               Pleads and Postcards by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: me, of course.
Email: cjmeserole@yahoo.com

Tuning: drop C
UPDATE: sorry, up top there^ it said the tuning was drop C standard.  that was my fault, I choose
the wrong tuning when I submitted the tab.  it's actually in Drop C (CGCFAD).  sorry =/

I didn't tab out all the lead cause it's hard to hear.  I'll (hopefully) get it all 
out eventually, but I wanted to get what I had up so people can play it now.

Verse 2 is the same as Verse 1, just in a different order, and the palm muted lead is
