Ramones/I Wanna Be Sedated
Album: Road To Ruin

I am amazed at all the incorrect versions of Ramones songs, 
so I figured I'd set em' straight. Johnny wails away on FULL
barre chords, not power chords and plays only downstrokes-
get the rhythm and the chords right. 

Tuning: Standard

  Intro:
e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|-8/9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-8/9-9-----------|
D|-8/9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-8/9-9-----------|
A|-6/7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-6/7-7-777777777-|
E|-----------------------------000000000-|
  Slight P.M. and crunch.................

Verse-play the rhythm like this-the open E
and the chord are not picked simutaneously.    To chorus:
e|-----------------------------------------|----------------|
B|-----------------------------------------|----------------|
G|----------------------(6)6666------------|(6)7777-9999999-|
D|---9---9---9---9---9---7-7777-9--9--9--9-|-7-7777-9999999-|
A|---7---7---7---7---7---7-7777-7--7--7--7-|-7-7777-7777777-|
E|-0---0---0---0---0-----5-5555--0--0--0---|-5-5555-0000000-|
  Twenty p.m..........xn|       p.m......xn|

  Chorus:
e|--------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------|
G|-8888888-99999-8888888-99999-8888888-99999-66666/888888-|

E|-7777777-00000-7777777-00000-7777777-00000-55555/777777-|
                                             Oh no........

Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do and no where to go, I wanna be sedated

Just get me to the airport put me on a plane
Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane
I can't control my fingers I can't control my brain
Oh no o no o no o no

Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do and no where to go-o-o I wanna be sedated

Just put me in a wheelchair get me to the show
Hurry hurry hurry before I gotta go
I can't control my fingers I can't control my toes

chisel just because the guy tabbed somthing wrong doesn't mean you've gotta be a jack ass....i thought it sounded good man don't let guys like him bring you down. I prefer power chords just because they're easier and the barre chord does'nt soind that much better but if thats the way to play it thats cool too.
