Title: Hitchin' A Ride
Band: Green Day

Music by Green Day

Okay, I had my guitar tuned differently and I found this easier way to play
"Hitchin A Ride".

Tune it like this: DADGBE

Intro: Play this twice for intro
D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8   
A|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8 
D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8   

Play that over and over for the verses.  

Verse 1:
        
Hey mister, where are you headed?
Are you in a hurry?
I need a lift to happy hour, 
say oh no!
Do you break for distilled spirits?
I need a break as well.
The well that inebriates the guilt.
1, 2. 1, 2, 3, 4.

D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8   Play 4 times with lots of 
A|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8   distortion. On last time leave
D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8   out 5-5-7-8.

Verse 2:
Cold turkeys gettin stale.
Tonight I'm eatin crow.
Fermented salmonella,
poison oak, no!
There's a drought at The Fountain of Youth,
And now I'm dehydrating.
My tongue in swelling up, I say 
1,2. 1,2,3,4!

D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8   Play 4 times with lots of 
A|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8   distortion.       
D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8  

Chorus:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/g/green_day/hitchin_a_ride_crd.html ]
D|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-5-5
A|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-5-5
D|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-5-5
             Troubled times    you know I cannot lie

D|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--
A|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--
D|2--2--2--2--4--4--4--4--
       I'm off the wagon and I'm hitchin' a ride.
                                                        
Bridge: (Play same as verses.)

There's a drought at the fountain of youth
and now I'm dehydrating.
My tongue is swelling up I say.......(don't play here)
shit!

Outro:

D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8      Play that 8x
A|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8      On last one leave out 5-5-7-8 and
                                                                       
D|9--9--7--7--6--6--5-5-7-8      Billie Joe says some kinda jibberish.      
   No,     no       way! Hitchin a ride!
   (I think thats what they say)

and finally play this:

E|-4-|
B|-4-|
G|-4-|
D|-4-|
