Song: Road Trippin'
Band: Red Hot Chili Peppers

I love this song and it took a long time to find a good tutorial. I've finally figured 
it out. So I decided to upload this tab to help you playing the song. ;)

Road trippin' with my two favourite allies             |
Fully loaded we ghot snacks and supplies
It's time to leave this town
It's time to stea away
Let's go get lost
Anywhere in the U.S.A.

Let's go get lost
Let's go get lost                                    Part A

Blue you sit so pretty
West of the one
Sparkle light with yellow icing
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the

These smiling eyes are just a mirror for             Part B

                                                      _|_
                                                       |
So much has come Before those battles lost and won
This life is shiningmore forever in the sun
Now let us check our heads
And let us check the surf
Saying high and dry's                                Part A
More trouble than it's worth
In the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the

In Big Sur we take some time to linger on
We three hunky dories got our snakefinger on
Now let us drink the stars
It's time to steal away
Let's go get lost
Right here in the U.S.A.

Let's go get lost                                    Part A
Let's go get lost

Blue you sit so pretty
West of the one
