Band: Lee Rocker
Song: Funny Car Graveyard
Tuning: Standard

Alright kids, back with another. Very hard to resist tabbing
another Setzer song. But I figure my heart could use the break.
Didn't really do a good job resisting since, for those of yous who don't know
who Lee Rocker is, he was the bassist for the Stray Cats. He actually
has put out some good stuff. He's got a great voice, and a nice 
gritty, bluesy sound. This is the 11th track off of their 2006
album: Racin the Devil. I might have underestimated the song a bit.
It sounded easy but it was actually a little tricky. There are
some parts where the vocals get in the way and, well, my ear isn't 
as good as where I want it to be. I'm pretty sure there are
two guitars in the band. But the parts are playable on one.
Strums are not exact. Listen for
the changes. Let's go!

INTRO:

e|----------|-------------------------------7/8-|

That's it for yet another one guys. Not a lot of parts but that
last progression is a little unclear to me. Up next is another song
from the Reverend: "Five O Ford". Let me know if you have any
corrections. Thanks! Have fun!
