In the town of Milton one Brian Flannigan battered away till his
money was spent Then he hit a big one and felt like a man again,
Bought a three decker with two floors for rent

He threw a big party for friends And relations at a grand old
place called Florian Hall And if you'll just listen I'll make
your eyes glisten To the rows and the ructions of Flannigan's ball.

the last 2 powerchords of this section occure after "rent" and during the word "ball"

Chorus part B

let the x's represent rests (NOT MUTED NOTES),

synchopated rythm to it...
