Cage the Elephant - Aint No Rest For The Wicked

Standard Tuning

After watching various live performances and listening to the track I've worked out what 
think is pretty damn close to the actual tabliture.

[Intro]
(The actual song uses a slide, but I've worked this out without a slide, so I don't know 
it sounds right with one)
e|-0-3-0-5-0--0-3-0-5-0-3/5-5-5-5--0-3-0-5-0--12\--0-3-0--0-3-0-0-3-0-|
B|-0-3-0-5-0--0-3-0-5-0-3/5-5-5-5--0-3-0-5-0--12\--0-3-0--0-3-0-0-3-0-|
G|-0-3-0-5-0--0-3-0-5-0-3/5-5-5-5--0-3-0-5-0--12\--0-3-0--0-3-0-0-3-0-|
D|-0-3-0-5-0--0-3-0-5-0-3/5-5-5-5--0-3-0-5-0--12\--0-3-0--0-3-0-0-3-0-|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

[Verse]
e|-----x-x-x-x-x-x-----x-x-x-x-x-x-------x-x-x-x-x-x-----x-x-----x-x----|
B|-----x-x-x-x-x-x-----x-x-x-x-x-x-------x-x-x-x-x-x-----x-x-----x-x----|
G|-----x-x-x-x-x-x-----x-x-x-x-x-x-------x-x-x-x-x-x-----x-x-----x-x----|
D|-5-5-x-x-x-x-x-x-8-8-x-x-x-x-x-x-10-10-x-x-x-x-x-x-8-8-x-x-3-3-x-x-5-5|x4
A|-5-5-x-x-x-x-x-x-8-8-x-x-x-x-x-x-10-10-x-x-x-x-x-x-8-8-x-x-3-3-x-x-5-5|
E|-3-3-x-x-x-x-x-x-6-6-x-x-x-x-x-x-8--8--x-x-x-x-x-x-6-6-x-x-1-1-x-x-3-3|

But on the 4th time, end on -
e|-----x-x-x-x-x-x-----x-x-x-x-x-x-------x-x-x-x-x-x--0-3-0-0-3-0|
B|-----x-x-x-x-x-x-----x-x-x-x-x-x-------x-x-x-x-x-x--0-3-0-0-3-0|
G|-----x-x-x-x-x-x-----x-x-x-x-x-x-------x-x-x-x-x-x--0-3-0-0-3-0|
D|-5-5-x-x-x-x-x-x-8-8-x-x-x-x-x-x-10-10-x-x-x-x-x-x--0-3-0-0-3-0|
A|-5-5-x-x-x-x-x-x-8-8-x-x-x-x-x-x-10-10-x-x-x-x-x-x-------------|
E|-3-3-x-x-x-x-x-x-6-6-x-x-x-x-x-x-8--8--x-x-x-x-x-x-------------|

[Chorus]
e|-3/12-3/5-5-5-5|
B|-3/12-3/5-5-5-5|
G|-3/12-3/5-5-5-5|
D|-3/12-3/5-5-5-5|X8
A|---------------|
E|---------------|

Then the verse repeats again

Then the Chorus repeats again, but then goes into a solo -

e|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|-11-11--------------11-11--------------11-11--------------|
G|----10-----------------10-----------------10--------------|
D|-------12--17-15-17-------12--17-15-17-------12--17-15-17-|
A|----------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------|
G|-12b-12b-12b-15b-15b-15b-17b17b17b|
D|----------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------|

Then the verse repeats again.

Then the Chorus repeats again and it ends there.

A pretty easy song, please rate and comment, and email me at bigearspeers28@hotmail.com 
you've got any problems with it.

Great tab for a great song. It would be cool if you had the slide version, but these notes sound dead on. Great Job.

Great tab. The perfect alternative to people who don't have slides and are too lazy to tune different. Haha.

Awesome!!! Love this song but I'm to lazy to tune down to G for just one song, deffently a much more practical version for anyone that wants to play this live :)
