Subject: TAB Don't Call Me White by NOFX UPDATED

NOFX --- Don't Call Me White 
as performed on the Punk-O-Rama album (and I think Punk in Drublic)

Transcribed by Gus Perez (gperez@netcom.com)
Email me any comments or questions.

Anyone and everyone is allowed to add their 2 cents and correct whatever
I did wrong...correct the lyrics also, I'm sure I'm wrong there a couple 
of times.  I didn't get this off the Punk In Drublic album so I didn't 
have access to the lyrics, I had to guess at them.  I don't even know if
the PID album even has the lyrics...

REVISION: 5/12/95:
I thank the (three people who mailed me the lyrics to this song.  I have now
updated the tab so the lyrics are correct (should be, at least).  
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Played in standard E tuning.  Lots of distortion, pretty high presence.

               F#5          A5      E5 
Don't call me white, don't call me white
               F#5          A5      E5 
Don't call me white, don't call me white


     F#5          A5              E5
Your connotations wearing my nuts thin
     F#5                 A5             E5
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in
F#5      A5
I understand that language
F#5         E5
breeds stereotype
    A5
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?

               F#5          A5      E5
Don't call me white, don't call me white
               F#5          A5      E5
Don't call me white, don't call me white

F#5      A5                  E5
I wasn't brought here, I was born
     F#5            A5                E5
Circumsized, categorized, allegiance sworn
          F#5            A5
does this mean I have to take such shit
F#5                     E5
for being fair skinned, no!
    A5
I ain't part of no conspiracy, I'm just your average Joe

               F#5          A5      E5
Don't call me white, don't call me white
               F#5          A5      C#5
Don't call me white, don't call me white


           C#5 [palm muted]
Represents everything I hate
         A5                          E5
The soap shoved in your mouth to cleanse the mind
       C#5                          C#5 [palm muted]
A vast majority I've sheep, a buttoned collar, starched and bleached
                     A5
constricting veins, the blood flow to the brain slows
     E5
they're so fuckin ordinary


F#5          A5      E5
White, Don't call me white

INTERLUDE OF NOISE & FEEDBACK (cool...) 

E5ii        D5            A5
Oh, we're better off this way
E5ii     D5               A5
Oh, say what you're gonna say
F#5             A5            F#5            E5
So go ahead and label me, an asshole cause I can
   A5                                                         F#5
Accept responsibility for what I've done, but not for who I am

       A5      E5
Don't call me white
               F#5          A5      E5
Don't call me white, don't call me white
