Listen to the song for the correct rhythms... umm it's tuned a whole step down.

D |------------------3--------------------------------/---|

And at the end for the chorus he kind of just plucks the chords string by string and I
really bother to tab out the exact pattern but this sounds pretty good to me while I 
it.

Lyrics:
I heard the cry out as the car came to a stop
A mix of panic and relief
On the edge of the Grand Canyon
Ten seconds later still sitting frozen
we burst out into fucking killer laughter
I couldn't catch my breath forever

And then it hit me
"Hey can you play that tape back"
I... can't believe that it was rollin'
Listen to the sound of our commentary
Then wicked yelling out
Screeching wheels, silence, howls...

That three week road trip was a road trip and a half - maybe more!
Captured on one roll of film, out of focus pictures bore,
Every national monument - every tourist trap
Across the 48 states that fell within our path

And then it hit me
"Hey can you play that tape back"
I... can't believe that it was rollin'
Listen to the sound or your commentary - laughing
"Oh man please shut up, I've had way more than enough."

By my count it all ended - Seventeen cassette tapes later!
Stupid, brain dead obersavtions - yes we were much too clever
To know that we were having the time of our lives
Now years later listening to those cassettes drives me to cry...

And then it hit me
"Hey can you play that tape back"
I...can't believe that it was rollin'
Listen to the sounds of our commentary
Recording our lives ourselves, I'm glad I have them now...

Philip M. Dragan
