Song: Caution
Band: Operation Ivy
Album: Energy (1989)
Written by Jesse Michaels, Lint Armstrong, Matt Freeman and Dave Mello
Transcribed by Luke Knox (lukeknox@iname.com)

Let's get one thing straight: Operation Ivy is the greatest band of all
time.  Agreeing with me so far? Good! Then I'm sure you'll like this
favorite, Caution.  It's not a real tough one, but fun to play.

Intro:
E--------|
B--------|
G---12---|
D---12---|
A---10---|
E--------|
    G

Only chords used throughout song:
E------------------|
B------------------|
G------5-------3---|
D--3---5---5---3---|
A--3---3---5---1---|
E--1-------3-------|
   F   C   G   Bb
(Chorus):
[F]                      [C]             [G]
Caution is a word that I can't understand.

Riff:
E-------------------|
B-------------------|
G--7-5-7-5----------|
D-----------8-5-8-5-|

[F]                      [C]
Caution is a word that I can't understand.

(Verse):
[G]                        [F]           [C]
C  A  U  T  I  O  N,  was a word I could not understand.
[G]                                     [F]          [C]
Walked the dog with a real short leash, turned around saw
                  [G]
the dog walk me.  Stainless steel and painted glass give me
[F]                       [C]           [G]
pulse like a hammer and a mind to match. No relief, no food,
                      [F]                     [C]
no sleep, when you're king for a day you're a whore for a

week. (Riff:) E-----------------|
              B-----------------|
              G-7-5-7-5---------|
              D---------8-5-8-5-|

Then repeat chorus, with this riff:
E-----------------|
B-----------------|
G-------7-7-5-----|
D-8-5-8-------8-5-|

Next, play verse again, with the same riff as the last chorus. Play
chorus again after that, with the original riff. Then,

Bridge:
[Bb][C][F]                       [C][Bb][F]
           I didn't get it then.           I think I got it
    [Bb][C][F]                      [C]
now.        Caution my friend, don't step in the water
[Bb]    [F]
'till you know you can swim.

Then repeat chorus, with palm muting after the G, and that's it! Let me
know if there's a better way to play this song, or if you have any
comments, questions, etc
