				NEW ORLEANS IS SINKING
				By The Tragically Hip

I'm not really sure if this is correct, but this is how I play it: 

The main riff looks like:

E|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|----------------------------|
D|--------2-----------0--0h2--|
A|-----------2-----2----------|
E|--0--0--------3-------------|

I think the bass plays something similiar to this as well.

The other catchy little riff looks something like:

E|----------0-----------------------------------0--------------------------|
B|--3p0--0-----3p0----------------------3p0--0-----3p0---------------------|
G|------------------4p0--3p0--2p0-----------------------4p0--3p0--2p0------|
D|---------------------------------2p0---------------------------------2---|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|


E|----------0--------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--3p0--0-----3p0---------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------4p0--3p0--2p0--4p0--3p0--2p0--2s4--4--4--4--4----------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

This riff changes alot in the song and I only tabbed one of these variations.
Note also that this riff is played much more quickly than the main riff.


The best way to figure out how it is to be played is to listen to the disk.
I play the main riff a few times and then throw in the other one every now
and then.

Sorry I don't know the solo.
I didn't have time to write out the lyrics.
Corrections and comments are welcome.


Good Luck!
