*This is the first attempt I've seen to tab this song in full. It was hard as hell

One question with two answers

Just you and I,
South on the five,
For a couple of days?
You take your car,
I'll take my bag,
You take the wheel,
I'll gather money for gas.

Awesome tab.
There's just some minor changes in the intro
and the 1st verse has open CGC palm muting
but great tab!
