Intro: (slide guitar stuff, etc.  not worth tabbing.  if you must know it,
you can probably figure it out.)

Riff 1

Verse:  (play Riff 1 over the verses)

Painted old lady
Collecting splinters on the bench
She's waiting to go to heaven
One-eyed old man
With his party hat on
He swears there is no hell
No hell....

Chorus:  (play Riff 2 over chorus)
Play mainly the lower strings on chorus chords (i'm not very sure of these).
D2          Am  G
I know a girl
       D2       Am  G
Who believes a girl
       D2       Am       G     C  (beginning of verse chords)
Who believes she used to be a dog

Verse:   During the second verse, in addition to Riff 1, a second
         guitar repeats the chords C and Am.  You can also throw in a quick
         F between the Am and C to simulate the bass.  If you do this I
         suggest you only hit the low strings on the F chord to keep it from
         sounding jangly.
Elevator rising
Am                     (F)
I wonder what's on the top floor
C                       Am   (F)
The numbers are on the wall
The sun also rises
Am                 (F)
And the shadows soon fall
I keep looking to the sky
Am                  (F?)
Keep looking to the sky....

On the last "sky," there is an additional guitar part  G --1---/3---/5----
I can't quite get the chords behind this ascending part.  For now I stick
with the trusty F chord, but if anyone can hear this better, let me know.

Repeat Chorus

Riff before bridge (repeat x3)

D -2-2-2-2--1-1-1-1-----------------------------|
A -------------------2-2-2-2--------------------|
E -----------------------------4-4-2-4----------|

It don't matter what I say
                 F                  Am
Cause no one is right and no one is wrong
I guess that we'll find some day
                 F                    Am
That no one was right and no one was wrong

Solo (over chorus riff and chorus chords)

About the artist behind Dog:

Dada or Dadaism is a cultural movement that began in neutral Zürich, Switzerland, during World War I and peaked from 1916 to 1920. The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature (poetry, art manifestoes, art theory), theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti war politic through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. Dada activities included public gatherings, demonstrations, and publication of art/literary journals. Passionate coverage of art, politics, and culture filled their publications. The movement influenced later styles, Avant-garde and Downtown music movements, and groups including Surrealism, Nouveau Réalisme, Pop Art and Fluxus.

Dada is the groundwork to abstract art and sound poetry, a starting point for performance art, a prelude to postmodernism, an influence on pop art, a celebration of antiart to be later embraced for anarcho-political uses in the 1960s and the movement that lay the foundation for Surrealism.
