Crash - The Primitives

This song is essentially a 3 chord bash (B E F#) but the arrangement of
the guitar parts makes it sound a lot more interesting.

I worked this out based on my ears and snippets of videos (why do the
directors always focus in the singer?!) to get the finger positions.
I don't think it's too far away.

In the tab each dash (-) is roughly an 8th note but play along with the song
to get the exact feel.

[Riff A]
here you go way too fast
don't slow down you're gonna crash
you should watch, watch your step
don't look out gonna break your neck

[Riff B]
so shut, shut your mouth
cos I'm not listening anyhow
i've had enough, enough of you
enough to last a lifetime through

[Riff C]
so what do you want of me?
got no words of sympathy 
and if i go around with you
you know that i'll get messed up too with you

[Riff D]

don't slow down you're gonna crash
you don't know what's been going down
you've been running all over town

[Riff B (variation)]
so shut, shut your mouth
cos i'm not listening anyhow
i've had enough, enough of you
enough to last a lifetime through

[Riff C]
so what do you want of me?
got no cure for misery 
and if I go around with you
you know that i'll get messed up too with you

[Riff D]
