I put a lot of time and effort into this one.  None of the versions I've seen thus far
have been correct, so here's as close as I could get to it:


Artist: Alkaline Trio
Song: Nose Over Tail
Album: Self-Titled/Sundials EP


Intro for Goddammit:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Crack my head open, on your kitchen floor

Anyway, you get the idea.

Okay, here's the part that people can get confused on.  Let me explain this:  NOSE OVER 
HAS TWO DIFFERENT VERSIONS.  The first version was on their first full-lengeth, 
and the second was on their self-titled album.  I will give you both versions.

This is the version they played on ***dammit:


Chorus:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------666666-888-999--------------------------------------------------|
----666666-XXXXXX-XXX-XXX--------------------------------------------------|
----444444-444444-666-777---77----77-----77------77777---------------------|
----------------------------55----44-----55------44444---------------------|
                               Fine time to fake a seizure

---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------666666-888-999----------------------4---------------------------|

----444444-444444-666-777---77----77-----------2---------------------------|
----------------------------55----44---------------------------------------|
     And feel your mouth on mine        You're saving me


After-Chorus:

Well, there you go.  As correct as I could get to 'Nose Over Tail'.  I'm 99.9% sure that 
two versions are 99.99% correct.
