===================
HOLIDAY IN CAMBODIA
===================
By The Dead Kennedys (Composed by Jello Biafra)
A fantastic song.....from my formative years [ B-) ] .....just get the
evil power of the opening riff right and you're there!
This is an alternative tab for this song to the one already here.
I've tabbed it for the different riffs.....individually spelt out first,
then the way I play them together with the words.
(P.S. I can't take credit for working it out.....Raymond Amour did that
for me)

(Riff 1)
(Bass Riff)
(Bass Riff - muted) x4
So you been to school for a year or two
And you know you've seen it all
In daddy's car thinkin' you'll go far
Back east your type don't crawl
(Arpegiated Chords 1) x2
Play ethnicky jazz to parade your snazz
On your five grand stereo
Braggin that you know how the niggers feel cold
And the slums got so much soul
(Riff 2) x2
It's time to taste what you most fear
Right Guard will not help you here
(Arpegiated Chords 2) x2
Brace yourself, my dear
Brace yourself, my dear
(Chorus)
It's a holiday in Cambodia
It's tough kid but it's life
It's a holiday in Cambodia
Don't forget to pack a wife
(Riff 1)
(Bass Riff) x2
(Bass Riff - muted) x4
You're a Star-Belly Sneech you suck like a leech
You want everyone to act like you
Kiss ass while you bitch so you can get rich
But your boss gets richer off you
(Arpegiated Chords 1) x2
Well you'll work harder with a gun in your back
For a bowl of rice a day
Slave for soldiers till you starve
Then your head is skewered on a stake
(Riff 2) x2
Now you can go where the people are one
Now you can go where they get things done
(Arpegiated Chords 2) x2
What you need, my son
