This song here is one of the best songs by Beck, and is the first single
Off of their album "Guero". The main guitar riff is very catchy, and totry to get it out of my head I have tabbed it here.
Beck, being kind of a strange guy, decided to tune the guitar part down
a quarter step. I spent a short time wondering what was wrong with my
guitar and why it sounded slightly off no matter how I played it.
The dots under the tab are just to show where the beat is.

See me comin to town with my soul
Straight down out of the world with my fingers
Holding onto the devil that I know
All my troubles 'll hang on your trigger
Take your eyes and your mind from the road
Shoot your mouth off but look where you're aiming
Don't forget to pick up what you sow
Talking trash to the garbage around you
See me kickin the door with my boots
Broke down out in a ditch of old rubbish
Snakes and bones in the back of your room
Handing out a confection of venom
Heaven's drunk from the poison you use
Charm the wolves with the eyes of a gambler
Now I see it's a comfort to you
Hammer my bones on the anvil of daylight
I won't give up that ghost
It's sick the way these tongues are twisted
The good in us is all we know
There's too much left to taste that's bitter
Na na na na na na na na...
