i don't know if this is one hundred percent right. i just listened to it on the rockers
swallow dvd and guess-and-checked. sounds just about right though. please correct me if
wrong. lyrics from rockerstoswallow.tk  with some changes due to what's sung on the dvd.
never heard a studio recording. please send me a file of it if you have one. that'd be
if anyone knows the name of the style/effect of piano nick uses on his keyboard
the verses please share it with me. even more dandy.
there's a way to strum through all of the first part of the chorus. just mute unwanted
with the index finger and the thumb when needed. your index should automatically mute the
e string. finger the chords with middle, ring, and pinky. experiment.
first tab. enjoy.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Down Boy
in standard tuning


No fame
All there is
All there was
On the second lady
Can't take a cent
Take a cut of that
Kind of ran
I'll stand kind of pushed
Kind of bent
On that heavy land
I'll stand for the sake of my friend
I will see him there

(do part two again)

The same
Not begin
Not give up
In a better way
Again
wash the stain
Off his bed
Not to split them off
I'll stand for the sake of my friend
I will see him there
Well I will see him there

CHORUS PART I & II
(pretty much the same as the last with some minor variations. i'm sure you could figure
out by yourself.)

lol, "weird stuff here"
i reckon its just some harmonics on the g string followed by kinda tapping your palm against
the string whilst simultaneously wiggling the whammy... sounds more complex than it is!! ;P
nice tab ;)
