Hey everyone, this is my first tab but im sure its good. Ive been looking all over the 
for a good "Even Rats" tab, but couldnt find one that i really liked. So here is my 
of it. I even included lyrics. Enjoy!

Guitar 1 - (clean) standard tuning (E,A,D,G,B,e)

note: when i say "repeat ___ times", you can repeat this how ever many times you feel is 
The Slip does different repititions in shows than on the CD. i just use these to give 
something to work with.

Intro 1:
e---------------------|
B---------------------|   repeat this 4 times
G-----11p7-----11p7---|
D-7h9------7h9--------|
A---------------------|
E---------------------|

then the chords come in, if you are doing this with two guitarists in a band it might be 
good idea to have a second guitar play this part, but if it is a single guitar, skip 
chords and just keep with the opening part.

Intro 1 continued:                                   p.m.----------|
e---------------------|                            e---------------|
B--8-8-8-8------------|                            B---------------|
G--7-7-7-7---9-9--5-5-|                            G--5-5-5-5-5----|
D--5-5-5-5---9-9--5-5-| repeat this twice....then  D--5-5-5-5-5----|
A------------7-7--3-3-|                            A--3-3-3-3-3----|
E---------------------|                            E---------------|


ok, this next riff is the main riff of the entire song and is used in the last part of 
i call the "intro" and also the Verse.

Intro 2:
e-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-7------------------7------------------7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-|
D-7---9--7--7--9---------9--7--7--9-----7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-|
A-5----10-10-10-10--------10-10-10-10---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5-|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

e--------------|
B--------------|
G--------------|
D-7h9-9p7-7----|   repeat Intro 2 twice
A-----------10-|
E--------------|

Verse 1:
e-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-7------------------7------------------7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-|
D-7---9--7--7--9---------9--7--7--9-----7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-|
A-5----10-10-10-10--------10-10-10-10---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5-|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|

e-------------------|
B-------------------|
G-------------------|
D-7h9p7--7h9h7------|   repeat Verse 3 times
A--------------10---|
E-------------------|

note: on the last repitition of the verse, leave out that last lick and play the D power 
(5,7,7 on the tabs) eight times on the last bar instead of just four.


Chorus:
e---------------------------|
B---------------------------|
G--5-4-0-5-4-0-5-4----------|
D------------------5-5-5-5--|  repeat this twice,
A------------------5-5-5-5--|
E------------------3-3-3-3--|

e----------------------------------------------------|
B----------------------------------------------------|
G-5-4-0-5-4-0-4-2--7-7-7-7---4-2-0-4-2-0-4-2-7-7-7-7-|
D------------------7-7-7-7-------------------7-7-7-7-|
A------------------5-5-5-5-------------------5-5-5-5-|
E----------------------------------------------------|

e-----------------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------|
G-4-2-0-4-2-0-----------------------------------------|
D------------------5-7---5-7---5-(7)------------------|  repeat when from
A-------------5/7------7-----7------------------------|  when you hit the
E-----------------------------------------------------|  5th fret on the D
                                                         string 3 more times


Ok, VERSE and CHORUS repeat again, that last lick in the 2nd chorus is repeated more 
the 1st, ill let you figure that part out.

The bridge is also sort of a guitar solo.

Solo: this starts when he sings "whoa whoa whoa" higher and higher.
e--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B----------------5-8----8-7-5--------8-7-5----------8-7-5------------------|
G------5-4--7-5---------------7-5-4---------7-5-4---------7-5-4------------|
D-7-5---------------------------------------------7-------------7-5--------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------(7)----|
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then play the opening part again:
e---------------------|
B---------------------|
G-----11p7-----11p7---|
D-7h9------7h9--------|
A---------------------|
E---------------------|

After that is the outro

Outro:
e----------10---------------------------10---------------------------------|
B-12-7-10-----8-10--12-7--8-10-12-7-10-----8-10----------------------------|
G--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

repeat this part twice then play this

lick during the outro:
e--------------------------------------------------------|
B-12--12--12--12---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--15----|
G---12--12--12--12---12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12------|
D--------------------------------------------------------|
A--------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------------|

and follow from that part in to the final part:
e--------------------------10----------------------------------------------|
B-8-10--12-7--8-10-12-7-10----8-10--12-7--8-10-(12)------------------------|
G--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
