Title: Runaway Boys
Band: The Stray Cats
Album: Built for Speed

One of the more popular songs among Stray Cats fans. If I'm correct,
this was their first single in the UK. The main sections of the song
are pretty easy. The solo can be challenging if you haven't played
a lot of Setzer. He opens up the solo with that famous pull off
lick in e on the 1st string. Listen for the changes. Strums
are not exact. Lets go!!!

Repeat song from MAIN RIFF:


That's it for another Cats song. The ending should be easy
to figure out. Just repeats some of the stuff already tabbed above.
I haven't figured out what to tab next but I'll tab something. Let
me know of any changes! Have fun!
