Song: Wrong Way
Artist: Sublime
CD: Sublime
Tab: Greg Stewart

I have seen several versions of this song in the archives, but I couldn't
really follow them. Here is a simple version that fits the recording:

[Intro]

G--9-------------------------------7--------------------------------|
D--9-------------------------------7--------------------------------|
A--7-------------------------------5--------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
   Annie's twelve years old in two more she'll be a whore
   Nobody ever told her it's the   wrong way
   Don't be afraid with the        quickness you get laid for your
   Family get paid it's the        wrong way


[Verse]

   So we ran away and I'm         sorry when I say that straight
   To this very day it was the    wrong way
   She took a hike                don't matter if I like it or
   Not because she only wants the wrong way

E------------------------------------------------------|
   I gave her all that I          had to give but she
   Still wouldn't take it                oh no
   Her two brown eyes are leaking like a sieve and it

B                           D

D--9----9----9----9---------12---12---12—-------|
A-----------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------|
   Still ruins her makeup I never wanted...


Notes:
- You can see that the Verse repeats. The chord patterns are:
  A G, F# E, B A, E D, and this is played twice.

- I separated the Outro because it doesn’t follow the pattern.
  You’d expect to play A G at that point.

- I don’t usually play all the strings I’ve indicated here. I
  find just playing the last two strings sounds good enough.

i'm starting to think that all the sublime songs "w/ random picking"
is just an excuse not to figure out the hardest part.
