With my baby's crime in my veins
I'll be the first to toast,  awh
To my rowdy soul

We don't know
So come alive we're the rolling people
Don't ask why
We just don't know now,   yeah

And then finally play the chorus one last time, with the lyrics from the 1st chorus.

             SOLO

All respect is due to David G for the solo, i haven't tabbed any of it. The solo is 
his works, didn't wanna steal his thunder.

This tab gives the verse chords like this:

|| A | B B | D ||

Am I right in saying that that's all supposed to take place within one bar? If so, IMO the extra pipe symbols make that confusing; it would be clearer to limit it to just one vertical line at the start of the bar and one at the end.

Also, according to the Powertab files elsewhere on this site, there's a brief use of the E chord before the switch to the D. So I think the verse chord changes would be better represented by something like this:


|1e&a2e&a3e&a4e&a|
|A B ED |


And the chorus:
|B   |A   |G A |GAB |
