Sissyneck   Beck



 E: 022100

 A7: 575685






 The main riff is as follows:






 As you can see, it's not that hard. Just finger the E chord and pick

 the specified strings, and lift your ring finger for the second little

 2-string chord. Then, release the E chord and use your middle finger

 to play the 0-1-2 part. That leaves your middle finger right where it

 needs to be to finger the E again, so you can do it blindfolded. This

 little riff repeats continuously throughout the verses, the bridge, and

 the ending.


 Here are the tabs for the chorus:


 [(F#7)] [(A7)] [(E)]  




 This repeats once more to the end of the chorus, then you go back to

 the verse riff. Remember, don't expect to get the rhythm from the

 tabs. Listen to the song for that.


 There is a dobro(slide) guitar playing during the chorus. It's tuned

 to an E, and they mostly just slide up and down between the A and E

 frets. If you are so inclined to play it, just make it up as you go.

 I have a dobro, and it's really easy.


 That's it for the tabs, so here's what you've all been waiting

 for...the lyrics!


 [Verse 1] 

 I don't need no wheels I don't need no gasoline

 Cuz the wind that is blowin is blowin like a smoke machine

 And if I said to you that I was lookin for a place to get to

 Cuz my neck is broken and my pants aint getting no bigger



 I got a stolen wife and a rhinestone life

 and some good old boys

 I'm writin my will on a three-dollar bill

 in the evenin time


 [Verse 2] 

 All my friends tell me something is getting together

 I got a beard that would disappear if I dressed in leather

 Now let me tell ya bout my baby she was born in Arizona

 Sittin in the jailhouse trying to learn some good manners


 [Go to Cborus] 




 [Verse 3] 

 Matchstick strike when I'm ridin my bike to the depot

 Cuz everybody knows my name at the recreation center

 If I could only find a nickel I would pay myself off tonight

 Cuz nobody knows when the good times have passed out cold


 [Go to Cborus, play twice] 


 [Ending verse] 

 Don't talk to me, if you're lookin for somebody to cry on

 Don't talk to me, if you're lookin for somebody to cry on
