Standard tuning

Song is basically 3 open chords with a lot of partial chords and hammer-ons and her 
signature staccato style. Sounds a lot harder than it is.

Listen to the song to get the feel for the really fast chord strums and the hammer-ons.

I figured this out from a combination of YouTube videos and listening to the song. I 
play it this way live. Hard to find Ani tabs so I wrote out this one for the Ani fans out there.


Verse:

   F         Am             G
E|-------11--0----------00--------3--3333--|
B|-------11--1----------11--------0--0000--|
G|--0h2--22--2----0h2-------------0--0000--|  repeat X12 until chorus
D|--0h3--33--2----0h2----------------------|
A|---------------------------0h2-----------|
E|---------------------------0h3-----------|

    (I heard the)
  sound of your bike (hit Am on "bike")
                   As your wheels hit the gravel (hit G on "gravel")
  etc.


Chorus:

    F     G               F       Am
E|--1--x-/3----3--3333----1--x----0--0000--|
B|--1--x-/3----3--3333----1--x----1--1111--|
G|--2--x-/4----4--4444----2--x----2--2222--|  repeat X3
D|--3--x-/5----5--5555----3--x----2--2222--|
A|-----------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

    You   came            crawling back to say
    You   wanna make      good    in the end
    Oh    ho              let me count the ways

    Fmaj7   C
E|--0-------0----|
B|--1-------1----|
G|--2-------0----|  X1
D|--3-------2----|
A|----------3----|
E|---------------|

   I abhor... you (first time)
   I adore... you (second time)


Repeat Verse x12 (might be x13)
Repeat Chorus with new lyrics

She sort of goes on and on here. I prefer to cut it off. Finish with verse X2, ending on 
the G, letting it ring:

             F            Am                           G
I heard the sound of your bike  As your wheels hit the gravel
         F             Am                G
and your engine in the driveway cutting off
