Gasoline  The Airborne Toxic Event
You can play a nice simple version of this with a capo on 3 and the
substitutions Bb=G, Gm=Em, F=D, and Dm=Bm, which I've put in
parenthesis in the song. See notes at the end for solos and other info.
(look up the acoustic version of this song on youtube-itís good)
Intro Bb (G if capoed)
(strum low strings then middle strings to get the effect)
Five, six, seven, eight!
Eb F Gm Bb (C D Em G if capoed)
[Eb] [F] [Bb] [(C] [D] [G)]  
All the time, a[Bb(G)]wake--You're still on my mind.
But we were on our [Gm(Em)]own--Almost all the [F(D)]time.
And she'll step [Bb(G)]away--For a second or two.
And I close my [Gm(Em)]eyes. And I think of [F(D)]you.
We were [Eb(C)]only seven[F(D)]teen, we were [Gm(Em)]holding in our [Bb(G)]screams
like we'd [Eb(C)]torn it from the [F(D)]pages of some [Gm(Em)]lipstick maga[Bb(G))]zine
And you s[Eb(C)]cratch and turn and [F(D)]say,
"let's burn [Gm(Em)]ourselves up '[F(D)]til we [Eb(C)]scream"--like gaso[Bb(G]line
Solo over Bb (similar to intro Bb)
Those tender [Bb(G)]days--at your mother's house
And your [Gm(Em)]father would find my hand inside your [F(D)]blouse
But they tell me [Bb(G)]that--you're married now
Oh my [Gm(Em)]dear, I fear, I can't understand [F(D)]how
We were [Eb(C)]only seven[F(D)]teen, we were [Gm(Em)]holding back our [Bb(G)]screams
like we'd [Eb(C)]torn our lives from the [F(D)]pages of some [Gm(Em)]girly maga[Bb(G)]zines
And you s[Eb(C)]cratch and turn and [F(D)]say,
"let's burn these [Gm(Em)]sheets down [F(D)]to the [Eb(C)]seams"--like gaso[Bb(G)]line
Bb Dm Gm F x2 (G Bm Em C if capoed)
( Tab from: )
I was [Eb(C)]only twenty [F(D)]one, I wasn't [Gm(Em)]having any [Bb(G)]fun
And the [Eb(C)]words you said tore [F(D)]through my head like [Gm(Em)]bullets from a [Bb(G)]gun
And I [Eb(C)]shoulda just shown [F(D)]up and said,
"Get [Gm(Em)]in this [F(D)]car, let's [Eb(C)]run"
And these [Eb(C)]years have seen so [F(D)]many imit[Gm(Em)]ations turning [Bb(G)]green
Each like the [Eb(C)]last, they go right [F(D)]past like [Gm(Em)]credits on a [Bb(G)]screen
But your [Eb(C)]memory blazes [F(D)]through me
[Gm(Em)]Burning [F(D)]every[Eb(C)]thing--like gaso[Bb(G)]line

First solo
(these are all tenth fret 10ís below. No ones or zeroes)

 -10-10h12p10-x4 -8-8h10p8-|x4 [this whole line x2]

Second solo
(you should be able to play the chords with two fingers, or less,
and then hit the solo notes with your other fingers)
[Bb(G)] [Dm(Bm)]  

[Gm(Em)] [F(D)]  

Repeat, except 2nd time don't solo on F, just wail on the chord.
On the live acoustic version, violin plays this during the Dm repeat
(which they should have done on the album)

Finally, I think this is how the chords are played on the album
[Bb] [Gm] [F] [Eb] [F] [Gm] [Bb]  

I've been playing it like this, simpler, and sounds fine
[Bb] [Gm] [F] [Eb] [F] [Gm] [Bb]  

Watching them live, I see one guy plays the chords this way
while the other plays with a capo on 3. So if youíre playing
alone just fool with the placement of the chords to get
the sound you want. I really over-did the tab for a song
probably ten people have heard.
