               "Permanent Vacation" by Aerosmith
         (from the 1987 Geffen album PERMANENT VACATION)

riff D and A:

E --2-2-2-2---------|-------------------|--2-2-2-2-----------
B --3-3-3-3---------|----2-2-0-2-2-0-2--|--3-3-3-3-----------
G --2-2-2-2---------|----2-2-0-2-2-0-2--|--2-2-2-2-----------
D --0-0-0-0---------|----2-2-0-2-2-0-2--|--0-0-0-0-----------
A ------------------|----0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|--------------------
E -----------0-2-3--|--4----------------|-----------0-2-3----


E ---------------------------------------------
B ----2-2-0-2----------------------------------
G ----2-2-0-2----------------------------------
D ----2-2-0-2----------------------------------
A ----0-0-0-0----------------------------------
E --4------------------------------------------


It's repeated for every verse with the following change at the
end of the phrase (or you can always power chord it for that
extra "oomph"):

    C      D                      A

E --0------2--------------|--------------------
B --1------3--------------|-------2-2-0-2------
G --0------2--------------|-------2-2-0-2------
D --2------0--------------|-------2-2-0-2------
A --3---------------------|-------0-0-0-0------
E ---------------0--2--3--|--4-----------------

  Yeah,   yeah   I got to   get   a-way


The bridge is another simple pattern of open chords:

      C                       G              F       C

E ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--3--3--3--3-----1-1-1---0------
B ----1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--0--0--0--0-----1-1-1---1------
G ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-----2-2-2---0------
D ----2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--0--0--0--0-----3-3-3---2------
A ----3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--2--2--2--2-----3-3-3---3------
E ----------------------------3--3--3--3-----1-1-1----------

      I really need it really really need it San Tro-pez


This repeats four times, and the fourth time ends on an B:
      C                       G              F       B

E ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--3--3--3--3-----1-1-1----------
B ----1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--0--0--0--0-----1-1-1---4------
G ----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-----2-2-2---4------
D ----2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--0--0--0--0-----3-3-3---4------
A ----3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--2--2--2--2-----3-3-3---2------
E ----------------------------3--3--3--3-----1-1-1----------

      really need it  man  I  got  to        get a   -way


The solos continue over this rhythmic pattern (which may well be
a combination of the bass and rhythm guitar parts, but this is
the way I do it, and it sounds fine when played along with the
CD):

     B   A   B    D           Db C  B  A  B

E -----------------------------------------------
B ---4---2---4----7-7-7-7-7-7-6--5--4--2--4------
G ---4---2---4----7-7-7-7-7-7-6--5--4--2--4------
D ---4---2---4----7-7-7-7-7-7-6--5--4--2--4------
A ---2---0---2----5-5-5-5-5-5-4--3--2--0--2------
E -----------------------------------------------


During the second solo, with the harmonica, drop the Db and C
chords and just riff on the A, B, and D.
