this is what i made out of it
i think it sounds good (enough)

A Dm in the verses can mean that you have to play these intro-lines


     Dm

[Verses]

Dm                         G                               Dm
Smack, crack, bushwacked.  Tie another one to the racks, baby.
Dm                       G                               Dm
Hey kids, rock and roll. Nobody tells you where to go, baby.
F                                 Am
What if I ride? What if you walk? What if you rock around the clock?
G
Tick,  tock,  tick,  tock.
Em                                   Em                       G       Dm
What if you did? What if you walk?   What if you tried to get off, baby?


Dm                        G                               Dm
Hey kids, where are you?  Nobody tells you what to do, baby.
Dm                      G                                 Dm
Hey kids, shake a leg.  Maybe you're crazy in the head, baby.
F                                 Am
Maybe you did, maybe you walked.  Baby, you rocked around the clock.
G
Tick, tock, tick, tock.
Em                                 Em                        G      Dm
What if you did? What if you walk? What if you tried to get off, baby.

(then they use distortion)

           Dm                        G                                 Dm
           Hey kids, shake a leg.     Maybe you're crazy in the head, baby.

A couple of things:

I'm thinking that when the first distortion kicks in it is Am (not Dm) -> Am -> G quick -> Dm, and at the second distortion it is Em (not Dm) -> Em -> G quick -> Dm... although my hearing is poked so I could be well off. Also the lyrics seem a little inaccurate, but around the bonfire after a few Heinies nobody cares anyway.

Otherwise this tab is pretty damn sweet and fun to play, much respect.

Cheers

I like the electric guitar riff.

The intro acoustic riff is wrong, I think, but if you finger a Dm, you can figure it out by yourself. 4*
