This tab is not my work, however I thought it really ought to be on UG.
It used to be on mxtabs before it got shut down and I managed to find
it again on guitartabz.net so the credit goes to whoever worked it out.
It is a very good tab, 100% correct for one guitar but it doesn't have
the riffs that go on behind many of the chords, if someone could work
those out then that would be great.


INTRO:

   G#m
e|--4--|
b|--4--|
g|--4--| try adding e--7- and e--6- with the pinkie
d|--6--|
a|--6--|
E|--4--|

and

   C#m
e|--4--| 
b|--5--|
g|--6--| adding e--6 and back to e--4 
d|--6--| 
a|--4--|
E|--4--|

then (0.45):
e|-----------------------------------4--|
b|-------5-2----4-0----5-2----4-0----4--|
g|-----------------------------------4--|
d|-----------------------------------6--|
a|-----------------------------------6--|
E|-----------------------------------4--|

then the reggae bit

C#m (i prefer 9 11 11 9 9 9 rather than 446654)
G#m (466444)

then verse:

Em (779987)
Bm (799777)
Am (577555)
Bm

VERSE

Em
I get around to singing about
      Bm
That gang of gin I'm in
Am
Then you'll know most certainly
     Bm
The kind of game I'm in

Em
You sound around to swinging about
     Bm
The gang of gin I'm rolling in, oh
Am
Then you'll know
         Bm
The kind of state I'm in


CHORUS

the 'who will buy...' part:

'who will buy my beautiful roses'/

e|--7---------------7---------9-7--|
b|--8-------------------8----------|
g|--9------------9---------9-------|

b|--5----5----|-------7---7--|
g|--5------5--|--7--------7--|
d|------------|--------------|
a|------------|--------------|
E|------------|--------------|

'who will buy my beautiful roses'/

e|--7---------------7---------9-7------|
b|--8------------------7------------7--|
g|--9------------7--------7------------|
d|-------------------------------------|
a|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|

'who will buy'              'my beautiful songs'

b|--5----5----|-------7----------7----|
g|--5------5--|--7--------7--------7--|
d|------------|-----------------------|
a|------------|-----------------------|
E|------------|-----------------------|

then

e|--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-7-7-7-6-6-6--|
b|--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--| 
g|--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--|
d|-----------------------------|
a|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|

'yeah in a nutshell'
e|--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-6-6-6-4-4-4--|
b|--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--|
g|--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--|
d|-----------------------------|
a|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|

(repeat and back to the reggae riff)


2nd VERSE

I get around to singing about
That gang of gin I'm in
Then you'll know
The kind of game I'm in
She was getting pally with a scally in the alley
Giving head for gear
She calls a spade a spade
Got slit from ear to ear

CHORUS again 

and:

E (779997)        C#m(9 11 11 9 9 9) 
I'll tell you my story
C#m                       G#m
The treachery it bores me
C#m                            G#m
Carl and McGee both promised me
A (577655)                 B(799877)
It would not happen this way


Carl is kept sedated
The frontman elevated
And McGee doing all he can to ruin my band
And keep me out the way 

In this industry of fools
Musclemen and ghouls
If you're not a puppet or a muppet
Then you might as well call it a day-ayay

The truth here gets distorted
The wall scrapings get snorted
I'm welcome back if I give up crack
But you gave me my first pipe anyway

Can't show no decorum

OK, on listening to the song, I've noticed that for the bit marked (0:45), you should play this:

e|-4-4-4-----4-4-4-----4-4-4-----4-4-4----
B|-5-5-5-5---4-4-4-4---5-5-5-5---4-4-4-4--
G|-6-6-6---6-4-4-4---4-6-6-6---6-4-4-4---4
D|-6-6-6-----6-6-6-----6-6-6-----6-6-6----
A|-4-4-4-----6-6-6-----4-4-4-----6-6-6----
E|-x-x-x-----4-4-4-----x-x-x-----4-4-4----

PLAY TWICE THEN:

e|-4-4-4-----4
B|-5-5-5-5---4
G|-6-6-6---6-4
D|-6-6-6-----6
A|-4-4-4-----6
E|-x-x-x-----4

THEN BACK INTO TAB AS WRITTEN

needs to be tuned down a key, and lots of lead guitar has been missed out
