The Faint  Fourth of July

First tab.
I found this song by accident and loved it, but couldn't find a tab or chords anywhere! I watched
a video of them on YouTube to get these chords, but it wasn't always looking at the guitarist so
it might not be fully accurate. I think it sounds good though!
It's quite easy, the chords you need are B (fret six not two), C#m, E (both open and barred on fret
six nearer the end). Have a listen to the song for a strumming pattern, but the last two lines are
single strums :)
[B]I'm gonna drown my [C#m]sorrows with a [E]couple more [B]beers
[B]And I'll feel worse [C#m]tomorrow, but [E]I don't think I [B]care
And it [B]wouldn't feel so [C#m]terrible if [E]she could explain the [B]rest
And [B]I'm gonna drown my [C#m]sorrows until [E]they can't hold their [B]breath
B, E (barre), B, E
And [B]I'm gonna call her [C#m]house right now and [E]tell her I've had [B]enough
And [B]don't come over to my [C#m]house right now 'cause [E]all my doors are [B]locked
And [B]what's this taste in my [C#m]mouth right now, I [E]wonder if it's [B]love?
Well, [B]I have tasted [C#m]love before and it [E]tastes just like [B]blood
B, E (barred), B, E
(In this verse, the Es at the beginning of each line are barred but not the second Es)
And [E]oh, I'm [C#m]afraid of what you've [E]done this time [B]around
[E]She danced to The [C#m]Faint one night and [E]I was forced to [B]watch
I've bullet [E]holes in [C#m]both my feet, Feel the [E]blood soak through my [B]socks
And [E]I'll crawl to your [C#m]house tonight and [E]pass out on your [B]lawn
E (barre) B
And I'll ask, ??What else do you want???
[E]What else do you [B]want?
[E]What else do you [B]want?
[E]What else do you [B]want?
'Cause I [B]haven't seen a [C#m]cloudless night since [E]stars turned to [B]black
And [B]I won't ask you [C#m]where you've been if you [E]ever make it [B]back
And [B]let's drive down to your [C#m]grandparents' house,
I'll [E]buy you a jar for your [B]tears
I [B]think I might say I [C#m]love you now, I [E]want you to cover your [B]ears
E (barre), B, E, B
