Green Day - Private Ale
Submitted By: Chris
EMail: cwsmith@together.net
Album:Kerplunk (1992 Look Out! Records)
Track:5
Guitar:Billie Joe Armstrong

Guitar I (lead)-Clean Electric
Guitar II (rhythm)-Medium Distortion Electric

Key:
\-slide up
/-slide down
Pm-palm mute
()-ghost note
~-let ring

Note:This is a little confusing.  The lead Guitar plays
the same thing as the rhythm guitar for the first part
of the verse but after the "just don't know/seem to care"
part, the lead guitar does it's own thing for the verses
which I have included.  Just so you're not too messed up...

"1, 2, 3, 4..."

That's it!  Pretty simple.  Remember that you need two
guitarists for this song.
===========Private Ale - GREEN DAY

Here is yet another Green Day tune off Kerplunk.  Cool song, fun to play. 
Write me if you
download this.  I want to hear from you.  If you have any Green Day requests,
I can play just
about everything.  Thanks.

INTRO:     (8'th notes, muted)
G#-------------------------------------------


VERSE:

G#----------------(muted)--------------------------
I wonder down these streets all by myself
G#----------------(muted)----------------   C#
Think of my future now I just don't know
C#                   G#
I don't seem to care

G#----------------(muted)----------------------
I stop to notice that I'm by your home
G#----------------(muted)-------   C#
I wonder if you're sitting all alone
C#                          G#
Or is your boyfriend there?


CHORUS:
                C#  G#   Eb
Because I feel so right
           C#    G#    Eb
Let my imagination go
                 C#  G#   Eb
Until you're in my sight
                        C#          G#        Eb
And through my veins temptation flows


BREAK:
    F#--G#     F#   C#       X4
(quick slide)

VERSE 2 (same chords as the first)
So I sit down here on the hard concrete
Think of my future now I just don't know
I don't seem to care .
So I sit across the street from your home
I wonder if you're sitting all alone
Or is your boyfriend there?

CHORUS

BREAK

BRIDGE: (lyrics impossible)
G#    C     F#     X4      then Eb
