RANCID - ROOTS RADICALS
Guitar Tab
(Cross your fingers and hope that my mail program doesn't sucK)
Ok, here's my tab. I figured it out by listening to the CD and watching
them play it on Saturday Night Live. Here goes...
CHORDS: (I put down three variations, on SNL, RAncid used mostly the open
chords, but the powerchords are easier and sound just as good, if not
better. The other set of powerchords is an octave up and maybe
you'd rather play it with them) Standard Tuning (E,A,D,G,B,E - from bottom)

VERSE 2 (Same chords)
The radio was playing, Desmond Dekker was singing
on the 43rd bus as we climbed up the hill
nothing incoming but the reggae drumming
and we all come from unloving homes
I said "why even bother" and I picked up the bottle
hey Mr. bus driver please let these people on
rude girl carol was a miniskirt girl
my blurry vision saw nothing wrong
CHORUS
BRIDGE:
[F]Yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.....

VERSE 3:
Took the 60 bus out of downtown Campbell,
Ben Zanotto he was on there he was waiting for me
All the punk rockers, and the moon stompers
were out on the corner where they're sparing for change
I said the radio was playin, Desmond Dekker was singing
on the 43rd bus as we climbed up the hill
rude girl carol was a miniskirt girl,
my blurry vision saw nothing wrong
CHORUS
OUTRO - This should be easy enough to figure out, all the same chords are used
Well, that's what I got. The solo isn't quite right, so if ya got something
better, send it over. Thanks, enjoy.
10-4,
Jon
Oh, one more thing. Could you send me Missionary, Knowledge, and Sound
System by OpIvy when you have time? Thanks.
10-4,
Jon
