Computer Age  --   Neil Young
                   (the version by Sonic Youth)
                   (From the album "The Bridge" a tribute)

1.   Intro:   G G G  E  E  E  E  E  E (4 times) alot of E's on the 4th time
     can play G as simply all strings open (alla Rockin in the Free World)
2.   Main Riff:   (8 times, last 4 with lyrics)
  Bm             G     A       last time add F# at end
     Cars and trucks,   drive by me on the corner
     when I'm alright,  standing time before the signal
     When I see the light,  I feel like more than just a number
     And I stand by you,  or else we just don't see the others

3.   Fill  G G G A A A A A   (3 times)

4.   Intro  (G and E)  4 times

5.   Main Riff  (8 times, last 4 with lyrics)

     Bikes and vans,  drive right by me on the desert
     but I'm alright,  standing underneath the hot sun
     when I see the light,  I feel like more than just a number
     and I stand by you,  or else we just don't see the others
6.   Fill (3 times)
         "computer age"  (on third time)

7.   Intro (4 times)

8.   Middle part  

        D              A      Bm          F#
        Precious metal lies,  molded into highways
        G   D           G  A
        Run through me
        D        A       Bm                   F#
        Days and nights, weeks and months and seasons
        G   D           G  A
        Rolling through me
     Lead over middle part (i tried to keep the timing)

9.   Fill  (3 times)

10.   Intro (4 times)

11.   Main Riff  (8 times, last 4 with lyrics)

        I need you,  to let me know if there's a heartbeat
        let it pound and pound,  and I'll be flyin like a freebird
        you need me,  like ugly needs a mirror
        and day by day,  i guess our eyes are getting clearer

12.   End with the intro (try E and G power chords up on 7 and 10)

There are bits of lead throughout the song but i'll leave that to you
since I don't play them.  Just make sure there's plenty of distortion
on all guitars.  Neil would want it that way.
You stay in your village, and I will stay in mine. 
If your sheep come to eat our grass, we will kill you. 
We may kill you anyway to get your grass for our sheep if we run short.
Anyone who tries to make us change our ways is a witch, and we will kill him.
Stay out of our village.
