They wanted cigarettes,

so to save a little money

They bummed one off this hippie

both pretty hungry and

pretty thirsty too

They found a store with a sign that said their beer was coldest.

So they sent in Brad 'cause he looked the oldest.

He got a case of beer and a candy bar, 
C
walked over to where all the registers are
G
laid his fake I.D. on the 
D
counter top.
G
The clerk looked, and turned to 
C
look back up and stopped.
G
He said "Son, I ain't gonna call the 
D
cops, but I'm gonna have to keep this card"
A                                  D
the guys both took it pretty hard.

They met another old hippie named Sleepy John,

So they gave him all their cash, he bought them some brews.
C
Was a beautiful day out in Santa Cruz
G
They were feelin' so good it 
D
Should of been a crime.

The crowd was cool, 
C
and the band was prime.

They made it back up front to their seats 
D
Just in time to they could sing with all their friends 
A
"the road goes on forever and the

party never ends".

great tab 5/5, you only really need the capo to match how you sing it, and i think the E's should be Em's, but thats without the capo so idk. thanks again for a great tab

I'd like to agree with dean on the Em thing, but I need to listen for it on the original first.

At the end of the last verse I think I hear a D7 when Todd says 'ends'. That might just be me, but I think it sounds good either way. Thanks for a great tab, best one I've seen in a while
