                      Dead Milkmen - Ringo Buys A Rifle
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Ben Gladdle (moose9377@hotmail.com)

I recommend playing this with a capo on 2. This way, the intro/verse
riff is a LOT easier. Also, please help! I need the rest of the
words!

Use bar chords throughout, but if you're using the capo, the F in the
interlude bit will have to be played higher up. eg. x-8-10-10-10-8 (chord
is not relative to capo, refers to actual frets!)


Intro/Verse Riff:
----------------
Tabbing here IS relative to capo, but chord names are kept normal (as if
the capo wasn't there). So it is basically a B chord, but here it will
look like an A. If this confuses you, please just ask! If you don't have
a capo, just play a B chord (x24442) or you can even try playing the B
with all the sus variations as below, but it's very difficult without a
capo.

   B                                               F#
E--0-0-2-0-0-0--|--0-0-0-0-0-0--|--0-0-2-0-0-0--|--0---------|
B--2-2-2-2-3-2--|--2-2-3-2-0-2--|--2-2-2-2-3-2--|--0---------|
G--2-2-2-2-2-2--|--2-2-2-2-2-2--|--2-2-2-2-2-2--|--1---------|
D--2-2-2-2-2-2--|--2-2-2-2-2-2--|--2-2-2-2-2-2--|--2-.......-|
A--0-0-0-0-0-0--|--0-0-0-0-0-0--|--0-0-0-0-0-0--|--2---------|
E---------------|---------------|---------------|--0---------|

Timing is approximate, but fairly close.


Again, all the chords throughout the entire tab are given as actual bar
chords, so play them the same no matter whether you've got a capo on or
not. I'm sure you'll figure it out.


verse: (with verse riff of course)
B
We aren't ourselves
Brains on the shelf
We'll all wake up
F#
When Ringo buys a rifle

verse:
We live we breathe
We spread disease
That all must end
When Ringo buys a rifle

pre-chorus:
G
People told him what to say
A
Ordered (???) dream away
F#
Paul was dubbing Ringo's drumming
G
John was dubbing Ringo's humming
A
People were starting to talk

chorus:
(play short sharp chords here, exactly as shown, in time with the words)
D  C     C

We'll walk on water
Ringo buys a rifle

verse:
Animals will bear their fangs
Pope will join a gang
We'll all get new shoes
When Ringo buys a rifle

verse:
Buildings come crashing down
Lost things will be found
Life'll be so much better
When Ringo buys a rifle

pre-chorus:
Tried to keep his head level
Was possessed by the devil
Church is callin' Ringo's mom
Telling her Ringo's a bum
Rumors are starting to fly

chorus:
We'll be one
To love a gun
That's how we'll live
Ringo buys a rifle
We start small
Must learn to crawl
We'll learn to fly
Ringo buys a rifle

interlude:
(let chords ring)
C
Doesn't want to be cute
F
He just wants to shoot
G
Blow them away
C
Make them all pay
F
His mind has jumped track
G
He's a Beatle maniac
C                       E
Hey Paul, you asshole - DUB THIS!

(back to verse riff)

When Ringo buys a rifle
When Ringo buys a rifle

pre-chorus:
People told him what to say
Ordered (???) away
Paul was dubbing Ringo's drumming
John was dubbing Ringo's humming
People were starting to talk
He is one with indoor plumbing
Paul's still dubbing Ringo's drumming
He's formed with the NRA
(???) away
Rumors are starting to fly
He let (???) acid dream away

End on D.
