D|-0---0---|

2nd Guitar: All open chords >>> 16th notes in the same pattern as the lead

C
Shoot from the back,
Am
take good aim,
Em
Make sure I'm dead
Em
Bang Bang

C
'Cause I'm a rat
Am
there's no mistake
Em
Under the bed
Em
where you sleep

C
Crush the skull
Am
make me tame
Em
Sweep it up
Em
Hide it away

C
No morals shown
Am
in no way explained
Em
Stupid human
Em
Shit for brains**

And draw tiny pictures
'round all the days
Bag and burn
Bang Bang**

Throw your judgments
across the breeze
Bag and burn
Bang Bang***

You live inside
your Jesus dream
Bag and burn
Bang Bang**

Am   Am
Bang Bang

Get some sleep
or lie in wait
Until the day
I run away

Forget the corpse
present the case
to bring me down
and lose your words

I'll follow you
into the grave
and at the gates
I see the passing say,

"The judge be judged,
and all the rich be saved."
I throw my curse
all across your days**

And draw tiny pictures
'round all the days
Bag and burn
Bang Bang**

Throw your judgments
across the breeze
Bag and burn
Bang Bang**

You live inside
your Jesus dream
Bag and burn
Bang Bang**

Am   Am
Bang Bang

C  Am  Em  Em
C  Am  Em  Em

And draw tiny pictures
'round all the days

Throw your judgments
across the breeze

Watch them float off
to never be saved

You live inside
your Jesus dream**

C  Am  Em  Em
C  Am  Em  Em

Three main problems here (aside from some errors in the lyrics). First, the lead guitar figure is wrong. It should be:
e|-------15---------------------------14----|
B|----12---------------------------10-------|
G|-12---------------------------11----------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

--------12----12--10----10--10/12--12--12/10-|
------8--------------------------------------|
---9-----------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------|

Second, the basic chord progression is wrong: the chords are Cmaj7, Am, and Em, not C, Am, and Em.

Finally, the chorus isn't correct. It should be:

Em Am
And draw tiny pictures
Em
'round all the dead leaves
Em
Bag and burn
Am
Bang Bang

Throw your judgments
across the breeze
Bag and burn
Bang Bang

You live inside
your Jesus dream
Bag and burn
Bang Bang

This is to correct my correction, above: In the chorus, the Am is played with the word "pictures," not "draw." I'm a newbie at formatting these things.
