Ive looked around for some tabs for this song but none of them
seem to be right. So i thought id figure it all out and put the
song together the way i learnt it. And ill tell you all now,
this tab is 100% correct.

Just thought i may as well throw in the lyrics
for anyone new to the song:

And it's all over
Sin in the ratty air
I got suspended
Suspended in the air
I tried to kiss you
But you were never there
I went a-looking
Found you everywhere
Violent and lazy, barbershop sport
Grass doesn't grow on a busy sidewalk
And it's all over
Sin in the ratty yard
No, there's no pressure
Force fed buisness cards
I tried to kill him
Tried to kill you rock-n-roll star
Founding a bad trip
Some corperate facade
Violent and lazy, barbershop sport
Grass doesn't grow on a busy sidewalk
So now it's over
Envy the ratty star
Cause thats a winner
Love those business car
You're still pretending
Still sending those Christmas cards
And talking back there
Waiting at the bar
Violent and lazy, barbershop sport
Grass doesn't grow on a busy sidewalk
Violent and lazy, barbershop sport
Grass doesn't grow on a busy sidewalk
Violent and lazy, barbershop sport

You'll have to work out the strumming pattern yourself.
Just listen to it, heaps easy. But thats basically the
whole song. And i promise you this is the right way to
play it. There is also a second guitar that you can hear
in some parts of the song that plays a few of the chords
with some distortion on, but i wouldnt worry about that
at all. If you have any questions at all, just email me
at [email protected]

Id also like to thank a few people just randomly.
Thanks to milly, joel, rhys, jared, simmo and jacky.
