 1st Verse
 Gtrs I, II:
Verse Riff
(In the very left of the sound panorama is an overdriven electric guitar loosely
 strumming some chords, but as it's almost impossible to say what's excactly played,
 so I've just left that part out - but just play the chords from just above.)

     Drag him out your window 
     Dragging out your dead 
     Singing I miss you 
     Snakes & ladders flip the lid out pops
   the cracker smacks you in the head knifes
   you in the neck kicks you in the teeth steel
   toe caps takes all your credit cards step up
   get the gunge
     Get the eggs get the flan in the face the
   flan in the face the flan in the face
     Dance you fucker dance you fucker don't
   you dare
     Don't you dare don't you
     Flan in the face
     Take it with the love it's given take it with
   a pinch of salt take it to the taxman
     Let me back let me back I promise to be
   good don't look in the mirror at the face
   you don't recognize
     Help me, call the doctor, put me inside
   put me inside put me inside put me inside 
   put me inside
     I keep the wolf from the door but he
   calls me up calls me on the phone tells me
   all the ways that he's gonna mess me up
     Steal all my children if I don't pay the
   ransom & I'll never see him again if I
   squeal to the cops...
     Walking like giant cranes & with my X
   ray eyes i strip you naked in a
     Tight little world & are you on the list?
     Stepford wives who are we to complain?
     Investments & dealers. Investments &
   dealers
     Cold wives & mistresses.
     Cold wives & sunday papers city boys
   in First Class don't know we're born just
   know
     Someone else is gonna come & clean it up
     Born & raised for the job
   Someone always does I wish you'd get up
   go over get up go over & turn your tape off

About the artist behind A Wolf At The Door Tab:

Radiohead are an English alternative rock band from Oxfordshire. The band is composed of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano, electronics), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, other instruments), Ed O'Brien (guitar, backing vocals), Colin Greenwood (bass guitar, synthesisers) and Phil Selway (drums, percussion). Radiohead have released seven albums and have sold over 23 million records throughout their career.[1]

Radiohead released their first single, "Creep", in 1992, and their debut album, Pablo Honey, in 1993. Though initially unsuccessful, "Creep" was a worldwide hit when reissued a year later. Radiohead's popularity in the United Kingdom increased with the release of their second album, The Bends (1995). The band's textured guitar atmospheres and Yorke's falsetto singing were warmly received by critics and fans. With the release of OK Computer (1997), Radiohead were propelled to greater fame worldwide. Featuring an expansive sound and themes of alienation from the modern world, OK Computer has often been acclaimed as a landmark record of the 1990s.

The release of Kid A (2000) and Amnesiac (2001) saw Radiohead reach their peak popularity, although the albums divided critical opinion. This period marked a change in Radiohead's musical style, with their incorporation of avant-garde electronic music, Krautrock and jazz influences. Hail to the Thief (2003), Radiohead's sixth album, blended styles from throughout the band's career, mixing guitar-driven rock, electronic influences and contemporary lyrics. Radiohead subsequently left their record label, EMI, and released their seventh album, In Rainbows (2007), through their own website as a digital download for which customers selected their own price.
