by The Polka Bastards This transcription from a live performance, but originally from their debut album "Fishin' License." Transcribed by Christopher M. Knuth. Here it is! I have had many a request for this one, I was surprised to see the Polka Bastards were not on Olga. I think this is pretty close I watched them play it at a recent concert in the Twin Cities.

The intro is the underlying progession of almost the whole song.
