Rhythm intro (Paul) 

It’s pretty much Fm-Gm progression. It’s pretty tricky to tab out but advice to 
play it would be to down strum the chords and up strum the open notes. 
On occasion Paul will barre the strings. These times can be heard pretty easily 
though since there is a lot of muted strumming when he does this.

Verse 1 Rhythm (Paul)

Fm            Gm     Fm           Gm
Johnny always takes more than he needs
Fm             Gm      Fm             Gm
Knows a couple chords, knows a couple leads

Fm-Gm 4xs

Fm            Gm    Fm           Gm
Johnny always needs more than he takes
Fm                  Gm      Fm                  Gm
Forgets a couple of chords, forgets a couple of breaks
Fm                  Gm  Fm      Gm
And everybody tells me Johnny is hot
Fm           Gm        Fm            Gm
Johnny needs something that he ain't got
