This is a great song by Weird Al that you can find in the ECards Starring You on 
jibjab.com. The other two tabs on here for this song are in Drop-Db and Standard, but with 
major chords. But if you listen, they're just power chords. So here it is!

This is in Standard.

|=bar line
PH=pinch harmonic; close to the fretboard
b=bend a quarter step
/=slide up
PM=palm mute
\=slide down
1.=1st ending
2.=2nd ending

the notes in () are optional.
the PH is a seperate guitar.


Verses 1-3


Play (B5) 2nd time only

Cool part                              / 4th time
                                      2p0 6th time

Go back to the Verse.
Go to Verse 4 the 8th time.




Now go back to the Verse again.

Verse 4



Play the cool part 3 times


Have fun!

Charles Nelson Reilly was a mighty man,
The kind of man you'd never disrespect.
He stood eight foot tall, wore glasses,
And he had a third nipple on the back of his neck.
He ate his own weight in coal,
And excreted diamonds every day.
He could throw you down a flight of stairs,
But you still would love him anyway.
Yeah, you know you'd love him anyway, oh.

Charles Nelson Reilly won the Tour de France
With two flat tires and a missing chain.
He trained a rattlesnake to do his laundry.
I'm telling you the man was insane.
He could rip out your beating heart,
And show it to you right before you died.
Everyday he'd make the host of Match Game
Give him a piggyback ride.
Yeah, two hour piggyback ride - giddy up Gene!

A ninja warrior, master of disguise.
He could melt your brain with his laser beam eyes.
Oh yeah, oh yeah.
He had his very own line at the DMV.
He made sweet, sweet love to a manatee.
Oh yeah, oh yeah, that was something to see, I tell ya!

Charles Nelson Reilly sold his toenail clippings
As a potent aphrodisiac.
He ran a four minute mile blindfolded
With an engine block strapped to his back.
He could eat more frozen waffles
Than any other man I know.
Once he fell off the Chrysler building
And he barely even stubbed his toe.
Had a tiny little scratch on his toe, didn't even hurt!

Charles Nelson Reilly figured out Cold Fusion,
But he never ever told a soul.
I've seen the man unhinge his jaw,
And swallow a Volkswagen whole.
He'd bash your face in with a shovel
If you didn't treat him like a star.
'Cause you can spit in the wind and tug on Superman's cape,
But Lord knows you just don't mess around with CNR!

No, no, no!
Talkin' 'bout CNR!

Thanks for uploading! I thought the previous one's in Drop D sounded slightly weird but this in standard tuning sounds just like it.

Sounds ALMOST 100% accurate, the third verse riff, instead of:


Other than that, fantastic dude! 5*
