Artist: Roger Miller
Song: Do Wacka Do
Tabbed By: JohnnyV

Tabbed this myself by ear after cracking up at the episode of Raising Hope that I heard 
it on. Hilariously fun tune to sing and play. The "Root, doot, doot, doot, doot, do-doo, 
doo" part might not be 100% accurate, but this is the best I've got. Enjoy.

Legend:

p = Pull-off
/ = Slide up
b = Bend

The hot lick should go

e----------------------
B-3-2-1-0--------------
G---------3-2-2-1------
D-----------------5b-br
A----------------------
E----------------------

and I like to slide into the 5 on the D string
Other than that, sounds good.
