VERSE: Palm Mute all of this part

G#      G#     D#      C#
My Girlfriend, my dumb donut
G#            G#             D#    C#
Went out to a party just the other night
    G#          G#     D#             C#
But three hours later, seven shots of jager
G#             G#           D#      C#
She was in the bedroom with another guy.


PRE-CHORUS: NO PALM MUTE

      G#           G#            D#  C#
And I don't really want to know
         G#      G#         D#  C#
So don't tell me anymore
      G#           G#            D#  C#
And I really don't want to hear
          G#       G#        D#  C#
About her feet all up in the air.


CHORUS:  NO PALM MUTE

G#          G#      D#           C#
I'm not the one who acted like a ho
G#         G#     D#             C#
Why must I be the one who has to know
G#          G#      D#            C#
I'm not the one who messed up big time
   G#           G#      F            D#  
So spare me the details if you don't mind.


VERSE: ALL PALM MUTED

    G#         G#  
Now I can understand
D#                  C#
Friends who want to tell me
G#                  G#           D#    C#
Think they're gonna help me open up my eyes
        G#      G#
But the play-by-play
D#               C# 
Makes me want to lose it
G#             G#           D#        C#
Every time you do it man it turns the knife.


PRE-CHORUS: NO PALM MUTE

      G#           G#            D#  C#
And I don't really want to know
         G#      G#         D#  C#
So don't tell me anymore
      G#           G#            D#  C#
And I really don't want to hear
          G#       G#        D#  C#
About her feet all up in the air.


CHORUS:  NO PALM MUTE

G#          G#      D#           C#
I'm not the one who acted like a ho
G#         G#     D#             C#
Why must I be the one who has to know
G#          G#      D#            C#
I'm not the one who messed up big time
   G#           G#      F            D#  
So spare me the details if you don't mind.


PRE-BRIDGE:
G#


BRIDGE:

F5                          A#5
    Now I don't need to hear
                                 D#5    C5
About the sounds they were making
F5                        A#5
  And I don't need to hear
                        D#5
About how long it was taking
                             C#5
Or How the walls they were shaking.


PRE-VERSE: play with the 2nd guitar part
G#  G#  D#  C#
G#  G#  D#  C#


VERSE: ALL Palm Muted

    G#       G#   D#           C#
Now lying in bed, wallowing in sorrow
G#          G#               D#         C#
Missing the tomorrow that we could have had
G#                 G#    D#       C#
running through my head, over and over
G#             G#                D#      C#
Things I never told her now just make me sad.


VERSE 2: Not Palm Muted

       G#        G#
And it drives me insane
D#               C#
Sitting with the vision
G#              G#             D#    C#
Stuck with that image burned into my brain
      G#      G#
And I feel so dumb
     D#           C#
That I could ever trust her
      G#           G#
While someone else f***ed her
     D#     C#
Then walked away.


PRE-CHORUS: NO PALM MUTE

      G#           G#            D#  C#
And I don't really want to know
         G#      G#         D#  C#
So don't tell me anymore
      G#           G#            D#  C#
And I really don't want to hear
          G#       G#        D#  C#
About her feet all up in the air.


CHORUS:  NO PALM MUTE

G#          G#      D#           C#
I'm not the one who acted like a ho
G#         G#     D#             C#
Why must I be the one who has to know
G#          G#      D#            C#
I'm not the one who messed up big time
   G#           G#      F            D#  
So spare me the details if you don't mind.


(The band goes into a repeat thing, G#, G#, D# C# are repeated with the same rhythm as
before, just listen and go with it.)

I strongly recommend putting on a capo on the 1st fret especially for acoustic, then just play the normal chords instead of sharps. (and flat for the F) Really like this take otherwise and i think its very underated

Very well done and complete!
The awesome little solo riff sounds to me like

E|-------8--------6-------4----|
B|---9-----9--------8-------6--|
G|-8---8------8-------8--------|
D|-----------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|

other than that great job!
