Chorus 1: (x2)

C
Shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
F6
Been a long time coming for the working man
Am
So shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
G
When the money is high, we can start to spend
(x2)


Verse 1:

C            
Every little bit goes a little of a long way.
                                              F
Life gets hard and I'm headed for the highway home, home
Am
Caught up in the middle of a headache and a heartbreak
                                                 G
Just when I thought I was clear of the mistakes, No, no oh oh


C
So tell me, tell me, tell me, what am I to do
F
I think that this life is darker than the view
Am
So help me, help me, help me, be a little more like you
G
When everything is falling, I'm gonna do the things you do



Chorus 2: (Same as first one)

C
Shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
F6
Been a long time coming for the working man
Am
So shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
G
When the money is high, we can start to spend
(x2)

Shake it

Stick:  (Base and " Falling" scale)

The Scale is a C-major over 2 octaves (starting in C). 3 first time just from the top and down
last time, dubble the tempo (if you can(?), I'can't, but I dont think its impossible) and 
do it first down and then up again.

BASE TAB!! (listen to rtyhm)
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---3--------------0-----------------------3------------------3------------------|   (x2)
E|----------3---------------1-------------------------3---------------------------|


Verse 2: (same as earlier)

C
Everything is serious and everything is fatal, hat's what they tell you
                              F
And that's how they make you know, know
Am
I'm tired of the books and I'm tired of the tables, everything is made with the same old labels
G
No, no oh oh


C
So tell me, tell me, tell me, what am I to do
F
I think that this life is darker than the view
Am
So help me, help me, help me, be a little more like you
G
When everything is falling, I'm gonna do the things you do



Chorus 3: same as earlier

C
Shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
F6
Been a long time coming for the working man
Am
So shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
G
When the money is high, we can start to spend, shake it


Rythm-break: (a little hard to tab, since it's mostly drums and random synth sounds
              but I'll give you the guitar bends)

e|-5b6r5---------5b6r5---------5b6r5------------5b8 (do slide on last, unless you have a 0,09 string
B|--------5b6r5---------5b6r5----------5b6r5--------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Chorus 4 (?): (same as before)

C
Shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
F6
Been a long time coming for the working man
Am
So shake it, shake it, and we're moving again
G
When the money is high, we can start to spend, shake it
(x4)

Shake it

More drum break!

The intro is not triplets, the rhythm is dotted quarter - dotted quarter - quarter. Other than that this is good.
