"A History of Bad Men" – 6:43

Originally released on (A) Senile Animal, 2006.

Lyrics

Wake up, you never looked so glum
Tell me how will we know they can't hear us coming?
It's easy for me, I got a headstart running away


Keep up or your disease spread quick
So how did you learn to be sick, so cunning
It's easy to sing but you just keep on humming along


Did you hear that, I got a real bad feeling
How many moans do you suppose they're keeping?
Don't make a sound they're not dead, just sleeping


Dire, dire, dire, it's fleeting (5x)

Guitar Tab

Drop-D

riff one - play 2x:

    1    +    2    +    3    +    4    +
D   3              0              6
A   3              0              6
D---3--------------0---------0----6----0----


then:

     1    +    2    +    3    +    4    +
D    3    2    3    0              6    0
A    3    2    3    0              6    0
D----3----2----3----0---------0----6----0----


then:

     1    +    2    +    3    +    4    +
D    3    5    3    0              6    0
A    3    5    3    0              6    0
D----3----5----3----0---------0----6----0----


"Dire, It's fleeting" part:

faster tempo - bend the D notes on the downbeats, release them on the offbeats:

     1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +
D
A    5b r  5b r  5b r  5b r
D-----------------------------


bass part (I think it's just bass) = something like this on low D string:

     1    +    2    +    3    +    4    +
D----2-/--3----3--/-0---------3-/--5----5--/0---


ending (slow tempo): let all notes ring

     1    +    2    +    3    +    4    +  
D    0     
A    0 
D    0--------------------------------------
D    3                             3    5
A    3                             3    5
D    3-----------------------------3----5---
