Avenues And Alleyways
---------------------
Tabbed by Andy Amoeba (blister@ingress.com)

This is just the rhythm guitar and bass part in the opening. Don't ask=20
me
what the strummed riffs are because I don't know! (Hey I'm lazy. Sue=20
me!)

G:-7---7---5-------7---5-------|
D:-7---7---5---5---7---5---5---|
A:-5---5---3---5---5---3---5---|
E:-------------3-----------3---|


This is a pretty close approximation of the main riff. Hey, its Rancid=20
and
its punk rock we're talking about here, so the whole thing is power=20
chords!
Listen to the CD for better timing...

This is the chorus and once again, the lyrics and timing are a little=20
off
in this tab (We're talking Microsloth EDIT here), so be sure to listen=20
to
the song and perhaps play along.

  in every alleyway and every avenue Oi! Oi! Oi!

And that's basically the song. There are some parts which I left out
(like the parts where they run the pick down the strings) but there's no
need to be anal about it. =3DP  Owell.  Hope this helps, and I figured=20
this
out the same day I bought the CD. =3D)  Take care, and happy playing. The
complete lyrics are at the end of this document. (Notice the reference=20
to
the songs "Battering Ram" off of the Lookout! 7" and "Black And Blue"
from "Let's Go!")

Avenues & Alleyways
-------------------
I figured out the problem
Yea, the problem is you
You didn't see us comin'
Now there's nothin' you can do
Times are gonna change
Change or step aside
It's my point of view
That took you by surprise

The suns comin' up
Yea the new dawn arrives
A generation standing
Stand with anger in their eyes
No love in the city cause
There's no connection
Been stricken by a disease
A racial infection

Chorus:
I'm a battering ram
Comin' through to you
In every alleyway
And every avenue

Actions could erase
All the fear that we suffer
People segregated
No one understands each other
He's a different color
But we're the same kid
I'll treat him like my brother
He will treat me like his

Well an eye for an eye
Yea a tooth for a tooth
Brother against brother
Should be singin' with the group
The inner cities burning
Yea its screaming black and blue
The power and the passion
Of a million youth

(Chorus)

I figured out the problem
Yea the problem is you
You didn't see us comin'
Now there's nothin you can do
He's a different color
But we're the same kid
I'll treat him like my brother
He'll treat me like his

Of all the blood that spills
Of all the guts that fly
The media paints a picture
That stains
Pits dogs against cats
Now who is responsible
The power in the issue
The force is unstoppable

(Chorus x2)
