Artist    Tenacious D
Album     Tenacious D
Track     Wonderboy
Tuning    D# G# C# F# A# D# (one step down from standard, but you can play in
standard if you want)

This tab is copied from a magazine and is 100% perfect. The song is fun to play,
and is pretty easy except for THAT solo. I'm gonna type up the solo from the
magazine as well, but it's too long and I can't be arsed, so maybe another time, eh?

ONCE YOU'VE PLAYED THE INTRO, THEN JUMP STRAIGHT INTO VERSE 1

[Intro]

   D Bb/D x4

[Verse 1]

   D                          Bb/D
   High above the mucky-muck, castle made of stew
   D                         Bb/D
       There sits Wonderboy, sitting oh so proudly
   D5                 D/C#                           Bm          Asus4  G  A
       not much to say    when you're high above the mucky-muck, yeah,    yeah


[Chorus]

   D        Bb/D  D             Bb/D
       Wonderboy,    what is the secret of your power?
   D5        D/C#           Bm          Asus4         G     A    D
       Wonderboy, won't you take me far away from the mucky-muck man?


[Bridge]

   D Bb/D x4


[Verse 2]

   D                                                 Bb/D
   Now it's time for me to tell you about Young Nastyman
                               D                                  Bb/D
   Arch rival and nemesis of Wonderboy, with powers comparable to Wonderboy
        D5                                                 D/C#
   What powers do you ask? I dunno, how about the power of flight?
                            Bm                           Asus4
   That do anything for ya?    That's levitation, Holmes
                                   G                       D/F#
   How 'bout the power to kill a yak from 200 yards away...
        Em            A7        Aadd11/A   A7(v2)   Dadd11/A(v2)
   With mind bullets!    That's teleki   -   nesis, Kyle
   G/A                    A7(v3)
       How 'bout the power,    to move you?

[Verse 3]
(Chords as in Verse 1)

   History of Wonderboy, and Young NastyMan
   Riggah-go-goo, riggah-goo-goo
   A secret to be told, a gold chest to be bold
   And blasting forth in three-part harmony


[Chorus]
(As above)

[Bridge]


[Verse 4]

         D
   Well, Wonderboy and Young Nastyman joined forces;
   Bb/D                                            D
   they formed a band the likes of which had never been seen,
                               Bb/D
   And they called themselves Tenacious D. That's right,
   D5              D/C#       Bm           Asus4  G   A        C  G  D
   Me! And KG! ("That's me"),    we're now Tena   -   cious D!

   Come fly with me, fly!

(These chords can be pretty hard at first if you can't remember them.
Print out the guitar chord chart seperately.)


[Solo]
(Chords as in Verse 1)


[Chorus]
(As above)


[Outro]

   D   Bb/D                D                    Bb/D
   Oh! Take my hand! Young Nasty Man, and we'll fly!
                  D                       Bb/D
   Bring out your broadsword, there's the hydra
             D                    Bb/D
   Slice his throat, and grab his scrote
                D                        Bb/D
   You take the high road, I'll take the low
   D                         Bb/D                   D
   There, the crevasse, fill it, with some mighty juice!
