IntroGtr. 1A:-------0*----------------------------------------- E:0*------------3*----------------------------------
Em Am G
Am C G F
Am C G CThat's the basic song structure. Now, here's the lyrics w/the chords. I tried my best to line up the chords with the exact part of the word, but it's not entirely accurate I knew a Emman with a son bought him a gun he Amlearned shorty just how to uGse it taught him Emhuntin' and skinin' right from the beginin' builAmt himself a mighty fine Gkiller (killer) but sEmhorty got picked on beat on and kicked on and Amall his classmates wanted to pGunk him so with Emtears in his eye and the catcher in the rye anAmd he told his old man he went Ghuntin' (huntin') he never fEmelt so free like his destiny lay sAmomewhere out on the Ghorizon it's Emhard when you're cold he felt a hundred years old Am& G& and started pulling back on the trigger
ChorusGtr. 1 & Gtr. 2 AmThink I'm gonna die todaCy GEveryone that hurt me's gonna Fpay AmHow could such a short time feel so lCong? GHow could such a young life go so wroFng?
BridgeGtr. 1: strum Em 4 times. After that, Gtr. 2 hit (hard) the low D string 3 times. Then to verse 2
Verse 2Gtr. 1 EmSee me hear me but don't tAmouch me, you should Gfear me cuz I'm cEmlearly... cuz I'm seriously distruAmbed that's my wGord don't wake my mEmother just wake my brother cuz i found anotAmher who want to play suckeGr and I ain't the Emone who put shade in your sun and took all your shAmine... watch me get miGne feel how it buEmrns to pay for my sins watch the world tuAmrn inside the begiGnin' losses and winEms angels and demons dancin' on tAmop of the head of a pGin don't know where I'm gEmoin' but I know where I been Can't hear a sounAmd, clap me for pouGnd I came to get doEmwn I came to get dirty Am& G& I came to get even (even, even even)
OutroGtr. 1 Gtr. 2 (clean) AmPlease mama don't cry CPlease mama don't cry GPlease mama don't cry you did nothing wFrong repeat w/o lyrics 1 time. End on F. Notes: I couldn't find the exact lyrics, so I did the best by ear. If anyone knows the real lyrics, drop me a line. During the chorus, on Gtr. 1, instead of just going from Am to C, it sounds better if you go Am, C/B, C, hitting C/B for one beat. Listen to the song to get the timing on that right. For Gtr. 2, I know you can play an A chord with the base note on the A string, but you need to get the slide up to the C, then back down to the G and F. So start at the 7th fret, slide to the 10th, then slide down to the 5th, then the 3rd. It sounds weird at first, but that's the way it is on the CD. Gtr. 2: distortion. Everlast uses what I like to call the "NIN Fuzz" on this song. What I mean by "NIN Fuzz" is a heavy distortion, but with low tone quality. If you have amp distortion, I recomend using that with either your neck pickup or using both neck and bridge pickups, and your tone knob either all the way, or halfway down. If you're using a pedal, just put the distortion down to about half, turn the tone down about 2/3rds of the way, and turn up the volume, since doing this takes you down a lot. Or you can use mild distortion with a fuzz pedal, or distortion with a phaser pedal, with the phase about halfway. I just use the amp distortion method. For the outro, there's still distortion, but not enough for it to be palm muted. So I recomend either just palm muting Gtr. 2, or just playing Gtr. 2 clean.
