Tabbed by Chris Schulz

Standard Tuning

Here’s the riff, listen to the song for the exact rhythm. The strokes tend to follow the words.

Intro:

   n  n v n v n v N N v n  N N v
e|-----------------------------0-|
B|-----------------------------0-|
G|-----------------------------0-|
D|-2--2-4-5-4-2-4-2-2-2-2--2-2---|
A|-2--2-2-2-2-2-2-4-4---4--4-4---|
E|-3--3-3-3-3-3-3----------------|

Little n’s mean regular downstrokes, v’s are upstrokes, big N’s are downstrokes, but 8th 
time. Sounds better this way. Twice for the intro, then once for each line of verse.


Verse 1:

I don’t want to live my life in chains.
Hear these voices swimmin’ in my brains.
All they do is dig a deeper hole.
Deep enough to touch my tortured soul.

Here it changes:

e|------------------------------|
B|----2--------2----------------|
G|----2--------2----------------|
D|-4--2--------2--------2-------|
A|-2--0--------0--------2-------|
E|-3----------------3-2-0-------|

...my tortured soul.

For the chorus, just play the chords and a walkup or walkdown (like typed above) as indicated.


Chorus:

Em                 e f# g  A               A g f#
Here come the demons,   as far as I can see.

Em                    e f# g   A                  A g f#
  Runnin’ and screamin’,   and chasin’ after me.
Em                  e f# g      Am
  Maybe I’m dreamin’,     but I know I won’t be free ‘til

Another change:


e|---------------------------------------|
B|-----3-----------3---------3-------3---|
G|---2---2------2----2-----2---2---2---2-| This part twice.
D|-0-------------------------------------|
A|-----------1-----------3-------3-------|
E|---------------------------------------|
   rider and horse drown in  the  sea.

Then comes the pre-solo. Acoustic plays the intro, electric plays this, in the same 
as acoustic strumming:


Pre-Solo:

e|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|----------------------------|
D|-2--2-4-4b5r4-2-4-----------|
A|-2--2-4-4b5r4-2-4-4--4—-4-4-|
E|------------------4--4—-4-4-|


Verse Two:

There ain’t nothing for me down these tracks.
Put another monkey on my back.
I need an angel like I need a fix.
Something to hit me like a ton of bricks.

On “ton,” move into the chorus as above. It’s the same the second time through.


Slide Solo:

I only have part of this, but it’s awesome. Use a slide.

e|-/12~~~-10-10-10-------------10-10-10-10-10s12~~~-10-10--|
B|-----------------12s9-(9)--------------------------------|
G|-----------------------9~~~------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

e|-10-------------10-10-10-10-10s12~~~-10-10s7s10s15~~~----|
B|----12s9-(9)---------------------------------------------|
G|----------9~~~-------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

e|10-10-10-------------|
B|---------12s9-(9)----|
G|---------------9~~~--|
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|

That’s all I have. If you’re not good with a slide (like me), pull-offs work pretty well.

Those are all the parts of the song, except for the rest of this solo and the final 
Piece it together as you will. It's about 95% correct. (The solo's a bit iffy) Enjoy 
best.
“And you can tell Rolling Stone Magazine that my last words were... ‘I dig music.’”
