sure it isnt   good, thats the impression that i get.

2nd verse lyrics:
have you ever had the odds stacked up so high,
you have a strength most dont possess?
has it ever come down to do or die,
you gotta rise above the rest?

(after the verse and chorus twice it goes into this part)

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
The Impression That I Get

I wanted to learn this song really bad but no one posted it. So I said screw it and figured it out myself.  It may not be perfect but it's about as close as you can get.

It sounds better if you use bar chords instead of power chords

Pre-Chorus

F# A twice

Chorus

the chorus is the same as the verse except you hold each chord for 6 counts

	Thats about it.  Hope you enjoyed it.  The timing isn't really
correct so listen
to the cd when you play it.  And listen to ska becuase the intro is a ska
rythum.
