Intro:  Drums start, then the chords G#5 D#5 C#5 are played
        Then there is this riff over the chords:


Verse:  the chords start out palm muted on electric

G#5            D#5      C#5
My girlfriend, my dumb doughnut
    G#5                     D#5   C#5
We went to a party just the other night
  C#5                    D#5           C#5
Three hours later, and seven shots of jager
 G#5                          D#5    C#5
She was in the bedroom with another guy

The acoustic comes in on this part

       G#5                      D#5  C#5
And I don't really wanna know
          G#5              D#5  C#5
So don't tell me anymore
       G#5                      D#5  C#5
And I don't really wanna hear
           G#5                     D#5  C#5
About her feet all up in the air


     G#5                   D#5        C#5
Well I'm not the one who acted like a ho
 G#5              D#5             C#5
Why must I be the one who has to know
 C#5                  D#5           C#5
I'm not the one who screwed up big time
     G#5                   D#5       C#5
So spare me the details if you don't mind

Heres the part where the electric comes in:

G#5 - let it ring the strum it a bunch

F#2                    Bb5                            D#5   C5
  And I don't need to hear about the sounds you were makin
F#2                    Bb5                         D#5  C5
  And I don't need to hear about how long it was takin
Or how the walls they were shakin

Thats it.  Very catch song, you can't get it out of your head once you hear it.  Later.

Yo the proper chords are Ab Eb C# for pretty much the whole thing. there is one Fm instead of the C# at the end of one of the bits. I was gonna nick your tab but ill give you the benefit of the doubt.
