                             Tribute - Tenacious D
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Marcel Schillinsky
E-mail: marcel.schillinsky@arcor.de

Tuning:E-A-D-G


I think, that's what Tenacious D are playing on the Bass in the albumversion.
Some picking could be more a interpretation of myself, but that's the part noone can and should copy
from another musician, so take this as a possibility to learn the song and find your own interpretation ;)


[Intro/1st Verse, no bass]

        This is the greatest and best song in the world...
        Tribute.
        Long time ago me and my brother Kyle here,
        We was hitchhiking down a long and lonesome road.
        All of a sudden,
        There shined a shiny demon,
        In the middle of the road,
        And he said!


[Bridge, no bass]

        Play the best song in the world, or I'll eat your souls...


[2nd verse, no bass]

        Well me and Kyle,
        we looked at each other,
        And we each said,
        Okay.


[Bridge]
        And we played the first thing that came to our heads,
        Just so happened to be
        The best song in the world,
        It was the best song in the world.


        Look  into  my  eyes   and it's easy to see
        Once    every   hundred thousand years  or so

[3rd Verse]
         Needless to say,               The beast was stunned.
         Whip-crack went his whippy tail, And the beast was done.
         He asked us,                     Be you angels?
