(clean sound) 
                                                         x2 
e|----------------------||--------------------------------||
B|----------------------||--------------------------------||
G|-------2--2--2--2--2--||--2----2----2-4--2--2--2--2--2--||
D|----2--2--2--2--2--2--||--2-2--2-4--2-2--2--2--2--2--2--||
A|----0-----------------||----0----0----------------------||
E|----------------------||--------------------------------||
      v  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^     ^ v  ^ v  ^ v  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^

During the first verse, keep repeating the section above between |: and :|
occasionally playing it this way to emphasize the words:

e|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|---2----2----2----2--2--2--2--2----|
D|---2----2----2-2--2--2--2--2--2----|
A|-----3----5----0-------------------|
E|-----------------------------------|
     ^ v  ^ v  ^ v  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^

Then after 'They got a lot o' nice girls' comes the break. Resume playing
the same as above with heavy distortion:
 
                                                         x2
e|----------------------||--------------------------------||
B|----------------------||--------------------------------||
G|-------2--2--2--2--2--||--2----2----2----2--2--2--2--2--||
D|----2--2--2--2--2--2--||--2----2----2-2--2--2--2--2--2--||
A|----0-----------------||----3----5----0-----------------||
E|----------------------||--------------------------------||
      v  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^     ^ v  ^ v  ^ v  ^  ^  ^  ^  ^

Keep repeating the part in between ||   || during the second verse, then
after 'I might be mistaken', switch to:

                                                                         x2
e|----------------------------||-------------------------------------------||
B|----------------------------||-------------------------------------------||
G|----------------------------||------8--8-10--10--------------------------||
D|----10-10--10--10--10--10---||---10-8--8-10--10-10--10--10--10--10--10---||
A|----10-10--10--10--10--10---||---10-------------10--10--10--10--10--10---||
E|----------------------------||-------------------------------------------||
      v  ^   ^   ^   ^   ^        ^  v  ^ v   ^  v   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^

Then, during the guitar solo, keep playing the above section between |: :|
When the solo comes to an end, this is the pattern and the break:

e|------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------8--8-10--|
D|----10-10--10--10--10--10-----10-8--8-10--|
A|----10-10--10--10--10--10-----10----------|
E|------------------------------------------|
      v  ^   ^   ^   ^   ^      ^  v  ^ v

                                                                x2                           
e||-------5---5---5-----5---5---5-----5---5---5----------------||
B||------------------------------------------------------------||
G||---------------------------------------------------------2--||
D||---4/5---5---5---3/4---4---4---2/3---3---3---------------2--||
A||-----------------------------------------------0--0--3h4----||
E||------------------------------------------------------------||
(I usually play the D string with my pick and the E string with
   my middle finger. You can, of course, play both with your pick)


Repeat the break between |: and :| twice, then go back to the
clean part (same as the very first section). Play it 4 times,
hit the distortion, and play the same as the first verse until the fade...
