I know she hears you cry, I know she makes you laugh,
F#
Itchy and Scratchy come runnin' up the alley,
G
If you'd be good, I'd be good to your Daddy,
Bm
Who loves you but I bet it's not the same
E G
As your, North Country Boy.
Instrumental
Play the intro riff again. There's a harmonic pumping out behind it
This time. This can be found by lightly touching the 3rd (G) string
Directly above the 5th fret - don't press down, but play the string
And it should ring. It may need a bit of distortion to bring it out.
Then the guitar solo starts. I think it's played with a slide, but
If you don't have one or an empty pint-glass to hand, it sounds
Alright by just fretting the notes with your fingers and add plenty
Of vibrato.

Outro
A weird chord starts playing, I think it's C#7b5 but you play it
Like this:
E|--7--| This is played a few times with that
B|--8--| Fret five harmonic repeating.
G|--6--| Finally the original intro riff comes
D|-----| back in, plus ad lib vocals and
A|-----| the song fades out.
E|-----|
The End
