Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: Paul¥s solo is fairly easy, lots of open E-string here. The onlyHard part is the pull-off lick really. Riffs that have a and b parts areplayed at the same time (usually a is by Paul and b is by Ace).

Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t^   = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\)  = Dive w\bar
(/)  = Release w\bar
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum

[Rhy. Fig 1a w/ Rhy. Fig 1b] (3x)

[Rhy. Fig 2a]
I took a ride with a one way ticket
I aimed my arrow at the mark and hit it
We all need to be somebody
[Rhy. Fig 2a w/ Rhy. Fig 2b]
Been broken down, but not defeated
I kept on punching back till I succeeded
We all need to be somebody, now
[Rhy. Fig 3]

[Rhy. Fig 4]
We stop at nothing, even climb barbed wire
We struck a match and set the world on fire
And if we tried, we couldn't get much higher, now

[Rhy. Fig 5a w/ Rhy. Fig 5b]
(Ohh) Everyone around the nation
Standing pround 'cause we're the champions

[Rhy. Fig 2a]
We pushed it all, beyond the limit
We took our chances and we jumped right in it
We all need to be somebody
[Rhy. Fig 2a w/ Rhy. Fig 2b]
Now I believe, in strength in numbers
Went into battle with a force of thunder
We all need to be somebody

[Rhy. Fig 4]
I wanna shout it out with all my power
I wanna scream it from the highest tower
I want to celebrate our finest hour, now

[Rhy. Fig 5a w/ Rhy. Fig 5b]
(Ohh) Everyone around the nation
Standing pround 'cause we're the champions

[Rhy. Fig 6a w/ Rhy. Fig 6b]
Oh, you gotta give it your all
You gotta know what you're after
And go, we'll make it over the wall together

[Solo over Rhy. Fig 1a w/ Rhy. Fig 1b] (2x)
[Rhy. Fig 7] (2x)
I took a ride with a one way ticket
I shot my arrow at the mark and hit it
(Everyone around the nation)
When all the others only talked, i did it
Kept pushing everything beyond the limit
[Rhy. Fig 8]
You play the game, you gotta play to win it

[Rhy. Fig 5a w/ Rhy. Fig 5b] (2x)
Everyone around the nation
Raise your glasses, raise your glasses
