                        Flirtin' With Disaster
                            Molly Hatchet

Tab by:omanyen@fusemail.com


INTRO: play the 6th string open & the 5th string on the 7th fret
       at the same time, continually, in a hard up & down motion.
       I've written this in small increments to make it easily
       understood.

h=hammer r=rake(pull-off) /=slide up \=slide down v=vibrate b=bend

INTRO:

2nd verse:


 Speedin' down the fast lane, playin' from town to town.
 The boys and I've been burnin' it up,
 can't seem to slow it down.
 I've got the pedal to the floor
 Our lives are runnin' faster
 Got our sights set straight ahead
 Flirtin' with disaster.

There's no solo, and the chords should be written out as numbers, not letters, or this would just be a "chords" tab.
