[Verse notes:  During the verses, one of the guitars is playing eighth notes
 on the upbeats of beats 2 and 3, this is done on the 13th frets of the high 
 E and B strings, i.e. the top two strings, listen for it on the album.
 The tabs after each line are the fills that are played after each verse.]

You yelled at me across the room but you did not make a sound

         F               C    Bb     Dm          C    Bb 
You were standing with a widower who lost his will to try

         F              C       Bb        Dm          C   Bb
And was fooling all the drunken girls who came to see him cry



Bb                        F              C                  Dm

F                        C              Bb             F
You said, "what?" and we nestled down into your mother hips

And now for the the solo:
[Note: Midway through the solo, a second guitar comes in with a harmony, but
 for the sake of simplicity and notation I have only written out the top part.
 The lower harmony notes are a major third lower, as far as I can tell.  Also,
 the chords that accompany the solo are  F-A-Bb-C in succession.]

Bb                        F              C                  Dm

(cool electric piano riff)

Then finish it up on an F Chord
