  Tribute.

Long time ago me and my brother Kyle here,
G|-----------------0h2---------------------------------|
D|-------------0h2-------------------------------------|
A|----0-0-0-0------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

We were hitchhiking down a long and lonesome road.
G|-----------------0h2---------------------------------|
D|-------------0h2-------------------------------------|
A|----0-0-0-0------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

All of a sudden, there shined a shiny demon...
G|-----------------0h2---------------------------------|
D|-------------0h2-------------------------------------|
A|----0-0-0-0------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

In the middle of the road.
G|-----------------0h2---------------------------------|
D|-------------0h2-------------------------------------|
A|----0-0-0-0------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

And he said:

“Play the best song in the world, or I'll eat your souls."
G|------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------|
A|----0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-00-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0----|

Well me and Kyle well me we looked at each other,
G|-----------------0h2---------------------------------|
D|-------------0h2-------------------------------------|
A|----0-0-0-0------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

And we each said...   "Okay"


And we played the first thing that came to our heads,

Just so happened to be,

The Best Song in the World,

Look into my eyes and it's easy to see
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------|
A|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----8-8-8-8-8--8-8-8-------------------|

One and one make two, two and one make three,

Once every hundred-thousand years or so,
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------|
A|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----8-8-8-8-8--8-8-8-------------------|

And the grass don't grow...

Needless to say, the beast was stunned.
G|-----------------0h2---------------------------------|
D|-------------0h2-------------------------------------|

Whip-crack went his schwumpy tail,
G|-----------------0h2---------------------------------|
D|-------------0h2-------------------------------------|
A|----0-0-0-0------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

And the beast was done.
G|-----------------0h2---------------------------------|
D|-------------0h2-------------------------------------|
A|----0-0-0-0------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

He asked us: "Be you angels?"
G|-----------------0h2---------------------------------|
D|-------------0h2-------------------------------------|
A|----0-0-0-0------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

And we said, "Nay. We are but men!"
G|-----------------0h2---------------------------------|
D|-------------0h2-------------------------------------|
A|----0-0-0-0------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|


ROCK!

The song we sang on that fateful night,

G|-----------------------------------------------------|

It didn't actually sound anything like this song.

Which part to we repeat at the end, the parts after the solo or from the top?

I'm not sure, but i think there is a F# instead of a D in the "to the greatest song in the world..." section.

I'm pretty sure it's creating the chord with the guitar because D just seems wrong.

Anyone else hear it?

Yes, the D is wrong... Also the last Part is missing and there are a lot of parts where the bass is not playing (for example the whole Intro and first Verse). But it's a good tab to find out the real Bass-line ;) Most of it is right
