Chorus:

F#5         G#5
Were you my friend when I belonged?

A5          Bsus2
Were you my friend when I was strong?

F#5         G#5
Were you my friend when I was weak?

A5          Bsus2
Were you my freind when I was callin', crawlin', out of
my head?

then another verse,another chorus then this riff...

The solo is in F# pentatonic, I believe, for any improvisers
or theory buffs.  No promises on this tab...Alex is very
creative and very hard to follow.  Oh yeah, in the chorus
that Bsus2 chord looks like this:

--2--
--2--
--4--
--4--
--2--
