This is not meant to be absolutely complete, nor do I make any attempt 
to display the rhythm used.  This is merely a starting point.  Most of
the song is here.  Some of it is not.  I have included times on the CD
to better show which parts I'm referring to.  Enjoy!

[00:49 on the CD]

B*      B                A
Worried sick my eyes are hurting
To rest my head I'd take a life
Outside the girls are dancing
'Cause when you're down it just don't seem right

Feeling second fiddle to a dead man
Up to my neck with your disregard
Like a beat dog that's walking on the broadway
No one wants to hear you when you're down

For chorus, use barre chords
 
 C#              B
  Sister luck is screaming out 
  A
  Somebody else's name
 C#              B
  Sister luck is screaming out
  A
  Somebody else's name

REPEAT INTRO LEAD PART

A flip of a coin might make a head turn
No surprise, who sleeps
Held my hand over a candle
Flame burnin' but I never weep

  Sister luck is screaming out 
  Somebody else's name
  Sister luck is screaming out
  Somebody else's name

  What a shame

you tabbed this 1/2 a step wrong. The first chord isn't a B its a C. If you listen to the record and play this song as you have tabbed it it doesn't sound right, because it is 1/2 a tone flat. Other than that good tab

At first I thought my guitar was out of tune. Then I thought I was listening to a different version of the song. But definitely this tab is 1\2 tone down. As long as you know is good. P.S.: Rhythm in Open G (or Open A with a capo) sounds ways better.
