
