OK, the verse is almost entirely on E but it's mostly
a drums and bass thing except for Brian's teensy little fills.
Anyway, the main riff goes something like this with the rhythm
strumming an E the whole time:
 E :---------------- ---------------- ---------------- ----------------
 B :---------------- ---------------- ---------------- -5-4-2----------
 G :---------------- ---------------- ---------------- -------4-2h4-2--
 D :2--------------- --2------------- 2--------------- ---------------2
 A :--2--0---0--2--- 2---2--0-------- --2--0----0--2-2 ----------------
 E :-------4-------- ---------4-0---- --------4------- ---------------- 

Brian varies the little verse fills in every verse but to get started
Natural harmonics...... and a gradual bend
 E :-*12*---------------- ------------------
 B :-*12*---------------- ------------------
 G :--------------------- -9b--------------- 

[F#m]But if I [A]could You know I would
[E]Run [Esus4]away[E]
[E]Right now! (get a nice big pick scrape going here)
[E5]I can't s[A5]leep[D5] coz she snores like a chainsaw...
[E5]She ca[A5]n't [D5]cou[E5]nt all the pills I took
E5, A5, D5
SOLO (nice and easy for a change)
 E:------------- ----------------X-X as
 B:------------- ----------------X-X many
 G:-----------2- ----------------X-X times
 D:-2-1---2-4--- ----------------X-X as
 A:-----2------- ----------------X-X needed...
 E:------------- ----------------X-X

bass thing and
a bit of
E strumming
At the end as things get a little more psychotic just keep
pounding out E5, A5, D5 over and over until the cool wah/noise
You shouldn't have many problems figuring out the few couple of notes
that make up the verses, I just can't be stuffed writting it all down :)
Anyway, any comments or corrections or whatever would be cool.
