hey this is my first tab, so plz rate! My verse might not be completely right, but it's
I've got so far for it. this song's in Drop D tuning.  The bridge isn't perfect and it
be a bit rough and hard to do. The strumming was really hard to put down in this song, 
I tried my best. :)

Artist: Billy Talent
Song: Red Flag
Album: Billy Talent II

Chorus: (first time just drums)

Cast off the crutch that kills the pain,
The red flag waving never meant the same.
The kids of tommorow don't need today,
When they live in the sins of yesterday.

Cast off the crutch that kills the pain

Chorus x2

Cast off the crutch that kills the pain,
the red flag waving never meant the same.
The kids of tommorow don't need today,
When they live in the sins of yesterday.

Verse x2 (from 'Our only weapons are the guns of youth', same chords and stuff but
lyrics)

Like the smallest bee packs a sting,
Like a pawn checkmates a king,
We'll attack at the crack of dawn.

Build a ladder if there's a wall,
Don't be afraid to slip and fall,
Speak for yourself or they'll speak for you.

Pre-Chorus

The red flag waving never meant the same,
The red flag waving never meant the same, Aaah!

Chorus x2

Bridge x6 (on x3 or third time- whichever way you call it- the lyrics start)

e|--5-5-----------4-4---0-0-0---5-5-7-8--7-5-5|
B|--5-5-6-3-3-3-6-5-5-3-1-1-1-3-6-6-8-10-8-6-6|

D|--7-7-7-5-0-5-7-----5-------5---------------|
A|--------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------|

Like a fire, don't need water
Like a jury, needs a liar
Like riot, don't need order
Like a madman, needs a martyr.
(now the bass comes in)
We don't need them! x8

Chorus (first time only drums, then guitar comes for the second time and the third and
its the end of the song)

Ok, so that's the end of the song, hope you liked it and it helped you! Billy Talent rox!!
