[Chorus 1]
Em
Edna Millon in a drop dead suit
                B7
Dutch pink in a downtown train

Two dollar pistol, but the gun won't shoot
                         Em
I'm in the corner in the pouring rain

16 men on a deadman's chest
                             B7
And I've been drinking from a broken cup

Two pair of pants and a mohair vest
                      Em
I'm full of burbon; I can't stand up

 [Chorus Chords]
      Am      Em       B7

[Chorus 2]
Am                   Em
Hey little bird, fly away home
     B7                Em
Your house is on fire; your children are alone
Am                   Em
Hey little bird, fly away home
     B7                Em
Your house is on fire; your children are alone

The SOLO and Ribot's licks over the verses are all playing off of the INTRO RIFF. With 
it is all about tone. Move the riff up the fretboard to try to get some of the licks.

Nice. I'm going to learn this song for sure. It definately has a couple of hammer-ons though, so if yo could post those as well, that would be great!
