Subject: Tab: Burn Me Up by Oingo Boingo
Here's the tab for one of the cooler songs on the Farewell Album. It
starts with sax.
|B 2 2 |
|G 0 0 |
|D 4 2 4 2 |
|A 4 4 |
C#5 G F#
| 6 |
| 6 5 4 4 |
| 4 5 4 4 |
| 3 2 0 2 0 |
The Chorus is this:
F# - open E - F# - open E - F# - open - G - F#
C# - B - C# - B - D - C# - B
that's a fairly basic version of the song.
The song would sound especially good on a guitar with a tremolo (Whammy)
Bar during the interlude section with the three guitars playing different
bent notes creating a ghostly moaning effect.
I would like to be a martyr, over time it's getting harder.
Who do I have to go and kill to get my face on a dollar bill.
Every single time I look, someone else has beat me to it.
Some poor bastard bites the dust, I really don't know who to trust.
But there's one thing I can't deny, I'd rather it was me they fried.
Have a drink from an empty cup, light a match and burn me up.
I'm exhausted, I'm committed. I'm outsmarted, I'm outwitted.
My head's filled with dynamite, it's coming out of my ears at night.
