"Dune Buggy" by The Presidents of the United States of America

Tabbed by : Ian Wilson (cadmium@interlog.com)

I tabbed this song because none of the versions I've found on the web, or even
in the OLGA sound right, and all require some wierd tuning on your guitar.

This whole work is transcribed by me (even the lyrics), amd none of this work
is a copied or modified version of any other Dune Buggy tab I've seen.

This just goes to show that most PUSA songs DON'T need funky tunings or less
strings to sound right.  Keep your guitar tuned to normal EADGBe and you'll
be ready to rock.

This was tabbed off of the live version that also appeared as a music video, but
sounds exactly the same as the version on the first album.  The only differences
are with some of the lyrics.

Some lyrics are placed under the bars to help you with the timing.  A "^" means
bend up (all bends in this tab are 1/2 a step up).  An "x" means a muted strum
(just play the chord like normal, but don't press down).

Have fun!

* After each bend up, keep it bent up to play one more note.  The last note in
  the riff is just a normal note.

       Little........Blue........Dune Buggy


Here's the song with riff guidelines.  Just keep playing the riff until it tells
you to play a new one.  It's a good idea to play along with the song a couple
times before you can do it on your own.  Dave plays the alternate verse riff
during most of the last verse and then switches back to the normal one.

(Intro)
(Verse Riff)
A little blind spider took the wheel,
Navigating grass blades completely by feel,
Gotta, sassy chasse, sparkle in the sun,
All four small bald fat tires, rockin' through the sand and burnin' up
(Chorus)
Little dune buggy, in the sand, little blue dune buggy, in my hand, yeah!
(Intro)
(Verse Riff)
I got a, rubber band motor hummin' on the beach, ready for fun,
Quit spinning that web and come out and play, in the sun,
8 thimble sized cylinders, to be as smooth as you please,
Spider's badass fat old abdomen is stuck in the bucket seat
(Chorus)
My little dune buggy, in the sand, little blue dune buggy, in my hand, yeah!
(Intro)
(Alt Verse Riff)
Squishy transmission, caught in drive,
Spiderman staring at the sand and the sky,
Spiderwoman in the front seat, screaming GO GO GO!
He's pushin' the accelerator down the the floor
(Verse Riff)
With his fuzzy little toe wow wow wow wow wow
(Chorus)
Little dune buggy, in the sand, little blue dune buggy, in my hand, yeah!
(Intro)
(Pre-Outro)
My little blue dune buggy, my little blue dune buggy,
My little blue dune buggy, my little blue dune buggy,
My little blue dune buggy, my little blue dune buggy,
My little blue dune buggy, my little blue dune buggy,
             (Outro)
Alright now, Little........Blue........Dune Buggy
