Downtown Money Waster
C. Robinson, R. Robinson

Open G tuning: DGDGBD, played with a slide (duh).

Intro:

Fast, sloppy strumming:
D|--/12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------------------|
B|--/12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------------------|
G|--/12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------------------|
D|--/12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------|

Carry on strumming furiously on the 12th fret as the piano does its intro then slide 
the 12th and then immediately and dramatically down to nowhere in particular:

Repeat 6 times:
D|--/12\---------------------------------------------|
B|--/12\---------------------------------------------|
G|--/12\---------------------------------------------|
D|--/12\---------------------------------------------|
G|--/12\---------------------------------------------|
D|--/12\---------------------------------------------|

Verse Riff:

D|--------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
G|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|

Or:

D|--------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------|
G|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|

Or:

D|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|
B|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|
G|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|
D|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|
G|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|
D|---5/7\5--00-2/3-2/3-0-000-------------------------|

Alternate between these three as you see fit, they're all basically the same thing and 
aiming for a loose feel anyway.

Chorus ("When I'm around" part):

D|---3h5-55--555-------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------|

Again, vary it a bit by playing this phrase anywhere where you can hammer an F to a G.

Solo:

D|--/12-12-12-12-12\---/12-12-12-12-12\--------------|
B|--------------------------------------/12-12-------|
G|--------------------------------------------12-12\-|
D|---------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------|

D|---------------------------------------------------|
B|--/12-12\----/12\---12-12\-12\----12-12\-12-12\----|
G|----------10-------------------10------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------|

This one's all in the phrasing, so just about impossible to notate clearly here. Just 
your own: all the strings at the 10th and 12th frets are in key so just go nuts.

End with:
D|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|
B|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|
G|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|
D|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|
G|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|
D|--2s3-2s3-0----------------------------------------|

A very easy song, and one where you don't need to worry about getting it exactly like 
record since Rich is playing very loose anyway. Enjoy.


Legend:

|-10/12-| Slide  up from first fret to the next
|-12\10-| Slide down from first fret to next
|--/12----| Slide up to fret from anywhere
|--12\----| Slide down from fret to anywhere
|--/12\-| Slide up to and then straight down from fret
|--3h5--| Hammer on
