Song: Prayer Of The Refugee
Artist: Rise Against
Album: The Sufferer & The Witness

This song has very interesting rhythm. Before the choruses everything stops and the
song speeds up considerably, then after most choruses the note is held, and the song returns
its original tempo. The bass part in itself, however, is quite straightforward. The 
are arranged according to the timing of the song and Courier New, size 9, is the font
use to print this tab. Enjoy!

apparently this doesn't line up properly. Just cut amd paste it to a word document and change it to a courier-type font. That should fix it.

This is by far the best bass tab for this song I have found! Great job!
